Whatsup32 - I regularly prefer to fly to MAN or LBA from SOU because it saves me hours in time. Ok, there's car hire involved but on corporate rates it's very cheap. To save 10hours of my working week I'm quite happy to have the company spend £200.

Local businesses tend to keep domestic airlines afloat IMO. The link-up with Virgin may help. I'd like to see how that actually works. Depending on Brexit and tariffs, supply chains and customers _may_ become more domestic based going forward which will be good for Connect, but the failures and consolidation in the industry are a real concern. I am starting to think that Stobart has just inherited more problems that weigh more than the opportunity. :(

Mrs Whatsup and I just visited Scotland from London for 4 days. If we decided to fly we would have had to drive to City airport , park at airport, arrive Edinburgh rent a car , after 4 days return car fly back, pick up car and home. A casual drive up A1M took us 8.5 hrs, had we flown we could have saved 3 hrs at a cost of £400? Park-tickets and car hire. Plus the hassle of airports. We preferred driving as it worked out cheaper and less hassle. Would imagine others do too, hence why we don’t have a successful domestic airline .

Regional jets - other then to make a 'Statement' for the aitline what is the point of flying a regional jet on a route of 1 1/2hrs or less an aircraft that costs as much as double that of a turbo-prop on the same route, is no quicker then a turbo-prop on the same route and carries no more passengers than a turbo-prop.

Regional jets I do not think are good for small airlines as are very expensive to run and maintain, OK for mainline airlines such as Swissair or KLM. The 68 seater Be-ATP was an excellent turbo-prop espically on routes of up to 1 1/2hrs, very passenger friendly, very fuel efficient, far better then any regional jet and far better and far more surperior aircraft then either the ATR 42/72 or Dash 8s. I remember on routes of up to an hour the Bae-ATP was as quick as any regional jet or even the A320 or B737 types of aircraft. At one time Bae where going to make a smaller version J51, carrying around 50 passengers, renamed the ATP to J61 and also the J71 and 80 seater aircraft was on the drawing board. All 3 aircraft could have been flown under a joint rating by the same pilot. Bae were going to have the J31 all the way up to the J71 for the regional airlines.

Flybe do not fly passengers around for tuppence ha'penny - they are one of the most expensive arilines to fly on. One can tell an an industry has had it, for example seeing on the side of aircraft "anyone can fly" Once anyone can do something means the prices are going to drop to rock bottom to allow the lowest common denominator to be able to do what ever it is. Flying, Banking, Supermarkets have all dropped down to the lowest common denominator.

All the demise/takeover of Flybe will create is higher prices for passengers, it is just not economic to fly people around the domestic route for tuppence ha’penny, as for BMI., I am staggered it has survived this long on so few passengers, could have carried those half million on five planes allowing even for maintenance!

Flybe could easily have done a Flybmi and collapsed in days if it hadn't been taken over by Connect Airways. I think the only difference is Flybe have 1/3rd of the domestic UK market, so in a way had too big a market share to be allowed to fail and why I think the take over and sale of Flybe's assets were pushed through quickly to stop Flybe from collapsing.

Loganair operates craft under franchise to Flybe in mainland Scotland, as well as Orkney, Shetland, and the Western Isles. From October 2014 it has been operating a Dublin -Inverness route as part of the Flybe franchise. Change Operations as Flybe franchisee In June 2005, Loganair was awarded a contract from the Irish Government to operate a daily return service from Knock, County Mayo to Dublin. This public service obligation (PSO) route operated for a period of three years as British Airways, with effect from 22 July 2005. The operation ceased in July 2008, the contract having been lost to Aer Arann. The airline also bought routes from Citiexpress in March 2004.[7] It flew BA's British Aerospace ATPs on these routes until May 2005, when further Saab 340 aircraft were purchased to replace them.[citation needed] Until October 2008 Loganair was a British Airways franchisee, operating flights sold through BA using BA flight codes. Loganair's inter-island operations between the Orkney and Shetland Islands carried out using Britten-Norman Islanders was removed from the franchise agreement in 2004. The flights have since been marketed under Loganair's own name, rather than British Airways'. Loganair became a franchise airline of Flybe, operating in the Flybe colours.[15][16] Flights are also operated under a codeshare agreement with British Airways connecting flights from Scotland to London. The franchise has been criticised by residents in the Scottish islands for what they perceive to be excessively high fares,[17][18] and a Facebook campaign set up in June 2015 to highlight the issue attracted over 7400 "likes" over the course of its first weekend.[19] On 8 July 2011, it was announced that Loganair had agreed to purchase Cambridge based ScotAirways. ScotAirways continued to trade as a separate entity (using its original name of Suckling Airways) and holding its own licences and approvals until April 2013.[20][21] In anticipation of the end of operations on behalf of Flybe, in April 2017 Loganair unveiled its independent corporate livery on this Saab 340 at Manchester Airport. Services to Belfast and to Birmingham from Dundee ended on 2 December 2012.[22] After CityJet had terminated its services between Dundee and London City Airport in January 2014, Loganair took over the route, operating from Dundee to London Stansted Airport, with the support of a PSO agreement.[23] In May 2015 two Viking Air DHC-6-400 Twin Otter aircraft were acquired by Highlands and Islands Airports to be operated by Loganair on the Scottish Government's Public Service Obligation routes between Glasgow and Campbeltown, Tiree and Barra.[24] In August 2015 the airline became part of a new regional airline group, Airline Investments Limited (AIL),[25] along with East Midlands-based airline bmi regional[26] On 21 November 2016, Flybe and Loganair announced that their franchise agreement would terminate on 31 August 2017. Despite headlines, it is unclear who initiated the termination.[27] Loganair later relaunched its website without renewed interline agreements with Flybe or Aer Lingus.[28] In April 2017, pending the termination of the Flybe franchise agreement, Loganair unveiled its new independent corporate livery on Saab 340B Freighter G-LGNN. From 1 September the airline began operating "in its own right" for the first time in 24 years.[29] Loganair signed a codeshare agreement with British Airways (BA), effective from 1 September 2017 (coinciding with the launch of independent operations), allowing passengers to book through flights onto BA's global network.[30][31]

I understand Flybmi is owned by the same company that owns Loganair. I hope I'm OK and I'm also not about to go bust.

Price will collapse to a penny on Monday as it is clear that FLYB would be going the way of FlyBMI without new well capitalised owners. Actually would probably gone out of business before the latter. Any hope the fantacists may harbour about some sort of successful legal action because the board managed to save the operations are clearly risible.

Flybmi going into admin , may be slightly positive news for Flybe as it reduces competition. Although they don’t have too many overlapping routes.
