There was an "oil leak" problem on a based A319 the other day on a GLA-BFS, maybe a knock on from that ?

Probably not the easiest question to answer but on the topic of easy I'm wondering would anyone know the percentage of flights booked to London through the London (All Airports) selection. I spotted recently Aer Lingus trialled a London (All Airports) selection before removing it although it has since been re-introduced. Whenever I'm flying to London (which I do regularly) I'm always certain as to which airport I'll be flying to but nevertheless there will always be that percentage that do not, anyone able to shed some info? Very much appreciated.

Any Easyjetters know if there will be a LGW-TRN service this summer?

TRN

Standbykid

Would it not be ALOT quicker to check out the easyjet website where you will find that information right away rather then having to WAIT untill someone on here tells you otherwise!!!

Have it on good authority that easyjet will start a 2 weekly MAN-LED (St Petersburg) from 26th October 2013.

Geneva and Gatwick to follow once the approvals are given.

Regarding the possible LED flights, would that mean another airframe being based at MAN from the autumn? Just not sure if any space is available in the current winter schedule or not.

As far as im aware there are still plenty of gaps in the winter schedule that could fit the LED flights, but happily stand to be corrected.

Website Booking Issues - Not Very EASY

Who has been messing about with the EZY flight booking software?

Today, as I have done without any problem in the past, I attempted to book MAN-BFS-MAN on behalf of an elderly neighbour who does not have internet access.

The EasyJet website wasn't having it. Even though I treated the booking as a "new customer" the website recognised my e.mail address as having been used for bookings before (for my own travel) and would not allow me to make a booking for someone else. It kept insisting that I book via the "account" which I use for my own travel under a different surname.

QUESTION ONE: What complete halfwit builds a landmine like this into the purchasing process? This totally unnecessary booking step actually blocks the new transaction from progressing at all. [FLYBE say thanks very much, by the way].

QUESTION TWO: Do EasyJet's management and IT programmers live in households from which only one named passenger ever travels? Have you ever heard of customers booking for other members of the family, or for friends? Why build in a booking step to PREVENT them from buying a flight?

QUESTION THREE: Is any reader aware of any other airline which has inserted a diamond-encrusted howler like this into their own booking engine to prevent customers from completing flight purchases?

PLEA TO MS. MCCALL: Please can you pop round to your IT programmers and give them a hefty whack with your handbag. Then tell them to remove this absurd e.mail address recognition software which PREVENTS other customers from the same household from making EasyJet bookings. If not, please can you explain to the shareholders why this superfluous booking step is so important to you that you are happy to block legitimate customers from spending money with your airline? Thanks.

Just KEEP IT SIMPLE please. You are called EASYJET, after all.

Booking

Another website howler?

BHX-BFS tomorrow night was showing sold out last night so it was a surprise to see it offered for a £5 when I checked tonight!!!!

I went through to seat selection and 150 out of 156 seats taken (no surprise as the NEC is busy this week) and although it looked like it could be £5.00 or £500 on the previous page it was in fact £5.

Naturally I didn't try and complete the booking but I can't believe this is right............easy paying APD as well

I just checked it again and still £5

Thursday night which was showing £189 last night is now sold out so I assume £5 is to put it mildly a glitch.

I see Thursday evening is fully booked, route must be doing well for them, could we see EZY taking over the LBA now LS has dropped it?
If no one picks it up it will be good news for BE
But I find most time EZY go head to head with BE on a route they do very well, maybe they'll try it again

It would be nice to see. They have done well on MAN and BHX from BFS as they are big markets. Don't know if LBA is big enough, maybe EMA?

easy at BHX

BHD2BFS

The easy route BHX-BFS seems to be fitting into a pattern - Every night the flight does fairly well plus both services on a Sunday, Monday morning inbound to BHX is also good as you would expect, so are Tuesdays and Wednesdays if an exhibition is on at the NEC. Friday evening both ways of course are healthy with Thursday, Friday and some Saturdays morning flights light at times although the latter is picking up.

easy have reconised this with Thursday and Friday increased to three daily from winter. Fares on the route do vary with still some bargains to be had on the morning flights.

To think you could have payed a fiver and be sitting next to someone who has paid £189
