It'll be sad to see them go; I don't think Flybe really understood how loathed the 146s were until people started flying on the 195s. It's often said that people don't really care what type of plane they flew on as long as it got them there ... but the 195 is/has been a very much admired aircraft - by pax and crew alike. Moving from 6 abreast on the 146 to 4 abreast on the 195 was a joy!

Here's 'FBEJ on departure from Jersey:

Thanks for the memories!

E195 "stored" at SOU

Aircraft is used at the weekends, just not during the week... so G-FBED isn't actually wfu yet.

G-FBED

She might be only parked there until she is needed as one of the based aircraft for the summer routes to Spain

NQY SEN

Any offers as to how the Newquay to Southend will be operated as at present it does not fit in the the schedule. Does it mean 3 BHX or MAN flights make way or are operated from the MAN or BHX bases.

Only a temporary requirement for this summer, until the Spanish routes are pulled at the end of the season, presumably due to the demise of the 195s and the inability of their underpowered 175s to take a full load out of SOU?

Is it beyond the realms that a 2nd DH8 could end up NQY based with the current EDI being operated ex NQY ? And some new routes like EMA, LBA, DUB etc being added ?

NQY-MAN

Looking at the online timetable, there seems to be a second daily NQY-MAN-NQY loaded.
BE352/3
BE354/5

Any ideas ?

I currently operate the route and I can only say what I think may happen. This is just my opinion and does not reflect on what the company may have planned in any way, shape or form.

As we all know the current based aircraft operates:

BEE801/2
BEE352/3
BEE803/4
BEE805/6

And will operate:

BEE801/2
BEE1821/2
BEE354/5
BEE805/6

I believe for the summer only there is a second MAN rotation? This will have to emanate from MAN I assume so I am guessing this aircraft will operate MAN-NQY-SEN-NQY-MAN

I maybe wrong, we haven't had anything official released to us as yet.

195s

It surprises me that Flybe will stop the Spanish summer routes out of Southampton. I have flown them for the past 10 years and they have always been busy. In fact this summer Palma is 5 x pw, Alicante and Malaga both daily, and Faro 6 days pw.

I believe the NQY-SEN flights only operate on a Tue/Thu/Sat and will be operated by the based NQY DH8 as follows :-

BE 801/2 NQY-LGW-NQY 07:45-09:00/09:30-10:40 (Mon-Sun)
BE 1826/5 NQY-SEN-NQY 11:05-12:25/12:50-14:10 (Tue/Thu/Sat only)
BE 1823/2 NQY-BHX-NQY 11:20-12:30/12:55-14:05 (not Tue/Thu/Sat)
BE 354/5 NQY-MAN-NQY 14:45-16:00/16:40-17:50 (Mon-Sun)
BE 805/6 NQY-LGW-NQY 18:25-19:40/20:10-21:20 (Mon-Sun)

The BHX flights on Tue/Thu/Sat will be operated by a BHX DH8 as follows :-

BE 1822/3 BHX-NQY-BHX 11:20-12:30/12:55-14:05

not certain about the 2nd MAN flight, maybe a timetable error?

I'm not suggesting this is a good idea just in case any BE commercial team are reading but the Q400 does Spain very easily and has done so from IOM and JER/GCI before. Just because the E195s are off doesn't mean SOU-ALC or AGP couldn't be achieved.

I do however think it unlikely though also because Flybe wish to have an average sector length of 90 minutes.

Alas never say never especially as passengers, as much as many still insist on disagreeing with, will fly on the prop even on longer sectors if they can do so more easily. SOU-SZG, LBA-INN, SOU-NCE have all been on the Q400 at some stage and worked successfully

Not sure if Flybe could make a Q400 work to AGP/ALC/FAO/PMI, the flying time for those destinations means the speed disadvantage will be more significant, and there are plenty of jet alternatives from nearby airports at a lower price (BOH, LGW etc). They work well from the C.I. and IOM because there is no practical direct alternative.

It is a shame to see the E195's go, as they seemed ideal for the SOU/EXT-The Med routes. They were/are usually more expensive than EZY/FR but also more comfortable (and convenient, location dependant of course). It will be interesting to see how the gap will be filled at SOU, as Flybe have proven that there is a strong demand for the routes (This summer ALC, AGP, PMI are daily, FAO is 6 weekly and NCE is 5 weekly in the peak months).

195's

195's

What will they do on nights like this - BHX has one based 195 scheduled but four operated tonight and only one of the three based 175's flying today!

New Routes

two of the rumoured new BHX routes are back on sale via connections at CDG whereas last week the fares were greyed out.

Is there an route announcement due this week other than SEN-NQY?
