Looks ok to me. Better than the old one.

I don't like that blue, it reminds me of the first Air UK colour scheme.

It was rapidly changed when they discovered that at night the
aircraft could not be seen on the apron, and ramp equipment
kept driving into them!!

MUCH better, I love it!

The old scheme was old fashioned, the new one is striking!

When I first saw it I was disappointed, but now, I'm beginning to like it

Flybe have started MAN and gone double daily to EDI - Eastern have axed these routes

Flybe also announced ABZ but then cancelled it before starting it and Eastern continue to serve the route alongside bmi regional

Do you know what happened to the crew that operated the MAN & EDI routes?

I wouldn't think the 32's would get it, they'll probably be going soon

There can't be many 32's in the fleet now as as traffic builds up they get replaced by 41's on the thinner routes.

Eastern does a good job and succeeds where a lot of similar carriers have failed. Never hangs around with routes which don't work.

As far as I know there are only 3 x J32s left in the fleet one in service runnning WIC - ABZ and ABZ - SYY the other 2 appear to just sit at ABZ
wonder if the one left is service is going to be changed to a J41 anytime soon

T3 expansion at ABZ

Eastern are to launch 4 new routes out of ABZ. No details of where as yet, they are in different stages of development, a couple are at "advanced" stage.

Also to add a 2nd rotation on ABZ-SYY, so whether this means more work for the JS32s left, or if it will be JS41 operated remains to be seen.

Wonder which new routes? Will CWL finally be one, & will any be international.

Good news for ABZ. (Sorry HUY... )

I would imagine there would be performance issues with the J41 and the 1600m rwy at WIC.

Which should not be much of a problem for the 41. It will be slightly restricted if I can remember but the 41 is useless for short field ops. When I used to fly the J41 I remember doing a Wick - Luton charter and lifted a fullish load so Wick is not that limiting
