Quoting Eurohub (Reply 11): How will BE serve the routes announced thus far? Q400s based at EMA or W-rotations from other bases?
BHD/EDI/GLA-EMA is/are to be operated by BHD/EDI/GLA based aircraft, and JER-EMA will be operated by a JER based aircraft this winter as well
This winter the single based EMA aircraft will be fully occupied with CDG and AMS but the move to 2 based aircraft next Summer should mean extra flights and/or some existing flights moved onto EMA based aircraft
Quoting goldorak (Reply 1): Any code-share with AF to CDG (as they are code-sharing on several other France-UK routes) ?
No, but it would surely make sense to get one organised

Quoting airbuseric (Reply 13): Well, if an airline keeps servicing routes for years, you can expect those routes to be profitable. Otherwise the airine is run by a group of lunatics.
Your expectation may be true if it applied to, say, FR, but not necessarily every other airline despite the illogicality that may imply. Indeed, it is widely known bmibaby has always been a basket case financially yet it 'survived' for 10 years. Still, we cannot tell whether its AMS services were profitable or not, so we can but guess.
