Thanks for the replies. I have bitten the bullet and bought a back up flight with another airlines just in case. It was £60 return so would rather lose that than have to pay massive prices if FlyBE do pull the flights.

Honestly, what's the problem?! I worked in the past for an Iranian airline and this nothing new to me. I always had the feeling, that onboard are more crew members than passengers (or cargo). Flights were operated at least by double set of crew! One set of crew for the outbound and one for the inbou...Jump to post
