Flybe however only have themselves to blame. No solid reassurance for their employees jobs before and now after the consortium take-over. This coupled with an extremely late winter schedule release - which would have reassured employees of future plans, then i can fully understand why so many have left or jumped ship to other airlines. I'm also not aware of any recruitment campaigns to make up for these losses, so i can't see the crewing issues ending any time soon.
The second aircraft went back out to Birmingham yesterday.
