Yes but easyJet only started bying their B737NGs only in 2000 or 2001. I'm not sure if I'm right?

They shouldn't be selling them at the moment they should make a new base or something, and operate the B737NGs from there, and not Airbuses to keep mantenince costs down.

But I have to agree with Flyingphil on the first post they will enjoy the Airbuses beautiful a/c especially the A320.

Don't think thats overly relevant. Easy have massive London bases at LGW and LTN as well remember, something Ryanair doesn't.

I wouldn't recommend any potential buyers to spunk any cash on the NG that had the argument with a "lampost" in AMS a while back. Can't remember the reg. off hand but you will know if your airline buys it as it does a very convincing impression of a crab once it gets airbourne.

How can we think about opening new bases when we cant crew the ones we already have !!!

At the rate senior management is going we will be lucky if there is anything left to fly....lets hope someone pulls it all back together at the top end.
