SEN operated for a short period by U2, I would suggest it might reappear under Flybe/STK

lGW carries more ex NQY on 3xE95 weekday and 2xE95 weekend

thanks CS
I had thought LCY was done but thank you for clarification - and yes FR did STN successfully for many years twice a weekday YeoV

Yes FR operates twice daily on STN-NQY


supoose FR STN-NQY is a possibility

I think a seasonal daily LCY-NQY would work with either BA or BE

an outside chance would be BA starting LHR which considering that BE carry more passengers on the LGW route than BA do on the LBA route shouldn’t be too far off BAs radar.

To clarify. BE currently fly nqy-STN but think it’s being dropped next year

FR flew the route probably 10 years ago. I was suggesting it’s a possibility that they could return to it now that they operate three routes at newquay.

Well if the development takes as long and has as many delays as Virgin Galatic has undergone then I foresee the first launch from NQY being in 2053!

LCY has never been tried.
Air Southwest ran a NQY/PLH-LCY route in addition to their LGW operations back in 2009.

Is Flybe's NQY/LGW still being subsidised from my hard earned taxes? Used it a couple of times recently, both full and it wasn't cheap?

BA for NQY/LHR, that I would use.

Noticed that today's BHX has an E175 operating. Loads that good (or filling for a poorly Dash)?

E75 on the BHX isn’t common but it’s not totally unusual, not sure if it’s scheduled that way or a sub

as for LCY yes I had forgotten about that, it ran for one season just prior to SZ closing down ? I know BE applied for LCY slots for NQY but never used them

We flew that route once, it cost £16.04p for 2 return, the flights were 4p, the rest was tax

The 175 was a late upgrade on BHX.

E175 and Dash8 have identical seating capacity (78).

Thanks Simon
Just been seeing this in the local press.

I wonder why the route which as been operating so long at such high load factors and solid prices still needs a subsidy!

I’m with you on that

iv never flown it with poor load factor. I can only assume due to the costs involved operating a relatively small aircraft into LGW ?
