J32's

Anyone happen to know if G-BUVC and G-BUVD are in operation with Eastern at the moment or in storage. Also if they are leased or owned outright by Eastern ?

Thanks,

What do you think of Eastern operating CWL-LCY on a J41 as i would certainly use the service?

Perhaps the Eastern limitation out of Wick, with some 1800 metres of runway, would not be so much a take off limit there as a landing weight limit at Aberdeen, through which their southbound flights pass. Since it is probable that the fuel price index is less at Aberdeen than at Wick; I should have thought that a fuel uplift at that through point southwards would be perhaps of a twofold necessity?

G-BUVD was at Wick today. Also Have seen Eastern taking fuel on at Wick on a number of occasions same with Loganair.

T3 Recruitment

They have an ad in the local press here for cabin crew.

However as I'm +5ft 10, I'm out!

4 more routes out of ABZ.

Think CWL may be one. Possibly LCY another. And a stab in the dark, BRU as another? Which leaves a.n.other other.

Those extra Jetstreams gotta go somewhere!!!

Think you're wrong here - first flight on the booking engine is 2 October.

It was when I looked!!!

I'm not lying!!! Honest!!!

When I checked the schedule of CWL-BRU..it said it resumed from September 11th....

Just looked now, and it indeed says October 2nd......

Your guess is as good as mine.....

Cheers....

Does anyone have a list of actual crew bases for Eastern? Also, where are the Saab 2000s based?

They have pilots (and CC) based at the following airports...

Aberdeen, Cardiff, Chester/Hawarden, Durham Tees Valley, Humberside, Inverness, Isle of Man, Leeds/Bradford, Manchester, Newcastle, Norwich, Nottingham East Midlands, Southampton and Wick

Of which they have Saab 2000 crews at Aberdeen (ABZ-NCL-SOU) and Norwich (NWI-ABZ) and J32 crews I imagine are at Aberdeen and Wick
