Noted from within statement concerning flybmi:

"monitoring developments elsewhere in the UK regional airline sector which could present opportunities for Loganair.”
...or in other words, waiting to see what can be sensibly picked-up when the inevitable rationalisation of Flybe's route network takes effect (using some ERJ's that may now have become available)

That's assuming there is still a Flybe, and I guess if not their statement still applies.

There are reports saying DAT will start a Aberdeen-Esbjerg route shortly. I doubt there is room for 2 competing airlines on this route

Certainly looks like it almost fits together as one aircraft, albeit with an odd nightstop in Bristol on a Sunday night. Potential swap of aircraft from other routes (Airbus contract?) I wonder

Will be good to see an enhanced presence from LOG at ABZ. Always the same - the demise of one always leads to potential opportunities for another. Quite surprised they are going up against SAS on OSL though - they must think demand is there, or they are confident the likes of Statoil (or whatever they are called now I think their name has changed!), will be taking seats.

Or when Bristow gets fed up of loosing roughly £50k A DAY on Eastern (according to their latest Quarterly earnings)

E145 SAJC positioned into Chester to operate Airbus flights from tomorrow presumably. ATR42 leased from DOT to cover at Glasgow

I think it’s time Loganair dropped the “Scotland’s airline” tagline. It’s parochial, and they’re now serving a wider customer base. Good to see them growing, though!

They did have it all the way through the 80s and 90s as the largest airline operator at Manchester flying to Southampton, Belfast City, Knock and the Channel Islands and the likes of Southampton to Brussels.

Is it not part of the brand and identity? I donít recall anyone suggesting Aer Lingus drop the shamrock when they were flying Gatwick to Bucharest or that LOT should drop its suffix given its expansion at Budapest. Donít see the issue myself.

I don’t have any issue with their new tartan branding, certainly. It looks good. “Scotland’s airline” as a tagline, though, seems to underplay their position, and to a degree Scotland’s too.

This argument is a non-starter. 'British' (London) Airways?!

Better not. Any time in their almost 60 years history when they had spells of grandeur and wanted to play with the big boys they got a bloodied nose and were on the brink of collapse. Think of Loganair 146s etc.

Most airlines that are or were created as flag carriers carry the name of their country in their own name. That’s fine. Having Scotland referenced in their name would be fine. If a tagline is needed, which I’d argue it’s not, referencing Scotland there isn’t necessarily a problem. I’m arguing against the specific tagline, “Scotland’s airline”, which I feel is parochial. I’d say the same of ScotRail’s “Scotland’s Railway”. Clearly I’m not going to convince anyone, though! That’s also fine

Seems Loganair won't have everything their way at Aberdeen - DAT are to launch Aberdeen-Esbjerg on 25 February (a week before Loganair) at slightly different flight times

Just what the world needs - two services from ABZ - Esbjerg - this is ridiculous

Can't help but think Loganair & DAT should get together & work something out on ABZ-EBJ. I agree unless timings are totally different that there isn't the numbers to justify competing services, otherwise we would have had it by now.
