This. So much about the operation remains rinky-dink that customers who value their time still avoid Flybe where there's a choice. Fix that, and the money will come in. Couldn't care less if the fleet was in lessor all-white.

You say that but passenger numbers were up last year by 3.7% and revenue per seat was up by 9% so not an airline that people are avoiding.

What's the monthly analysis of load factors out of SEN. They have aircraft at SEN which putting it frankly are constantly experiencing technical faults. At this stage, it's beyond a joke. I've heard through grapevine those E195s are sparsely seated over recent months. There is a major issue on those three E195s and their maintenance overheads. Safe in the air, who knows?

That was a question, not a statement or claim. Just to be legally clear on that.

I think you'll find it was a rhetorical question and an insinuation with no basis in fact. Perhaps you would rather the airline operated in an unsafe manner with the faults not rectified?

Quite pathetic.

I'm afraid your grapevine needs renewing. As the latest monthly analysis of load factors on E195 routes is not in the public domain I can't be specific but recently they seem to have been averaging over 80%. That excludes GLA as that continues to perform rather poorly. If you consider that as being "sparsely seated" I wouldn't agree with you but it's all a matter of opinion of course. I must say that your last sentence is disappointing and hardly does you credit I feel. There have been no significant delays on the E195 routes for the past 4 or 5 days, which is as it should be but it does represent an improvement over recent weeks.

Are you suggesting gagging anybody asking on an open forum. If it's doing your head in, them go elsewhere buddy. It's really that simple. So I'm afraid put up with it

I think it's when you start questioning the safety of the operation that people feel a line is crossed.

I don't know the LF's but it is a Stobart Air operation not Flybe.

All three E195s have been operating for nearly a week without problems. Hopefully they have fixed the jinxes on EF. It's you who are crossing the line Chum. Be careful what you write when it concerns air safety.

Flybe Reliability

I have flown many many times on Flybe over the years and have never had a seriously delay or cancellation. Have I now jinxed that?

Correct me if I am wrong, less paint means better fuel consumption, unless of course the repaint is taken back to the undercoat. Just a thought.

Any News on Stobart franchise? AGM to come.

Flybe timetable is still no longer available on their website. All Stobart operated routes from SEN are currently only bookable until the end of March 19, although their timetable previously contained several destinations after March. This could point to that soon we will see an announcement on a significant change in the relationship between the Stobart and Flybe?

Flybe's AGM will be this week. UBS has just topped up their holding by 1.5p.p. and is now almost 10%.

Any views?

Received a response yesterday regarding the timetable being unavailable online since late August. Just technical - or so they say.

Dear David

Thank you for your email in regard to our timetable. I am sorry to hear you have been having difficulties with accessing this online.

I can advise that we are aware of the situation, and our IT Department is working on resolving it as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can use the 'Find flights' option to view our available flight times for a particular route and date.


We appreciate your patience and understanding in this matter. For future correspondence regarding this case, please quote the reference number and we will be glad to assist you.

Kind regards

Milena
