    Naturalmente la mia visione del Regno Unito e' puramente Londra-centrica (come tutti i Londinesi del resto)

    Intanto la MAEL (Monarch Engineering) ha interrotto il contratto di manutenzione a Flybe a BHX e MAN.

    UK regional flybe and MRO provider in dispute

    UK regional carrier flybe has accused maintenance provider Monarch Aircraft Engineering Limited (MAEL) of breach of contract by withdrawing its services.
    The Exeter-based airline, which recently put itself up for sale, served a notice of termination on MAEL Nov. 27 after the latter had allegedly “unilaterally and in breach of our contract” halted services on flybe aircraft.
    In a response Nov. 28, MAEL said it “served notice on its contract with flybe earlier this year. Due to circumstances we cannot disclose, we decided to suspend repair and maintenance operations for flybe on 23rd November. Flybe subsequently terminated their contract with us on 27th November, 2018.”
    MAEL provided flybe with line and light maintenance services at Birmingham and Manchester airports.
    The airline noted that “MAEL recently finished a complex restructuring exercise … and flybe had been wholly supportive of MAEL throughout that process. Flybe [is] therefore very disappointed by these events, which appear to have been undertaken without due consideration of our business, customers and operations, and with no legal justification.”

    Opinione pro-Virgin dell'Economist

    British Airways should not be allowed to buy Flybe

    Passengers will be harmed if the two are allowed to merge

    WITHIN DAYS of putting itself up for sale, Flybe, a beleaguered regional airline based in Britain, has attracted interest from the country’s two largest carriers. Its executives are hoping for a bidding war between International Airlines Group (IAG), which is the parent company of British Airways (BA), Britain’s flag carrier, and Virgin Atlantic, its main rival. Flybe’s shares have surged in value due to the tussle. But only one of the bids would be good for the travelling public.

    IAG already controls over 54% of the take-off and landing-slots at London Heathrow, Britain’s biggest airport. By contrast Heathrow’s second-largest carrier, Virgin Atlantic, has a market share of less than 5%. For London-based travellers who only fly short-haul, there is meaningful competition in the skies from low-cost carriers. But for regular business travellers—who demand multiple daily flights, lounge access and a good frequent-flyer scheme—there is only one attractive airport in London, and only one attractive carrier at that airport: BA.

    Britain’s flag carrier cannot be blamed for inheriting its privileged status. But regulators can be blamed for allowing the airline to exploit it. Over the past few years the airline has been accused of hacking back at service levels. Baggage allowances, legroom and on-board refreshments were all cut. This year BA began charging passengers to sit next to each other. The tactics are justified by an alleged need to compete with short-haul low-cost carriers. Yet the frugality extends to long-haul routes on which there are few direct competitors. Constant criticism of BA on social media and in the national press achieves little. Its customers keep coming back, because they have no other alternatives on many of those routes.

    If BA is allowed to buy Flybe, this monopoly will extend to other parts of Britain. Heathrow currently has limited appeal to those living in the Midlands and the North. Both BA and Virgin Atlantic would seek to change this by plugging Flybe’s network into their Heathrow hubs. But unlike BA, Virgin Atlantic also operates long-haul flights from other British cities like Manchester and Glasgow. Strengthening these secondary hubs will weaken Heathrow’s, and thus BA’s, grip on the market. Sky-high profits at BA amid declining service standards show the flag carrier has an unassailable lead over competitors. A Flybe-Virgin tie-up might be the first step towards giving it a run for its money.

    ANALYSIS: How Virgin could benefit by acquiring Flybe

    When Flybe put itself on sale earlier this month it looked like it might end up as a one horse race, with previous suitor Stobart expected to make a fresh bid for the UK regional carrier. But Virgin Atlantic's disclosure that it is also considering making an offer adds an intriguing new dynamic to the sale process.

    Virgin says its talks with the Exeter-based carrier range from "enhanced commercial arrangements to a possible offer". But what are the potential benefits of a tie-up for the London-based carrier?

    An anonymous source with knowledge of the matter tells FlightGlobal that Flybe has "a lot of potential but it will require someone quite brave" to take it on.

    FEED

    The two UK airlines are already codeshare partners, with Flybe using its UK domestic operations to feed Virgin's long-haul services from Manchester, London Heathrow and elsewhere.

    Flybe has essentially replaced Virgin's Little Red operation, using the defunct carrier's slots at Heathrow to start routes Little Red previously provided to Edinburgh and Aberdeen.

    An acquisition of Flybe could offer the opportunity to find even more synergies between the two airline's networks. In Manchester, Virgin is planning a new service to Los Angeles and will boost frequencies to other US cities. The carrier already operates to New York, Orlando and Atlanta from the UK airport.

    A tie-up could provide opportunities for Virgin to better align Flybe's UK domestic services into Manchester to better match its US schedule and maximise feed opportunities.

    Virgin is 49% owned by Delta Air Lines, and the two carriers are in the process of cementing closer ties with Delta's SkyTeam alliance partner Air France-KLM. Under the proposed deal, Air France-KLM will acquire 31% of Virgin Atlantic from the Virgin Group for £220 million ($287 million), reducing the latter's stake to 20%. This move is part of Virgin joining Delta and Air France-KLM's joint ventures in Europe and on transatlantic routes.

    Outgoing Virgin chief executive Craig Kreeger told FlightGlobal earlier this year that he expects the tie-up to clear regulatory hurdles and come into force early in 2019.

    KLM is already a significant operator in the UK, especially in the regions that it connects into Amsterdam Schiphol. A Virgin takeover of Flybe could indirectly provide Air France-KLM with even greater access to the UK market.

    FLYBE ASSETS

    Flybe's portfolio of UK airport slots might only be of nominal interest to Virgin. The carrier has significant operations at airports such as Manchester, Exeter, Southampton and some slots at London Heathrow, although it does not own the latter having been awarded them for specific services to Scotland.

    But beyond the UK, Flybe holds airport slots at Paris Charles de Gaulle and Amsterdam Schiphol, and these could be of value, especially in the context of Virgin's wider strategic relationship with Delta and Air France-KLM.

    Flight Fleets Analyzer data shows that Flybe has a fleet of 68 aircraft in service, consisting of 53 Bombardier Q400s, 11 Embraer 175s and four E190s, with the latter two types being slowly phased out. Flybe owns 18 of the Q400s and seven of the E175s.

    At first glance, Flybe's fleet of predominately turboprops would seem to be of little value to Virgin beyond their use to feed its long-haul operations. However, if the wider relationship with Air France-KLM is considered, the aircraft could in places be redeployed for use with KLM Cityhopper or elsewhere in the Franco-Dutch airline group's network.

    Meanwhile, Flybe's recent sale and lease back of a hangar at its Exeter base for £5 million ($6.4 million) and its deal with NordLB to release $5 million of funds secured against one of its Bombardier Q400 turboprops might be small amounts, but could be a way to advertise to a potential buyer that it is still able to raise money and has assets of some value.

    RESTRUCTURING

    The decision by Flybe's board to put the UK carrier on sale earlier this month came as it disclosed a halving of pre-tax profits to £7.4 million over the first half of the year. In October, it had issued a profit warning for the full year, citing a weaker outlook for demand and the effects of fuel and currency movements.

    While the performance was far from encouraging and saw a further denting of its share price, beyond those recent numbers there is evidence that Flybe's underlining business model might be fairly robust.

    Flybe has itself identified factors dragging down its performance such as unfavourable aircraft leasing agreements. Excluding the effect of an onerous E195 lease, Flybe's adjusted pre-tax profit of £9.9 million was "slightly ahead" of guidance given in October.

    Flybe is in the midst of a restructuring programme to cut capacity to better match demand, while also trying to improve yield on seat sales. In its last financial disclosure, the airline said its third-quarter performance, beginning on 1 October, had been "positive".

    While it has cut seat capacity in the third quarter by 6% compared with the previous year, it has increased the proportion of seats sold from 59% to 63%.

    Analysts Liberum issued a note in which it says it still saw "turnaround potential at Flybe as it brings capacity into line with potential profitable demand".

    "There remain self-help opportunities to continue to improve revenue per seat, such as new commercial systems, and non-fuel unit costs ought to be brought under better control, helped by cheaper aircraft leases, even with the headwind of seat capacity reductions."

    If Virgin could strip Flybe of its additional businesses such as its training academy and even its MRO arm and exit its unfavourable lease agreements, the airline could become a streamlined operating unit and theortically profitable. It could also have uses within the wider Air France-KLM group, potentially in a similar feeding role to that which KLM Cityhopper performs in the Netherlands.

    At present both EasyJet and Stobart have declined to comment officially on any interest they may have in Flybe, which makes it difficult to predict whether a geniune bidding war could develop for the carrier's assets, but the rising price of Flybe's shares certainly suggests that the markets sees rising interest in the UK carrier as genuine.

    Virgin continues to circle Flybe

    Virgin Atlantic is still reviewing its options with regard to Flybe a month after first disclosing its interest in the UK regional carrier.
    In a stock market notice issued today, Virgin says discussions with Flybe’s management team are continuing and that these include "potentially making an offer" for the Exeter-based airline.
    The London-based carrier disclosed its interest in Flybe on 23 November.
    Since Flybe disclosed it was putting itself up for sale in mid-November, Virgin is the only party to confirm it is in talks with the regional carrier.
    UK media reports have though linked Stobart and IAG as potential suitors. Stobart had an offer rejected for Flybe earlier this year, while IAG - whose British Airways unit remains a small shareholder in Flybe dating back to its sale of BA Connect - has been an active player in airline acquisitions, including the former BMI operation. Both companies have declined to comment on these reports.
    Virgin says that in accordance with UK takeover and merger rules, it will place a copy of the announcement on its corporate website no later than noon on 20 December.
    Virgin discloses that law firm Rothschild & Sons is acting for it in relation to the talks with Flybe. FG

    Flybe rescued by Virgin and Stobart

    Flybe is being bought for £2.2m by a consortium including Virgin Atlantic and Stobart Group.
    The sale comes after the Exeter-based airline's warning in October that it would lose £22m because of poor demand, a weaker pound and higher fuel costs.
    Shareholders in Flybe will receive 1p a share, while the consortium, which also includes venture capital firm Cyrus, will inject £100m.
    It will operate under the Virgin Atlantic brand.
    Flybe shares closed on Thursday at 16.38p.
    The shares had been trading at more than 30p before the profits warning, which sparked a downward spiral in the price.
    The consortium, known as Connect Airways, will initially lend £20m to Flybe to support the on-going operations of the airline.
    A further £80m will be invested in Flybe, which describes itself as Europe's largest regional airline.
    Christine Ourmières-Widener, Flybe's chief executive, said: "The industry is suffering from higher fuel costs, currency fluctuations and significant uncertainties presented by Brexit. We have been affected by all of these factors which have put pressure on short-term financial performance".

    Flybe to sell Gatwick slots to IAG's Vueling

    UK regional operator Flybe Group is selling slots at London Gatwick to IAGbudget carrier Vueling.
    Flybe Group says it has agreed a deal under which the Spanish airline will pay £4.5 million for the slots.
    The funds will be paid in two tranches – an initial payment for slots which will be used for the summer season this year, as well as subsequent summers.
    Flybe says the remaining payment is due in June this year, covering slots for the winter 2019-20 season and following winters.
    Only the south-western UK city of Newquay is listed as a destination from London Gatwick by Flybe’s reservations engine. FG

    Sensato. Alla fine LGW non fa molto traffico transfer, e quel poco che c'e' su VS viene comunque fatto via interline da altre compagnie. LHR, e i transiti regions-AMS/CDG, sono quelli che contano.

    Flybe shareholders approve sale to Connect Airways

    Flybe plane
    Flybe Group has formally accepted the recommended cash offer by Connect Airways Limited, under which Connect Airways will acquire the entire issued and to be issued share capital of the airline.

    The decision was announced today, following a Court Meeting and a General Meeting.

    In January, Flybe’s board approved the £2.2 million sale to Connect Airways, which is a consortium made up of Virgin Atlantic, Stobart Group and Cyrus Capital.

    The results of the shareholder votes will not impact the carrier's assets, flights and operations of Flybe, which would continue to operate as normal under the ownership of Connect Airways following the completion of the sale of Flybe's two operating subsidiaries, Flybe Limited (including Flybe Aviation Services Limited) and Flybe.com Limited.

    Completion of the acquisition remains subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the remaining conditions set out in a Scheme Document, including the court sanctioning the scheme at a court hearing, which is scheduled for 10.30 am on 8 March 2019.
