Well as we already fly into BOH and the flights seem to be going ok why not base 2 a/c?

On the face of it yes it does seem strange, but after the Geneva trial proved that passengers were not 'canibalised' from either BRS or LGW, the decision was made to consider more substantial operations from the airport. This has been given priority status because the yield at BOH is considered to be lucrative.

BRS pax do not leak a great deal of passengers to BOH, and BOH potential pax leak more to LHR and SOU. (both very high yeilding airports)

of course it would be stupid of me to list my sources!

There wont be any new UK bases in foreseeable future. Spain perhaps, in the winter. BOH may get more services, but it wont be a base.

Bagmanlgw

And whether there is any chance of Easyjet taking over the defunct BA LGW-MUC service?

Latest news is that Easyjet are interested in launching a Madrid - Bilbao service.
http://actualidad.terra.es/provincia...rid_986427.htm

and also a Madrid - Tenerife North
http://www.expansion.com/edicion/exp...lo/662150.html

This news follows indications earlier this month that they applied for slots on two other domestic Spanish routes:
Madrid - Asturias
Madrid - Lanzarote

Anybody else have info on an Easyjet base in Madrid?
I'm surprised by their tactics tough of muscling in on the Spanish domestic
market but if there's money to be made...

An increased Easyjet presence in Spain (reported to be to the scale of 135% for the coming winter) may shake up the likes of Iberia, and force them into a Aerlingus / SAS style remodelling! (How many strikes would we have to endure during that process though). Try buying a one way ticket with Iberia. It'll cost 10 times the regular return fare. When are the likes of Iberia and BA going to learn that oneway ticketing can only be advantageous!

PS - I can't see any airlines rushing to open routes to Tel Aviv with the current situation

Ireland needs you!

Please come back to Ireland Easyjet.

It only materialised a few days ago that Easyjet were leaving Ireland and already Ryanair are axing Shannon - Luton, and Knock - Gatwick

Wow - seems Madrid is in everyones sights with FR and EZY applying for slot, as well as Vueling (how hard is that for an English native to pronounce!? Been informed by my Spanish friend that it is "Boo' el-ing" - still a nonses name even with a Spanish Accent!)

Is the new runway and Terminal fully in use at Barajas?

Clickair (Catair) are said to be basing at El Prat - where is that exactly? South of Madrid? Kinda like LGW is to London??

El Prat de Llobregat is the town beside Barcelona international airport. Nothing to do with Madrid.

Not very hard to pronounce, really, unless you have some sort of speech impediment. Try "voo'elling" as an approximation. In Spanish the letter "v" is pronounced as "b" as you will have gathered from your Spanish friend if he/she isn't still laughing at your pronunciation.

Given that "vuelo" means "I fly" or "flight" in Spanish, it doesn't seem a nonsense (or even a "nonses" ) name to me - on the contrary, seems perfectly reasonable.

...and they do it - EZY phases out 737NG's as well

Hi Folks,


just for your information:
Those of you sitting in older 737s might get good 2nd Hands soon.
Easyjet will phase out its 737NGs as well, which consists presently of 32 exemplares.
And there are 4 remaining classics as well that will go to BMIbaby and Virg Nigeria soon.

This information is especially important for those of you working for GOL which already signed contracts and JET AIRWAYS which seems to be very interested to pick some up over the next two years.


PS for all the Easy-Guys out here:
The Airbus is a lovely plane you will n'joy the change

And your information comes from where?

I'm sure we'll be all Airbus eventually, but as we need every new Airbus AND all the existing NGs to meet current expansion plans, it will probably be later rather than sooner.

by the time Easy gets rid of its NG's the Airbus will be old technology. The commercial department is well behind the game at the minute. They turn their attention to LPL AFTER Ryanair nip in with loads of routes. They turn their attention to GLA and EDI AFTER Globespan have nicked the no-brainers. I predict a similar situation in BFS. Never a great idea to bite the hand that feeds you. Commercial take note.

Grrr

You can add Luton to this list after Ryanair massively increased their capacity.
