Tie-up with Loganair in the offing? That would leave Eastern in the middle of the country feeling the squeeze.
Here you go boss:

Website says new flights on sale but no availability showing. (Blue Island routes, not the new agreement with Loganair)

Flights with Loganair from Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle to Southampton meeting Blue Islands flights to Guernsey and Jersey.

Blue Islands flights from Jersey to Birmingham and Bristol meeting Loganair flights from those airports to Aberdeen.

Looks very much like a Flybe re-tread (at MAN and SOU), on a smaller scale, which is probably right for the current circumstances.

So will this give Blue Island customers access to LM's code share partners?

Uh-oh. If they suggest buying some Embraers, run like hell.

To describe it as "a lot" is an exaggeration of the nature you'd only find on PPRuNe!

Paul Simmonds, the former Flybe CCO who'd been out of Flybe for a few years, was appointed to the Blue Islands board over a year ago!

Looks like BCI have done a paint-swap today with 'LM going to NWI and 'LL returning to the island. The '42 is also returning from Billund.

Nice to see LH returning. I wonder has it been painted in Billund while it was in.

It’s not cheap to paint aircraft - I hope they have deep pockets particularly given their expansion plans and the dire state of the market
