Eastern Airways (UK) Fleet

Sat Mar 07, 2020 5:12 pm

Following the collapse of Flybe, Eastern Airways is now operating Manchester to Southampton in its own right and online booking is open, though strangely they don’t offer online check-in and appear not to offer advance seat selection. Interestingly, the aircraft type for Manchester to Southampton is showing as “100”. As they don’t operate Fokker 100s, what could this type be?

No way!! Leased from whom? I was about to book this route when BE collapsed for early April. I have never flown on the F100 and had frankly given up hope of ever catching one. What are the chances?! My lucky day!

*edit* it shows as embraer 170 on my dates, gutted!

Apologies it turned out be an E170.
Got the info from twitter.

No worries. I already trawled the schedule looking for the fokker so I could catch it :P

Some rarer types (i.e E145) will be making more regular visits to MAN in the future with all the changes, wonder what else I'll have the chance to bag? (J41 is on the to do list).

Eastern Airways is one of the few airlines that publicly use the code "E170-100" for their E170s. That's apparently how the "100" sneaked in.

This one got a lot of people excited... then rather disappointed.

Although the 170 is still a cool little aircraft, and no doubt one of the rarer types of tomorrow.

That explains it! Thanks for the clarification.
