The E170 that Eastern / Flybe flew ABZ LSI ABZ LSI EDI LSI GLA SYY GLA LSI ABZ LSI ABZ was mostly carrying very low numbers. It also could not land in LSI in adverse weather. This had all been forecast on this thread, or maybe the Eastern thread, before it started.
There is a limited amount of passengers available at LSI and SYY, like elsewhere people prefer to travel in their cars, or even by bus or train, even when it means a ferry journey. At one time it was common for people to fly from GLA to ABZ and INV. I remember flying in a Loganair Trislander from INV to EDI around 1974. Improvements in roads, vehicles and trains has wiped these routes out.
I flew in and out of LSI for 25 years as an oil industry passenger and I can't remember ever using a scheduled airline, it was always charters. That's what worked as the companies needed to avoid overloading Shetland with people that they could not accommodate if delays occurred. The aircraft needed to carry two chopper loads and a few seats for admin folk, chopper crews, etc.

Does that just leave one last 135 to be transferred for their Norwich operation?

I think you meant to say that only one runway has sea at both ends! The other full length runway is at right angles to the prevailing gales, and anyway has a big hill rising steeply from one end.

Post #347 shows three 135's that have not been transferred, one at Norwich and two at Bristol. I have seen nothing about any change in that status.

Ex BM ER3, G-RJXP, was transferred and registered to Loganair as G-SAJR yesterday. This aircraft had been stored at NWI since 16th Feb.

Will they now need a third ER3 considering they were already taking two?

So far Loganair have added 2 ER3’s and 10 ER4’s to there fleet transferred from BM.

6 of the 12 aircraft transferred have been transferred under the registrations G-SAJB, G-SAJC, G-SAGG, G-SAGH, G-SAGI and S-SAJR and the remaining 6 under there BM registration

Does anyone know if there is a reason why the registrations G-SAJD/E/F/J/K/L/M/N/O or P have not been used so far?.

Could it be that LM are planning to use G-SAJD/E/F/J/K and L for the 6 aircraft still flying under there BM reg?. That would leave G-SAJM/N/O and P to be used for 4 of the 5 remaining ex BM aircraft yet to be transferred.

G-SAJM is currently a DA42.

Away from the ERJ stuff, G-BVVK is now fully ADS-B compliant with G-SGTS getting the retrofit now it would seem. G-LGNA might also be getting it too.

G-RJXC did some flights tonight, ABZ-SYY-BEB-INV-ABZ. I wonder if they are looking at adding routes for the summer.

Flight was a training flight. ABZ, INV and SYY are all already airports that LM operate there ER4ís from. BEB will be served from GLA using a ER4 on a Saturday and Sunday from later this month.

Any indication on success or otherwise of bookings on the new BOH-JER and GCI services?

Yes I remember the BEB flights planned along with SYY and LDY from GLA.
My mind had gone back to the BEA Viscounts when planes from Glasgow and Heathrow met at Dalcross. One plane would then fly on to SYY, BEB, GLA, and the other would go to Wick, Orkney and Shetland. Reverse flights would take place later in the day, again meeting at Dalcross. Everyone would mingle in the one lounge while the luggage and fuel was sorted, including the joining passengers and it was quite a sociable event with MP's, Landowners, Ministers of State and of Religion, rubbing shoulders with crofters, tinkers, tailors, soldiers and sailors.
That could never happen today with all the security

I would also be interested to know what loads look like on the "new" (ex flybmi) routes.

AFAIK Flybmi G-RJXB still sitting at LDY in Flybmi colours since 16th Feb when Flybmi went bust. Flew as scheduled from STN to LDY on Saturday 16th Feb but has not moved since. I leave near LDY and could see that it was still sitting today.

I imagine it is owned now by the Administrators/Bankers.

G-CKAF/G & G-RJXA/B/G/K/L are currently registered to BM’s administrators BDO.

According to G-INFO. A application for a change of ownership and registration marks has been made for G-RJXB. application is due to be reviewed on the 18th March. No further info is available, however wouldn’t surprise me if it ends up registered to Loganair as G-SAJS

A change of ownership application (possibly to LM) has been lodged and are due for review for G-RJXA, G-RJXG, G-RJXK and G-RJXL any time now.

No applications have been made for the last 2 ER4’s G-CKAF and G-CKAG. These aircraft were I believe leased from HOP. I am guessing these aircraft will return to Hop in due course.
