Perhaps we ought to clarify something here. The previous runway was perfectly able to accommodate Embraer E175s, and Flybe had promised that Guernsey would be the first base to get the new jets - simply to through a spanner into the works of the Blurigny deal. They reneged on that promise. The new runway is even better equipped to handle the 175s, and yet they are still using it as a bargaining chip - those times are gone and they need to know it. If Flybe wishes to gain a competitive advantage over the States-owned airline, it must deploy the Embraer onto the LGW-GCI route. As this is a matter of choice and nothing more, if it does not then it does not at its own peril - not due to the faults of any other person, government or authority.
