I really hope I am wrong but with increasing likeliness that Flybe will go bust, that leaves EDI with 2million seats gone. Also really sad for the staff and I will miss Flybe should they go.

I was wondering if someone like Loganair, Ryanair and EasyJet may pick up some routes should the worst happen.

Ryanair wont - they dont operate any UK domestic flights. Easyjet will increase capacity on a number of routes, Loganair and Stobart will step in and take on a few new routes no doubt, if they have the spare capacity.

I wonder if the Virgin/Stobart consortium might consider restarting as a new entity and taking on some of the more profitable routes?

Although having said that, with coronavirus impacting demand, now might be a bad time to be expanding. Perhaps the existing carriers will just enjoy the higher loads for the summer, and start thinking about expansion next year.

Incorrect.

Ryanair operate Edinburgh to Derry and Liverpool to Derry.

These routes are entirely within the United Kingdom

flybe

Flybe also had 7 nightspot aircraft.

Perhaps room for other carriers to have a nightstopper as prior there was no room for any other.

I'm surprised that the MAN route has been picked up. 1-3 flights a day v a train every two hours
On the other hand, they have left EZY as the only operator to NI.

Who's going to operate the new Loganair routes? The same Estonian outfit that run their Carlisle operation? Or Eastern airways? 😂

Many of those ex flybe rotation are early morning ones. They'll need to move those 7 dash 8s first, beore someone else can park their planes overnight! Loganair have 1 overnight Saab 340 at the moment. That's it. (IIRC)

3x night stoppers currently I think, although it may vary depending on day of week. (2x ERJ, 1x S340) This will increase to 5 once SOU starts. (additional ERJ and 1x ATR72)

Either a really s*** attempt at a "funny" meme or some scumbag being malicious to cause unease and panic among people.

The quality of it is poor, it looks like a slapdash job on MS Paint.

For your information, it was a genuine post that I saw on LinkedIn and I redacted his name. The gentleman is a chauffeur doing airport runs from Fife and P&K. I was unsure if it could have any modicum of truth but as it is a ‘Rumour Network’, I posted it.

It now appears it might not be completely true (for now) but it certainly isn’t “BS” either.

Lot 737

Currently LOT 737 SP-LWC finals 5o Edinburgh, wonder what that's about.

Given there would have normally have been FR from Warsaw Modlin and Whizz A321 from Warsaw Chopin

I understand that it's a repatriation flight for Polish nationals.

... and an A359 today. I'm not sure whether these are repatriation flights or perhaps they are predominantly carrying cargo given that cargo rates per kg have increased by many orders of magnitude in recent weeks due to COVID-19.

The fish farmers and shellfish producers are desperate for their exports to China and Japan to restart. I understand that the price of crabs and lobster has fallen to uneconomic levels.
