Whoops. I thought I was posting in the Flybe thread so in fairness, in this thread you won’t find any claims from me that Flybe 2 was a slot scam but there’s plenty in the Flybe thread

I remember the old,old days when the international scheduled routes were zero (maybe Dublin, nothing else). The highlight (summer only) was the Sterling Caravelle student charter on a Wednesday.

I think several of us, including me, have long thought that the whole Flybe v 2 is a slot scam. We just can't quite see how they think it's going to work.
