If it really is the end,feel so sorry for all the staff .Had many flights with them over the years and the vast majority were on time. All that crap about FlyMaybe not justified IMHO.

Sorry to see it go if that is true. Have flown a number of time from DSA and CWL, did what was needed.

It’s very possible this is all about a admin mix up over fuel payments and people are putting two and two together getting seven .

LHR-ABZ has also departed and in the air, so not apparently canx after all. Of course whether it's got any pax aboard is another matter.

How does this affect Cardiff-Valley flights, the flight numbers are Flybe, the Aircraft is Eastern.

There's a lot happening on social media, naturally and there's some journo's picking up on stuff there but there's a distinct lack of any reporting at any major news outlet really which may indicate that there is something due to be released formally very shortly. But may not. Nothing more than wild speculation.
Well, at this point there are no hard facts a journo could report as all requests for information from the airline and other stakeholders will most likely be met with silence, The only real hard fact that could be reported at this point is that an aircraft has been impunded at GLA and several flights have been cancelled. But this is hardly newsworthy for a news outlet that is not in the rumour mill business.

LHR to ABZ cancelled
On it's way, scheduled on time into ABZ.

Flights to EDI, GLA and MAN all left SOU in the last 30mins.

It does seem beyond doubt though that something is up.

Sad for the front-line staff that do such a professional job, so badly let down by a succession of incapable and deluded senior management.

In fairness to fernlee, when Monarch was in difficulty a few years ago, we landed to be told that the refuellers at BHX had been told not to put fuel in our aircraft without cash in hand. A phone call to ops straightened that out and we were flying again.

Granted we only flew for another 12 hours or so, but still...

Will the franchise carriers have access to passenger reservations to enable them to continue flying their routes I wonder?

From the BBC business editor...

source "the game is up". Won't make announcement till last plane lands tonight - thought to be around 11pm. Flybe do not base any aircraft outside UK overnight therefore limited expected role for CAA.

All of Blue Islands scheduled flights rely on the Flybe website/booking engine, so seems serious for them also.

I know for fact that one particular franchise operator already has their old system back operating in the background ready to flip over within 24hrs with new flight numbers if required.

I live directly under the EXT approach, and Q400s buzzing around the Exeter area have been a feature for all the time I've been here.

I'll miss them.
