Only fair to point out that KLM have also had some multi-hour delays on the route in recent days.

circa 5 hours delay on Birmingham Belfast the other night. Looks like it was cancelled in the end but not sure. lots of other delays too.

Not great reviews on trustpilot. Still (but carried over from V.1) a 81% poor rating.

I really do hope they make a success of it as they do have great crews working for them.

The main problem is late delivery of G-ECOR from Ext. From an insider elsewhere

BHX-BHD went eventually. I was on it at the time. G-JECY had gone tech on arrival from BHD earlier that day.

I think itís far too early to judge Flybe version 1.5 (to split the difference between those who insist itís a new airline and those who insist it isnít). Letís see how things are in a few months.

Looks like this landed at BHX from Exeter earlier today

First revenue service should be to BHD at 1810. The other 3 airframes are running near to schedule today, which is better than yesterday when JECX didn't move from BHD all day.

The spare aircraft should help with punctuality and reliability. With 20/20 hindsight perhaps not starting some routes until 'OR was delivered or chartering in an extra airframe might have been sensible, though of course adding cost.

Best to learn to walk before you can run. Especially as a brand new airline!

I heard they were out a couple of weeks ago trying to charter additional aircraft for the whole summer, looking for E190/ATR72. May be wrong, but I'd guess there probably wasn't anything out there - business has come booming back for most ACMI providers.

Looks like this didn't happen today. The current schedule needs 2 a/c at this time at BHX (one arrives from AMS at the same time - 1810 - as another is needed for scheduled departure to BHD), so the departure to BHD was operated by ECOE with approx 40min delay after it arrived from AMS. The schedule needed 4 a/c from the day these services started (28th Apr) really.

Actually the BHX based aircraft is planned to do BHX-BHD-BHX 07:00-09:50, then BHX-AMS-EMA-AMS-BHX 10:25-18:10, then BHX-BHD-BHX 18:10-21:00, only issue is they have messed up the flight timings on the final BHD flight, and expect the plane to come in from AMS & turn around to BHD in 0 minutes!! Realistically the BHD flight should be 18:40-21:30, i'm sure they will eventually reschedule it!!!

Why would it take a dash 8 400 1hr 50mins block BHXBHD?

Timetable padding?

I don't see that in the above, 2hrs50min was quoted for a BHX-BHD-BHX roundtrip. Scheduled timings are 1hr15min (out) and 1hr5min (return), with 30min turnround

Perhaps it was following an ATR?

Looks like ops have settled down a bit over the last few days now that 4 a/c are in service. Most flights on or near to schedule.

Some high fares on BHX-BHD and a few flights showing sold out on this route over the next week or so, so (just based on publicly available info) that route looks to be doing ok. Others less so, particularly LBA-LHR. Codeshares are apparently "work in progress".

Inaugural flight Leeds to Heathrow where the security queue at Leeds was longer than the flight.

I fear that goody bag will become a collector's item in the not too distant future.
