But it's not going to lead to a charter esque operation that some on the forum are getting exciting about because that isn't what easyjet holidays are about.
I didnt say it would.

It all goes back to the GB airways purchase, before then they were only South Terminal. I personally think some major re-organising needs to be done to each terminal with the South being primarily Low-cost/Charter/Minor airlines and the North as Full-service/regional airlines. This could also help Gatwick to improve its appeal to fussy Business pax as they would not have to worry about sharing a terminal with horrible, evil holidaymakers!!

It's even simpler. They're too big to fit into the one as they have so many over nighting aircraft.

Thanks adfly and Skipness One Echo, makes sense now!

Interesting idea, adfly, it would be a big upheaval for VS and BE to shift from LGW-south (looking at a map, shouldn't that be EAST?!) to LGW-north.

Wouldn't it be a lot easier if the terminals were simply LGW-1 and LGW-2?

Well the North Terminal is to the North of the SouthTerminal so seems OK I think.
Virgin don't want to have to move the Clubhouse as it would be rather pricey. There is/was an exisiting strategy to get the long haul carriers into the North Terminal to make use of all the space BA no longer use. Continental and NWA both moved across following Thomsonfly to join First Choice, leaving Virgin and USAirways. I think they stopped this after both CO and NW left soon after their moves....
It's a bit of a mish mash but not unworkable.

This could also help Gatwick to improve its appeal to fussy Business pax as they would not have to worry about sharing a terminal with horrible, evil holidaymakers!!
Remember BA Gatwick focusses on holidaymakers.

To be fair, frequent schedules ex LGW to many of Europes major Cities make EZY quite a popular choice for business passengers. What you have to remember is that businessmen aren't always execs and they aren't always suited and booted. Lots of technical staff, shop floor personnel etc etc travel on business.

There is also a gross stereotype of the business passenger. From experience they are generally easy to please. Most aren't pre-madonnas, they generally get on, sit down and don't give you any trouble. Generally polite aswell. As much as I like holiday flights, the city routes are actually quite easy for crew.

As for the terminals themselves, some people like to nicely box certain airlines into certain terminals. In essence that doesn't tend to achieve anything. It's no good grouping airlines together if one terminal becomes dead late afternoon whilst the other is having capacity issues.

Specifically easyjet, I think the operation at LGW might just be too big for just one terminal.

BBC News - EasyJet and Belfast International Airport respond to report

It doesn't make for good reading but thankfully Easyjet had the luck with them.

Hmm "emergency Landing" or just a diversion?

An easyJet flight made an emergency landing after a mid-air fight on board.
I very much doubt that the Captain declared an "emergency" to just make a "diversion" into LGW to off-load a pair of chavs!!

The Captain did declare a PAN, though.
The little scumbags had managed to polish off a bottle of Southern Comfort, between them, in the space of about 30 mins.
The crew were really left with no choice but to divert.

If there was a no fly list that would impact on our revenue stream as most passengers expect a champagne service on beer money. Some are just the scum of earth.

However they behave on the aircraft as they behave at home so there is no hope for them or their offspring.

Nonsense, absolute nonsense in my opinion.
