There is supposed to be another route announcement in a couple of weeks but I cannot for the life of me remember what it was. It was from the same chap who told me about BE - NCL LCY.

Seems a logical addition, and it removes an aircraft from the Aberdeen route, with a J41 staying the night at NCL presumably just an Aberdeen aircraft extending the start/end of its day. They've removed the Cardiff aircraft too, down to just once a day running from Cardiff between flights to Anglesey. All logical and will give them more sustainable operations.

Cardiff goes back to being 2 daily in January so it's only a temporary thing but the shuffling about has also meant Cardiff has lost it's Aberdeen route which accounted for about 600-700 passengers a month and was via NCL without disembarking. Hopefully in the future the CWL-NCL route might get passed over to Flybe.

I hope this doesn't impact negatively on NCL.

How many flights would you loose if they went? Presuming the Eastern flights would survive.

A Gift for Stobart Air?

At that kind of money, if Stobart are considering Expansion, it'd be a Gift.
They tried once but got turned down. Maybe Flybe Directors are now rueing that decision.

We would lose around 5 flights some days are less though. BE142/144/146/148 Southampton. BE708 Exeter. BE713 Newquay.

Then there is the Eastern flights.

Just speculating.......if the worst happened, I could see Eastern taking back the 10,000 + monthly pax...Southampton route (which Flybe forced them out of) Exeter has ever increasing pax numbers....Eastern, BMI/loganair .......Newquay...BMI/Loganair even Jet2.......or, Stobart...all three routes.

Problem is Eastern doesn't have the aircraft or the crew to be able to.

how quickly could they get the crew or aircraft ?

looking at jethos fleet lists they have a lot of aircraft parked without engines at the minute

G-MAJE/H-J are the 4 J41 aircraft shown as engineless. However there are a number of J41 aircraft that have not flown in recent month. They are:

G-MAJC - Hasn’t flown since 01JUN
G-MAJF - Hasn’t flown for over 6 months
G-MAJL - Hasn’t flown since 10AUG
G-MAJW - Hasn’t flown since 16AUG

Would Loganair be interested in buying Eastern?

What would they be gaining ?

a lot of broken aircraft
passengers would just rebook with loganair I wouldn't have thought there would be much goodwill in Eastern ?

Eastern is owned by Bristows who need the ATR's - why should they sell?

TUI
Some of the flights on sale for summer 2019 are classed as TUI flights operated by another carrier. Sunwing perhaps ???
Also some cancellations already, ie TFS on Sundays.

I think the Thursday DLM & Friday CFU is planned to be operated by Sunwing on a W pattern from ABZ. Not sure about anything else.

Currently the Monday PMI, Thursday DLM, Friday CFU, Saturday PMI and Sunday AGP are all served using a ABZ based aircraft operating a W-patterm into NCL. All other flights use the 3x based NCL aircraft.

In comparison to August 2018, 2019 will see the loss of DBV, SKG, 1 of 3x TFS and 1 of 3x DLM.
Additions are 2x extra PMI (making 5x per week), 1x extra NAP (making 3x per week), 1x extra CFU (making 3x per week) and a new route to Enfidha,
