Good news on the way for increased expansion from Flybe if the above is accurate.

I think there might be a few more orders for the Q400. The performance and economics are hard to resist -- all you need is to disabuse passengers of the notion that it's old technology because it has propellers.
Never let the facts get in the way of a good story.

It is quite a shame that no Canadian airlines fly Q400's. AC orders 90 regional jets from Bombardier and Embraer, but NO Q400.

$50+ oil serves them right.
