More bad stuff on the IoW

Four days to swap round a couple of parked up ships ?

none given

@martin

yep – they need crews to do that who are not allocated to the timetabled services – that will require staff on overtime, who are not doing it. They therefore, have to drop scheduled services, to use the crews to move the other ships.

I bet many of these ‘revised’ sailings won’t take place. When Sicknote doesn’t turn up because he’s got a headache or wants to finish his Christmas shopping hundreds of passengers will be left stranded as has become the norm. Blasted customers, who needs ‘em.

@Just saying..

you say….When Sicknote doesn’t turn up because he’s got a headache

Perhaps sicknote is female. They have female crew at wightlink these days.

Just Saying

You’re quite right but putting he/she every time doesn’t make the sentence flow. Anyway just for you here is the female version just to level things up.

The beauty of living on an Island, more houses on the mainland IF you don’t like it.

Funny how it is blamed on essential maintenance for the Lymington to Yarmouth route. It’s only taken two or more years to fix the broken engine that’s causing the problem. But I suspect it is more likely down to consolidation of low numbers per sailing to maximise their profit and sod the customers
