Southampton has finally been removed from sale for next week... restart date moved back to 31 August as it stands.
London City reduced to 4 flights next week though seems to return to normal summer 8x week from 13th.
Balkan Holidays summer program now completely cancelled as the rest of the UK airports, while the Jersey short season will now start on 1 August.

So the first flight to London City has left this morning with 14 onboard (though apparently 19 booked on). Next up is the Newquay which also starts today.

Was going to question the use of an all white Saab 2000 but on investigation they only have one Saab 2000 at the moment.

Arguably CDKA is still part of the fleet but due to go off lease on Thursday (according to Jethros). That too is all white, though.

Apologies missed the small print, only Saab 2000 by Thursday. Which other aircraft in the fleet could operate to London City.

The J41 can too. Eastern operated it on a short lived Newcastle-LCY route in the past.

Yes, but none of the crews are trained.

Apparently quite a few MPs on the flight today, sounded like a prearranged PR exercise on launch day. Be interesting to see the numbers in a couple of weeks time. I suspect there will be a lot of money being pumped into this route to keep it flying for the foreseeable.

MME to LCY had about 8 people in casual clothing and about 6 suits. I thought the 6 might have been people working for private sector companies and travelling for work - ie target group for an early morning flight to London City - but seems not
It looked like there was some kind of photo-op on arrival at London City for the suits (people in casual clothing weren't in the photo ceremony)

Five local MP's - Peter Gibson, Paul Howell, Jacob Young, Matt Vickers and Dehenna Davison (at least one not in a suit!)

Save Teesside Airport gave me a laugh this morning, made it seem like their campaigning had led to this moment, how arrogant!

15 flew on the first Newquay flight.
if they were all fare-paying, >50% load in these times is not at all bad.
