Loganair technically does still fly to “the Continent” as Denmark was attached to it last time I was there! Norway also is quite a sizeable operation now.

It's more likely that this has been the plan for some time and only being made public now. You don't pull together an entire sale of the Saab 340s and lease replacement ATRs in the space of a couple...

The suggestion reads as though no-one else - KLM, easyJet, Ryanair, Air France and many more - would be flying to Scotland if it became independent. I can't see that will be so. Going up against...

Isn't that kind of thing every-day ops, just like a flight arriving 25 minutes early is too? I can't see why either merits a mention.

It's just a daft comment. Flying several dozen flights a day on the former Flybe routes is an odd way of showing a lack of interest. I'd be more concerned if they were gobbling up unprofitable bits...

...which assumes they'll stick with the E145 on those routes and not flip some ATR72 flying across. They had the advantage of E170 versus Saab 340 last time and still lost royally.
