Before deciding on Madrid as their latest base, Easyjet were negociating with Lyon on setting up a base there. While Lyon ultimately didn't get chosen as a base, they did win new 2 routes (Madrid and Rome).

So I would see Lyon as definitely being in the running as becoming an Easyjet base, especially now with Lyon's new super-low-cost-Marseille-style Terminal.

That would not surprise me neither, and the "Queen AIR FRANCE" will be even more pissed off
It seems to be still hard for easyjet to get more slots at Paris, because of (=who ???) Air France .... But we all hope this unfare monopoly will stop in the next future

What about routes to Corsica (= France) ? last year, easyjet was selling very competitive tickets from Paris to Ajaccio, everybody was interested in those new route, and suddenly.... The nightmare Air france came up again and asked easyjet to stop it ... and all the potential passengers were so sad

Will easyjet eventually fly there?

Perhaps you best ask the Eurocrats in Brussells who allow the monopolies to continue!!

They allowed the Ajaccio route to continue to have the "Public Service Obligation" status continue, therefore keeping prices high for Ajaccio residents!

Interesting to note that Easyjet has requested slots for a route EDI - MUC in summer 2007. None of the two is currently a base - does Easy do W-patterns? Flight number is EZY6919, if this is a hint.

Errr, stupid me. You are right, of course. I was confusing this with WW (which has requested slots at MUC from EMA).

Low-fare airline easyJet is to open an easyHotel in Budapest in spring. The easyHotel will be the third in Europe, easyJet founder Stelios Haji-Ioannou announced at a press conference in Budapest on Monday.

Except easyHotel is a completely seperate entity to easyJet. The only linkage is 'easy' and Stelios.

Just to clarify, as of today 192 Airbuses are on firm order or have been delivered.

The timeline runs:


120 Orders and 120 Options 30th Deb 2002

20 Options turned into Orders 22nd Dec 2005

52 Options turned into Orders Today
----
192 Orders used out of original 120 Orders + 120 Options
----

48 Options presumably still on the books but not seen an explicit reference.

75 New options announced.

Cheers

And an option to buy 75 A320 aircraft too.

Who knows, with all these cancellations, maybe Airbus will do a deal on a few A380s for those high density routes.

The 75 new Options announced are for A320 family aircraft - not specifically the A320 model.

I'd love to see some A318's operating in London City and some A321's operating some medium haul low cost routes. Doesn't mean it's going to happen though.

Cheers

The BBC report specifically stated 52 A319s on order and 75 options for A320s. This may not be the same as the official easyJet press release though.

The 52 Options converted into orders are for A319's. The 75 further Options are for any model of the A320 family, ie A318 to A321. The Options have always offered that flexibility.

Whilst there were tales of woe in the last pay negotiation the result was a 6% rise backdated and a 4% rise for this year granted in October alongside a raft of little tweaks for FOs pay. Shortly followed by agreeing to change the working pattern from 5 on 2 off, 5 on 4 off to 5 on 3 off, 5 on 4 off. We also go roster disruption payments included in the new deal.

Current negotiations seek to improve the roster pattern further.


Cheers

From Easy's presentation re its FY2006 results, it looks like most new aircraft in the FY to Sept 2007 are going to overseas bases. For UK bases, it seems only LGW & BRS are earmarked for more based aircraft, being 2 & 1 respectively.
