Not a complaint as such - more an observation. The downside of the new slot system so far is that it penalises short sector operations even more than before. For regional turboprop operations, five rotations per day is my normal target. Out of Dublin, the slot set-up for my next four daily rotations has just come out at around $700,000. Growth does seem to be slower therefore, but the bias towards long-haul (greater returns for lower slot costs) is even higher than before. I appreciate that the aim is to slow slot consumption, but for airports such as Dublin with lower LH demand it leads to lots of waiting for cash to build.
At airports such as LHR this is understandable; at those with lower LH demand, it stifles us slightly, allowing those at larger airports (AMS for example) to subsidise their attacks to which we cannot respond quickly.
