Shortly after Brymon replaced the DHC6 with the DHC7 on the PLY/EXT/LGW route I overheard a conversation between two Brymon flightcrew in the Exeter terminal cafe. They were puzzling over why passenger numbers had increased on the route since the introduction of the DHC7. After all, they could not fill a DHC6 but now the DHC7 loads exceeded the capacity of the Otter. Perhaps the Twin Otter and Bandit were the wrong aircraft for the route? Evidently the pax numbers from Exeter were insufficient to maintain the service though.
