My Opinion.... FlyBE are going to reduce the number of existing routes and with it the number of smaller regional Dash 8 aircraft, and the staff to fly and service them and the routes which they operate on. Ryanair will take over Aer Lingus, and will be forced to divest some of their routes and aircraft to another airline (probably FlyBE) as ordered by EU rules. FlyBE then will be back at square one, BUT with larger, former Ryanair aircraft, operating to destinations which Ryanair can no longer operate. These jets are Boeing 737 aircraft. They [FlyBE] have no interest in operating Embraer aircraft to the islands, so there is not a chance they will operate Boeings. I anticipate FlyBE giving more threats to the Channel Island Governments, and eventually pulling out of being based in the islands altogether. And heres a thought.... FlyBE have already said they will operate aircraft on leases to other islands complete with crew. Hate to say it, but maybe this would suit Blue Islands or Aurigny?
