I rather think it has more to do with the fact that Flybe has lost market share on the Gatwick route and therefore can't justify putting the Embraer 175 on the route. I can't believe that the runway will not be up to standard once Lagan have finished so Flybe's comments don't make sense. This was the airline that originally intended to operate the larger Embraer 195 into Guernsey. I hardly expect we will see Easyjet on the Gatwick route when then is already two operators on the route. In any case Easyjet are not in the habit of operating high frequency UK domestic routes. Just check out their once a day Gatwick to the Isle of Man operation and this is a route where the only competition is the 4 times daily service operated by Flybe. In Guernsey there are up to 11 flights a day in summer to Gatwick (5 by Flybe and 6 by Aurigny). I think we are already well served on this route.
