Not sure about Duxford, but BH might like one parked outside his Florida "pied terre".... but then again...

I am pretty sure most people want RL, BH and numerous to board Thunderbird 2 and be launched into deep space. One small step from the potacabin, one giant leap for aviation moral.

I noticed that yesterdays flight from Aberdeen to Leeds skipped Leeds and 'diverted' direct to Southampton. Seemed somewhat harsh on Leeds passengers.

I did see a later flight that diverted to Humberside, so maybe they all went to that. Even that diversion seems odd given that Doncaster is closer.

Surely it makes sense for Eastern Airways to divert into HUY were they have based operations and HQ.

The ABZ pax heading to LBA were kept on-board the aircraft at SOU and then dropped off at HUY along with the SOU-LBA pax. Meanwhile the pax travelling from LBA to ABZ were given transport over to HUY to pick up the said northbound service.

It all seems very negative for EA, are they about to throw the towel in, or is there hope for RL and his merry men.....?

By that logic KLM would have diverted to Amsterdam!

NWI-ABZ

If Bristow have released the single EMB145 back to Eastern, so i have seen on line, thought it was Eastern in the first place
Would it not make sense to place this aircraft on the route, maybe Flybe livery or Eastern
As at the moment we have BMI Aircraft, Flybe/Eastern Flight Number , which cant be a good marketing for Eastern also confusing to the customer i would guess
it did confuse the tower on it's first day of service
and drop the price to make it affordable
everyone be happy

The late KLM did actually divert back to AMS last Wednesday due to LBA snow closure. But like Eastern they normally tend to divert into HUY or MME not DSA.

I also remember lovely stories of crew being shouted out the window to 'get of the f&cking grass'. Magical.

Or my favourite was the cabin crew in a training room on a course drinking bottles of water. Interrupted by an angry outburst of 'this ain't a f&cking tuck shop' and took the said unfinished water bottles away. I mean, drinking water!!, what a liberty.

Honestly, with examples like that I have no idea how they have lost half their flight crew and losing millions.

'If you take care of your employees, they'll take care of your business'. A quote by Richard Branson, but what the [email protected] does he know about aviation or business.

Jolly good lunch

I'd just like to say thanks to BH for treating all the staff made redundant over the past 12 months or so to a jolly good lunch, cheers! Oh... dreaming again, oops

Why should BH or RL for that matter, did they not sell their Majority holding to Bristows? Bristows call the shots.

Whilst procrastinating and calling the 2 original owners, they saw an opportunity, gave many people a step on the ladder to go onto better things. If you are all so pragmatic why don't you put your money where your mouth is? You do a disservice to those employees at Eastern ala Bristow by your demoralising rants. Some actually enjoy their jobs, we have a lady ex reservations who loved it. If/when Eastern disappears you'll no doubt be a happy bunch

You obviously havn't had to work with Eastern management Mr Motor, the way they handled the mass redundancies last year was appalling, no thank you, well done etc... just a generic letter blaming Brexit for the state of the airline... an awful company.
