I don't understand this?

Under European Law, if a passenger turns up at the airport and his flight is cancelled the passenger is entitled to upto EUR250 for shorter sectors (much of easyJet's network). The airline is not liable to this pay out if they cancel the flight more than 7 days in advance and offer a re-route. So if so many flights were cancelled so far in advance why not notify the passengers?

Some are having to be cancelled at less than 24 hours notice. I had one of my flights cancelled earlier this week, and I only knew when I turned up at base that it wasn't runnng.

And re: outofsynch 'farewell Fat Mike' comment, I think quite a few people will substitute farewell for something slightly more vulger.

Let's hope the replacement for Fat Mike is able to improve things PDQ as I am fed up of apologising to pax for late flights and cancelled flights

My flight EZY2230 ALC LTN was cancelled on Monday evening, we were re-routed ALC EMA the next day.

It is so true that the "operational reasons" is the perfect catch all for airlines to avoid paying out EUR250 compensation under European regulations.

If any EZY crew know - exactly why was EZY2230 cancelled?

I have spoken to Customer Services and of course they said that the reason my flight was cancelled does not entitle me to compensation. When asked what the reason was it was the expected "Operational reasons schmeasons!"

How can we know when we are entitled to claim, and that the airline is not just avoiding a payout?

Suggest you take them to the Small Claims Court and sue them for breach of contract/ misrepresentation.

It would appear that they don't have enough crews for their operation and the chief operating officer has just been sacked!

Need I say more?

Grrr

With recent poor punctuality, mass regular cancellations and expensive 'subbing', this is hardly an issue currently for OrangeJet!

Well, despite all the doom and gloom and inconvenience through cancellations to some customers, including me, easyJet has just presented an extremely encouraging quarterly report, so good that their shares are up over 9% at the time of writing.

For the three months from April to June, unit revenue (total revenue per seat flown) was up 17% compared with the previous year, although the timing of Easter did help.

Future growth in passenger seat and ancillary seat revenue is expected to the extent that pre-tax profit growth for the full year is now estimated at 40% to 50% instead of the earlier predicted 10% to 15%.

The airline does admit sub-chartering a limited number of aircraft on a short-term basis, but there is no mention of the large number of cancelled flights.

Shareholders are happy even if some pax aren't.

easyJet will be announcing new base at Bournemouth from Spring 2007 later this year. initially two A319's operating to Nice, Edinburgh, Belfast, Berlin, Murcia & Paris. Geneva operated by easyJet Switzerland. Hopefully crew shortages will have been sorted by then.

Limited amount of Subbing......a few cancellations........

Erm over 600 flights canx and FlyGlobeSpan, EireJet, Titan, Futura, Air Finland are some of the airlines that they have got doing the flights for the summer season.

Better not tell the shareholders about the bill we are about to foot!!!

What is going on with easyJet? They have again cancelled lots of STN flights today. Bearing in mind its July, they have cancelled lots including Alicante and Almeria. A lot of angry pax at STN today.

Madrid - Lanzarote

The website has news item from a few days ago saying that Easyjet have requested slots to fly between Madrid and Lanzarote.

http://www.canarias7.es/articulo.cfm?Id=30197
"Otra empresa, Easy Jet, tiene hasta el 31 de agosto se para confirmar el inicio de operaciones entre Madrid y Lanzarote, uno de los aeropuertos más baratos de las Islas para aterrizar y despegar."

Could Easyjet be planning to break into the Canary Island market?

Madrid - Asturias

This news article from a couple of weeks ago suggests that Easyjet is planning a significant increase in its Spanish operations.

http://www.lne.es/secciones/noticia....Noticia=417571

It also remarks that the airline has applied for slots to fly between Madrid and Asturias.

The Spanish domestic market is really hotting up then! Vueling are providing some welcome competition to Iberia / Air Nostrum. Ryanair are interested in launching Madrid to Granada and now it looks like Easyjet are muscling in on the market too!

What is your source for this information? Bournemouth is close to both Bristol and Gatwick, two of easyJet's largest bases. Would seem a strange choice for a new base.
