Would any kind soul out there care to enlighten me on recent rumours of Manchester becomming a 146 base for the new company?

Any more purchases or routes planned for the 146/RJX?

MAN presently has one BRAL 146-100 based there as a standby aircraft. Two additional aircraft on lease at the moment from BRAL will return to them (BACE) Spring next year to start two European routes out of MAN & the company anticipates requiring 16 pilots to crew the base. I would suspect most of this recruitment would be performed internally.

There was a thread a week or so ago that stated that the CFE 146's were rumoured to be coming to MAN from LGW. There was a lot of detail on that thread, so I suggest you do a search.

You probably already know this but BRAL have a RJ based at MAN already, G-MABR which does domestic services to destinations such as such as Belfast and Jersey.
