Question Are Eastern in trouble (again)?

While taxying out at MAN today, I noticed an Eastern Jetstream at the end of the pier. All secured and looking (possibly) impounded.

My F/O said they may be in trouble again, or still not sorted out from last time.

Anyone know anything?

The A/C in question was tucked up waiting to do a charter the next day. Since Eastern have a base at MAN this should not be such a surprse. What does an impounded A/C look like anyway, much like a parked one ?

As for being in trouble again and still not sorted from thelast time, what last time ? Never happened, more aircraft, increased frequency, good load factors, etc etc....
