That's far from what they were initially charging. Either they're in need of some extra cash or trying to deter people from booking - most likely so they can axe the route. Blue Islands did the same before they axed their EXT/SOU base routes.

EMA-BHD

If you try and book EMA-BHD out 8th September and back a week later itís all £168.99 one way - in my opinion ridiculously expensive!

Thought I'd have a look to see if anything else has changed however their booking system is unavailable... more changes coming?

Iíve got to ask. Bean, given what was said before your post and what has been said since, do you really believe what you posted ?

There also seems to be a lot of reports of missing luggage for Flybe passengers. Anyone know whatís going on there?

Handling agents or airport are responsible.

Ultimately the airline is responsible. They select their handling agents and it isnít always the case. Some carriers such as BA made active choices to leave bags behind when they had delays. Plus it is the airlineís reputation on the line.

Yes. This thread is degenerating at its usual rapid pace. Pathetic

Something definitely not right - just been checking flights from BHX on random dates in Aug and Sept to EDI, GLA, ABZ and BHD, all fares set at £168 or higher one way.....they're seemingly trying to deter people from booking. I'm guessing a major schedule change / restructuring is on the cards?

Bean, whether you think the thread is pathetic or not, you believe that high fares = high loads and the fares on all of these routes yet to be launched are so high because flights are filling up so fast. Iím not sure what planet youíre on, but I donít think itís the same one as the rest of us. You may see that as a good thing if all of the other posters are pathetic dribblers as you seem to suggest, but Iíll just leave it there !

Thank you for your highly complimentary comments. Of course you are right and i shall treat you in future with the respect you deserve, particularly in regards to your prefaces to your comments begiinnin "m hearing" which never come to fruition. Great get out cause on your part. But, i'll just leave it there

The only post I can see in recent history which started ďIíve heardĒ was about Flybe leasing in an Embraer and an ATR - and thatís exactly what is happening, so I need no ďget-outĒ from what I said, thanks.

This is all deflecting attention from the basic point here. Fares on the new Flybe routes have gone up to very high levels. It looks very much like some major change is afoot. Iíd prefer to get back to that point instead of deliberately being headed off down blind alleys to shut down debate.

Back to topic....
It may be the case that the reason domestic fares are so high is a combination of higher costs and rail disruption driving demand.

It would be strange for large numbers of people to panic buy air tickets for all dates in August on the possibility of rail strikes whose dates have not yet been announced. If this were the case, routes like Leeds-Heathrow would also see high fares (which they are not !)

I agree - from the one's I've looked at, up to the end of July there is the normal variable pattern of fares (e.g. Friday/Sunday high, Tues/Weds low) and then all fares are set at a single high level irrespective of the date

Looks like Heathrow - Leeds is getting some reductions/changes in the summer. Just had some 'itinerary change' emails and only 1 daily showing.

Interesting points. I just had a look at BHX-BHD for Friday at £227. Yes, I know its a prime time. Although it only had 18 seats pre-booked so I thought that price is a bit steep. All a bit back of a fag packet i know. Maybe just trying to bring more revenue in. I can only imagine the operating costs versus maybe low pax figures and then compensatory claims for cx flights etc.

Is that sarcasm? Once daily is no use to anyone, so that's one LHR route about to be binned before the end of one season.
