It's very simple to understand, even my youngest offspring gets it. Flybe did NOT operate the NQY-GLA flight using Loganair's Saab340's. It was a loganair route when it was dropped. Who did it before Loganair is quite irrelevant. I was refuting the veracity of cornishsimon's statement that flybe/loganair dropped the route. Flybe did not drop it, Loganair did. Just because their planes are painted in Flybe's livery under a franchise agreement does not mean Flybe dropped the route. It really is quite simple.

Even my dog ''Harry'' gets this one ... FlyBE operated the route but dropped it, Loganair took the route on and dropped it also.

So Cornish Simon was quite correct that both FlyBE and Loganair dropped the route whilst he made no mention that FlyBE dropped any SF340 operation on the route!

And an easy under hour connection remains available every afternoon over the Manchester domestic mini hub.

After all that's what it was set up for radial feed from all points- You know that US invented Hub and Spoke concept !

Wasn't it the Egyptians in about 2000BC that invented the hub and spoke system

Whatever I reckon the airport has lost about 10k since my last post.

Looks like a small planet 737 in today, also looks like the "work" on the dc10 is progressing as is the work on the apple hangar.

Classic Air Force looks to be doing well also.

Where are these maintenance and hangarage facilities happening, on the airport side or across on the ex RAF side?

RAF side in between the HAS hangars. Think it used to be the Nimrod dispersal.

Ah ... Back in my youth I had an interesting drunken experience with a C130 (or few) on the Nimrod line, I posted about it on PPRuNe previously, I'll try to find it

Certainly will be busy - and an influx of tourists, and locals returning for the bank holiday with a few full Q400's coming in. Loads this weekend are extremely good across the network with inbounds to NQY fairing highly

Why does the security woman pour over passports as a proper ID check at NQY. I got stuck behind a young family as each child's passport was examined in great detail and then the flybe "acceptable size" baggage tags were attached. She looked utterly shocked when mentioned they didn't bother with the bag tags at Gatters. Then the usual passport check was dome at the gate as per flybe's practice. Why was security woman checking passports at all when the whole lounge was a domestic flight? Has Cornwall finally done a Scotland?

she probably found the term "Gatters" annoying.

Unlikely as I used the term "Gatwick", I just use it here to annoy you.

Security regulations require security staff to ensure that only authorised people are allowed airside - this includes passengers in possession of a valid boarding card. The latter can only be valid if the person holding it is the name on the card - hence the check of the photo id. At LGW you scan your boarding card but the security checks will vary depending on how much the staff are prepared to allow errors or not.

Might be worth considering the likely normal daily activities of 2 low ranking police officers, one in a tough / deprived inner city area, and the other in a rural village.
Both have sworn the same oath, but they are likely to have different day-to-day priorities. There are plenty of things that have to be ignored in a sink estate that would be picked up by a village resident.

I'm not saying Gatwick is under attack from rioters, but it likely has rather bigger problems and credible security threats compared to Newquay.

Oh come on, every other airport I have been through in the UK is happy for boarding card to suffice, there's no ID check beyond that required. Are they all just reckless?

The sheer randomness of security theatre is wearing, forensic examination, and this daftty really did go through the pages as if she was UKBorder staff, of a four year old wee girl, on a domestic sector, is *comic*. Passenger safety is not meant to be funny and each step should have a sensible logic and rationale behind it.

To be clear, the security checks at LGW, don't vary, they've always been boarding card to enter the secure area, passport check at gate.
