Fear for Eastern in the weeks and months ahead. To me they donít seem to have a brand or fleet mix that is sustainable and Loganair probably sense this with the duplication of routes announced recently out of MME. With BE mk2 muted to be reborn, this could also have a significant impact on their future viability

It was always quicksand and I fear...it won’t be the end as the mayor is throwing good money after bad?

Most sensible and unbiased folks on here..we’re always sceptical.

However..housing estate,government offices and other genuine revenue incomes,Can and will save the area.

All pointing to my earlier thoughts here that something is going on. I think Loganair are here to replace Eastern.

I wish I had a pound for every time the demise of Eastern had been predicted...

Do LM have any interline agreements at Heathrow?

What I am unsure of is:

Whether LM are smelling blood and the mayor just wants as many airlines and routes as possible...

Or....

The airport are worried or unhappy with Eastern and are actively getting an alternative in place to keep the plans on track.

Really? I was under the impression they had little involvement?

According to their Wikipedia page, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logana...are_agreements :

Loganair have:Codeshare Agreements with :
British Airways
Blue Island
KLM

and Interline Agreements with:
Emirates
Qatar
Turkish
United
Air France
Wilderoe

Not sure if these would be valid on Teesside to Heathrow for onward connections/ticketing etc...but may be an advantage for increaed loads and connectivity.
Twice daily depending on times may also attract business travel.

Would certainly give them a big advantage over Eastern.

LM IOM-LHR is bootable via BA so I suggest other routes may be too.

I thought they were no longer involved at MME?

Never been officially quoted anywhere, just backroom talk.

My understanding (which may be wrong) is that codeshare agreements are specific to certain routes, and are not between the entire networks of two carriers.

Jersey

Looks like the Premier Holiday packages to Jersey are using the Loganair scheduled flights on a Saturday, with Airways Holidays still using the Eastern charter flight.

Teesside to Heathrow record flight time

I have just noticed the Eastern ERJ 145 clocked up a time on flightradar 24 of 37 minutes on LHR to MME, is that anywhere near the old Viscount record.

Nah!! ISTR the record stands at 27 mins in a Viscount on Boxing Day. BMA330 will be able to tell you the exact time and date.
