To be more exact, at about 1:18 into the programme (audio here), WW was asked about flybe pointing to Brexit as one of the reasons for its failure, and he said:
"I think flybe was making up a number of excuses for what has been a poor performance over a number of years, so quite honestly I would dismiss what flybe has said, because it's not really relevant to the industry at large. There are issues that Brexit means we need to address, but these are issues that the industry at large and certainly IAG can address without too much concern."
