It went smoothly, in favour of the deal were cast about 57 percent of votes.
Between 2015 and 2017 35 current A320s will be taken, then between 2017 and 2022 are to be delivered next 100 aircraft, all of them re-engined A320neos.

Report from the meeting:

Sir Stelios cuts easyJet holding as Airbus order wins backing - Telegraph

Note this comment:

The bigger planes will predominantly be used in existing markets to snatch further share from legacy carriers, easyJet’s chief executive Carolyn McCall said. Any new routes will simply be “joining the dots in our current network”, she said.

The summer is doing better than expected. Profit before tax for the fiscal year ending September 30th. 2013 now expected at 450-480 million pounds.

Must admit having flown FR and EZY within a week of each other EZY in my humble view stands out miles better particularly if cost is equal. The onboard experience on EZY is just much much better and I could understand the pa which helps...The pre assigned seating is also a winner in my humble view

Depends on the distance, but I would pay an extra £20 to fly EZY for mainland Europe trips. Saying that I did use FR a few times early in the summer season to Ibiza to visit family, ticket was only £20rtn.

EZY GREECE BASES

Hi All

Does anyone know of EZY looking at basing an aircraft in Greece at both HER & RHO?
Hoping there is truth in it. Maybe look at doing a domestic route followed by an international each day? For Example RHO - ATH -RHO - MAN - RHO

Routes between NW Europe and Greek islands are very seasonal - plenty of traffic in July, zilch in January. I'm not saying it won't happen, but if an airline wants to set up a base, it's usually better to do it in a location which has demand all year round.

You can probably find some statistics showing how much demand varies between summer and winter if you're interested at
???????? ????????? ?????????? - ??????? Web Site.
(Note - sorry about the question marks, but the Greek alphabet doesn't show up well on here)

Alternatively, look at
Rhodes International Airport - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
You will notice that virtually every single route is listed as "Seasonal"

Bases are made where there is a business demand. Purely leisure trafic is interested in price alone, which means you can fly in the middle of the night and people will still book if the price is right. Further to that, as DJ mentions, Greek islands are extremely seasonal. There is virtually nothing going on in the winter.

Anybody know when EasyJet will put flights after March 2014 on sale?

I thought they usually released up until mid-June from around late July/early August, and then the rest of the summer from around September/October time.

Are they doing it differently this year?

According to there Facebook page:

Apr May Jun to go on sale 1st week of Sept13, with Jul Aug Sep Oct to go on sale in Oct13.


They say they're going to announce routes before sale which doesnt give them much time............

Im holding out for BHX - RHO with the continuing problems with Small Planet Airlines and others before covering BHX Summer routes on behalf of Olympic Holidays.

Surely the routes will be there for grabs.

Also, anyone ideas on FR releasing dates for Summer14?

BHX-RHO? I wouldn't hold your breath for RHO or indeed any new route by EZY from BHX! Do EZY fly on behalf of Olympic from other airports?

For reasons best known to themselves, EZY and BHX just can't or don't want to get into bed with each other. Guess we have to be thankful for the year round BHX-BFS route.

Why Olympic Holidays continue with these third rate carriers to operate (or not!) it's summer programme from BHX is beyond me. At least CY seem to be doing a good job for them this year after a fairly bad start with Enter Air.

"Why Olympic Holidays continue with these third rate carriers "

Ryanair is always later than EasyJet. It will probably be November before we see anything but they tend to release right up until October in one go. New route announcements from them however can be announced before flights go on sale as early as October, but tend to follow up into December/January.

I'm surprised EasyJet haven't already released April, May and June 2014 as they tend to do that in late July into early August, with July-October following in mid September.

I wonder what the possible new routes will be? Hopefully not just Gatwick to here, there and everywhere. Would be nice to see Glasgow, Liverpool or Luton or Stansted get something new, or possibly Birmingham?

What do you mean by base cut? Do you mean a reduction in aircraft or a base closure?

Don't expect LPL will get anything either, will be lucky to keep their current size I expect. Overall would say growth from the UK will be small..

LGW will see most capacity increase with the extra slots to fill. EDI and MAN will probably see a new route or two also. These bases seem to be getting a lot of focus from EZY over the last while.
