Flybe Aircraft

Tue Jul 04, 2006 7:23 pm

Two questions:-

i.) Flying Flybe SOU-JER in a few weeks, Expedia says aircraft is:- DE HAVILLAND DHC-8 DASH 8-400 DASH 8Q. Is this the Q400 which they use to DUB? i.e They don't use the old Dash 8 anymore?

The FLYbe fleet comprises of Q400, BAe 146-200, BAe 146-300, 737-300 and EMB 195.

Your Flight will be operated by a Dash Q400.

The New EMB 195 will originally serve BHX - ABZ and SOU - EDI initially.

I thought BHX-ABZ will be a Dash 8 route?

737-300

My understanding was that this type is actually operated by Astraeus obo BE; is that not the case?

Yes. And I take it the EMB-195's will start to replace these leased aircraft once they have settled into the BE fleet?

Well the FLYbe press release states that BHX - ABZ will be EMB195 operated when they come on line.

As for the 737-300 , I believed there leased and operate mainly to FAO, MJV, ALC and AGP

The 195's are as a direct replacement for the older, nasty, 146's. Not sure if the 737's will stay in the fleet for summer routes?

It is true, the EMB 195 will replace the 146 , The 737 provide more cost efficient services to the Spanish/Portugese markets

Surprising choice of first route from BHX (I would have though EDI and GLA could have done with capacity). I can only guess they are trying hard to compete with BA Connect on the ABZ route and hope the EMB-195 will enable them to offer a better product than BA Connect

If they are going to continue to operate them long term, would it more sense to operate them, themselves rather than lease them?

The 737's will be disappearing from Flybe operations at the end of this summer season. The EMB195 will take over these routes, but I expect that there will be some modification to the timetables to increase utilisation maybe?

The 195's look to be delivered over an 18 month timeframe, they'll be coming in thick and fast with 14 planned in this period.

When will the 195 be going to BHD? I'm desperate to fly on it when I go to Northern Ireland in September!

How does the Emb-195 compare with the 737-300 in terms of performance?

Can it reach FAO / MJV / AGP etc. without payload penalties?
I don't like signatures...

The Embraer website says that for the E195 to manage max range of 3,800 km, the aircraft can only take 70 pax. ABZ-AGP is 2,300 km, so I guess the aircraft can take all 118 pax on that route as it is 1,500 km shorter than the aircraft's max range...?

The 146 has an image problem, and I'm not sure it deserves it. It really isn't bad at all. No different to any other narrowbody to me (I'm 6'3"), except that it takes 25 minutes longer. I travel to Andalucia about 5 times a year, and I'd use Flybe more if they weren't quite so pricey.
