What would be your views on a regional airline starting operations out of Durham Tees Valley? Much like Eastern Airlines.

Quoting abrown532 (Thread starter):

T3 already fly from MME to ABZ, having ceased SOU (didn't it operate via LBA?) and possibly NWI. If there was sufficient demand on other routes and at adequately high prices to counteract the smallish aircraft, I am sure T3 would already be doing it.

Other possibilities, such as BHD and DUB, have been tried and cancelled by BE (BHD) and FR and RE for EI (DUB).

While not updated to reflect the cessation of MME-SOU, and ignoring the extreme unlikelihood of LON, MME itself would like to see routes listed within this link:
