Alderney's Chamber of Commerce has slammed Aurigny's delayed transition from Trislanders to Dornier aircraft as an 'unmitigated disaster'. They are now having emergency talks with Guernsey about Aurigny's failure to deliver.
Aurigny has been branded a disaster, with Alderney politicians, business leaders and travellers saying the airline has caused chaos.
It is after all of the Trislander planes which serve the island were grounded, leaving the island with no air links.
Aurigny's apologising and says a four-month delay in replacing those aircraft is 'beyond their control.'
It is understood emergency talks are being held in Guernsey about Aurigny's failure to deliver the new planes on time.
Alderney's government says unless there is an urgent resolution, they'll charter a plane and expect Aurigny to foot the bill.

A new scheme to help support people who suffer from bowel cancer has been launched in Guernsey.
'Mary's Wish' was set up in memory of Mary Sebire, a former Trustee of Bowel Cancer Guernsey. It aims to put people in touch with others who have been affected.
Bowel cancer is the third most common form of cancer in the islands. There are around 40 to 45 cases per year, and it particularly affects people over 65.
It claims around a dozen lives a year, but if detected early, more than 90% of those diagnosed with early stage bowel cancer are successfully treated.

Jersey's States' new Sports Champion, Steve Pallett, concedes 'money will be tight' over the coming years.
Constable Pallett - who is also Assistant Education, Sport and Culture (ESC) Minister - has just been installed as the person charged with promoting sport and attracting investment.
The move will also see Sport come under the umbrella of Economic Development rather than ESC, as the States targets more funding for sport.
But he warned: "Money will be tight over the next three or four years. I think I've got to fight for sport when the Medium Term Financial Plan comes around [in 2016] just to make sure [various sports] are supported in the right way."

The Royal Court has rejected an application by Nick Le Cornu and Gino Risoli to challenge the result of the election in St Helier District No 1.

It was ruled that Mr Wickenden's failure to comply was both, "technical" and "inadvertent", therefore not a matter of substance.
Mr Le Cornu has issued a reply to the media.
