Can I point out that Bangor is in the United States, and the MRO in question has a long standing relationship with Loganair over many years.
Your estimate of $150k for a standard 'C' check is way off he mark given the age of the tails involved, I've had 20 odd years experience with them.
Loganair want a decent product in return, sadly some of the European MRO's quality is falling far short of the mark.

I would expect a European C on these to be circa £0.5m from what I've seen on the E145? $150k certainly way off the mark.

Can you explain? The Scottish Government isn't blamed in the article and indeed many of the routes Loganair offer are funded by the Scottish government as lifeline routes.

And how is this the start? Loganair are just the latest airline to announce job cuts..not sure if you've been paying attention but airlines in every corner of the globe have had to take similar action..are they also the victims of this mysterious "Dr Sturgeon?"

I am due to fly with Loganair Glasgow to Campbeltown next week and I have noticed that since at least Wednesday this week, all flights have so far been cancelled, both morning and evening ?

Anyone have any info or reasons for all the flights to be cancelled ? This must severley impact such a remote community. Glasgow to Campbeltown by air 30 mins by Car or bus 4 hours plus !

WDYK ?

Combinations were regular through lockdown and can happen occasionally, but not planned (to the best of my knowledge).

And the 340A Freighters are still in the fleet - just swapping out for C Checks. G-GNTB went out to Orebro today, G-GNTF is just about to coast in over Peterhead on its way back from Orebro to Inverness now.

I think in the past the Campbeltown service was always an intermediate stop, whether to Tiree or Islay I can't remember.
The main customer of the flights is the NHS.
4 hours is a bit of an exaggeration, unless the A83 is closed at the Rest. More like 3.

Change of plan. Both visited Orebro for mx. G-GNTF returned to INV today, whilst G-GTNB went to Orebro for 4-6 wks

I have flown this route before and It was direct to Campbeltown and back, not to Tiree. But as saabdriver points out this is happening sometimes during the pandemic !

I guess if you want to drive it non stop 3 hours is possible, but I would, for safety, stop and have a rest if I had to drive it. Essential at my age.

It's a bit obvious is it not? Despite the blatant lack of deaths and illness Sturgeon continues to want to maintain restrictions as long as possible which is going to continue to harm just about every sector imaginable, in an effort to let us know just how caring and considerate she is. Except pubs in Glasgow as she knows she cannot risk upsetting her core base of voters.

Anyone know why the two dorniers have been left to rot in Dundee? Surely selling them even for parts would bring some much needed money in.

With the huge demand for 328s I’m surprised they’ve not thought of that too.

Only use for them now would probably be the scrap value of the metal

Far from being left to rot, the 328s are on a care and maintenance programme and hangared around half the time each. Several sales prospects still live, apparently, but a few have fallen through along the way since the aircraft came out of the operational fleet 18 months ago. Part-out remains an option but not preferred.

Loganairs flights from EMA to EDI and GLA have all been removed from sale as no longer available to book.
