Eastern no longer have any E170s, they have been removed from the fleet.
The article by the Aviation Tribune doesn't mention it will operate on the E170s but is misleading as it does have a large picture of an E170 at the top of the article.

The flights will be operated by S2000s which will operate ABZ-NCL-LCY-NCL-ABZ twice a day.

Reliably informed that Eastern have lost the Airbus contract from CEG-BRS-TLS.

What now for the ERJ and crews?

FR24 has been wrong ever since eastern took it on. It’s always been eastern operating the route

Eastern have lost the Airbus shuttle so they may use the opportunity to sell the E145s to flyBMI or at least lease them out.

Could be that Eastern are interested in bmi's Embraers as the Saabs are likely to be gone soon and will need replacing, this will give Eastern the option of more charters. bmi will surely want to replace their 135/145s soon using their tie-up with Lufthansa to gain larger 170/190s.

PDXCWL45 - I think they'd like more Embraers, not less.

I'd imagine so yes. It will be a case of waiting to see how it pans out, what they plan with the operation and what brand they decide to take on. The best take-over deal for all concerned would be one where Flybe continues to operate "separately" as its own airline, just instead with a clearer direction and better financial backing. This would better protect the current Flybe franchising agreements such as Eastern and Blue Islands and make the whole transaction much smoother.

Bristows and Eastern

Just found the Eastern thread. I posted a question on the Rumours and news thread after seeing a comment on Rotorheads about BRS stock crashing and a post about a possible sale of Eastern Airways?

Anyone know if its true?

BRS stock crashing

Don’t think there’s much left in the wreckage of EA for RL to do anything with now unfortunately. The business model is all but a dead animal with the company reported to be making huge losses daily.

'Is there ever any good news to come out of EA, makes me wonder how they've kept going for so long........'

Perhaps people should be careful what they wish for. At least under the previous shareholders, whatever people may think, Eastern where never in the situation they appear to be in today
