I must say I am surprised at the reported load factors during the rail strike. I think it suggests that point to point is never going to be enough to support a London service.
Looks like we were in the same queue LBAYORKIE. I was on hold for ~ 60 minutes before speaking to a human being btw.I've phoned Flybe customer services 3 times today and have been hanging on for a total of just over 2 hours. On one attempt I selected the 'make new booking' but gave up after hanging on 25 minutes! Something seriously wrong with this airline.
In fairness the I used the Belfast flights commuting to Derry with work, and no matter what time of day it was very very rare there were double digit empty seats.I base my observation on the fact that when FlyBe were on their own, it was only 4/5 daily for part of the year. We have still not recovered from the effects of covid, especially with business travel, and easyJet are also flying to BFS.
My concern is that EI/BE are trying to knock each other the route and we will end up with an even worse timetable.
Just my thoughts.
