I wish I could share your optimism!! I think more realistically, the core routes to business between BHX and UK and Europe are actually some of the more profitable parts of FlyBe, and may escape relatively unscathed. No so sure about how the (very) seasonal French routes might fair in any further cull in the drive for profitability though.

March Route Analysis

Sources: CAA. FR24 and various airline websites and my records. Load factor and average per flight are only estimates.

Pretty much as you were other than the Turkmen and Air India issues, Vienna and Agadir continue to mystify in their lack of their improvement but long-haul s are (or were) getting better load factors with PIA probably close on if not one the best months recorded (Not pax just load factor). These figures are pretty good considering Easter was late this year and you can see by some flights which normally start in the last week of March didn't this year.

Flybe don't seem to have been affected greatly at BHX with all the turmoil if you consider most of those bookings would have been January - March.

April up 4% and million breached

BHX Press Release

Following on from the March stats these are again excellent.

With the loss of Amritsar, Turkmen, several Turkish cancellations, reduced Emirates I could not see it getting to a million and at one point I thought it would only just be up.

Ironically the press release mentions India which of course was savaged by the loss of Amritsar but boosted by good loads on TUI Goa which actually ended yet again and is not coming back next winter.

The TUI long-haul schedule in April was excellent at times and moving on to today and the amount of sub-ins are incredible but they have 17 flights today in an ever expanding network.

Brussels Airlines showing A319's/A320's next winter which will come as a relief but really needed now. March shows Brussels well down but 80% load factor, yesterday cancellations and delays on the Cityjet CRJ and they also manged to be a couple of hours late on their first flight on EI276. What Aer Lingus were thinking adding the RJ85 on the last flight of the day up against a couple of Ryanair services is beyond me.
