I wonder if Airline Investments Ltd might sniff around Stobart Air, could be a good fit with Loganair and BMI Regional.

Anybody know where EI-REI is? It hasn't operated flights in over 2 weeks

Goldeneye,

Good suggestion. Surprised that there hasn't been more interest in this topic. I'd put Flybe and AerLingus top of my list. That said AerLingus is now fairly confined to the island of Ireland for expansion and bringing an Aer Lingus commuter service in-house again could be a good move and potentially at a lower cost to Stobart, given shared services etc. At AerLingus head office? As it stands the Stobart AerLingus contract is good until 2022.

Maybe it's in Monchengladbach on maintenance.

It might be a good move in terms of customer service bringing it in house but it would be an industry first if EI could do it for less than the well known tightly run ship that is Stobart Air (Why oh why did they change the name?)

I wonder if Airline Investments Ltd might sniff around Stobart Air, could be a good fit with Loganair and BMI Regional.
Given the Engineering wheels have well and truly come off at Loganair I wouldn't try this until they can fix the rather pressing concerns in Glasgow.

Seems said wheels have been repaired....
"That package includes: spending 4 million on the purchase of two 50-seater Saab 2000 aircraft, a previously announced 6 million investment in a new spares hub at Glasgow Airport allowing far faster and more efficient servicing and repairs and 3.5 million to begin a three-year programme of major passenger upgrades for the workhorse of its fleet, the Saab 340, significantly improving journey comfort and convenience"

ATRS load factors were healthy but I struggle to see 319 filling on a service to EIDW

First I've heard of it.

May not be announced and just turn up in the search engine one day.

Hi I'm not sure where you got that from. Loads are appalling since inauguration. Company want EIR to takeover, would imagine from W16/17.

Not sure why I'd be declaring that to you, nor why should I be.

Well either way the route grew in Jan by some 15k pax from 24k to 39k, in dark and wintery weather. I doubt if FR saw the vast majority of that.

EI recently increased the service than planned for summer, staying same as winter now.

EIR look very full for summer.
