41s are past it and hated by passengers and some crews alike.
Looks like G-MAJA is back in service now

Is that french route the only scheduled flights that they operate outside of the UK, or do they operate other subsidised scheduled routes outside the UK.....

Is the route ending or is it continuing without the subsidy

Its the only one eastern operate outside of the UK.
And the route is going to continue but will be flown by Amelia Aviation and will still be subsidised.

G-MAJZ and G-MAJU have both been at Cranfield since October, however both just sat outside and don't appear to be getting worked on judging from photos. Any idea what they're doing there?

Saab 2000 G-CERY was "cancelled by CAA" this week.

Active fleet down to; 2x ATR 72s, 2x E145s, 3x Saabs and 6x Jetream 41s

By G00gling G-MAJZ Cranfield, a decent photo taken 8 days ago appears. Not so much clarity with JU, but there is a pic at what looks like Cranfield

JT back in the air this week after nearly a month at MME. New engine fitted in December but took them a while to get it airborne after high powered engine runs. Three or four planned air tests which didnít go ahead.

Looks like JY is u/s so down to 5 serviceable 41ís at the moment, which doesnít cover their operations

Any idea what are Eastern's plans for the ERJ 145 once the Paris - Rodez service ends next weekend ?

Eastern

Eastern down to 4 41s. JA/JB/JD/JL.

JY has just been scrapped. No word yet on JU/JZ which are at cranfield.

SK which is in rodez is purportedly going into LBA once the last flights have been flown.

Eastern Airways are set to re-acquire Embraer 170 this month and add a further 3x larger Embraer 190s later this year.

why not? New owner, who when owned before with his partner had a profitable business.

Pure speculation but could it not be to replace Flybe on critical routes? Timing seems a little to much coincidence.

very much coincidence given Eastern wouldn't have know exact BE finances or know outcome of potential rescue plan?
