I think that the plan is for them to remain until atleast the end of 2010. There are now 11 EZT* in the fleet compared to the five ex GB examples. The TTO* are now all LGW based however.

In addition not all of the G-EZT* are UK-based - there is at least one at both CDG and ORY, for example. That said, all the recent EZT* deliveries appear to be to LGW.

According to Virgin engineers who service the old GB A320 planes say that 2 or 3 are leaving this OCT and the rest in MAR 2010 as leases are ending.

Could someone please tell me the likely effects of easyJet's baggage handlers' strike which is apparently starting tomorrow? I can't find anything in Latest News on the easyJet website.

What is expected? Cancellations, or just delays while managers do the work instead? Will the hand baggage rules be relaxed?

I'm meeting someone of an EZY at Liverpool tomorrow afternoon, so some advance info would be useful to me and probably 10,000 others.

Thanks,
Bob

I operated a TFS flight at the weekend during a strike and it wasn't even apparent that there was a strike. So there's your answer. Please also remember that this action is only being taken at the airline's self handling stations in Spain and these stations are very few......limited to IBZ, PMI, TFS, ALC and one or two others.

Thanks, but are you sure? I thought that this dispute was specifically at Liverpool, as per the local press reports.

If the strike does go ahead (there is a vote to be done in the meantime) then it will not affect EZY as its uses a different agent.

David1994, how do you know it changes to a 319??? I was not aware that the airline announced what type of AC were operating?

It is however, not unusual for some 319s to do W patterns through BFS enroute to say Nice or Malaga in which case you could be on a 319 from mainland Europe to BFS or VV. The morning Bristol aircraft has done this and also the morning Belfast Bristol 737 will do the same going in the opposite direction. I think it was BFS AGP BRS BFS and the 319 doing BRS BFS AGP BRS.

May stand to be corrected!!!
I also do note that the BFS ALC Times have changed for the winter, as I use this route quite often myself. It used to be a 0600 departure now its 0730 most days and in winter it will usually go at 1045 am.

Sorry, I was referring to the industrial action taken by Easyjet's inhouse handling agent that operate at several Spanish stations.

there will be 5 base aircraft at BFS during the winter, a 737 will leave as a 319 arrives....

first one is rumored for December time and the conversion completed by May 2010..

theres lots of rotations that EZY are missing out on this winter, they've kept the FAO down to 2x a week, they could easily fill 3 or 4, same with KRK, they could fill 4 or 5 instead of the 3 they have scheduled

on sundays you will find the inbound AGP and NCE coming in as A319's

i am shocked that next spring EZY is putting the 0700 LPL flight back on, despite poor PAX numbers on the flight at that time

also theres a rumor of a new route next year, probably another sun destination

it is one of EZY's most popular routes (BFS-LPL) hence the 5/6 flights a day depending on the day of the week, but the 0700 departure usually heads out with an average of 60 PAX
