Flybe nosedives on profits warning

I'm a bit young for all this but what year did crime start exactly? From what I can gather it was round about the early 70's

My dress-sense was certainly a crime against taste from about ‘70 onwards so you’re on to something.

Just got notification that October flights to Bristol & return are cancelled, looks like this may be another route going the way of the London City one.

fairly soon we will be left with Loganair to Liverpool & Manchester plus steam packet all subsidized by tax payers. If borde restrictions aren't eased soon we will have to start own airline at great expense as no airlines will bother flying here.

Except lcy is not stopping. 

Brs, like all ezy routes here are really only schedule fillers so always vulnerable to changes elsewhere, not always to do with your border obsession

LCY is stopping, 12 September. Announced weeks ago. No other airline has stepped in.

Ive been booked on a mid December theatre and shopping weekend since January. BA haven’t confirmed cancellation. I phoned them as I wanted my money back. Yes it’s cancelled. No they wouldn’t refund me there and then. They’re working through in date order and will contact me in due course. I assume that’s to massage cash flow.

The nice lady said I was provisionally rerouted via Aer Lingus Regional to Dublin with a 6 hour stop over outbound and a 9 hour stop over return ( with a 06.30 departure on my return - which would mean getting up at 04.00 ). That’s just not acceptable. 

I notice, this week,  that Aer Arran/Aer Lingus Regional are no longer shown as  flying IoM DUB those dates. I was due in Dublin the week before the London trip, and now the only way of getting there is via EZY to Liverpool and then Ryanair. With an overnight.

Has anyone FOId this shit to find out how much it’s costing to have air routes carrying an average of about 4 people each way right now?

It's a good question. Same with the Steam Packet - why on earth are both the Ben and Mannanan running?
