Summer seat sale!!

Interesting e-mail from Flybe yesterday, urging booking of a staycation in UK. It advertised 500k seats for sale in August and September for travel in UK Offering examples of Norwich, Glasgow and the Channel Islands of Jersey and Guernsey, (which are outside the uk). Political boundaries aside, assuming a Dash 8, 78 seats per flight, the 500k seats sale equates to 105 flights a day through 1st August till 30 Sep.

That's a heck of a bookings shortfall for the peak summer period!

Cuts to the schedule ahead perhaps...
