Business as usual and a New Eastern booking system kicks in on Monday according to Ben Houchen.

So is there really a market for 2 SOU flights so close to each other now that LM will be operating from NCL to SOU and also to EXT?

Well thatís exactly my point, is there enough demand for all these flights to SOU? LBA certainly seems a stable market, and obviously NCL as itís been done for years, but how will MME fair will be the big question.

Jersey

Sadly it looks like Jersey has been dropped for the summer, fairly big loss for passenger numbers.

It would be a sensible option, but we have been removed from the tour operators system. I suppose they could always sell it independently.

With it now being March they must have sold at least a number of seats on the Jersey flight so I presume there must be some info somewhere.

All depends on how severe a penalty comes with the break clause in the contract with MME. I imagine Eastern right now would (if no penalty exists), happily drop MME to pick up the more promising routes that Flybe flew.

I donít think they would... why would you drop stuff you are getting paid (though we donít know how much...) to fly?

Yes - I don't think the MME operation should be looked at as a normal operation where the airline carries the risk

All these routes..just where are the Eastern aircraft going to come from? They are not/were not the happiest airline on these threads..I’m sure the crews will have some input?

Crews might be more than an issue than a/c. There's the new 170, a S.2000 returned recently, and the rest of the fleet wasn't exactly stretched - especially the E.145's. The Atr's should also be less busy when the loss of the IAC contract kicks in.

Also, as pointed out elsewhere, there doesn't seem to be an ALC-MME sized gap in the E.170's SOU-MAN schedule in the summer.

Big day at MME today!

Hope the new schedule goes well!

Can anyone confirm if Southampton is twice a day by the way, per DTV movements?
