The election won't change anything, and I say that after having lived for a very long time on the IOM and experienced many elections. In the end, any responsible business that feels stranded in the...

What you forget is that LCY set their landing fees, intentionally making the economics of utilising small aircraft unappealing. So that is one more disadvantage for IOM flights going straight to...

What you forget is that small operators have had to beg LCY for slots because LCY said years ago they didn't want any aircraft smaller than 70 seats. BA could get away with it because they basically...

All very true. What is forgotten too often is that it is not just an IOM decision. Destination airports don't want regional aircraft any more, because everyone knows bigger is better! So the IOM is...

In saying that you clearly do not know the IOM government. They are not inclined to act in any case that might prove beneficial to Island-based business. It is also not the case that...

Exactly right. But you may recall the IOM had all that and the government drove it all away. Think of it this way ------ what business of any substance has re-located to the IOM in the last 5 years? ...

I can remember that too, as I used it quite a lot. But the business complexion of the IOM has changed, and not for the better. Airlines don't see any profit, and so the service dries up. And Isle of...

That is a huge assumption in itself. The IOM Government have done nothing apart from closing the borders. Full stop. That is not dealing with the virus, that is running from it. There are parts of...

The days of starting on somebody else's AOC are, for all intents and purposes, dead. Any enquiry to the CAA will make that very clear. As regards the Isle of Man, they don't have their own version...

A new UK airline? Certainly could make sense with the right concept. But the problem in the UK is financing. UK investors don't have the appetite for risk that, for example, US investors have. The...

It was a joint decision insofar as the government were involved, who put it to easyJet that IOM borders are staying closed except for transiting key workers and exceptional cases. Hardly the stuff of...

How does one buy an AOC and, for that matter, slots without having either the organisation, finances or aircraft in place?
