It is surprising that the Manchester-Madrid route should go from 3 airlines (Iberia, Easyjet and Ryanair) to none in a short period of time - even if Govt / airport tax rises 10 euros.

I recall a few years ago a similiar collapse occurred on the London-Nantes route. Shortly afterwards I think flybe reopened the route.

I would not be too surprised if next summer or in 2014 one carrier decides that with the other 2 players gone that it's worth restarting the route

Any news on expansion from BFS since EI are leaving? Possible canaries routes?

RE: MAN-MAD Easyjet. LPL-MAD is indeed well established and I'm sure at the time the decision was made, it was probably thought to protect the LPL service rather than battle it out with FR and IB (both of who have also now dropped the route). Curiously, Easyjet haven't yet informed passengers that the route isn't operating so who knows what they have planned. Things seem up in the air regarding MAD and it wouldn't surprise me if MAD made a return at some point, possibly with ZRH.

New routes for next year are looking increasingly like VCE, KEF and JMK. Nothing confirmed still but the first two routes come from directly from a most reliable source within the carrier.

Moscow also being evaluated from both LON and MAN. Yes I know they need to apply for rights but nevertheless it's being looked at.

If any route was to go from LPL, my money would be on BRU, the loads are shocking.

neil - you're not the only one to be pondering this topic. Easyjet, Ryanair, Wizzair, flyBE, Germanwings and Norwegian are all yet to release anything beyond the end of March

Think all airlines will be watching the economic and non economic conditions over next 6 months as factor in recessions across Europe, potential attack on Iran, US Presidential election economic impact plus a few others not thought off and everybody will be cautious before releasing too much.

Days of everybody booking a year in advance are over for the majority, though some people still wish to give the airlines money a year in advance.

I don't think easyjet has ever released summer schedule this early. Give it until September I think.

Come on easyJet give us a Bournemouth base!

Come on easyJet, this is long-overdue.

Venice, Rome, Nice, Amsterdam, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Belfast, Barcelona, Funchal,

The above are only a few suggestions that would be sure to occupy an aircraft or two.

Your Bournemouth-Geneva flight has been going strong now since 2005!

Shamrock, why would BOH become a base of all places? Despite that dont easyjet have a minimum if three aircraft at a base anyway?

I know EZY operates to BOH. They also operate to AMM and I don't see a base there either.

Actually, the last two winters it's been operated by EZY, using a STN crew operating a W pattern. Not sure about this year.

Thanks DH. Its a few years since I used it hence the confusion. (Should have stuck to my original message that it was part of a w pattern )

BOH - GVA is also operated by LPL aircraft (in the same way as LBA is). Always amusing to see the crews selling the liverpool echo newspapers to bournemouth passengers, rather confused!!
