And will probably fly more European pax to/from the UK for the Olympics than BA will given that they fly to way more European destinations from LGW, STN, LTN and SEN than BA do from LHR Easyjet are a great British business success story so why wouldn't they want to be associated with what will hopefully be the biggest sporting event in Britain for years?

They may want to be associated with the Olympics, but if they made unauthorized use of the Olympics trademarks (the 2012 logo and/or the coloured rings), they would end up in court.

Er so what ?

If they wanted to get involved they could have paid like BA, Cadburys, Lloyds, P&G and others did years ago.

Any attempt at using Olympics symbols will find themselves in court quickly as the people who put the money up front did so because it was worth something to do so.

Why are everyone getting their boxers in a twist over a logo?
It's not happening, end of. Someone obviously saw G-EZEZ without the .COM which was now well over a week ago and put two and two together. It was always going to be BER related.

Around 1999 / 2000 at the height of the dot-com bubble, every company under the sun changed its name to add a ".com" suffix to its name in any advertising - it was deemed to somehow transform a company from being a bunch of old fashioned codgers into a go-ahead new age forward thinking bunch of visionaries.

Move on 12 years, and the Interweb is now completely ingrained into life in both Europe and the wider world - or at least everyone who's likely to fly with Easyjet. Very few companies now seem to make a major point of emphasising that they are a dot-com - it's become the standard sales channel replacing the phone and it's almost taken for granted by consumers.

If anything, the simpler a company's logo is, the more likely it is to get noticed by consumers. Do Easyjet therefore even *need* to put "easyJet.com" on their planes, when a simple "easyJet" would suffice and cause less clutter in the appearance of their aircraft to passengers or rival airlines ?

Good point. Most people would probably just type a company name in to Google rather than type a full web address anyway.

On 20 April, Easyjet announced a load of new routes with a promise they would go on sale "next week". I haven't checked them all but some of them (in particular those from Luxembourg and Turin) do not appear to be on sale yet.

Did the media team put out a press release before the company was ready or is somebody in Luton having 2nd thoughts on something ?

Have been using Easyjet out of Liverpool for the last couple of months on and off due to costs on a job being very tight, and have to say both airline and airport have performed very well for LOCO. I have used speedy boarding to gain extra leg room seats and Business lounge at the airport (it has just been moved and done up) and found experiance to be ok and would look to use again on short hops. Well done Easy crews and Liverpool airport for improving my view on LOCO as my last LOCO flight before this was with Ryanair and was not so good .

Well, you asked, so here's one that was announced today - Manchester-Basel, starts 1st October, operated by a MAN-based aircraft, 4 times weekly. Happy news for the many expats in Switzerland whose only option left was either going via London or paying through the nose for Zurich-Manchester with Swiss. Let's hope it works out.

Others are Basel-Brussels, Basel-Budapest, Basel-Santiago de Compostela, and Geneva-Seville (although the latter does not start until 2013; the rest start at the end of October 2012.)

MAN, BRU and BUD are all being dropped by Swiss from BSL from 21 May - looks like easyJet wasted no time getting in.

Swiss are dropping BRU - BSL but Brussels Airlines will start it the day after (route swap within the Star Alliance).

But are you saying that Easyjet will shortly annnounce Brussels to Basel?! Do you have a source you can reveal?

7th aircraft for MAN?

Can anyone please throw any light on the likelihood of a 7th aircraft at MAN for winter 2012? Thanks, DomDom

Rapidman, don't read much into the rumour you have heard. I've not heard it but remember that easyjet holidays is nothing like your Thomas cook or Thomson. Easy are first and foremost a scheduled airline and the holiday side is actually a 3rd party branded as easyjet holidays. It's basically dynamic packaging of easy flights with bed stock from low cost holidays group.

Look at the MAN timetable and it doesn't quite work out properly if there's just 6 aircraft based. Either more existing routes to be cut back or a 7th aircraft to be brought online. Why still show Zurich as an option to book ex-MAN when the service ceased at the end of the winter timetable unless they are planning to restore it?

easyflyer83, your anti LPL theme is yet again unfounded, just because you haven't heard the rumour about easyJet Holidays and LPL airport working together doesn't mean it's not true......
