Air southwestís comment is just mad. For all I know, they could be Christine Ourneres and for all they know, I could be Willie Walsh. In that example, I am sure neither is the case but beyond that, on here - you just donít know. To criticise armchair experts is to assume you know who anyone is here and that is a presumption too far.

50 passengers at £70 is better than 1 passenger at £200, therefore yield definitely not everything.

Deary me.

This was the day that the EMA and BHX from AMS were merged (as the schedule was about 2.5hrs down) - see earlier post above

And with the baggage charges at the gate for the valet service on trolley bags, they are probably lifting sizable revenues

So either by great fortune exactly the right number were booked or some people were left behind

Total lack of capacity at the moment, EIR only operating 1x daily and U2 have some seats sitting at £441 one way back BHX-BFS so great time to have seats available for sale! It's possible to pay almost £800 return next week.

I may be wrong but fairly certain U2 have cut capacity from what I remember they had on sale.

Messing about on google flights and Flybe come out as an option on most of their routes aside from Leeds - Heathrow. When I put that option in it only shows BA from Manchester?

I'm not sure if google flights is a big driver of bookings but it can't be a bad thing if they fix that to get themselves showing on there. Flybe are about £80-£90 cheaper than the train next week on that city pairing.

If new FlyBe are able to take advantage of reduced capacity from competitors, and cancellations from/to AMS, it's good fortune to them. Let's hope it helps them get (re-)established sooner!

Yet to see BE1026 from AMS to BHX take off on time since it started. Nearly 3 hours late this evening.

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.

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!
