Think you're listening to a load of bullshit, to be honest, Daz looks to me like some sort of crap being put out by those currently trying to discredit him

The WA deal was over 10 years ago don't you think if there was anything to it it would have come out long before now

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WA_Developments

Think its time somebody updated the wiki and sorted it out a bit but as i.m sure you can see i.m sure all this lot will have gone thru the relevant authorities at the time

Wonder if there's any truth in the rumour that less that half the money they were given to invest in the upgrade of the airport has been spent and it's not up to scratch?

Hmm - let me think........

The 'Terminal Building' that conveniently doubles up as the new Stobart HQ office, IS finished to spec
The runway on the other hand is not

Who could have predicted that when the £4.8m grant was awarded

Good job in some ways that Carlisle Airport didn't open on time. Britain's largest regional airline Flybe has just announced that it is struggling with high fuel prices and falling passenger demand and losing money hand over fist. To make things worse the rail link from Southend Airport to London now has a replacement bus service on the Southend-Shenfield section at weekends.

Stobart must be relieved at how things turned out.

The Bus Replacment is only for 9 weekends, with 7 having already been. Short term pain for long term gain!

I think Stobart Group might be interested in some cheap planes but I very much doubt they'd want to buy Flybe . Stobart are currently winding down the Flybe franchise operation. This is what they said recently. "In August, the Group announced that the UK Flybe franchise operations (UKFFO) out of London Southend Airport will be withdrawn by February 2020. The operation, for which tickets went on sale in December 2016, commenced flights in May 2017 with the purpose of building awareness and accelerating growth at the airport. The Ryanair contract was secured in June 2018 and easyJet have added a fourth aircraft based at the airport from July 2018. These operations will replace the UKFFO. "

Just reading that the Aberdeen to London City flight is now going to stop off in Newcastle both ways. Little bit more expensive than the proposed Carlisle to London Southend but much better for the City types...

In theory Loganair are still going ahead to launch flights some time next year. This news that Eastern Airways will offer a business service from LCY to NCL however will probably kill off the proposed Carlisle to Southend service. Maybe Loganair might continue with Dublin and Belfast flights for a short while as it only involves one plane. They might introduce another route such as Carlisle to Bristol if there would be sufficient demand. All in all very depressing but not unexpected.

Newcastle-London City return with Flybe (same as Eastern Air) is around £200.00 + Parking.

Carlisle-Southend return around £100.00 + return train fare to London (around £33.00)

Far simpler just getting the train from Carlisle to London for £120.70 (And usually cheaper if you book in advance)...

At least you actually end up in London, as well.
