Most of the routes can be operated using DH4 equipment - if the E195 was replaced by a the smaller aircraft, provided the yield was there, the routes, based on the one week numbers quoted would be fine.

Question is whether the purpose of the Doncaster base is to keep the E195s flying, or to grow a new market.
