How Many 145's are now operation and how many are stored? Is the plan still to be rid of them all by end of 2009, or has it moved forward?

Evileyes - You have literally saved me from going insane....good idea

I think there are 10 E145s but I could be wrong as I cant remember how many have been WFU or sold on since they first joined the fleet. Two are off to bmi regional soon and by March 09 there will be two left in the flybe fleet.

Surviving 145's

According to a quick ACARS search, 11 145's have been active in the last few days - G-EMBI/J/K/L/M/V/W/X/Y, G-ERJA/C.

Jethro reports G-EMBN/O as going to bmi.

Does anyone know any rumours about FlyBe coming to LPA? One of their a/c was spotted here last week! It was probably just on loan to another carrier but who knows?

Hello blueplatinum

No chance of Flybe coming to LPA I am afraid. The aircraft which was spotted was G-FBEN on its delivery flight from Brazil to Exeter, it routes via LPA for a fuel stop

BN is already in BMI colours, and the same reg. It was in MAN the other day.
Oscar will soon follow if it hasn't already.

Apparently a new Greek start up airline called Athens Airways are supposed to be taking 4 145s from FlyBE. Delivery is supposed to be starting in November this year - not sure if this is true or not.

G-EMBN 100% in BMI titles, and operating for BMIr. BN is still in stripped down BA colours, i.e lower fuselage blue, just sports the BMI stickers. At least it was when I saw it on Tuesday, boarding BMI pax!

its definately at Heathrow in BMI colours, i was on a plane parked next to it - BMI passengers got on at Gate 8 and then it flew off to Aberdeen i think its safe to say its been transferred.

On a separate note...it was a day of firsts for me as i flew for the first time on Sunday on one of Flybe's new long shiny Emb 195 back to SOU (and first time as a Flybe pax) and i have to say i was very impressed with the comfort inside and the quietness from outside (as i sat on Row 8 by the engine) - good loads too 110 pax out of 118. A very smooth transit through Soton (also a first for me) so a good experience all around

Yes, a bit of a cigar tube but seems an OK aircraft so far. Good to have just 2 x2 though. Flybe are keeping them spic and span.

Last Friday I travelled on G-EMBU from DUS to MAN. All white with Flybe titles and markings.

Watching a Flybe 190 fly over my head on approach at Aberdeen recently, always amazed at how long it looks! Bit like a cigar tube in fact

Any more clues re what Flybe intend at ABZ, or has the Credit Crunch impacted their expansion plans generally?
