This happens to all airlines TB.

I had a similar experience with EZY a while back, as well as BE from LCY-EXT last summer. Guess which one coughed up compensation the quickest?

Cityflyer may be regretting there decision not to operate LCY BHD when they came so close to launching when BE had there last touch of financial embarrassment.

Quite a bit of surveying going on with the old theodolite going on round the cargo area.

Rumour I have heard is that the surveying is to do with the building of a massive new structure.

Stands 5 to 10 will be turned into a trophy cabinet for the awards that the management team keep winning. As flights and passengers continue to decrease under current management, this can be spun as the airport being more environmentally friendly. This will enable further awards to be won and further management bonuses paid, everyone is a winner!

So without Flybe there would be 9 flights from BHD tomorrow. Would leave only
London LHR
Amsterdam
Carlisle

oops, not good. I'm struggling to see what BHD can do in this instance.

Get Loganair in. Wonder if Eastern and Blue Islands would become Loganair franchises?

I recommend you have a close at the ability of Eastern or Loganair to do much here? How many aircraft has Eastern in service? Lot of wishful thinking going on.

Loganair are maxed out dealing with growing pains of digesting bmi regional and re-fleeting with ATRs. I am not sure jumping into too many of these ex flybe markets would be wise, best to cherry pick a few. Of course it was Loganair who opened GLA/EDI-SOU in the first place before the non Scottish routes were given to Manx and it’s successors.

Not wishful thinking in that sense, just a desire that the essential routes are saved and maybe have a new force in domestic travel that will be sustainable. Flybe planes and crew will be available but of course have no idea about leases etc. So that is definitely wishful thinking !
