Flybe nosedives on profits warning

Recommended Posts

I wouldnt be too excited about this announcement. Im expecting a small aircraft - <50 seats - with a majority of them booked out by patient transfer Mon-Fri.

Weekend flights aren't the problem, even easyJet is cheap there. It's the midweeks.

Transport minister says this problem would have taken 6 months to sort without open skies. Errrr - we wouldn't be in this god forsaken mess if we had our own operator running uncompeted on 'lifeline' routes.

And I hope that it's just an error from whoever updates the airport website..... but have EasyJet have pulled the plug or given their marching orders?

Due to the airport being shut for those 30 minutes due no ATC.

You think the ministers are bad, you're about to have Spake running around and flouncing like he's saved the day

The LCY cancellation - Not so sure it has anything to do with ATC here. They could have held or delayed on the ground in LCY to allow for that.

Not if it's a tech problem with the aircraft... and that ATR isn't exactly proving its' worth.
