Jersey.

Any idea why Easy dropped the Luton Jersey route of a couple of years ago? Thought it may be the flight time not long enough, but see they are doing it from Southend now.

I Would imagine that as soon as the Olympics have been and gone, so will the Jersey route!

It makes it all the more amusing when he brings all the really bad stereotypes to life?

Fastjet and flybe?

Whats all this about yet another fallout between the board and the Cypriot??

Any truth Fastjet.com ?? (possibly purchasing baby and renaming )????
Just a little update I found on this. It seems it is more like Stellios has his eyes on flybe. Article below:

It was blue skies all the way for Flybe as rumours from a City hangar suggested that Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou has the Exeter International Airport-based low cost regional airline on his radar.

Amid the turbulence elsewhere, the shares took off and touched 117p before closing 7p higher at 113p amid vague speculation the easyJet founder, who this week announced plans to set up a new discount airline called Fastjet, could possibly also buy Flybe currently valued at around £85m.

Broker Liberum Capital does not believe that Fastjet will pose a competitive threat to easyJet (9.5p cheaper at 344.25p) but if the aggressive Sir Stelios was to acquire Flybe and ‘bolt on’ a new business, Fastjet, that would certainly put the cat amongst the pigeons.

Sir Stelios’s move to set up Fastjet came a week after easyJet announced its first ever dividend to shareholders – worth £190m – with a mouthwatering £72m going to Sir Stelios who still owns 38 per cent of the equity.

He could easily part-finance a bid for Flybe which is trading 62 per cent below its December 2010 flotation price of 295p. But he would have a huge job persuading Flybe’s major shareholders to sell. A trust of the late Jack Walker, Blackburn Rovers’ former owner, holds a 48 per cent stake via Rosedale Aviation Holdings, while International Consolidated Airlines, the Anglo-Spanish holding company formed following the merger of BA and Iberia, owns 14.6 per cent.

My thoughts exactly. A cheap and amateurish ad IMO.

I'm not being biased here (Easyjet's attempt at a TV ad earlier this year was abismal) but that, and the others of the same batch, are actually quite good IMO. Those of you wishing/hoping for a BA style ad will always be disappointed. Easyjet always competes on price and the ad's convey that aswell as the reason which we travel. The "photo" nature of the ad is purely intentional and has nothing to do with being cheap. Infact, some of the crew's own "where are you going?" style photo's maybe included on later versions.

The tv ad from earlier this year which i mentioned, the one narrated by Dave Lamb (of Come dine with Me fame), was acknowledged as being crap by Easyjet. The ironic thing is that during the weekend the ad was broadcast was one of Easyjet's busiest days for bookings since it began in 1995. Perhaps an indication that it doesn't matter how good the ad is, you need to get that message across.

The ad campaign on TV starts on Wednesday evening.

It tells you why you fly, but not why you fly easyJet. Doesn't look terribly effective to me.

Still got you talking about it though didn't it.....! I actually quite like it to be honest, but I am certainly not a marketing guru or expert! I like the simplicity (probably why I like it....my mum always tells me I am a bit simple!!).

Fly with easyJet to see loved ones, for business or to party! It says why you fly, but not explicitly that you must do that with easyJet granted. Although the implication is certainly there as the brand is repeatedly shown!! However so many people already do (more than the to fly to serve airline) maybe that message is less important. Who knows, but I like it anyway.
