A sad reflection on what used to be a great Airline where greed and lack of investment are prevalent.

surely that is based on previous owners? Need to give current team a chance to sort? See Leeds Southampton going back to 3 times a day Mon-Thurs

Yes, RL is back in charge now. My comment above was directed at his previous tenure and also Bristow.

No News

Currently the airline is full of rumours, but no solid plans.

Talks of MME-BHD
​​​​​​More ATR 72s
More 145s

But its anybody guess as to what will happen.

T3 today combined there late afternoon ABZ-HUY-ABZ and ABZ-NCL-ABZ with a ABZ-NCL-HUY-ABZ flight operated by a ER4. I am guessing this is due to a lack of serviceable J41 aircraft. I am sure passengers the NCL-ABZ passengers will be less than happy with the stop over in HUY especially as it will add nearly 90 mins to there flights time.

I saw the early J41 from ABZ-NCL had a technical issue in ABZ and departed an hour late, which allowed the Loganair jet to get the jump. Iím guessing the plane in question (MAJZ) limped back to NCL and was grounded, thus causing the fiasco. A bit of a difficult day for Eastern where ABZ and NCL are concerned.

Today

Just want to add there is 3 Saab 2000s, G-CDKA also in the fleet this ac was IOM based for BA cityflyer.

When combining flights the aircraft flies into first affected airport so would route ABZ-NCL-HUY. The exception to this would be when the aircraft needs to end in a specific airport.

Previously operated combined flights were ABZ-MME-NCL to ensure the aircraft was at NCL for the early morning rotation.

Eastern service between ABZ - NWI ends next week on the 25th October, as per flybe website and when I contacted Eastern today to ask about the service. Loganair shall be the Sole operator on the route from now on.
