I hope this attempt from lolofligths does actually go ahead. '100 seat E195' is either poor journalism (as per from the echo...) or possibly a suggestion it will be restricted to 100 seats for runway performance reasons?

Skiathos is an interesting destination so it would be great to see it succeed.

How many E195's will Flybe still have once the 3 disappear mid year next to Stobart? and are the 2 that are at Southend now being returned to mainstream Flybe? Lots of chartering going on from SOU for next summer what with Menorca and now Skiathos and makes you wonder where all the frames are coming from

E195s

Flybe currently have 9x E195s, with the 3x going to Stobart Air that leaves the company with 6x next summer. A further 4x will leave the fleet during 2019 according to their annual investors report.

Change in management may change that disposal.

The "sun" routes have been reinstated.

So far as I know, the flights (from BOH to Santorini) were never actually on sale, Mrs FlightFone tried to book on-line and with several travel agents, several times. It was never possible to buy tickets. Fly LoLo did not get the basics right. FF

Seems both MAN and BOH flights were cancelled citing low sales 2 months before they were due to start according to some press articles, few topics on trip advisor about it and people having their flights cancelled and then having to pay a lot more to rebook with others, this seems to be attempt no.2

Fly lolo having another go at MAN, GLA and LGW to TFS and ACE this winter, but on very random dates in December using Air Europa.

Flybe have changed the Palma service operating on a Tuesday afternoon from next July to operate to Skiathos instead , hence the mystery is solved as of where the aircraft is coming from to operate this new route

Flybe will now operate just 3 times a week to Palma from next July and Volotea at the moment will operate 2 times a week on behalf of TUI

Still no confirmation from Volotea of either Palma or Ibiza on their website, is this because they are not flying scheduled services next year and instead only charters via TUI?

It would be a real shame if Volotea are not operating scheduled flights from SOU in 2018 and only flying charter flights on behalf of TUI.

With the huge and quite wealthy catchment area of SOU the airport shouldn't have to be in this position every year regarding flights being continued if anything it should be quite the opposite with the airport announcing new airlines and new routes.

In the long term the only hope for SOU is if EasyJet make any considerations into expanding from the airport as the large catchment would easily welcome any move by the airline with passengers having a committed airline to the routes that they want to fly to.

As I said in post #73 .... Just received this from Volotea ....

Yes, we should fly from Southampton next summer. Generally flights are scheduled approximately 6/7 months in advance. Best regards, Bruno

In all fairness a lot of airlines or companies for that matter make statements like that all the time but none of us will actually know until the schedules are finally released which I would have thought they would have been by now hence my post.

I am a bit cynical and I never believe to much until it's actually official but hopefully Volotea will announce something soon so that your reply from them can be justified.

Southampton could be so much better with investment!, unfortunately this hasn't happened,and not likely to happen in the near future!
Really is the airport going to survive longtime? It's debateble!
One debateable matter why did the Faro flight divert today to Hurn?
The wind was gusting to 40 knots at Both airports and at 230 degrees direction should have been manageable for a 20 landing?
