Anyone know why G-CDEB has returned to Humberside from being in storage at Orebro since April 2019. Are they planning on returning it to service

More than likely, with two extra aircraft worth of work coming online in next few weeks at Teesside. First one starts in two weeks and then 27th April the second arrives.

They have been told they must improve their punctuality at Teesside so this might be a back up aircraft for when things go tec.

The 170 has been doing the rounds today Humberside, Teesside to Aberdeen, still all white. Could do with the billboard logo back on again to advertise the airline.

Surprised no-one has commented to Wednesday's Teesside-Alicante announcement, significantly removed from Eastern's usual business model!

I believe it was also implied in the local papers by Eastern that it was possibly a precursor to an expanded network in 2021.

Further to my own post:Roger Hage, Eastern Airways’ General Manager Commercial & Operations, said:

“This is fantastic news that we are in a position to offer an initial summer 2020 program of sun flights to Alicante from Teesside. This is all part of our growing partnership with Teesside with major plans for 2021, aside from the six domestic and Irish new routes we’ve already announced enhancing regional connectivity.”

Certainly a big bet for them and still not massive utilisation of the airframes. Still if they are willing to take the punt then I hope it works out well for them.

Am I making this up but didn't they try something to places like VRN from the MME, HUY and NWI when they got the E70's the first time??

Not that we'll ever find out, but be interesting to know how much of the commercial risk Eastern are carrying on these flights.

Dissapointing on the likes of FB to see £240 return described as "expensive" - no pleasing some people!

It's all relative I guess. Eastern are in an environment where a family of 3 or 4 can fly from Newcastle or Leeds Bradford for roughly the same price. Hopefully there'll be enough people who appreciate the convenience of having an international airport on their doorstep.
I agree, though, that what a lot of folks see these days as their entitlement to virtually free travel isn't really commercially (or environmentally) sustainable. And FB keyboard warriors who can't see a piece of good news without whingeing about it boil my water as well!

If I am correct the seat pitch on the E170 is 32", which I believe is the same for a seat, maybe with TUI, that you have to pay extra for. This brings the flight cost to a more reasonable level and also the seating is two X two, which would suit a family of four better.

The punters also seem to overlook that Eastern will only be operating during high season. Very unlikely that the likes of easyJet and Jet2 give away tickets from LBA or NCL to ALC for a tenner in July or August....

MME-ALC 0800-1050/1150-1440 Monday and Friday BE7780/1 17/7/20 through to 11/9/20 according to Amadeus.
However - suspect timings incorrect as it shows 1h50 out and 3h50 home!

Might be worth checking again. I read that as 2h50 both ways. Don't forget the time difference too.

A flight time of 2h50 from MME sounds about right. Jet2 are showing a flight time from NCL to ALC as 3h5 this coming summer.

Head to head with Loganair on two of the three new routes. Crazy - surely there is enough to go around without going up against each other.

Do Eastern have enough planes to run the new services?
Any idea what planes they will use for them?
