Eastern are, apparently, to commence a new thrice-daily service between Aberdeen and Bristol as of their winter schedule. I wonder whether it will be operated by the J41 or the ERJ and whether or not it will be operated on weekends. In terms of the aircraft, my bets are on the J41.

More than likely a J41 as I think the ERJs are currently busy on the ABZ-NWI,ABZ-NCL-SOU and EDI-NWI flights.

I also think the J41 is odds-on favourite for the route as Eastern Airways still do not appear to me to have added the number of routes required to keep the 12 additional J41's they took on from BA CitiExpress busy.

Any clues as to where the new routes will be from and to? Which airports have recently lost services from ABZ and MAN?

ABZ has pretty good links these days though I suppose they could maybe consider ABZ-LPL-CWL or ABZ-IOM-CWL. Maybe they will look at serving some of the Hebridean airports such as Stornaway or Benbecula.

MAN has good UK links though maybe they might look at a route to NCL (formerly flown by Gill Airways) as the airline already serves both airports.

Other routes I'd like to see (which should fit into their existing network quite well) are:

HUY-EDI (former Air UK)
HUY-BFS
HUY/NWI-CDG (NWI-CDG former Suckling route)
NWI-HUY-GLA
Leeds/Bradford-LGW (served by many carriers over the years)
Leeds/Bradford-BRS-CWL (former Capital/Gill Airways (BRS)/BA Citiexpress (BRS)

Don't go there! This route is unprofitable - and it is almost as quick my train!

A NCL-NWI might be a possibility, as well as NCL-ORK and maybe EDI-ABZ?

I don't see why there should be an EDI-ABZ, I'm sure its only 30-40 miles by car!

Ok maybe slightly more... But still I don't think it could be a popular route between two small airports.

That'd be like a commercial flight between BRS and CWL  Nuts

EDI-ABZ is about 90 miles or so...

EGGD - don't forget that Eastern does ABZ-Wick.

"Leeds/Bradford-LGW"

Not likely: Eastern said, when it was just formed, that it won't serve any airport within London because of the congestion.

Eastern also said that it will only operate routes on which airlines have previously operated but failed. They argued that the cause of them ceasing operation was because of aircraft utilisation. Accordingly, Eastern can operate several times per weekday thereby increasing aircraft utilisation.

G - That doesn't count!!  Laugh out loud

ok so BRS-CWL is 40km and EDI-ABZ is 150km.

close enough!  Laugh out loud.

Still, I think its a little short to have a regular scheduled service.

I would love to see more domestic services from NCL. If Eastern where to go into NWI that would be great, didn't Air UK do that once? I also love the new BRS route with Easyjet. Go on BA drop all your UK routes and let someone more interesting and cheaper take over.
