MAN, BHX and BHD bases. W pattern into the others.

For Easy Jet.....BFS isn't convenient like BHD and the A320 is too big to make money when they're putting on 3/4/5 flights a day (as per their website) to BHX/MAN/GLA and EDI. If it would make money O'Leary would be doing it.
That amount of flights will be cut in short order as they will be half empty, they are just trying to put the kibosh on a restart. Given the cash they're currently burning at the moment they probably don't have the stomach to fly these routes/frequency for long - I'd do a limited service to BHD, GLA and EDI from BHX/MAN. Also Easy Jet do hardly any regional UK flights from MAN/BHX.

Is the British Government really going to rely on Blue Islands and Aurigny for Regional Connectivity on the South Coast?
Eastern Airways - Really.... might do a bit but think they're bit niche. They can have Middlesborough, Norwich and most of Leeds domestic traffic. I'd let they crack on and pay SOUs extortionate fees too.

BA - just do LHR and back

Logan Air - Main players! especially when they have the ATR fleet BUT they can't upscale quickly - it will take time to get the ATR! How will their finances be coming out of this mess and does the current 49 seat Jet and 34 seat Saab really provide the capacity to step up?
Politically - will Boris and the Westminster lot really want Tartan liveried planes connecting England to the regions and have to listen to Sturgeon banging on about it.

How-about a restart and codeshare between Logan and Flybe with a virtual Hadrians wall
