    Flybe in trouble again?

    Flybe in survival talks again one year after Virgin stepped in.

    I see Loganair is securing Flybe air routes from Glasgow.

    Yes, I totally agree. Flybe has never been my first choice of airline, but as they have been operating from two of my local airports, I occasionally used them for convenience. Jan

    Sadly not unexpected.

    Another twist:

    Why Virgin, part owners of Flybe, could not have settled the bill is strange.

    The government did allow RB to hand back the Virgin East Coast franchise.

    If Flybe went under, domestic airports would suffer big job losses and possible closure.

    It's consistency that's the issue here.The same reasons quoted for not intervening would largely apply to Flybe too.As JC said some very wealthy companies bought this company 12 months ago for a song,why can't they put more money in?I know they are putting some more in but they could afford more.
    The commuter/connection argument doesn't really work either as bus and train companies have been allowed to go to the wall.
    As for trying to get the public to contribute money to get Big Ben to ring,really you couldn't make it up.

    How do you know what Boris alluded to,i saw that interview it was all pifflepafflewifflewaffle.

    I had to read a report to get this one "Bung a bob for Big Ben Bongs"

    JC
    Oh JC, I just knew that you would challenge my post.

    Boris was previously talking about the need for easier travel to where the jobs are. If we lost airports due to Flybe going under, it wouldn't help anyone would it?

    Hi JC

    Referring to Delboy's chart, I note that 3 of the airports on the list are tax havens - was that a factor in the decision making process??
