Historically, O'Leary sold chunks of his shares in Ryanair and (present situation notwithstanding) it was seen as perfectly normal and not an indicator of dire profit warnings ... why should it be different with Stobart?

That particular moderator died last year. I believe the replacement one is a bit more relaxed but I can't speak for him of course.

Can’t say, just in case, but the answer lies on the last page.

OK. I think the rumours from this week's goings on at SEN and STOB point towards the advice to prepare yourself for bad news. Given that we post on a Rumour Network that should be OK for the the Mods.

Invesco are selling too. Something is happening at Stobart Group. I guess the full year results contain the answer and we will just have to wait for their publication.

easyJet Summer 2018 Schedule

It might just be my pre-breakfast bleary eyes but at least Thursday and Saturday in August seems to show four aircraft are needed with late night arrivals from FAO, AMS, AGP & MLA on the former and FAO, IBZ, AGP & MJV on the latter. All those seem to be operated by SEN-based aircraft.

Interesting. I did post this last week:

"The only thing that may give faint hope to some is that there are some quite big gaps between flights, e.g. 2h15 on a Thursday and 1h45 on a Saturday."

This suggested to me that a 4th aircraft could still be a possibility, as I found it hard to believe the aircraft would sit there that long. My hunch was that the aircraft would head off somewhere unpublished after 30-40 mins on the ground and another aircraft would operate the flights cited.

They've certainly been shuffling the pack. I'm going to Malaga next May, and was surprised to find the flight has been changed to 1645 from the long established 1025.

I see the additional FAO flights only show as operating from 26/28 July. So maybe more to come, maybe an error. If it was a 4th aircraft only for the summer holidays I'm not sure why only FAO would be showing extra frequency and not the other beach destinations.

So - the evening flight to PMI on the Palma based aircraft has bitten the dust? (1920 arr. SEN 1945dep SEN).

If there is to be a 4th aircraft that may well operate additional PMI flights plus obviously some additional routes.

Good to see JER being increased to 5 x weekly in the peak season.

I see FR have dumped STN-GLA this winter. That's a bonus for Stobart.

Or is the FR dumping of the STN - GLA route an indication that there's not much call for it? Perhaps our smaller aircraft will manage better.

Anyone know why we had a Flybe diversion this morning from Exeter? I would have thought that if it had been weather at LCY we'd have had more than just one.

This would seem to all but confirm a 4th aircraft. In addition to the Thursday and Saturday nights referenced previously, the JER increase means departures on Sunday afternoons at 13:00, 13:30, 14:45 and 15:20. The latter three are short hops to AMS/CDG/JER but only two of them do anything when they get back.

..... and SEN-GLA looks to be selling extremely well today.

I've just come back from one of my wanders round the airport and can report that the extension to long stay 2 car park is now open and it is big! From the very end of it you are very close to the stop bar at Alpha 1 for runway 23. A good spot if runway 23 is in use but not so good when it's 05 as it is today. The easy from Paris didn't do the full length but managed to slow enough to exit via Bravo. Sorry if you find this uninteresting but I'm sure some people want to know.
