There is clearly an issue at Stobart Air at the moment and it centres on the E195 routes and a missing aircraft. I posted a question on this subject a few days back in the Stobart thread as Iím ever more nervous about a flight Iím taking which also seems to be continually hit. Touchwood (I say this as Iím flying SEN-MAN-SEN tomorrow) the normal ATR routes arenít affected and seem to run very punctually. But over the last few weeks there has been a random selection of aircraft doing particular routes - CGN, DUB, GLA, LYS - Bulgaria Air, Titan and Stobartís own additional ATR. Itís the latter where delays really build up. The problem for BE is it is their name on the ticket and on the side of the plane (unless youíre in a plain white Titan 737), their social media harassed by angry pax and their name in the papers.

That said the waters are a bit muddied because the problem E195s have come from BE themselves.
