6 daily flights in the E195 will provide 732 seats daily on the LGW route, compared to 892 at the moment with 11 flights and the AT7/E75 mix. If both carriers are currently operating at 75 - 80 per cent loads, it should work out although it would mean a rather tricky 90 per cent plus load factor for Aurigny on the E195 (guess they could always throw in a second daily STN ATR72 rotation catering for travellers who are flexible enough to travel through STN).

If loads for both carriers are lower than 75 per cent, it should be not problem at all capacity-wise and as both operators are operating from the GCI end of the route, there will also be no loss of early morning departures from LGW or late evening departures from GCI when Flybe exits the market.
