Do you have any news about new aircraft will be base in MXP?

can't see such a large expansion happeninng out of such a small base as BFS, certainly if there are no a/c available. Any future expansion is going to have to come from greater utilisation of existing a/c (hard to imagine much slack in EZYs operation in this regard) or "flying in" a/c from other bases.

Possible but how likely?

easyjet random loading

Hello
Sorry if this has gone before, it is my first message.
Aircraft weight and balance I understand, but easyjet (europe) load people at randon, sometimes the planes are half full.
How does the weight and balance formula work when there is no apparent knowledge of who sits where, whether female, male or child, eampty seat not the individuals weight, let alone the people that change seats or spread accross 2 or 3 seats when planes are almost empty.

many thanks to you all

with a/c such as the 73 aor a319 the weight and balance isnt such an issue, and an a/c is rarely out of trim. passengers will more than likely spread themselves troughout the plane anyway - some sit near front to get off quickly, some like the exit rows over the wings, and other like being at the back so they can go to the toilet without people watching. also, ezy operate at fairly high load factors - 70%+ and unless eveyone sits right at the back then the a/c is unliekly to be out of trim! checkin agents rarely seat people according to a trim spec anyway so all seating is essentially random from a weight balacne point of view!

It is one of the responsibilities of the cabin crew to ensure their is an even distribution of passengers throughout the cabin.

easyjet making moves...

Major new easyJet aircraft order
easyJet EXERCISES OPTIONS OVER 52 AIRBUS 319 AIRCRAFT
SECURES OPTIONS OVER A FURTHER 75 A320 FAMILY AIRCRAFT
104 AIRCRAFT NOW ON FIRM ORDER WORTH OVER $4 BILLION


Good news all round. They will be in constant recruitment for years to come as their current aircraft orders are still arriving, not to mention this cheeky purchase.

New Route

NEW route from Edinburgh to Munich

easyJet, Europe's leading low-fares airline, today announced it would be bringing more low-fares to Scotland by adding a new direct European route from Edinburgh. The daily service to Munich will bring the total number of destinations served by easyJet from its Edinburgh base to nine, with an overall capacity increase of 5%.The airline expects to carry almost 100,000 passengers on this route in the first 12 months.Earlier this year easyJet converted its bases at Edinburgh and Glasgow to solely Airbus operations, replacing the current fleet of Boeing 737 aircraft with brand new Airbus 319s. This move, together with the expansion of its Glasgow operations earlier this year, reflects easyJet’s continued commitment to its future in Scotland.
David Osborne, easyJet UK General Manager Commercial, commented:
“easyJet is thrilled to be bringing this direct new route from Edinburgh to Munich. The German city is an important business centre as well as a historic and cultural city, ideal for business passengers and for weekend breaks. This direct route is not only advantageous for Scots on business and leisure but will also bring economic benefit to Scotland by bringing German tourists to the region.
This new route is the first step in easyJet’s expansion plans for Edinburgh in 2007 and we look forward to announcing more new routes in the coming weeks.”



"This new route is the first step in easyJet’s expansion plans for Edinburgh in 2007 and we look forward to announcing more new routes in the coming weeks.”

Seems a bit like what we heard when Belfast-Krakow, and we're still waiting........

From easy's website:

We are releasing our summer flights
so now is the perfect opportunity to plan a visit to some of the new destinations that we will be flying to!

Have a quick read of the info below offering some key reasons on why you should definitely visit all these great new destinations this year:

Departing from London Gatwick

Pisa
Famous for its Leaning Tower, but also the gateway to Tuscany and a perfect place from which to visit the beautiful town of Florence.

Sicily
Home to the tallest volcano in Europe, Mount Etna, as well as the legendary home of the Mafia, this place is bursting with architecture, stunning scenery and of course stunning food!

Krakow (flights commencing September 2007)
The oldest and largest city in Poland, Krakow is considered by many to be Poland’s capital of culture. It also boasts a very lively nightlife, so a perfect destination to visit whatever mood you’re in!

Fez (flights commencing September 2007)
The third largest city in Morocco, it is one of the four so-called "imperial cities". Fez is separated into three parts, Fez el Bali (the old, walled city), Fez-Jdid (new Fez, home of the Mellah), and the Ville Nouvelle (the French-created, newest section of Fez).

Departing from London Luton

Ibiza
Legendary for its world class summer clubbing scene, Ibiza is also a popular choice of destination for the rich and famous, many of whom own a house on the island. A great year-round destination, you can party all night and relax all day!

Departing from Bristol

Bordeaux
Known as the world's wine capital Bordeaux wine draws its name from the city around which it has been produced since the 8th century. The city also hosts the wine industry's biggest event worldwide: Vinexpo. So what could be better a weeks holiday with the world’s best wine!

Departing from Edinburgh

Munich
A popular destination and often referred to as Germany’s secret capital. This city is steeped in culture from art galleries to architecture – but if culture’s not your thing, you can always look forward to the legendary Munich beer festival instead!

Departing from Belfast

Krakow
The oldest and largest city in Poland, Krakow is considered by many to be Poland’s capital of culture. It also boasts a very lively nightlife, so a perfect destination to visit whatever mood you’re in!

Departing from Newcastle

Krakow
The oldest and largest city in Poland, Kraków is considered by many to be Poland’s capital of culture. It also boasts a very lively nightlife, so a perfect destination to visit whatever mood you’re in!

Mahon
The capital of Minorca, this is perhaps the lesser known of the Ballearic Islands. A great place to visit all year round, this place is definitely consideration if a quiet relaxing holiday is what you had in mind.

My apologies if this has been discussed into the ground on a previous incarnation of this thread.

I have not used EZy for six months and just looking to book now, I have just noticed that they are oferring the £5 priority boarding thing.

How long have they had this and how is it going? Looks like LGW first?

Thanks.

Speedy boarding

PAXBOY

It works as long as the aircraft at Gatwick is not out on the west park and on a jetty . All that happens then is you get on the bus first !!!
Dont know when you are going but during the summer at least 6 Easy flights a day first wave stuck out there .
After that most get a gate from 12:00 onwards

No pattern to which flights are out on the West park either all down to what they allocate to that particular aircraft overnight

Bagmanlgw Thanks for that, will probably be going out from LTN, which is my local field.

Are many people taking this up?
Did EZY start this after RYR?
When RYR announced this, discussion in here suggested that so many would take it up that it would be almost pointless.
What about families? There was enraged debate in SLF forum about RYR not giving priority to families sitting together.

easyJet started this before Ryanair and it is available to just the first 20 pax per flight.

Once at the gate, customers will be boarded according to priority;
• Wheelchair passengers and convicts
• Speedy Boarders (SBs)
• Pre-boards (PBs)
• Boarding group A
• Boarding group B
• Boarding group C
• Boarding group D
