So that translates into 5 daily flights, I guess. Beyond switching, say, DND, IOM and LDY to LHR not much left then

BA may have something to say though on their essentially high fare LHR connection monopoly.
Good news though. Have they got capacity/aircraft and resilience though? We donít need another Flybe
I imagine BA will codeshare. A win win for them.

From a personal view it would be great to have the ex Flybe (1) LHR-GCI route back ...

I see there’s a Titan A321 that seems to be subbing on Logan flights just now, quite a capacity difference from the regular fleet.

What's happening here? Now being reported that it was at MME for storage and is going to Portugal shortly?

It was there for care and maintenance, but plans to conduct a C Check there didn’t work out which is why it’s now off to Portugal

Thought this was going to be Willis' first C check at MME so curious as to what didn't work out?

Meeting today with Loganair and CAA about how they plan to maintain Scottish connectivity. Surprised its within CAA remit or priority.

Wasn't there a plan that all of the E145s would receive their heavy maintenance at Willis at Teesside? This would mean aircraft wouldn't have to be flown to Portugal or even the USA for C and D checks.

G-SAJD has sat at Teesside since February and work seemingly never started on it. When the aircraft go to OGMA in Portugal, they are often there for six months at a time. An expensive and time consuming business.

Might be overexaggerating about the timescales relating to OGMA checks...
The MRO in Lithuania have encountered delays also, mostly down to lack of spares for a legacy fleet of aircraft.
Bare in mind that both the MRO's are recognised Embraer service center's, not many of them in the good old UK..

I'm pretty certain this is the first LM aircraft into OGMA in quite some time - like three or four years. Others might have had issues with aircraft stuck down there but Vilnius has been the MRO of choice for the 145s for ages now. Only one ever went to the USA.

It's well on its way there so whatever happens, doesn't look like the C Check is being done in Teesside.

Maybe the same reason Willis do not have base maintenance approvals from EASA?

They have CAA base maintenance approvals, so is this a seperate issue? Do Willis do MRO in their own right anywhere else?

Maybe EASA actually did a proper audit? Is this hangar fit to do maintenance in? Is it ready to do maintenace in? I wouldn't tell you if it is or isn't because it isn't any of your business.
