EuroManx Passenger Reviews and EuroManx Customer Trip Reports

Happy to report that I use EuroManx regularly now for all business trips
to and from London and have found them to be punctual and reliable. They
now serve refreshments on board and in general the service on board is
excellent - in particular I witnessed a great display of kindmess and
consideration from the flight attendant towards an elderly passenger on
a recent flight. Add in the flexibility that Euromanx offer (like the
old Manx Airlines in being able to catch earlier flights for minimal
penalty) and you have a winner in my opinion. Such a difference to the
airline that was when I posted my first comment!

EuroManx (Isle of Man) continues to enjoy outstanding schedule
punctuality stats and was recently recongised by Manchester airport to
hold the number 1 position in May 2006 beating airlines such as BA,
Virgin, Emirates, Jet2, BMI, FlyBe and Etihad to name but a few. In
addition, EuroManx at London City held the top position for the period
Jan, Feb & Mar 2006. We are certainly focused on our customer and
recognise the importance of schedule punctuality. In addition the
introduction of complimentary refreshments on our Manchester and London
City flights and the launch of our Frequent Flyer Programme shows that
we really do care and listen to what our customers want.

After many different experiences (see below) I decided to try Euromanx
again and I am delighted to say that I found the LCY service excellent.
Flight more or less on time both ways. Connections into London now much
easier with the new DLR link. And all at a price substantially less than
the ridiculous (on the IOM - London routes at least) BA Connect concept.

BHD-IOM-MAN. BHD-IOM on a subleased Emerald BAe ATP, which was showing
its age. Flight on time, and totally nondescript. IOM-MAN was on a new
Dornier 328 -only 10 of us on it, and the single crew member did a
fantastic job doing the safety demo all on her own, and particularly
comforting an elderly passenger who was distressed by the turbulence. As
with the previous flight no service apart from an offer of a glass of
water, and a boiled sweet for landing. You don't need much more for less
than 25 minutes in the air though!

I take it all back. Having travelled weekly with them to Dublin for
nearly three months, they have now 'pulled' the flights on Tuesday &
Wednesday mornings with less than a week's notice. That means another
overnight in the hotel - £150 if I want to meet my commitments!

I must speak in praise of the excellent flights my wife and I had from
Stansted to Ronaldsway, IOM and return - slight delay outward but on
time returning. Booking on-line was easy and painless. Keep up the

I have been working in Dublin for 2 months and have made 7 return trips IOM-DUB. It may be tempting
fate but the longest delay has been 30 minutes, and they have been polite and courteous on every
flight. Load factors may be an issue - haven't seen a Dornier over 75% full yet, and when the Dash 8
is used there are rows of empty seats.

Out from STN to IOM on 26 September, return IOM STN on 29 September.
Planes were ATR42 chartered from Air Atlantique. Plane half full going
out, virtually empty coming back. Both more or less on time so no
complaints there. No onboard service to speak of, but then it was only
£107 return with taxes etc. A question: why is Euromanx chartereing
planes when it has four or five in its colours sat doing nothing at IOM?
Or are these ex lease?? I also noticed that the cafe in Ronaldsway
airport departures will not accept Euromanx food/drink vouchers
(handwritten notice stuck above till) - so clearly either bad at paying
its debts or about to collapse.

Flew Euromanx LCY to IOM return for the first time. I frequently travel to the Isle of Man but
have always used BA from LGW. I will revert to BA for my next trip! I don't understand why I'm
paying a full-service fare for no-service service, where for some reason boiled sweets are
passed around before take-off, in a pointless nod to 1970's air travel, but all drinks and
snacks have to be paid for - £1.50 for a small water! The cabin crew are just not up to what
really is a simple job:- as I travel frequently I don't really watch the safety demo any more,
but I looked up at the demo on the outbound flight to see the stewardess stifling laughter
throughout. What sort of image does that convey? I found it amusing on the flight on the way
back - I bought a soft drink at IOM airport and took it on board with me, to save paying on-
board prices. When I'd finished it the crew refused to clear the empty bottle away! Anyway, at
least I know why on both legs the flight was relatively empty - I had a row of seats to
myself both ways. Compare it to the full BA service from LGW and I now know why. I can't profess
to really suffering with delays/etc like others who have posted comments, but it's these little
things that matter when you travel so often, so back to BA for me.

I agree with these previous comments. My 30 minute flight from Liverpool to Isle Of
Man was delayed for 2hrs 45 minutes so I decided not to travel and asked for a refund.
After nearly 3 months I have finally got my refund. They have been polite at all times
and offered me a travel voucher for a free return domestic flight.

I too have had bad experiences of Euromanx. However, coming back from a continental
holiday on Saturday 6th August, we arrived at Liverpool earlier than planned. We
asked the desk at Liverpool of the possibilities to transfer to an earlier flight. It
was done with a smile and no extra charge. It's not all bad news!

I travel from the Isle of man to Dublin quite often as I have family over there and
like others I have flown Euromanx on a few occasions and found them to be very
expensive and quite often not on time. I now fly Aer Arann to Dublin, and find them to
be much cheaper and flight times are pretty much the same as Euromanx. For the family
being quoted 600+ I would recommend you try AerArann's website and I'm sure you'll
find a cheaper flight - and the site is much easier to use than Euromanx. I for one
will always choose Aer Arann over Euromanx as the fare is cheaper and I hope other
carriers begin to compete with euromanx on other routes.

As in the other comments, Euromanx pricing is fast becoming a joke.
Must be nice to be the only airline on many of their routes hence the
following quote for a weekend away from IOM in Ireland (out Thurs 15
Sep back Sun 18 Sep) for myself, wife and two year old daughter which is
just plain silly - Dublin (flight time 30 mins) £603 rtn. Just what the
island needs, a company adding to the cost of doing business here!!

I concur with the general criticisms and experiences. As it stands this
airline will never support a thriving financial community on the island.
Note comments on return prices to London City. However, our thoughts
must be lodged with the Office of Fair Trading apparently for them to be
taken as having any relevence. Never mind customer services. Let's
hope this is truly an island airline, let's hope it proves to be in the
near future before its supporters run out of patience and
the Isle of Man significantly loses out. Is there room for a true local
entrepreneur here? Euromanx we are hoping you make it, let's sort it

The island's favourite airline? Someone is having a joke. Anyone who has logged on to book
flights recently won't be seeing the funny side though. 150.00 return to Liverpool. 320.00
return to London city. Meanwhile they're advertising 'autumn farecrackers'. We're an island.
The airline needs to be our access to the UK on a regular basis, not a twice yearly holiday
trip. We need an airline that understands this and instead of promoting off peak flights and
advance bookings provides reasonably priced seats all the time.

I recently experienced EuroManx at it's most inept. We had a 16 hour delay for our
flight back to Liverpool from the IOM although it transpired that our flight did in
fact leave with a hold full of everyone's baggage but with a compliment of 2
passengers ! No explanation was forthcoming from the comedy team that doubled as the
EuroManx ground staff. They did put us up in a hotel for the night and requested we
return the next morning for our flights. Next morning was just as chaotic with people
being shunted from one flight to the next. Even when we were boarding, a very
embarrassed EuroManx rep' had to ask a couple to vacate the flight as it was full and
an elderly couple needed seats for a hospital appointment. I have also written a very
strong letter of complaint to EuroManx and have tried to contact the Customer Service
Contact - all to no avail. EuroManx make EasyJet seem like a by-word for 'professional
efficiency'. I have never witnessed such chaotic scenes with an airline. A complete

Euromanx took over Emerald Airways IOM schedules recently. We are still waiting to be
informed by Euromanx that they have done so, although we have been booked for 3
months to fly by Emerald in August to IOM. Euromanx have a terrible reputation for
punctuality and sudden cancellations of flights at minimum notice - eg when one has
actually arrived at the airport to take a flight

Euromanx normally charters other airlines to fly the Dublin route.
So on Mondays, don't be surprised that the 9:15am to Isle of Man is delayed for anything from 1 to 5
hours. How this affects the rest of the day's schedule is anyone's guess.
And flying back to Dublin on a Friday evening can be equally frustrating.
One Monday we flew on FarnAir (common charter used) to Isle of Man via Belfast. The airline crew had
no idea that we were not getting off in Belfast. Only when we had landed and no passenger got off,
did they radio for further instructions.
Going to Dublin on a Friday evening, a lady was asked if her 7 year old son could sit on her lap as
the airplane was short one seat (because Euromanx decided to change airplane from ATR42 to Jetstream
when they calculated that there weren't that many passengers anyway). A kind gentleman decided to
take an alternative flight to Dublin via Liverpool to save Euromanx blushes.

EuroManx's reputation slips further each day with cancelled and delayed flights. Recently my
girlfriend's flight from GLA to IOM was cancelled after she was kept waiting at the airport for
several hours. To EuroManx's credit, she was booked into an airport hotel and asked to return for
the morning flight. However, the morning flight was also delayed by almost two hours. I have
written to EuroManx's customer service contact (Melanie Gribbin) but to date have received no
response and leaves me wondering if I ever will. Other experiences of EuroManx are that of an
airline of almost comedy-making; pilots doubling as cabin staff, lack of cabin staff entirely, a
different chartered aircraft every time and, of course, all too common-place delays and
cancellations. I am fortunate in that BA also operate services to the destinations I travel
frequently to. I'll not be using EuroManx again until they can convince their customers of greatly

Booked to fly to LCY on EuroManx from IOM, following their takeover of the route from FlyBe. Booked
with some trepidation as there had been a lot of bad publicity over cancelled and delayed flights
on this route. Arrived at IOM airport for last evening flight out to be told there was a minimum 2
hour delay. When asked was the service definitely going to operate they would not give a definite
answer. In fairness they transferred us to the Stansted service with no quibbles or extra charges.
Flight to Stansted operated by another airline called Denim Air with a Dutch (I think) registered
aircraft and crew. Complimentary drinks etc. On return from LCY the flight left on time, but was
operated by yet another airline (Flighline) in a non descript UK registered BAE 146. This time all
drinks and snacks had to be paid for. This airline appears to have absolutely no consistency of
service whatsoever, be it onboard service, or the actual operator of the flight. Although LCY is
more convenient for business, I will use the BA LGW service until EuroManx can convince me that
their service is reliable, consistent, and being operated by the carrier it is advertised to be.
