Thumbs up

As far as im aware, Allocated seating will be started on a dozen or so routes in about 5-6 weeks time... If proven as a success then it should be progressively rolled out from winter season.

Question about adding checked baggage to bookings

I have a quick question I was hopeing somebody here might be able to answer.

When flying easyJet I've taken to booking as many flights as possible at the same time in order to save a bit of money on booking fees etc (I never owned a Visa Electron so the new admin fee changes nothing as far as I'm concerned). On some flights I require checked baggage. On others I don't. Sometimes I'm not sure whether I need to check a bag in until a day or two before departure.

The problem I have is that the easyJet booking system does not let me select which specific flights to add checked bags to. I either have to add bags to all flights or to none of them. If I book flights with no checked baggage and try to add this option later, the system forces me to add bags to all of my flights, not just the ones which require it.

Have I missed something? Is there any way to add checked baggage to single flights without adding them to all flights in the booking I've made? I'm often abroad when I need to make this decision so calling a reservations number isn't really an option.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

You don't have to be an Easyjet expert to know! A quick search on their online timetable shows that the last Manchester - Zurich flight is on the 29th March

Exactly! I (obviously) never realised it was just a Winter Ski Route.

It wasn't, it has been year-round for a couple of years.

What with this and the Swiss MAN-BSL being dropped, there's going to be some unhappiness among the (quite large) northern British expat community in Switzerland!

Great expansion in Italy?
After a long silence, easyJet is to launch a new offensive on the Italian market. On the eve of the start of the summer, the low cost carrier will present the new plans on the Peninsula and in a press conference next week in Milan, which will be present, as well as country director Frances Ouseley Italy, the chief executive Carolyn McCall (pictured). Loose lips, for now, home of the company on the contents of news that will be presented, but the expectation is high, considering the presence of the CEO to the event. Meanwhile, easyJet continues the march, that even in the month of February has seen rising numbers with regard to passenger traffic. During the carrier has touched the threshold of 4 million pax, an increase of 3.7%, the load factor also increased, rising to 87, 6​​%. Over the 12 months between March 2011 and February 2012, however, the rate of growth is 9.5% of the pax, for a total of 55.6 million, about 5 in the previous year.

easyflyer83 - any chance you were crewing said ZRH-MAN route on Friday and we had a chat about this very same subject?

As a frequent "commuter" on this route (although not a weekly one as many of the others I've had the pleasure of travelling with), I can confirm that there is definitely some discontent about easyJet scrapping the route. Swiss were obviously very quick to jump on it though and promptly upped their prices by ca. CHF 50 over night "to make up for it"...

Here's to hoping the route does return for the winter and stays a permanent fixture thereafter. The flight has always been jam-packed whenever I've been on it (although granted those were typical commuter weekend flights).

Important! You need to add ID information to your booking
For security you need to provide details of the passport, or other suitable identification documents, you will be travelling with. This is needed by law for you and any accompanying passengers.
If you don't do this then you will not be allowed on the plane.
Suitable ID Documents
Last time I flew BA, it wasn't required on UK-Netherlands, is this new?

Hearing rumblings that LPL is to go down to 7 frames definitely, possibly 6, for winter 12/13.

Is this just a general drawdown, or is LPL's loss a gain for t'other field down the road?

During a brief recently it was said that EZY are to maintain the fleet size for 2 years while growing Gatwick and France. Those aircraft have to come from somewhere and it looks like the UK! So I guess LPL's loss will be someone else's gain! Other UK bases may find the same thing happening soon?

Although things might change, apparently it was also stated that EZY are looking at buying 2 LCC's so it all might be a rather different plan soon!?!?

Latest news regarding allocated seating:
"Allocated seating trial update
*
Last year we announced that we would be trialling allocated seating and we can now give you an update.
*
Our decision to trial allocated seating on selected routes was made because our customers said it is an important issue for them. Passengers have said they would like to know that they will be seated with their family. Others simply want to sit close to the door so that they can get off quickly when they arrive.
*
The trial
From mid-April, passengers making new bookings on allocated seating routes will be able to select a seat for an affordable fee.* If passengers decide not to select a seat we will automatically allocate one for them. All seats on these flights will be allocated and families and groups will be seated together wherever possible.
*
Flights will start later in April, initially on the following routes
*
·******** LTN-AGP-LTN and LTN-SSH-LTN
·******** LTN–SAW–LTN, LTN–ALC–LTN and GLA–ALC-GLA
*
It’s planned for the number of routes to increase during May. Passengers who already have flights booked on these routes are being contacted by email today to let them know they are on an allocated seating flight.*
*
Training and briefings have already started for Cabin Crew who will be most closely involved in the trial.
*
Throughout the trial there will be a big focus on gathering feedback from both our passengers and you and we look forward to hearing from you. You can give your feedback by emailing [email protected]."

Where was this stated, I have been looking round and can't find anything.

Liverpool Reductions

This is indeed true, the number of based aircraft at LPL will be reduced to seven for the winter season. Furthermore, due to ongoing discussions with the airport, it is unlikely that the two aircraft will return for the summer 2013 season...
