I heard elsewhere that EasyJet flights up to June 2014 will be put on sale tomorrow. I thought it was Thursday but could be wrong.

Should certainly be this week anyway.

According to EZY Facebook page they go on sale tomorrow for Apr/May/Jun.

Does anyone have any ideas of additional routes at all?

ALSO - FRatSTN, when would we expect to see FR Apr-Jun flights go on sale?

Ryanair are quite late. Probably in November but unlike EZY they release right up until October rather than just to June.

Perhaps too early to say for NQY as the timetable issued today runs only until 15th June 2014 and the new LGW-JER route isn't shown at all at present, so there may be other new routes still to be announced.

Some slots in LGW will be used to increase frequencies on LGW-SVQ route. It goes from 5 weekly to daily from 26th March 2014.

All bases which fly into Gatwick will now take over most early morning flights (Base - LGW - Base) except Nice. (BFS,EDI,GLA, SXF, MXP, FCO,BSL, GVA, TLS, LYS, LIS)

LGW based crew currently do night stops in BCN, MAD and CPH. This will be joined by AMS and INV for Sum14.

What is interesting though is that Hamburg has outbound flights to LGW in the early morning but the plane then flies back to Hamburg. Anyone know if Hamburg is going to be a new base for easyJet?

I had to laugh .........OK it's the DM. They can't even write 'easyJet' properly.

EasyJet captain asked for volunteers to leave overbooked flight in exchange for later journey, hotel stay and 400 Euros | Mail Online

It wasn't overbooked, it was above MTOW. Then you get the reader comments from the idiotic :
100 seats = 100 tickets, how can you over book, someone needs maths lessons.

to the more intelligent :
.... the pilot obviously acted accordingly, by ensuring that the plane was safe to fly. I'm unsure of what is being reported here. Although I have noticed that the DM consistently prints negative comments regarding low cost airlines.

Please forgive me if this is a stupid question and don't shoot me down...

But how can a flight like Gatwick to Brindisi exceed the aircrafts MTOW? easyJet operate far longer sectors than this, and these fights are full too. The only cargo would be customers hold luggage, as the airline doesn't carry other cargo - Does it?

We have had no hot weather to effect take off performance in the last few days, and Gatwick's long runway should not restrict a fully loaded A319/320.

Im just asking out of curousity, as my technical knowledge on what caused the issue is limited.

To many fat passengers on the aircraft.

It is strange with it being quiet a short sector. It would be understandable if it was going to TLV or TFS for example.

Ohhhh no!

Have you seen the share price today? They closed up 91p (7.18%) at 1358p...
easyJet plc: LONZJ quotes & news - Google Finance

I would be interested to know why the huge jump today, wonder if there is some rumours in the city on some possible anouncement tomorrow, that has caused some excitement?

More new aircraft, new markets/routes?!

Share price rise

A special dividend is thought to be coming soon - ie return of spare cash to shareholders instead of sitting in an easyjet bank account.

I am sure someone with greater knowledge than I will be able to answer this, but when I worked at an airport MTOW would sometimes be exceeded if runway temperature increased above the expected, if weather conditions changed suddenly causing extra fuel uplift to be required, or fuel supply down route problems meant having to tanker. Or simply, a c*ck-up! It happens.

A319 Passenger Offload

I am certain this problem is not related to the performance capabilities of the aircraft either in respect of the runway or the sector length . The issue will almost certainly revolve around the certificated MTOW of the aircraft, which is a flat line figure. It is common practice for airlines to certificate MTOWs well below the theoretical maximum attributable to performance considerations. They do this in order to save costs because landing and en route charges are frequently based on certificated MTOW. In the case of easyJet I believe most of their A319s are certificated to 68 tonnes MTOW though some are only 66 or 64 tonnes,whereas some airlines use up to 75 tonnes.

There is nothing wrong with this practice, except that it gives the airline less headroom when circumstances on the day exceed the schedule planning assumptions. For example no-one knows for sure how much baggage will be checked in until it has all been weighed. There could be other factors such as a higher than usual fuel requirement e.g. due to alternate weather issues. Whatever the cause there seems to have been a disconnect within the system in that the problem was not identified sooner.

The issue also surfaced recently in the context of BA A319 operations from LGW to/from the Canaries where MTOW appears to have been the culprit, resulting in tech stops for fuel. .

I understand that easyJet use A320s for their longer sectors . Their A320s appear to have MTOWs of 73.5 or 77 tonnes and I imagine they only schedule the 77t aircraft for their Eastern Med services such as TLV and SSH.
