The Q good as it is cannot go on much longer a modern replacement is vital and the A220 is ideal for the routes we have planned it will also fit well into the virgin brand


A apology from the doommongers when what i’ve stated proves to be factual over the next few days would be appreciated .....Ok it might not be 500 million it might only be 400 million but none the less....

Perhaps not an embarrassment, but a "baggage technician". Is that someone who maintains baggage, or handles it? Either way, corporate finance is probably a bit above their pay grade, as incidentally, it is above mine!

Im not purporting to be a financial wizard but i do have contacts in the know and i can assure you the loan is in the bag and will be announced very shortly and it is a sizeable investment that is a fact.....

You may use the term hyperbole , The fact a Tory government is prepared to invest hugely in a airline such as fly be proves this is actually a hugely important issue for UK PLC and why flybe wonít be allowed to be forced out of business

Absolutely right, I know this is a rumour network, but this thread is now a laughing stock. We all know there is huge uncertainty at the moment, for the sake of the Flybe employees and their sanity please sober up and shut up.

Itís all about timing. In my very humble opinion Flybe/Connect are lucky to find themselves able to approach the Government after a general election when so much was made of regional connectivity by the politicians. Also, how would it look if the airline collapsed at the very moment we exited the EU.

Add to this the Transport Secretary being an aviation enthusiast whoís forays to research aviation in foreign parts have been part funded by Stobart - amongst others - during his time as chairman of the all-party committee on aviation (this information is publicly available), then it is not that surprising that the case for supporting Flybe is at least being heard.

Perhaps more crucially Dom the prince of the political black arts is a champion of flybe , One of the reasons the cash is as good as in bank account .....

Brigantee, honestly are you ever going to give up?

You realise all of this will be thrashed out between the owners in faceless high rise offices. The hedge fund, Stobart PLC, and Virgin Atlantic. None of this will be happening in Exeter (and certainly not BHX). You can claim to be as well connected as you like, but only the very impressionable are buying it.


UPDATE

I stand corrected. I've just seen Dominic Cummings, Boris Johnson, Andrea Leadsom, Grant Shapps, and Sir Richard Branson come out of the Birmingham Ramp Office. They said they've had a productive morning and they can't wait to meet Brigantee this afternoon to get his seal of approval before they announce a £5bn takeover of Flybe tomorrow.
