    Has Flybe lost its way? Before it listed on the UK stock exchange it was seen as a strong regional budget airline that could profit from using its smaller planes to connect cities where the demand was too small to attract competition from rivals Ryanair and easyJet. After 3 profit warnings in a year it seems to have lost confidence in its business model and is putting short term profit ahead of longer term vision. Or am I being harsh?

      Thank you Kathleen. I think Flybe is like a lot of airlines in Europe who are scrambling to look for more income opportunities (short term leases) with the rising fuel prices. The high cost of fuel will negate many business plans that were pegged to lower costs.
