Looking online to make a plane booking to Inverness in April, I discovered to my
horror that the first flight is at 8.45, with no other flight until 5pm, with the
Benbecula passengers arriving at 9.10 and unable to get to Inverness until the afternoon.
From the 28th of March, passengers travelling from Stornoway, to Benbecula have to
depart at the unearthly hour of 7.40am, while anyone from the Southern Isles will
be unable to get to Inverness until 6.40pm, missing the morning connection by 25
minutes this is truly shocking, and show the scant regard the airlines have for the
people of the Western Isles.
This timetable is ill conceived and totally unworkable, is it quite clear that the
travelling public was not considered in any aspect of this, but purely to suit the
airline and their needs alone.
