Would agree on the approach. However, I would say itís one of the bumpiest when the winds are blowing and youíre banking 90 degrees over the lighthouse!

Can't see anyone else going on to this route now then.
So the airport now has two airlines stealing passengers off each other on SOU at the expense of loosing Brussels... great 🙄

NCL - SOU

[QUOTE=northsands;10704150]
[I'm assuming Flybe then took over this route which prompted T3 to withdraw?/QUOTE]

Actually, for much of T3's previous stint on NCL-SOU, they competed with Flybe, who began their services over the route in autumn 2004 - so the route then sustained two operators for 5+ years.
Actually,

Before Eastern, there was an outfit called European Airways, based in NCL, who operated two J31's. After them came Eastern (although there might have been a bit of an overlap) on the Saab. IIRC it grew to 2 or 3 flights on somedays. Then along came Flybe and trashed the fares, so Eastern pulled off. Flybe then reduced the flights per day for a bit, and have only recently upped the frequency to 3 or 4.

Not surprised about Brussels....the pax figures have never even remotely recovered to the BMI levels since LM took over the route. On the other hand STV has been rising every month since the LM take over of the route.

To add on, The T3 SOU route will be OP by an ERJ145, interesting as their J41's operate the LBA-SOU route, you'd have thought a prop might have been more viable as they've got competition.

just shows that they need bigger planes for the route but Iím sure in a few months time the pax numbers will tell the story

Don't think the J.41 vs LM ERJ145 would be a fair fight.

Iím believe even with T3/LM on the route there is still less daily seats available compared to BE had ?

I canít see Eastern coming off better with this one. Not with their reliability issues, and up against Loganairís much better PR, advertising, booking system, and jets. I think it will be a repeat of the NCL-ABZ again, which didnít turn out well for Eastern.
