When you think about it, having on-book smaller props running right now is actually a stroke of luck and genius versus others carrying ongoing costs with larger aircraft.

I See that the E190 was flown from HUY to MST yesterday Evening.

And the ATR 72- 600 was flown on Wednesday from SOU to MME and is being used on the MME - LHR flights

It looks like one of the Embraer 135s is on the way back to the UK, heading north out of Nigeria via Spain at the moment. Is this for maintenance or has the Bristow thing in Nigeria all come to a dead stop?

Seems a bit strange that the 170 has sat in MME for several days with the ATR drafted in from Southampton to cover the Heathrow flights the 170 would normally be doing. Must be a fairly big issue if it's tech as the DTV Movements site suggests.

We shall also shortly add a number of interline agreements especially aiding our Teesside-London Heathrow service and major hubs such as Manchester Int'l," it said.
While it has been talked people wanting BA Codeshare. This might be a codeshare with VS/DL/AF/KL

Looks to me like musical chairs with the fleet mix. Maybe a reduction in seat capacity, hence removal of E190 in to storage and the ATR72 taking over MME-LHR as SOU don't require x 2 ATR base at present. The ERJ35 coming back to the UK will again aid the reduction across the network (37 seats). I could be wrong of course but see this as a cost cutting exercise with the larger e-jets!

The ATR is on its way back to SOU at the moment under a positioning callsign.

The E190 went to Maastricht for maintenance input at SAMCO

The 170 hasn't flown since 1 October. The S.2000 had been doing the LHR until the Atr-72 was drafted in for the last couple of days.

Looking at what is on sale for April 2021 (not the timetable section), the based aircraft situation appears to be:
CWL - 1x J41
HUY - 1x J41
LBA - 2x J41
MME - 2x J41, 1x E70 (LHR)
SOU - 3x ATR (BHD/DUB/MAN)

The timetable has gaps all over the place and fleet utilisation is very low.
Most days there's an early LBA - SOU, but no return on sale, similarly a SOU-MME-ABZ but no flights starting ABZ the next day. Obviously very much a work in progress and all subject to covid restrictions and demand, but plenty of scope for Eastern to expand if they wanted to be a serious player in the regional game.
