This thread is for Flybe V2. The information in the link is about the original airline which was, as the information states, based in Exeter and folded in Mar 20. I remember it well.

I cannot believe that COW is employed. I can only think there is some secret CEO club that ignores total failure. But there were others in Flybe that were a universe away from reality. Flybe V2 was never going to work and some of the delusion from posters on this site when it got going was troubling. The saddest thing as is that lack of managerial talent puts good people out of work.

puts good people out of work.
Many former crew “raised a glass” last week to mark 4 years since losing their livelihood. Many have not flown since and are a real loss to the industry…

The administrators did indeed sell the brand, apparently to an "individual," which seems even crazier than taking it on for another business attempt.
