Flightrider

Thank you for the information, glad I never booked Preveza.

I am sort of shocked at the wholesale dumping of the IT's but on the other hand not totally surprised as some schedules have actually increased at the weekend this coming summer (BHX - AMS, ABZ, EDI, GLA and NOC).

I assume the booking engine doesn't lie - just six 195's operating this summer.

Flybe Summer 2014

There seems to be big changes in progress on the Flybe website effecting Summer 2014. Certainly at BHX several routes are showing double daily (HAJ,STR and MXP) and IOM seems to be reduced to daily. Fares not bookable yet but frequencies are loaded into the booking system.

BBC News - Flybe adds Luton to Guernsey route

I do wonder what was the point of applying for a route that Flybe don't intend to operate?

Flybe Summer 2014

Looks like Birmingham Airport will see new routes as well as increased frequencies on key European services.

BE have been v cautious expanding at BHX in the past, if part of their strategic review to concentrate on key bases then perhaps we could see a whole raft of new routes, BHX for sure needs some good route news for Summer '14! However I have a feeling though based on past BE developments this will be one or two new routes: there are some lengthy gaps in the E175 schedules at times but not enough to indicate availability for more than a couple of routes to operate at decent enough frequencies. Better than nothing if that's all that happens!

I'm sure it was noted on here before, that the MUC airport slot requests for S14 included double daily BHX rotations on the E195. Not sure if this would still be offered now the E195s are intending to be phased out

Afterall look at the LTN-GCI!

MKY661 - why the happy faces with that update? I personally feel that the removal of the E195s is a very sad and dissapointing decision on the part of the airlines management. I remember being there when they were brought in to service albeit not too many years ago. Lovely aircraft which will be missed once they are fully phased out.

Sorry I'm just very used to adding Smileys to messages when I type haha. I'm also sad for them to go as well though

With Cornish connections by marriage I'm happy to see Newquay getting business (I assume they'll be charging BE for storing the Embraer), but seems a strange location given the amount of salt that must be in the air round there. Wouldn't have thought it would do the aircraft much good over a prolonged period of time.

Talking of NQY I've just been told Flybe will operate NQY-SEN this summer. Is that right?

Edit: Yes, confirmed by Flybe to be operating at 3 x weekly from May to September. It will be good to see Flybe back at SEN.

NQY isn't such a strange choice to store aircraft, theres plenty of hangar and HAS space available for short and long term, I think Netjets had or still have a decent sized fleet stored @ NQY, certainly when the downturn was at its worst they did.

Also Flybe have previously used NQY to store aircraft, they had DH8 G-JEDN for a while before she went onward to Aerocontractors, displaying JEDN but in Aerocontractors livery.

On the subject of NQY-SEN on BE, its the first iv heard of it but it wouldn't surprise me. However, unless its going to be at stupid o'clock would that not require a 2nd based aircraft or an aircraft doing a W pattern ?

Currently for summer 14 the based aircraft will operate NQY-LGW-NQY-BHX-NQY-MAN-NQY-LGW-NQY so cant see its got scope to go SEN as well.

There has been an E195 parked at the north end of SOU for the last few weeks, I assume this is one of those being removed?
