I agree with the above. The Stobart routes from SEN are an interesting collection, much more so than you would expect from FR and U2. The ATR routes in particular.

I still feel that Stobart may want to “go it alone” in some way with the SEN routes. Does the flyBe franchise really add very much in terms of sales/advertising/marketing? Is it just a cost which doesn’t appeal to the more egotistical side of the management? Or maybe Stobart feel they have built their own advertising and social media teams up to a point the can operate independently, depending on Skyscanner and Google flights for clicks?

Finally, as I have said elsewhere, there’s no obvious reason they couldn’t sell via ryanair.com, like Air Europa and Air Malta do for some flights.
