I managed to book a flight from LHR to GCI in January but I had to follow the steps below.

Select the date 25th October. When it displays the flight press the +7 days tab



Keep pressing the + 7days tab until you get to the date required. It will let you tab through until end of March. Below is a screenshot for January to show the flights are loaded



Then book as normal. The only problem is the booking can only be one way.

Thank you, there's obviously a glitch on their website.

Are those the previously announced base closures, or is this a new round of cuts?

Have heard rumours from crew that more cuts to come but also a strengthening of strategic and high yield routes so really who knows

Currently several IOM based cabin crew. They held a recruitment day for cabin crew the week before.

Isn't that a clever recruitment team, they hold a recruitment day then announce closure of the flybe Base.

Not sure if was in advance however Flybe have dropped a bunch of routes from regional airports.

Leeds Bradford to Dusseldorf
Southampton to Dusseldorf
Manchester to Toulouse and Milan
Doncaster to Amsterdam and Belfast
East Midlands to Jersey, Edinburgh and Glasgow

I know some of these cancellations are due to EJet operations but some of the above are Q400 ops.

I wouldn't be surprised if these were all marginal routes so have got the chop.

MAN-TLS is a bit of a surprise as when I've used it, usually full (and not cheap) lots of Airbus folk use it too. If they can't make that route work then something must be wrong ?

Dusseldorf and Doncaster bases are closing, so that might be part of it. MAN-MXP and TLS was operated by E19/75. Might be a bit too long for the Q400?

Flybe relevant comments from Virgin executive vice-president of operations Philip Meher talking to FlightGlobal earlier this week about their LHR expansion plans:

Regarding Virgin Atlantic's domestic and intra-European ambitions, Meher stays that "Flybe would be a key connector for us into Manchester and Heathrow", adding that the carrier would "use Flybe to expand our regional footprint into Europe and feed that traffic back into the UK".
Meher also says that the carrier is still working on its plan for how Connect Airways – through which Virgin Atlantic is co-owner of Flybe, Stobart Air and lessor Propius – will be marketed to passengers, noting that it is considering "how that brand would work in terms of the customer proposition... whether that's 'Virgin something' or another brand".

That is not true. Isle of Man, Doncaster and Cardiff are closing. Dusseldorf is remaining open, albeit it appears only one plane.

there seems there are lot of changes going on. how did Cardiff survive all the cuts? was a deal done? what happened to Doncaster, it seemed some routes were saved then lost? are there more rumoured changes ie increases anywhere? when do the jets actually go? are all the q400s staying?
