380 Fantasies

The airport said quite clearly at the time when it published the latest master plan that they have no intention to develop facilities for ULA's, and the only way I can see that happening is if EK were to pay for it, so could we please put it to bed, if you want to see big planes them I'm told MAN has a pretty good viewing area.

RE ATH, given the current financial situation in Greece I doubt that's even a remote possibility, even with a LCC right now, IST On the other hand I think would have more of a chance, although I'd imagine the top brass's main priority rests with trying to get United to stick around.

777s going from CDG or AMS to the Far East don't need to stop as those airports have longer runways than NCL, therefore they can take off with a higher fuel load.

Using the United flight to attract more routes may suggest chasing Star Alliance airlines.

Common sense (what might have a small chance of working) would suggest Lufthansa, or maybe attempting to increase BRU. Although some on here would expect Auckland direct with Air New Zealand

The success of UA in 2016 and any increase to year round will depend on targeted marketing of those OneWorld and Skyteam status members who currently fly frequently to the USA via Heathrow and Amsterdam. Deals involving keeping status if joining Mileage Plus, credit card offers offering big mileage bonuses, etc. those people need an incentive to change allegiance.

Also at the same time Jet2 are to drop Rome and Vueling replace them

Easyjet / jet2

I wouldnt be suprised to see Easyjet dropping Nice.
Easyjet arent really doing city routes anymore from NCL.

If Jet2 took over the route i could see them making a better go at it.
However they dont really do alot of italian routes like they used to


Vueling i can see them adding more routes before they start flying from ncl in march.

Rome could be as its a vueling base but we never know

Think someone is messing around with it BUT thinks do appear there first at times..

Jet2 has Rome on sale still so I doubt it

Vueling is offering Rome as a connection via BCN...

Is it not that easyjet have only put flights on sale till end of June.


I know that easyjet as looking at some new routes for Newcastle

Has someone been giving out free happy pills on this thread?? We have the dream routes, the A380 bit, the why can't a B777 fly to far east as it can from AMS and now Nice is part of Italy!!!
I don't add much these days, be adding even less with current trend!!

Might Easyjet eventually get squeezed out?

Here we go again !!

And even better :-

Really ? Maybe it's just me, but I don't see that hopping around Europe in a 733 that is potentially older than a Ford Capri as progress.
One redeeming factor is I suppose that they are to go down the RYR road of leasing a new fleet of 738's...it can't come too soon, bring it on !

EasyJet Nice etc...

I think someone's just messing about on Wiki.....

Nice is popular as a City and Beach destination... and growing with easy links to Monaco, Cannes, Antibes/Juan-les-Pins, and St, Tropez within 1 - 2 hrs from Nice Airport from 1.60 BY COACH!

Who knows about NCE and U2. However I would bet a tenner the person who did that on wiki is a fan of Jet2 and the type that they fly. People need to realise that spreading sh-t merely for your airline fantasy w-nk bank is risking people's livelihoods. Think before you go changing wiki/posting on social media. Buy Airline Tycoon. But keep the nonsense to yourself.

Easyjet...


Easyjet won't be leaving NCL..

It will however change its routes and maybe add new ones as they try and make as much money as possible.

Easyjet only have 6 aircraft due to be delivered until the end of next year so expect changes to the network to ensure the best returns possible.

We all know people have jobs and rumours of leaving will upset the crew.

I have heard from workers themselves that Easyjet are in talks with airport about adding new routes however it maybe at the cost of some already served routes hence the rumours of jet2 taking over some.

And before someone says it wasn't me that changed it

The Ignore List option is a very useful feature. However, the NCL thread on my screen now shows lines and lines of "this message is hidden because xxxx is on your ignore list".

and now it's starting to happen on the Jet2 thread as well!

Don't some people like to act all high and mighty and attempt to poke fun at others, though never very successfully.


Yes, I asked about 777s going direct from NCL to Asia when they can from AMS and CDG because, as someone not involved in the business, it seemed a sensible question.

Jensdad managed to give a polite and sensible answer. Thank you to him.

It's a pity so many others here try to pretend they are so superior and know it all (even when subsequent events show them to be wrong).
