Finally! Only about 10 years late to the party!

I bet we do see it at some point, anyone can see they're going to end up with more than 30 of them, I bet they end up making up about 50% of the fleet. Natural progression to go for the larger aircraft, who knows, EZY might even flirt with the A321LR one day?

As of this minute, our 2 current A319's will evolve into 2, 186 seat A320/A320neo, however I hope that doesn't happen. I'd much rather see them turn into 3/4 Cseries, with an A320neo for the summer beach shuttles. Fingers crossed!

Aren't most of EZY flights ex NCL summer beach shuttles with some short sectors to maximise utilisation? Today EZY have deps. to BFS (x3!), BRS, AGP, PMI, FAO, BCN - which routes do you think are suitable for the C Series?

The Cseries could do everything the A319's do today, more efficiently, so hopefully more based aircraft and more routes could end up happening (maybe, one day, in my dreams, I hope)

Your example today, in a perfect world, we might see Bristol and Belfast go back to their old, real, useful schedules 2/3 daily, a London route could become feasible again, say 2/3 to Stansted. Berlin, Geneva, Nice, Jersey, Split would be good contenders.

In terms of new routes, Milan, Venice, Budapest, Amsterdam, Paris, Hamburg, Reykjavik, Marrakech could all be feasible additions with next gen, fuel efficient aircraft... All we need now is for someone to buy them, and easyjet has expressed a lot of interest.

3 CS100
1/2 A320neo
1 A321neo (perhaps seasonal)

Would be fantastic 10 years down the line IMO, and I don't think it's necessarily that unattainable

Paris isn't that strong (with AF) so I'm not surprised really, rather expensive at times, but I'm in full support if it keeps us 3 daily

CityJet are now offering twice daily flights to Amsterdam Dep 0930 and 1730 with their own flight numbers but both flights are the same timings as the KLM offering so I presume they must be code share.

The 2016 Brussels figures were affected by the attack at the airport, so not really...

Still absolutely right about Dusseldorf, which seems to be performing strongly

Interesting that David Laws has went to become the Chief executive of Leeds Bradford, that's two ex Chief Execs who have gone down to Leeds after Newcastle.

Fares have been extremely competitive on that route, especially if transferring via DUS rather than direct traffic. I paid about £70 for NCL-DUS-ARN one way about a month ago. On the same day, NCL-DUS direct was £80 one way.

North East sunseekers have been handed even more choice as a bevvy of new routes have been announced from Newcastle Airport;

Rather misleading headline, when you read article - (Comments section following article sums up!):

France, Italy and Egypt - the latest flights announced at Newcastle Airport - Chronicle Live
