    The powers that be in the aviation sector must understand how vital Bermuda is to flights crossing the Atlantic. Are these diverted flight being charges landing fees? And before you all get troll on me, I am just asking out of curiosity. I don’t think for 1 second planes should be denied emergency landing. I only ask because this is becoming an all too common occurrence of late.

  2. In reference to other flights diverting to Bermuda I don’t believe they are charged…Now as for British Airway having this monopoly on that route from England, subsequently all flights from that side of the world aren’t permitted to fly here on a regular basis, and charge a decent airfare as oppose to being compelled to pay the outrageous airfares British Airways charge :-(
    B.A. has everyone leaving Bermuda making connecting flight at Gatwick or Heathrow by the short and curly. They too often cancel flights leaving their paid passenger stranded here or there. My wife and I travel via England almost annually to Dubai and then onto our Asian destination but have been “inconvenient” by British Airways cancellations. There ought to be a Law!

      Any other airline is free to fly here from Europe, except there is no market for it.
