A few days ago I was talking to manager of one of the ground handling company's in Dublin and they said that EZY were considering returning to DUB with flights to Basel. Personally think its highly un lightly but what would be the chances if it was to happon. He did say a 4 weekly service possibly from December.

Did you mean easyjet considering return to the republic of Ireland rather than Dublin, as they never did fly to Dublin on Schedule (only came in from maintenance).

If any route to Southend is viable it has to be Dublin, given that the other London routes to Dublin are some of the busiest routes from the respective airports in terms of frequency and passenger numbers.

If Ryanair's 738 is definately too big for Southend operations Easyjet should do it, this is there golden opportunity to put Dublin on the map and at the same time have a certain protection from Ryanair coming on to it.

JSCL- yes you are correct there, but if Easyjet mentioned that they were serious about Southend/Dublin Aer Arann Regional would knock that on the head straight away I would say.

Aer Arann were supposed to do SEN - AMS. Don't see a base being announced . SEN have got EZY now and they wont care about RE now as EZY can delver a lot more passengers than Aer Arann.

Aer Arann would not be able to compete on London - Dublin market in terms of cost. All other carriers could offer cheaper fares than they would.

Would be great if EZY stated SEN - DUB.

I wouldn't bet on it!! True - the easyJet base is one hell of a coup for Stobart, but after having invested 2.5 million euro into Aer Arann last year, they sure as hell aren't going to ignore any further opportunities that RE might bring. I'd expect 2 or 3 x daily DUB-SEN soon.

EZY were considering returning to DUB with flights to Basel.
Ryaniar started a fares firestorm when EZY launched LGW-SNN / ORK / NOC as they saw it as an attack on their home turf when much of their profits came from UK-Ireland. easyJet Switzerland (EZS) isn't really on the same hot potato if they were to luianch BSL-DUB, however if EZY launched DUB-SEN all that would happen is FR would kick off another fares war on STN-DUB. It's not a business thing, it's kind personal.

Opening BER on 3rd June 2012

As this is a EZY station: Some more details now on the opening of BER (please use your prefered auto-translator):

Probelauf: Tausende Freiwillige testen neuen Flughafen in Schönefeld - Berlin - Tagesspiegel

So all of TXL will have moved, the last stage during the night of 2nd to 3rd June 2012. Including fire-engines, so no plane can take-off anymore at TXL then. Not so clear about operations at the old SXF terminal. E.g. EZY SXF-LTN is bookable for 3rd June 2012, but will it be the old or the new terminal ? That might cause some confusion. You can get from one to the other by S-Bahn, but it takes a while (25min incl walking ?). One might think that they will still use the current SXF terminal, as getting all of the former TXL operations working at BER is tricky enough. ATC surely then will be already have moved to the BER tower (or is it even there already ?).
Speaking of ATC: Germany's ATC union is still threatening a strike (which was prohibited by a court last Thursday), the issues are far from resolved.

Hello. Can anybody tell me how many aircraft easyJet have based at each airport for the summer 2011 season? Also, any rumours regarding new bases for next year would be much appreciated? BCN, CPH and AMS have all been mentioned before, but which one is the most likely open after Southend and LIS?

thanks

Speedy boarding ?

Sorry just a quick question on speedy boarding...
I have friends traveling from MAN to PMI, they are a family of x4, 2 adults and 2 children ... My question is, do they need to buy 4x speedy boarding or just 1 or 2 for the adults ???

If the children are younger than 13 then the group will be in the first set of boarders and the party would not need SB.

Looking at the official wording below it depends on one of the children being 5, not 13, and under.

'We board you in the following order:-

Speedy Boarding - Speedy Boarding passengers and easyJetPlus! cardholders

Special Assistance - Passengers needing special assistance, elderly passengers, up to two adult passengers travelling with a child aged 5 or under and other members of their party up to the age of 13

Group 2 - All remaining passengers'

When are they travelling?

As DWLPL says they should be eligible for SA boarding which boards after SB. Either way, flights need to be over 95% full before any "seating together" issues arise and then it only tends to be the last few passengers to board that are affected.

Thanks for this!

Just one thing: The LTN nightstop isn't at DRS, it is at DTM.

Because they didn't pay for Speedy Boarding and don't qualify for Special Assistance - i.e. everyone else is in boarding group 2.
