Was today's KL960 to AMS really operated by Stobart Air?

KL are leasing a E195 from Stobart for I believe a 2 year period. The lease began on Monday. The aircraft will initially operate to various destinations on behalf of Cityhopper until the start of S19 schedule when the aircraft will be mostly used to operate flights between DUB and AMS. EI-GGA is the aircraft currently operating the lease.

Thanks.
I can't remember what the only Stobart plane (back from DUB) I've flown in was but you couldn't get a matchbox in the overhead lockers.
I think the E195 is a lot better.

Loganair have announced that they plan to add flights from ABZ, GLA and SYY to SEN in May with flights operating to ABZ and GLA up to 3 x daily. Would there be a market for a similar kind of service from NCL?

I canít see no reason why Loganair would not look at operating to other destination if the flights to BRU and SVG prove to be success over the coming months.. CPH, OSL, ZRH are destination that I think demand would exist for Loganair to operate from NCL.

The only thing Iím worried about with Loganair to BRU the non existent codeshare agreement with SN. Most of the customers on BM (well half) were connecting customers and I have a feeling that the route might not be as popular without that codeshare. I could be wrong just my worry

CPH, OSL, ZRH are destination that I think demand would exist for Loganair to operate from NCL.
On the other hand:
  • Any expansion beyond (the presumably proven) SVG and BRU routes would require the base to be expanded beyond the current one aircraft;
  • SAS couldn't make CPH work when CPH was a major shareholder at NCL, OSL has been tried a number of times by a number of operators, and isn't ZRH slot constrained?
  • SXF, MAD and now WAW have all been tried and dropped recently by EZY and RYR.
Would be a brave move for LOG

Except that LOG do operate with a smaller capacity aircraft which could be more suitable for the said routes.

...loadwise maybe. But that comes with much higher operating costs and given the widespread belief that there is a constitutional right to fly across Europe for not more than 19.99 it is simewhat difficult to imagine how Loganair could make such destinations work.

The Heathrow flights are not a surprise due to,the abysmal schedule that BA have been offering lately.

OK, but to be honest, I don't think that Berlin, Warsaw and Madrid attract a lot of business travel to/from NCL. More leisure and to some extent (Poland) VFR.

Its a such a shame that they Routes can never last the journey. It seems after the buzz of having a new city break destination once the pool of potential visitors have used up the route it gets cancelled. If Ryanair canít make Madrid or Warsaw work x2 weekly then I canít see Iberia Regional or Wizzair biting onto these routes.
