whatsup32 - what gives a board of directors any greater insight into the future than you or I? Companies have their experience, and they will have models and correlations, but there is inherent uncertainty. It's a bit like people blaming Apple for not having come up with a successor product to the smart phone. This isn't something predictable, you can't just pop to the innovation cupboard and take the next blockbuster off the shelf. All we can ask of directors and executives is honesty, and prudence in balance sheet structure and capital allocation, and some domain expertise. Our skill as investors is to avoid situations where company management is deficient, and to have our own domain expertise in interpreting how macro and secular factors will impact on industry revenue and profitability. Of equal importance is our interpretation of accounts and of company announcements. For example Apple announced it would no longer report I-phone sales, Twitter will phase out reporting monthly active users, and Kellogg will no longer split out its reporting segments for North America, it will be a regional number. All of these are done to hide deterioration in those numbers. All reports are nevertheless upbeat. This is the company management doing its job for shareholders - giving them a chance to sell their shares at the highest price possible to buyers that may have less in depth knowledge.

the important bit "However the trading since the concretion of the FLYB share at minimum 0p maximum 1p is simply astonishing. Even those that traded successfully are doomed in the medium term."

hpcg. Not sure the blame should be the Private Investors alone. They read the headlines of results , listen to BOD , read the newspapers and maybe even look at brokers recommendations. If I was in their shoes I think I would be angry too. But having said that for the past month they had the option of getting out at .4-.6p . They should have taken it. I bought TUi 4 months ago. Latest information from the company 27th September was. We are firing on all cylinders expect 4th annual double digit growth , unseasonal summer has NOt effected us. Yesterday the share price dropped 20% . Company saying Summer has effected them, and NOT to expect any growth. We are reliant to a large extent on the board giving clear guidance instead of caveats

JakNife - it is situations like this, where the outcome is a known, or at least the best case is a known, that demonstrates just how ill-suited to direct investing a surprising number of market participants are. Firstly there is the evidence of FLYB itself, and I have been both long and short on several occasions over the last 8 years, that it has never been financially successful. Secondly well documented in main stream news, over capacity on European short haul routes, and poor winter load factors even from Ryanair and Easyjet. Thirdly the regular bankruptcy of small airlines. Finally and recently a Brexit deadline slow down. All these speak to substantial risk. Of course when a public (any) company goes out of business there has to be losers; every single worthless share is held by someone. What should happen in these circumstances is the share price drops very low and volume dries up. This didn't happen prior to the announcement but thus far the market has merely separated those with good judgement from those with bad judgement. That's fine we all make mistakes. However the trading since the concretion of the FLYB share at minimum 0p maximum 1p is simply astonishing. Even those that traded successfully are doomed in the medium term. On the other hand congratulations to the directors on saving jobs and the flights paid for by passengers. For some of those still employed the stay of execution will be short lived as loss making routes are culled, and locations close, but at least they have the opportunity to find alternative employment in the mean time.

If any is looking for a share that should be trading around 1p but fancies taking it up on a ride to 6p can they look at PEL, there is no 1p bid yet but I’m hoping there will be soon then it too might go to 6p for no apparent reason just like flybe. Btw don’t agree with anything that has happened here very underhand imho dyor

No wonder they put their own interest first and shafted the shareholders. Directors' shareholding of 0.40% -871664 shares. Its true saying don't invest in a company without a significant holding by the directors

the CEO won't want this to go into liquidation as she won't get her £1m bonus is that correct.

If there's still anyone paying more than 1p to buy this today then we should arrange a doctor's appointment for them.

Over on the LSE board they are mistakenly talking about the shell company being put into administration. The intention is to appoint a liquidator not an administrator. The Flybe board will justify this on the basis of the shell having no income yet still having outgoings. Once a liquidator is appointed after the necessary statutory notices there will be no company so no general meeting can be held to appoint Kohn to investigate the recent corporate history. Thoroughly despicable behaviour by the Flybe board. Apart from seeking a High Court injunction against the asset sale, I cannot see owt else Hoskings and Tinkler can do about it.

Nothing that we didn't know, just more desperate language from the masters of half truths and deceit.It's still a no vote from me. That way they won't get even a penny for their 870,000 shares. Let's see what Tinkler's next move is now.

Often when flying to Spain I fly Swissair, KLM or Lufthansa as often cheaper than Ryanair or Easyjet and these airlines also give food and drink as free as part of the ticket price.

loganair. Funny I was looking at flying to Orlando and compared prices with Norwegian, Virgin and BA . Norwegian was 20% cheaper but had fewer flights , baggage allowences ( 20KG) and you weren’t certain of flying Norwegian as they leased staff/aircraft from cheap alternatives as B787 RR engines are still not reliable. As with others their starting price is cheap , but you are NOT allowed checked baggage . Who goes on holiday for two weeks with no luggage. So the price creeps up and you end up with premium economy at £1,000 each

https://www.ft.com/content/7edf613e-2a6f-11e9-a5ab-ff8ef2b976c7 I was just reading that article. Management there turned down an offer, IAG wanted to buy them now they have sent message to buyers that they may be willing to sell. Ships sailed I think.

Just a side line for a moment: Norwegian, a low-cost airline, reported its full-year results today. In 2013, when still focusing on short-haul routes, it made an operating profit of NKr970m ($166m). As a result of difficulties in its long-haul business, its fortunes have since reversed. In 2018 it made an operating loss of NKr3.85bn. Its fate is now uncertain, which is bad news for flyers. The company’s collapse would allow Europe’s three big airline groups to raise fares on transatlantic flights.
