Flybe certainly operated numerous profitable routes however I think the difficulty will be obtaining both aircraft and crew, more so the former. The Q400 was plagued with issues and became a bit of a...

as you say, it’s a temporary suspension due to extremely low attrition rates. Airbus seems to be the belle of the ball at the moment. Some movement from the 737 fleet may see things pick up again
