I have immense sympathy for everyone in the airline and travel industries, having been in the airline business for over 30 years, but I can’t help but feel that some members of the Great British...

Well I’ve always been open about my view that this was just a slot play. My guess is that, in due course, new Flybe will announce that of course it was never about slots but sadly due to the pandemic...

The suggestion in that article that Carlisle faces the same sort of challenges as IOM seems to miss the fact that IOM is surrounded by sea.

With my qualification of a “reasonably intense schedule “ a reasonable rule of thumb is five crews per aircraft to allow for leave, sickness etc. Cabin crew for AT7 is 2 so 5 crews x 2 crew members x...

Frankly I think you’re all bonkers bothering to debate this. It’s a slot play, not a Flybe relaunch.

I would just add that this is not the “Flybe Appreciation” thread and people are allowed to give their views without it being considered trolling. I largely agree with BA318’s points. Additionally, I...
