Aer Lingus expand LHR from 21 to 25 weekly (switched from Cork) during June-August.

Brilliant news. Is this a W from ORK?

This is good news in the summer peak. What days are they adding service?

Flybe

Surprised to see no discussion on the BHD thread in light of yesterdays Flybe developments.

​​​​​​Any wholesale changes at Flybe certainly could have huge implications for BHD, and the airline has had a long association with the airport. Surely, it has been fruitful in the past, but it has changed. Their key route to LGW, what was their flagship route and potentially at a time busiest in their network is gone, Ryanair has joined the fray, and along the way Aer Lingus has turned up at BHD. Easyjet and Ryanair have entered some of Flybe's largest markets, namely BHX/MAN...

...all that said, they'd appear to be resilient, opening a frequent service on LCY and maintaining the other routes.

What are your views, what will the future operation at BHD look like?

Maybe wait for the deal to be finalised, and if there are new owners they give some indication of their intentions?

It's not a done deal as the shareholders have to approve it. On LSE, at the minute they are baiting for COW,s blood.

They can bay all they like, but rather like Tory and DUP MPs on another matter, it's either this deal, or no deal, and the latter will likely be disastrous for the employees, and even worse for shareholder's wealth than accepting the deal.

Regional politics have no place on this airline forum. You cannot compare. Andrew Tinkler buying in with 10% of shares in Flybe might be the game changer as he may have the knowledge of a counter bid. Virgin have totAlly undervalued Flybe.

Accordingly, following completion of the Subsidiary Sale, if the Scheme is not approved, the Flybe Directors intend to take steps to wind-up the Company and Shareholders are likely to receive no value for their shares in Flybe. Accordingly, the Flybe Directors believe that the terms of the Acquisition remain in the best interests of Flybe Shareholders as a whole and unanimously recommend that Flybe Shareholders vote in favour of the resolutions to be proposed at the Court Meeting and the General Meeting.

Extract from statement made to London Stock Exchange if the sale does not go through ...vultures overhead

Used Flybe last week through Harbour, crew were pleasant and didn't seem overly concerned about the future when I was chatting to them. I'm sure they have been briefed to say very little to passengers though! There still seems to be money being spent around the actual airport, looks like some form of covered footpath being constructed to the terminal. Security was a quick and painless experience, staff were efficient and friendly. The one thing I did notice though was that the departures lounge was very quiet, not a lot of people about at all. It will be interesting to see how Harbour copes with any future change, the departures board looked about 80% FlyBe.

It is being printed on boarding cards each morning?

I do hate how FR24 conflates flight numbers ( which mean nothing ) with actual flight designators.

If you mean BEE2YL today, standard ILS approach to runway 22 by DH8D G-JEDW from EGPE. The only oddity being that the Belfast Approach controller doesn't have primary-radar altitude readout at the moment.

FR24 had them squawking 7700 and Flybe have released a statement confirming a ‘minor technical fault’ but that it landed safely.

Why would a minor technical fault warrant a cruising speed of 120 mph 50 miles out?

Think you'll find the altitude readout comes from SSR and not Primary. If and it's a big if, with the cheap and nasty radar that City have, as long as their SSR is still working then they will be able to operate more or less as normal.

120kts would almost certainly say to me a configuration issue, probably a flap limiting speed. Or a gear down speed. Hydraulic issue as noted by irish lad would probably indicate a flaps problem, plus brakes may be affected plus maybe steering. I suspect flaps were definitely down as any flap up landing means higher speeds and usually a precautionary divert to Aldergrove for the longer runway.
