I see Simon Laffins name has disappeared from the Flymaybe directors page,as discussed on the share price chat forum. Is it a typo or has he gone. Apparently, investors are saying he also, like Hammad fleeced the company.

I flown with Flybe about 50 times a year for last 5 years and I can count the number of delays (in excess of 2 hours) on the fingers of one hand. I've had 2 flights cancelled, 1 due fog and 1 due ATC strike.
I've had a five hour delay down route after the inbound aircraft hit a bird on landing. Flybe dispatched a new aircraft when it would have been easier to cancel.
I've been boarded when Cpt. decided we needed a tyre change. Rather than wait for the change Flybe put us on a new aircraft and got us away 20 mins late (we made that up enroute).

I guess everyone's experience is different but if I had to choose between BA, Ryanair, Easy or Flybe I know who I'd rather fly with.

I've taken 6 flights with BEE in the last year, and all on time or early.
Another 2 last week (on a day when lots at LHR getting cancelled) and again on schedule, or near enough.

They even seem to have got the LGW-NQY 195 running a lot more punctually recently than it was a few months ago :-)

The punctuality issues with the LGW centered around a catering issue on the E95's MAN run... Flybe have since swapped the NQY - MAN for an out of base E75 with catering on the E95 now done at Newquay... seems to have done the trick!

Or has he just gone back to being the Non-Executive Chairman like he said he would?

Simon Timothy Laffin was appointed a director of Flybe Group plc on 05-Nov-2013
As a company listed on the stock exchange, the secretary of the company, Catherine Ledger, has a formal obligation to announce any resignations of directors pronto to all investors. If anything is to be announced it'll likely be available on the London Stock Exchange website around 7 am tomorrow morning. Allowing trading of shares on the exchange while part (unofficial) disclosure has been made constitutes a false market and will get Ms Ledger into trouble

He is still there listed as Non-executive Chairman which is what was announced. Christine is listed as Executive Chairman which seems to be a typo.

Reliability on NQY-LGW has indeed improved. Mainly because the NQY-MAN-NQY is now being operated on an E75 MAN-NQY-MAN rather than on the NQY based E95 between gatters rotations.

The E95 seemed to pick up delays on the MAN which inpacted on the late LGW

What that means for crew rotation I don't know as normally a new E95 crew boarded at MAN

Have just explained in a previous post the issue surrounding reliability of the LGW.

The crew change no longer occurs in MAN... EXT crew are taxied down after the NWI - EXT...

At the risk of being unkind in her first week, does anyone think that the previous experience of the CEO demonstrates an ability to come up with a successful strategy?

Not in the slightest. As a current employee of flybe I am very concerned about the credentials of this lady and how she's going to continue moving this airline forward. I'm yet to read any article that tells me where she's been successful in keeping a company in profit and evolving.

Thanks for that info Jersey32D

How will this all work with the summer schedule where MAN goes twice daily so assuming the E95 operates one of those rotations. ?

The double daily MAN this summer is being operated by an E75, so the current system with crewing on the E95 I expect to remain.

We are currently seeking both Captains and First Officers to operate the EMB190 for Stobart Air. Preferably those whom hold both an EU Passport and EASA with ejet experience. There is basing opportunities in both Dublin and London Southend with a fixed roster pattern.
Just seen the above posted on linkedin with a photo of a Flybe Embraer. Not seen anything on the 195's operating for Stobart.

Stobart supposed to be getting their own EMB-190's to operate under the flyBe franchise from SEN.

First time I've seen a mention of Dublin for Embraers, mind.

This seems to suggest there will be more than 2 Embraers with some flying for Aer Lingus?

All the adverts i've seen have been for SEN & DUB bases for Flybe. Perhaps an E195 to operate DUB-SEN? No mention of EI or EIR anywhere, only BE.
