Chap in engineering reckons Boss Lakes been to the boxing day sales, 2 embraers are in the pipeline, for a vey specific contract.

They cost more to run, but if thats what the customer wants, and is willing to pay then no problem.

Doubt it !!
Lakes attitude was, and i would guess still is, "if you dont like it f**k off", hence why the conditions are so poor!

The business has to prioritise its spending.

Scrap thunderbird spacerockets (floodlit), porsche runabouts, vintage car racing team, replacement hats etc etc are all higher priority. This months deicer bill will probably require a whip round.

Any truth in the rumours that Eastern are now in talks with CHC re North Sea operations?

Would imagine that Eastern would work with any helicopter company - they always have in the past.

Alot of the recent norway routes added are rumored to have been at the request of certain helicopter operators.

A contract at Warton to replace highland is on the cards.

The Warton contract is on the cards OK but not the islands newspapers. I think this is going to Ben-air

Eastern Airways

Does anyone know why does Easternairways have such a light weekend schedule? Like virtually no flights on Saturdays, and 1 or two on Sundays?

Eastern's scheduled flights cater very much to business people, very few of whom travel domestically on Saturdays. Eastern's aircraft do fly at weekends, but mostly on sports charters and the like.

Eastern is predominantly aimed at the business market commuting for days 1-5. High prices for thin routes/small aircraft.

Given the routes flown and aircraft type they probably feel it is not worth the extra crew needed to operate much on the weekend for limited leisure market.

Any more news on the EMB135's, are they still coming?

Are they just for charter work or for a certain contract, also are Eastern going to crew these internally. I cannot imagine there are many emb pilots around who are not currently working.
