Flybe managing to raise substantial cash sums on their own, it looks like they are hunkering down for the lean winter period and hopefully tweaking a few loss making routes. Good luck, they are a very much needed and I look forward to seeing their share price rising.

Yes once a bit of positive news filters through and people realise there going nowhere the share price will surely be back up again , They may ditch a few routes but canít see anything worse than that happening , To much doom and gloom on these pages

I think people need to be far more positive , All this doom- mongering can only make things worse, flybe are going through a sticky patch this happens to many airlines from time to time wonít be long before this all history and everyone will be wondering what all the fuss was about

1. Yes 2. may be by being combined with an existing route, more suitable a/c type, less competition?

The problem with that strategy is you can only do it once. From a corporate finance standpoint, Flybe are now very much on the back of the drag curve.

Confirmed in local press here that the flybe NQY-LGW service will move to LHR from what I think is the start of the summer 2019 schedules.

Interesring development to put it mildly

Iím guessing BE have cashed in their LGW slot? Operating a route with no competition would seem to be a far better use of those LHR slots. The eventual start of Crossrail will also make a vast swathe of London and the east plus Reading and others to the west far more accessible than at LGW.

Iím guessing the chap that said the remedy slots were reserved for domestics is correct rather than the one that specified ABZ/EDI.

Regarding your comment about ''I'm guessing that Flybe have cashed in their LGW slot''

I don't no why your guessing as it's already been mentioned to you that Flybe sold their slots to EasyJet four years ago.

The only remaining slots that Flybe hold at LGW are the slots for the three daily PSO route from Newquay.

The remedy slots that Flybe use at LHR are only for ABZ and EDI and are not theirs to sell until the airline has used them for three consecutive seasons.

Just do a search online for information regarding those LHR remedy slots because it's well documented and I don't know why you think that they could be used to alternative destinations with no competition because they can't do so.

For someone who uses the username of Airportplanner you should actually know this information without it having to be explained to you again and again after all these remedy slots have been mentioned many times and were previously used unsuccessfully by Virgin.

How is Flybe funding the NQY-LHR service? Are they giving up an ABZ or EDI slot?

Those remedy slots that Flybe use to ABZ and EDI are only to be used to those two destinations and cannot be changed to alternative destinations I think we're all aware of that, if they are not used as per the agreement they are eventually returned to British Airways.

If the according to other posters that the government has got involved in this I'm sure that BA would have something to say about it and why should the government be involved in this isn't it down to the CAA!
