No one mentions easyJet growing further at LGW...

I wonder if they could purchase enough new slots, maybe they would consider consolidating their London operations from four to three bases? They are unlikely to be receiving any new Airbus for the forseeable future, so why not simply move them south of the river!

They make no secret that Gatwick is their most lucrative base.

The Stansted base is a shadow of the years gone by when it was Go/post-easyJet takeover, and I am sure it has been mentioned they were down to 6-8 aircraft. I am sure LTN/SEN could pick up some slack for the odd route that isn't already flown north of the river, that closing the STN base brings and also bolster the loads from those bases too.
