I would suspect their presence at DSA is costing Peel and that BE are hapy to last out the agreed term with reasonable yield on the Sun Routes.

Sad for DSA at the end of the year if BE leave, but it will be the airport that will be seen to have failed rather than the airline not offering sustainable route frequency.
Actually, it's a very good point. Often it's the airport that has failed a route to be successful, not the actual airline. I know airports love "to know in advance" which routes they want to have, and suck airlines, if they are gullible, into doing it.
