airspeed75

Don't believe all this nonsense with Zoom, It's what the multi millionaires who own these platforms want you to believe. The truth tells for itself that when Boris announced his plan to...

What the dickens are you on about? I've never been angry about ASW, My username has nothing to do with the airline!

Skipness One Foxtrot

Very different to what you said previously. If Flybe comes back so what? It increases competition and keeps fares low, If Loganair or Eastern go bust so what? Another airline...

Atlantic Explorer

It's called economic recovery. No different to the financial crash of 2008 when a few airlines went bust. Or the crash back in the 90s which in part saw off Pan Am & TWA.

Skipness One Foxtrot

The old Flybe didn't kill off Loganair or Eastern so why would a new company? It seems your problem is being a communist. Don't forget Loganair is owned by the same company...

Completely agree RogueOne so many people wanting to see the airline fail and saying it's all about selling slots. Shame on them.

southside bobby

We both know you're a Flybe hater so I suspect it's more you don't want them to come back rather than actually believing the nonsense you spout.

Air NZ slots were long haul, Flybe's can only be used for short haul even with grandfather rights so the idea they would make millions out of it isn't true. 3 time i've said that now.

I know it's a fantasy because I just said it for comparison. The point being Flybe was well known for being more expensive than other low cost airlines.

shamrock7seal

It goes to show how much damage a certain CEO did. Flybe had 163m in spare cash in 2016. By 2019 that was almost gone and Connect Airways kept it limping on for another 14 months.

That won't last, people prefer face to face conversations, "Zoom" is just another 'cool' thing at the moment, just like Facebook it eventually gets boring even though everyone has it.

It would have happened anyway, BA have been thinking about it for some time. With Crossrail coming soon it's easier for those in Canary Wharf to travel to Heathrow and fly on a bigger 777 or likewise.
