This is my ISP subnet. Airport picking up perfectly DHCP details- shows green light but unfortunately not 'passing' any internet traffic.

Is it setup as a 'router'? I'm not that familiar with this product but its designed as an 'access point' so you may need to configure it to be in 'router' mode to allow devices connecting to it to get internet...

Is this a new device or a new connection to your ISP? Meaning have you had this working before?
So you have this device and its connected to the ISP's modem I assume?

Please verify the subnet mask
/31 only allows 2 IP addresses,
I think your subnet mask should be /30 which is a normal point to point link. That allows 2 hosts, 1 network ID and 1 broadcast  
You will then have 1 IP while the ISP has the 2nd available IP

correct /31 - 255.255.255.254 and airport express not working. I've asked them (my provider) to change it to /29 - 255.255.255.248 and everything is up and running.

The Airport doesn't support a /31.
