As of 1526hrs - unless the airport webcam is behind time - a yellow tailed Do.228 went from right to left at ground level presumably on tow... but both LGIS and OAUR are currently airborne....
Surely not G-SAYE?!

Probably so! SAYE is currently out of the hangar and moving slowly under its own steam.

Seat Pitch

Flew one of their ATR72 the other day
They have the new hard back leather seats
The seat pitch has definately reduced; have aurigny densified their cabins?

G-SAYE

G-SAYE is currently in the air - AUR100T.

Looks as though it did a circuit and then returned to the hangar.

A very brief, low-level circuit. First time in the air since the 4th April. Is there hope for this little beast?

Aurigny are dropping GCI-LCY. From the book of Face....
IMPORTANT CHANGES TO LONDON CONNECTIONS

Today we have announced changes to our London connections as we look to improve our London Gatwick service, the key lifeline route for Guernsey.

At the start of December, we will have our own team of staff at Gatwick Airport, providing our own ground handling service.

This will mean that passengers will be dealing with Aurigny staff throughout the whole travel experience, and there will be a dedicated team available at all times to help improve passenger communication and disruption handling.

The Gatwick route is a key lifeline service for the island and we felt it was important to have our own team, who will become familiar faces for regular travellers.

LONDON CITY
As part of the changes to our London operations, we have, with regret, taken the decision to bring to an end our London City service from the end of October.

We will be operating our last flight to London City on 27th October 2017, but the service will continue as normal until that date and customers can still book flights.

Will this be GR's own staff at LGW or will it be a dedicated team pulled from the existing ground handler I wonder - also will it include ramp staff? If it's GR's own staff this will cost a fortune to run & all for 38 flights a week - more madness from management.

I wonder if the Flybe fanchisee will take up the route & push the onward connections that are available? This being something GR were unable to do.

Isn't of thought if anyone was going to take over the route it would be BA with cityflyer who have suitable aircraft in the S2000 or E70

Jet2 also brought passenger ops in house as well, it's not unknown. Business is cyclical, outsource, insource and repeat....

A real shame to see this go
It really is the only business type flight to the island
Get BA back, would be great

GR509
FR24 appears to show G-OMAF leaving ACI for SOU today, climbing to 6.0, then turning back to divert to GCI. Does anyone know the reason? There is no sign of any replacement flight, so were pax put on a Flybe ATR72 to SOU?

When was this added to the fleet?

This decision perfectly illustrates the unrealistic calls by some in Guernsey for improved & more extensive air links. If a State owned monopoly, bailed out by the Guernsey taxpayer, cannot afford to operate a service to the nation's capital (which would apparently be so essential to the island's finance industry) , who can ? It also demonstrates that a runway extension is not going to achieve this either. All it would do is ensure that loss making services would be operated by larger a/c .....for a while !
