I spotted an oddity on Flightradar - the afternoon Eastern flight to VLY was in the air both out and back before even check-in was due to close. Both flights arrived just minutes after they were due off stand at origin. Might these flights have both gone with 0 pax? And if they did, did Eastern have to physically fly to get the money from the Government? Youíd assume they were sure they werenít waiting on anyone

If I remember correctly they pulled the time of the afternoon departures forward by 30 minutes. Maybe FR24 hasn't changed the times.

Not sure about that unless itís literally just changed this week, was supposed to be on it last week at times FR24 says but couldnít travel as the new guidance came in and meeting cancelled.

I thinks it was announced last week to start this week.

Q - "What times the flight?"

A - "What time can you get here?"

I was expecting more than just the four aircraft!

Looking at the DOH: I make that an average of 191 pax (on 22 rotations in January) giving it a LF of just over 75%

Yep not too bad since January is usually one of the quietest months! February's stats will be interesting!

It looks like Loganair plan to operate the Saab340 on the Glasgow route from the 1/6 to 14/6.
Obviously this is all contingent on the route being back up and running by then.

The last solid month we have to go on I guess. March and onwards will be quite distorted.

I make it 21 flights or 42 sectors and 176 pax at 69% load factor unless there was a cancellation or diversion.

QR321 in February should have operated on days 1, 3,7, 8, 10, 14. 15, 17, 21, 22, 24, 28, 29 (the 8th is duplicated on FR24)
QR323 in February should have operated on days 4, 6, 11. 13, 18, 20, 25, 27

Business travel may take longer to come back to previous levels - in my opinion. This has got nothing to do with my opinion on SOU. If anything they will extend the runway and have a go at international leisure. In fact they have said this themselves - itís their key to survival.

Maybe you might want to post that in the Southampton thread?

Welsh government calling on the UK government to help regional airports. And its repurposed a loan extension to help the airport keep going and 50% of the staff have been furloughed.

I'm very surprised about this but you can book Cardiff to Glasgow with Easyjet on their website. The flight is operated by Loganair of course. It looks like Easyjet and Loganair are partners through Worldwide by Easyjet. Oddly you can't book flights to Edinburgh though.
