They probably have sufficient members - hoteliers/business people etc - to be able to put on one plane a month to the UK through the winter and know they can fill it sufficiently without making a financial loss. They probably wouldn't have the administrative capacity to be able to advertise, sell and administer ticketing for any spare seats each month.
Or maybe not ...
You may well be right. It's actually one a week though, not one a month, as I pointed out in earlier posts, which is quite surprising to me.
So I'm still really curious as to what this is about. I had hoped that one of our forum members in the travel business or who works at the airport might shed some light. It doesn't seem like tickets are going to be available anyway.
