Ryanairs policy is to attempt to sit together however if not possible maximum row in front or behind although this is a very rare occurrence.

Yep, at easyjet we class a seat in front/behind (particularly aisle seat) as being sat together. It doesn't always satisfy the parent but in my book it is sat together and it would have no impact on a evacuation. Also advise parent to arrive at the gate earlier to be boarded first.

Like I've said before though, loads have to be circa 175 (320) and 151 (319) before you come across any issues.

Allocated seating is the way forward, apart from TLV flights. Whenever I have spoken to pax about it, most really do not want allocated seatting on a TLV.

I hate to admit it but the reserved seating on FR is now really working, it suppose it offers the best of both worlds allocated for those I want it free for the rest, and boarding times now not impacted.

I do think it seems more like the future for EZY to allocate to keep separating them in the market from FR.

Is there any news about this ?

7th or 8th aircraft for MAN?

easyflyer83, If you are in a position to do so please can you clarify whether MAN is likely to get 7 or 8 A/C for next summer? Its good news that EZY is looking at more business expansion. Thanks, DomyDom

Look at the reports at the extra aircraft for EDI and MAN:

"One hundred jobs could be brought to Edinburgh after Easyjet announced plans to base two more aircraft at the capital's airport."

"EasyJet boss Carolyn McCall today said the airline planned to increase its presence at Manchester Airport Ė starting with the creation of 120 jobs.
The budget carrier will base a new aircraft at its Manchester hub, which will come into operation from March."

Does it strike you odd that MAN gets 1 aircraft less but creates 20 jobs more? Think it's pretty much set for a further aircraft to be based on top of the one they've announced.

Thanks easyflyer83. Lets hope number 8 comes off but 7 is encouraging all the same. I agree MAN need to sort themselves out regarding getting planes off on time.

The delays aren't really noticeable to the average passenger as it tends to run to just a few mins but like I say, easy are very focused on OTP and it impacts on the stats I guess.

Are you able to hint that EasyJet will operate more destinations out of SEN next year, not necessary based A319s, because they can operate a W.schedule......but with the expansion on parking and terminal capacity at SEN right now, there surely must be something planned ahead!

Personally i think that SEN-NQY could be on the cards. The NQY-LON market has been dealt a big blow over the last few years due to Ryanscare, BA and Air Southwest all leaving the route.

I think its just a matter of time until Easyjet heads to NQY, they already use the long runway and clear airspace for training and the airport is in desperate need to attract new airlines and routes, rumor has it that they are willing to offer some decent incentives.

It's great news that EZY's base at SEN is performing so well, although I note easyflyer83's caveats. Logic says that SEN should work well with its train link to London and quite large local catchment. The opening of the airport hotel on 14th September should help. Spreading the word throughout Europe should attract more incomers, especially now it is an IATA approved London airport. Services to Germany, Denmark and eastern Europe should prove popular (although I'm not convinced by the OLT idea of serving Saarbrucken.....). Services to Cornwall could be viable, the rail service is long and often overcrowded. Hopefully EZY will announce such new services for next summer, although they may prefer to wait for the terminal extension to open for any major expansion. Part of SEN's appeal is its ease and speed of transit, it could become a victim of its own success if it expands too quickly. By 2015 I would hope to see 2 million ppa - especially if Osborne's double dip recession has ended.....

MAN and BHX would seem to contradict this report

My gut feeling is that some new destinations could be on the cards for SEN in 2013, but only on a w-pattern basis due to the current squeeze on terminal capacity between 0600 and 0730. Any additional based aircraft would obviously have departures scheduled during that period. I haven't yet seen a proposed completion date for the terminal extension, which will more than double its size.

Ignore jetstreamtechrecords - he doesn't let any opportunity to have a go at Flybe pass by, and this is just stirring the pot on his favourite topic. Pretty boring, really.
