Internal. Heard this today from a friend @ HKA aswell.
I'm sure it will be released shortly.
Still no confirmation here, official or unofficial. And I've asked around.

Also if you go to their website and try to book you'll see all future flights are "sold out"
Yep, checked that, and its correct.
Don't know what that means yet - could simply be a rejigging of the schedule. 7 days a week was crazy from the start. As was LGW IMHO.
Could be a schedule reduction, and/or a new destination, both of which would be welcome.

Regarding the fleet freeze - total units planned by end of 2012 was 23. That includes phasing out of 3 737-800's.
So if 20 is correct it's not such a massive hit after all. Could be accounted for by delay to the remaining A320 deliveries.
Three A330-300's are still due before hitting 20 units.
