EasyJet will now become the second airline in the UK to operate A320's with Sharklets fitted. All EasyJet A320 delivered from September (G-EZWM onwards) will have Sharklets fitted.

Reuters has dispatched this news:
Easyjet's estranged founder Stelios Haji-Ioannou said on Monday he would vote against the budget airline's plan to buy 135 new Airbus planes because they were not needed
I feel very sorry for EZY folks, it's ridiculous.

Don't feel too sorry. Have you seen the share price?

Slightly down today, but what's the point here? The shareholder's short-term gains do not necessarily support job creations nor the future growth of the enterprise, what's more important?

Friends have just been advised that their fortcoming flight to TFS will be operated by Titan Airways. The email does not make it clear if this relates only to the outbound flight on 14th July or to their return on 29th July also.

The email states that the cabin crew will be Titan Airways but an Easyjet rep will be onboard. Allocated seating is to be abandoned with refunds where necessary, but Speedy Boarding will be in place for those who have paid for upfront or extra legroom seats.

The reason given is 'due to an increased number of passengers travelling during the summer season we will be working with Titan Airways, who will be operating the flight on our behalf.'

Anyone know which aircraft will be doing the run?

Hi Sark -

What is your point of departure? EZY serve TFS from a number of airports.

Titian B757 will be operating out of LGW for the peak summer, the email means that both flights will be a B757.

Wouldn't take much notice of the reason given either.

Shed-on-a-Pole the departure point is LGW.

It looks as though the subsequent response answers my question. Any further info would be welcome however.

What is the seat pitch on a Titan 757?

As stated there will be operations by Titan at LGW for peak months made up of a single 757. This is described as an extra line of flying...

The aircraft will be fully manned by Titan and also a 'supernumary' member of staff from easyJet cabin crew. This will be to ensure a consistent on board experience for the customer. I would suggest there will be little difference to flying on usual easyJet service except you get to fly on 757...

Can London-Bucharest really sustain 5 different airlines ?

DJ6 -

From next January when Bulgarians and Romanians are free to settle in the UK, the market will expand noticeably.

LGS - I agree EU labour mobility will expand the market. Howevere 5 carriers competing and needing to make a profit suggests a vicious battle for consumers. The only EU routes I can think of from the UK where 5 carriers survive typically have 12 or more flights per day - routes like London to Rome, Alicante, Palma or Malaga.

Maybe Easyjet will make money on the route but I just don't see room for 5 profitable players - best guess is that 1 airline will end up being squeezed out after a price war.

DJ6,

You may be right. Time will tell, so watch this space!
I would have thought that Blue Air would struggle against Wizz, but they are maintaining their schedule at present.

Didn't EZY do LGW to OTP in 2007/8?

Yes, they did - it didn't work due to low yields and poor ancillary revenue (next to no on-board spend) and so they pulled it. I can't see why either of those two factors should be any different this time round!
