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.

Good News

'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

Can anyway please explain why Eastern with its base at HUY , which itself is a good hour from DSA , similar to DSA-EMA, SO it has a reasonable catchment area that slice up the east coast of Yorkshire, but probably overlapping DSA. still all the same, Hull , much of the nirth and northeast lincs , areas either side of the Humber and perhaps down as far as Skegness . So a scattered but still enough potential customers.

Good road links , if not mistaken there is a railway line like at Doncaster close to the runway ( so I'm told) - not seem personally.
But if so , potential airport station.

So why no new Routes and that Terminal has not seen any changes in interior offerings , facilities b, for years .

I understand it's big customer is and are the oil flights (!side question , do they run thevATR direct from Huy to Scatsa? Or Norwich - Scatsa? .

I recall when I first lived in North lincs , they had Ryanair I could swear it was a base if memory serves, I think they served Dublin and Alicante?.

But why no growth to bring in revenue to please the shareholders .
And why no pressure from Northlincs council who I thought did at one point have a stake in HUY.

I ask as Eastern too had their stake innit too so again why no extra services.
Eg Dublin , Brussels , ( unserved all over Yorkshire) Copenhagen, but ideally with better timed flights , more frequently .
And cheaper! . Imho they should be doing something to bring in the cash and stop the Rot. I feel for the staff , the aircrews . Can't be a nice place to work.

Virtually impossible to make sense of any of that EGPO, therefore impossible to give a reply or opinion.

Eastern's Owners, Bristows, if you read financials, are not in a good place, share value down to just over $1.00 the other day
