Ive heard that half the fleet is going this year. Has RL had enough after the 3.6m loss. Has bristows had enough.

Any idea what aircraft they are getting rid of? The J41s? The Sabbs and E jets?

They won't bin the J41s until they absolutely have to; they are a reasonably reliable fleet to be honest.

Most aircraft are reliable if the operator has an appropriate spares back-up ... The one exception to that rule being the ATP

Has only a single aircraft, one J41 been painted in flybe colours? Doesn’t the franchise agreement say if we are going to sell all of your flights for you as “flybe” you have to at least embrace our branding?

MAJK is the sole purple Jetstream. I reckon it's at least the fifth paintjob it's worn.

Aren't SAAB stopping support for 2000 in 2020 so wouldn't it have to be phased out by then anyway?

Is this right - I know the airline fleet isn't huge but they've been selling AEW and special mission versions in the last ten years or so

Apparently Eastern will release all of their reservations staff soon as everything will be done through Flybe. Great, so when (not if) Flybe realise that partnering with Eastern was a huge mistake (if they haven't already) and bin the partnership, Eastern have no reservations staff! Doh! RL really does take the p~~s sometimes!
