The sad thing is that only 10 days before Flybe folded, they had finally got down to their aspired two type fleet of Dash 8-400s and E175s, maybe if things had been managed better, they had a bit more cash flow and a little longer then they might have weathered this storm.
I doubt very that they would have weathered this storm.
