I too on the whole enjoyed my time there. In so much as great crew and some very fun flying.

It does not however take away from the fact that on numerous occasions, crews were treated in an appalling way.

Led by some management who were nothing more than an and ex old boys flying club with little or no management ability.

Maximising poor terms and conditions when there were no jobs out there, citing no money then advertising a full page spread in the paper they have made £49m. That was just before the sale to Bristows. That was particularly insulting behaviour.

There are still some great people there and in HUY letís be honest and say that those two could not give a flying f&ck about the welfare of their staff.

If they did, why are so many leaving. A fact that cannot be argued.

Re your last couple of para's you ask why so many are leaving, well is it not true that 1 of the people you constantly chastise resigned in January 2018? The Majority shareholder is more than likely calling the tune, loading the gun for a.n.other to 'fire'it.

To put the record straight on another comment I have worked for Mr H many times so all those that say i don't know, believe me I do.

get a grip of yourself. JamesT and others are absolutely correct. your post is nonsense implying no one really left pre jan 2018. but if it makes you feel better, BH is a lovely man and everyone always had a warm and fuzzy sense of appreciation working there. your post would be insulting if it wasn't so ridiculous.

G-CFLU Saab 2000 operating MME-ABZ (BE7632) Diverted to NCL, then continued to ABZ as Scheduled Newcastle to Aberdeen service BE7652 - Maybe Crew or Tech issues? - Seems passenger numbers were OK consolidating to one a/c.

No one wants to go to Aberdeen on a Friday morning they just want to come home, simple as that.

Bristow have now taken 100% control of Eastern.

Iíve no idea of the inís and outs and Iíve no axe to grind but the information is reliable.

Iím told they wanted to protect their ATR72 investment.

Which begs the question what happens to the scheduled airline bit? I can't see Bristow in effect wanting to run an airline. They've enough trouble running a helicopter company in the current difficult times in the O&G industry!!

I mentioned several months back that the IAC operation (Scatsta) would be protected at all costs and thatís whatís happening.

I guess it will start unraveling over the next few weeks, only the folks in Houston and perhaps a select few in ABZ will really know whatís going on.

A curiosity. The London City Isle of Man Saab positioned to DTVA on the 20th parked up all night then left on the DTVA Aberdeen service. Anyone know why it did that.

The 1300 IOM>LCY rotation yesterday was cancelled; a substitute Saab positioned Darlington>LCY to operate the 15.00 return and the final rotation of the day. I assume the IOM based aircraft went tech (again) and what you saw was the substitute returning home on the night of the 19th, not the 20th?

I understand that MH from Commercial is on his bike very soon.

Doesnt sound like like thereís going to be much left after Bristow pick through all the rubbish. Shame, a once great company to work for, utterly ruined by incompetent, inept and arrogant management.

If MH goes that will only be a positive step for everyone, with him there any chances of a recovery would be negated.

Atlantic Explorer - If I may dissect your post then we arrive at a rather major contributory factor in Eastern's slide: MH, incompetent, inept and arrogant!

All is well?

I`ve just seen a vacancy for a Tech Records administrator at EA Humberside. Below was this statement...."This is a fantastic opportunity to work for one of the UKís fastest growing, most successful airlines." Sounds like all is good at EA then.....?
