easyflyer83,

Do you happen to know when or if any new EZY routes from MAN are likely to be released for 2012? Any hints would be much appreciated.

Thanks, DomyDom

Again, it works well at other airlines. Even on the bucket and spade routes, take up of this will not be 100% and I reckon on City routes less than half will elect to pay to choose a seat. All those remaining seats will then be pre-allocated in relation to particular bookings meaning, where ever possible, people will be sat together.

Thanks easyflyer83. That is reassuring, hopefully some more interesting routes on the cards. I'm pleased that things are continuing well for Easyjet and it's employees at MAN. Lets hope that it will continue. DomyDom

Easyjet at MAN

I really am concerned by this - especially in the context of the rise in APD! I think Easyjet have been great for Manchester and I really hope that they continue to grow and help MAN develop, however given their reluctance for whatever reason (late delivery of aircraft, can't get orgainised or whatever) to provide another aircraft and new routes to Manchester for summer 2012 I really worry that the relationship is taking a step backwards. I remember this time last year EZY's great expansion plans for 2012 for MAN were er - an extra flight to PMI ! For what ever reasons their plans (FR?) changed and they provided some greatly needed and appreciated profitable new routes such as SXF, MAD and BIO (yes I know we lost that great selection of a route HEL!). I hope EZY put on some new (interesting?) routes for 2012 however I fear that due to aircraft unavailability (again!)/ bizzare route selection that MAN will be dissapointed. I hope that I am proved wrong.

I think the decision has already been taken and Unit 7 will not arrive for the summer.

ZRH and MAH are no longer bookable from March and other changes have been made. The whole summer timetable which was based on 7 units has now been rejigged for six. That to me indicates that there has been a rethink.

the whole terminal move was because T3 was too small.
Not the sole reason for the move, there were other larger contributing factors such as increasing revenue from duty free in terminal 1. Also more space was needed so that Skyteam could be located under one roof.

Obviously lack of stands for an expansion in the near future was one of the deciding factors as you said!

Are Delta moving from T2 if they are consolidating Skyteam under one roof?

Not the sole reason maybe but the other two weren't larger contributing factors. Easy was having to bus one departure in the morning which isn't wanted on first wave departures as generally this wave sets the scene for later in the day and a huge emphasis is placed on this. Duty free/concessions has nothing to do with Easyjet and is the airports reasons for the move. Having Skyteam all in one place is way down the list.

Air France have announced 10 A320 to be based in Tolouse and add routes and increase current flights as well as adding routes from Nice to challenge Easyjet.

ďThe idea is to add the best practices of low-cost carriers, with the full services of Air France and attractive fares,Ē Juniac said at a press briefing in Toulouse.
J636, an interesting article about Air France plans to expand Toulouse base in opposition to EZY. I take the above statement from the article to be a mixed bag in terms of strategy. Feels like Debonair, low cost, low fares with legacy carrier service.

EZY will win this battle. AF have had it too good for too long, taking over small regional rivals and having relative protection from competitors at slot congested airports in France.

Hope so but no so sure as feel AF will use slot limitation and other "Govt" procedures to destroy any competition.

Thanks for the reply which is very much what I was expecting.

Despite the fact that EZY did confirm that unit 7 would arrive for the summer and would be starting new route(s) I think the position as it now seems to be is that this will not now happen.

Like wise I doubt that unit 7 will arrive in the Autumn if it doesn't arrive in summer and therefore summer 2013 is the likely arrival date. That doesn't mean that routes couldn't be started or operated from other bases.

Absolutely and W patterns, triangles and, to a lesser extent, nightstopping patterns are no stranger to the network so expect possible rejigging, adjustments and remember that GOT needs replacing unless those slots are being used for a frequency increase on other routes next Summer.

The timetable as it now is based on 6 Units based units is full there are no gaps that I can see.

To achieve this ZRH and MAH have been removed entirely. MUC has been reduced to 4 per week and other frequencies have been cut.

GVA and one BFS are done on non based Units

Can anyone confirm EZY plans for HAM next year? I fly there quite often on buiness (for Airbus) and with them being much cheaper then LH and forever cost cutting then these flights are great, except the afternoon MAN depature timing.

HAM is daily except Saturday so I have been told. Basically the same as this Summer and with a similar departure time.
