Flybe are confirming rumours that four bases will be closed and also, all Emb. 195's will be returned to lessors. :apologetic:

Sad. I flew on Flybe last year from BHX to BOD and it was quite good.

Not strictly true. 2 bases are to close at the end of the summer schedule (my base at CWL & DSA) and EXT is closing as an ejet base but will remain as a Q400 base. Luckily for me I have just joined easyjet left seat and I'm currently doing my Airbus 320 conversion.
The aircraft to go are the handback of the remaining 6 x E195s plus 4 x E175s and the 4 x E175s on order will be cancelled. This will leave 7 x E175s in fleet plus the Q400s. Personally I think there's more cuts to be announced but time will tell.

From the inside! The writing was on the wall. Congratulations on the promotion.
