Theoretically that will be the plan but in s needs much situation I'm sure one or two might be used.

In a nutshell, what CJF seems to be saying is that potential inconvience of loyal service bus customers is acceptable because the company/depot/shareholders benefit. Unless of course the mega money goes back to the 437 etc one way or another?
As Arriva are a 'publicly' owned company, they have no shareholders. Or were you speaking generally?.

I m forgetting they aren't British. I was speaking generally in terms of this growing trend in the bus industry to disregard - I was going to use a stronger word - their most loyal customers. Also, I didn't realise from the original posts that only some. working s were affected. Provided the busiest journeys retain decker s then maybe the inconvenience risk is indeed slight

Alongside 4176 is 4211 also on 409 a complete and utter waste of resources when there's plenty of single deckers on 432/433/437. In other news 2603 is now here.

Looks like due to Victoria St roadworks, all Arriva Cross River services are terminating at Whitechapel / starting Sir Thomas St this
All noticed some Green Lane 14 services terminating at Queen Sq

Correct, they did the same yesterday too. I believe the queue from Cook Street with the poorly sequenced lights and the road works added almost 50mins onto some journeys hence the reason.

Don't know if it's been reported yet (I wasn't aware anyway...) but 2604 is working out of Laird Street currently, spotted by Woodside today, think it was on the 410 but the blinds didn't show on my pic....
