It will be of interest what plans materialise for post end of March 2014 for the LGW slots that are to come from Flybe. Inverness confirmed for a night stop and early flight to LGW, besides that nothing so far.

They have said the slots would be used to increase frequency on existing routes. Though remains to be seen, there are additional peak early morning arrivals times there in the mix, and unless these are used on flights from existing bases, additional night stops to come.

IOM though has be debated somewhat, lies in the balance regarding frequency to London, I sense that EZY will fill the gap being left, but this all remains to be seen.

On an entirely separate but related note, what are Flybe going to do with the freed up capacity from the LGW services?

9 airframes will join the fleet for growth in the next financial year, so there will not be massive growth other than the LGW Flybe slots.

What do you mean by base cut? Do you mean a reduction in aircraft or a base closure?
Yes Cassandra, do share the rumour please....

Uk bases

I would suggest that is gla is to loose an aircraft it will go to either edi or man.
Lgw will grow as they have the extra slots but they may be able to better use the aircraft they have by reducing turnaround times there?

If lpl loose and aircraft it will go to man!

I would expect a little play around with the routes of the other bases. Would be nice if TFS was offered at ncl throughout the summer too

Don't except LPL will get anything either, will be lucky to keep there current size I expect. Overall would say growth from the UK will be small..
Don't EXPECT LPL will get anything either, will be lucky to keep THEIR current size (whatever that means!) I expect.

(Translated into correct English for the benefit of those who may not understand WTF the poster is talking about!)

GLA is about to LOSE an aircraft...

Reducing turnaround times? They are standard throughout the EZY network!

If lpl loose and [sic] aircraft it will go to man - please state the source of this information - do you work in EZY route planning or are you writing this from your bedroom?

When you can put forward a reasoned argument in acceptable English, I'll be happy to listen to your points of view, until then I suggest you spend your spare time learning how to put forward a reasoned argument in a form of English that we can all understand.

Well, that's fine for you, but I also studied English at School, (I AM English!)but I just find it difficult to understand what some of these posters are trying to say. I'm willing to listen to their point of view. It just helps to be able to read people's postings without having to translate them first!

I find it always helps not to be rude !

but back on the subject, I also will be interested to see what U2 do with bases, routes and aircraft etc.

Obviously my main interest will be NQY and what if anything is offered to NQY from bases next year.

I get the feeling that LPL will offer a NQY rotation again, maybe a longer run and might be 4 or 5 weekly.

I can also see potential for MAN-NQY in addition to the current summer time daily BE route, something which worked for BMI Baby and Air Southwest.

The interesting thing for NQY & U2 will be what if anything they decide to offer from LGW-NQY

Not being rude. Simply asking the posters to put their points in a way which we can all easily understand, given that this is an international forum. I believe English is the first language of the current posters - what's rude about that?

I too hope that routes will be offered to NQY from the north of England next year. It's a long drive from anywhere north of Birmingham, and frankly I would rather fly to NQY than drive there.

I have made no reference to Manchester getting an aircraft from Liverpool, what I did say was that LPL won't see growth. EZY have shown they are not overly committed to Liverpool in the last few years and this won't change. Just to be very clear a new route from MAN doesn't mean a new based unit.

I don't work for EZY planning department but I have sources not specific to the route planners.

I do apologize for my spelling mistake which clearly has upset you more than most posters!

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.
Please explain your rationale for this comment and what routes you think will be introduced to the network.

Continuing the quoting theme regarding expansion, here is one from last month regarding expansion from Liverpool.

easyJet and Liverpool John Lennon Airport (JLA) have confirmed the signing of a new 9 year agreement that will see the continued expansion of the UKís largest airline from Liverpool.

To coincide with this long term commitment to Liverpool, easyJet have also announced the addition of a new destination from JLA, with flights to Larnaca Airport in Cyprus starting this winter. The airline is also celebrating its inaugural flights to Newquay and Nantes this week.

This new contract will enable easyJet to look at new route opportunities to grow their business from JLA over the long term, building on their already well-established Liverpool base.

Based on what we've heard over the last few months, Liverpool and Stansted should be the ones seeing the growth but I now don't think either will in 2014, but maybe beyond that.

About the Flybe slots at Gatwick, EasyJet will station one aircraft in Inverness as previously said.

Gatwick itself has about 55 based aircraft as it is, which probably allows for a quite a bit of wriggle room in the schedule to add a number of other slot pairs with the existing fleet at Gatwick.

The point I'm basically making is that maybe only a few additional aircraft would actually have to be added to Gatwick to take over all the Flybe slots, if the efficiency of the current aircraft at Gatwick is increased.

With 9 aircraft joining the fleet, there could still be a few left over for potential growth and some other bases.

And there's always the strong possibility that one base may gain aircraft at another's expense, such as Glasgow losing one to Edinburgh for example.

@HH6702 when you suggest GLA is to lose a based unti to EDI or MAN is this based on inside knowledge or your finger in the air?

Much of the quotes are standard prattlings from marketing who are paid to commmunicate such twaddle.

No a/c based at Inv. Will be a night stop from LGW. Also LGW looking at up to 10 extra a/c for summer 14.

I didn't go in detail about exact routes just that those airports I stated might see a route or two added and that LGW will see increase in based unites next year.

In simple words 2014 will be more less all about LGW for EZY.

EZY has 58 planes based in LGW at the moment and expect to increase the fleet there by 7 to cover the newly acquired slots from Flybe from March 14. As mentioned earlier 1 plane from LGW will be overnighting in INV using a Flybe slot.

Have just got my boarding passes for a trip this weekend and seem to see a change from my last on EZY in June.

Following the download there was no 'you are now checked in'. No change of status. Is that the way they do it now?

Thanks.
