Far from being left to rot, the 328s are on a care and maintenance programme and hangared around half the time each. Several sales prospects still live, apparently, but a few have fallen through...

Combinations were regular through lockdown and can happen occasionally, but not planned (to the best of my knowledge).

And the 340A Freighters are still in the fleet - just swapping out for C...

Itís not as bad as you might think. Roundtrip flight at £40k cost against £15k or so for going to the usual place near Lisbon. When an Embraer C Check can easily cost £350-400k, the extra £25k of...

The runway width isn't really an issue - LCY is 30 metres wide and there are many airports through the Greek islands like JMK, JSI, JTR which are 30m wide and comfortably handling large aircraft like...

I think most of us have got that. My laugh or cry point was that the Faroe Islands are nothing to do with the Shetland Islands and I don't think that was confusion caused by Look North!

If the definition of a lifeline route is that it's a PSO, then all of them are subsidised. The other routes aren't but many are seen as lifelines.

And yes Loganair is a business, but one that...

Either which way, it's not true.....

Four routes out of probably 25 or 30 within Scotland are subsidised - haven't counted the Islander services within that. Many in the islands consider every...

Is there a reason for these ongoing anti-Loganair outpourings based on factually incorrect information?

The comment about the reason for 145s swapping every day is complete and utter tosh. There...

Isn't the point that GLA-MAN was dead as a route before Flybe ceased trading anyway - they'd dropped it a few months earlier - but EDI-MAN was still going?

Covered on line a couple of weeks ago. Seasonal routes not happening for this year but will be back next year. Carlisle won't be back but that's the airport's call.

It was apparently "fake news" to begin with. I don't believe easyJet have ever themselves announced it and it's never been put on sale.

I wouldn't call that a "best case scenario" if you're an Edinburgh-based BACF pilot or cabin crew member. It's all in the perspective. Thoughts with those who may well be affected....

There's clearly not a lot of point in trying to reason with someone who has their own agenda and is able to be negative about everything!

What no-one also knows is any level of involvement that...

The level of judgement being passed on the basis of guesswork and no facts makes for fascinating reading. We don't know if the "bailout" is a loan or a subsidy. If it is a loan then easyJet took...

Given that everyone works as part of the same group to make things happen, I don't think you can. We stand or fall together, that much is clear.
