Why should Aurigny want to overstretch themselves by starting a Southampton to Manchester service especially since Eastern Airways have backfilled the former Flybe route by starting a double daily service already. Do they even have any available aircraft to do so.

Eastern Airways have done an excellent job in backfilling some of the former Flybe routes from Southampton. Aurigny are not in the same position to do so and why should they.

There's no room for two operators on Southampton to Manchester.

Blue Islands starting Exeter to Manchester is just replacing Flybe, that's the reason they are doing so.

Why should an airline owned by the Bailiwick of Guernsey operate domestic flights in England, given that the airline is not profitable and needs to be propped up with taxpayer money?

I would also question the logic of EXT-MAN. It worked (did it work???) for Flybe because they offered connections. Majority of those pax were connecting.

Let us not consider new routes... let the existing airlines survive the current crisis without over-stretching themselves needlessly... not all have the comfort of unlimited financial government backing.

For those not from GCI and who have not seen the latest news from the island...

Let's be realistic about the situation at the moment... air travel is being decimated at the moment and things will get worse before getting better.

Now is not the time to dream of new routes !

That is what it is like in Guernsey: yet, in Jersey the Government are insisting that people should continue to go on holiday , & fly. So, who is right? And, is this not the whole tragedy of this farcical situation ? - no one knows what they are doing ! "Fiddling while Rome burns" comes to mind ?

I notice that the Embraer 195 (G-NSEY) is stretching her legs today (24th March 2020).

Over London as AUR222P at FL290, heading northeast 11:50.

...Norwich next?

Yes, some mention of them only carrying about 6 pax per flight at the moment. Or, was it 6 per day ?

It's there for engine change, as the ones on the aircraft at the time were leased.

I see one of the Dorniers has just routed GCI-NWI - presumably with crew to retrieve the Embraer?

Random question: How many sets of crew does Aurigny employ for the Embraer 195?

To answer my own question, the Embraer did route back to GCI yesterday afternoon, and can be seen parked up on the island here Aurigny GCI webcams

Do.228 G-LGIS
Made its final flight today. Pictures can be found on the Aurigny Facebook page. This leaves just two operational Dorniers - both NGs.
