Default Flybe to be rebranded

It appears that Flybe is being bought by a consortium including Stobbart and Virgin Atlantic, and will continue but under the Virgin Atlantic name. The latter is not always positive in the UK with many boycotting Bransonís businesses as he tries to frustrate the UK becoming independent of the EU.

Given its origin, Virgin European would have been a great name.

They will still be part of Europe, just not part of the EU.
Those are two different things.
