I notice that 11 days ago Easyjet released seats from late March 2014 until 15 June 2014 for routes which are already being flown or whose start date is no later than mid March 2014.
New routes which have been effectively announced like Gatwick-Jersey are not yet on sale.
There do not appear to be any extra flights on sale at Gatwick yet to cover the increase in slots due to Flybe.

I imagine there will be a sizeable number of new flights / routes for summer 2014 that are yet to go on sale. Is anyone *knowledgable* (I'm capable of guessing mid/late October) able to indicate roughly when these extra flights are likely to be made available for sale to the general public ?

Guernsey

Easyjet staff have been spotted in Guernsey over the past few days, are there concrete plans to operate into the Island?

Funny that easyjet announced the HAM base today but refused to give any route info - this in order to protect their commercial interests. They must be really scared of Lufthansa/Germanwings who have a history of capacity dumping when a LCCshows up on their doorstep.

What do you mean with "but not open a base"? The SXF base has been there for close to a decade now.

Well, it leaves two options Ramper1:

a) You misinform on purpose, making any information you write here utterly useless as you can not be trusted.

b) You are a pathological liar who tries to attach importance to statements by claiming credentials you don't possess.

I know which one I think it is, but either option renders you without any credibility anyway.

You did announce something, you said it would be a W pattern and you also said you work int he department and boasted that you're 'in the know'.

Getting the info wrong / misleading wouldn't really matter, but the way you put down others just sucked.

Here are a few quotes from past posts by Ramper1:

I work in the commercial department, so I am in the know.
but also

I've been at Easyjet for 13 years and have never nightstopped in Aberdeen. Gla, bfs and edi yes, but NEVER Aberdeen. So don't know where you got that one from
Are qantas still recruiting? If so, where can I find the application form? Looked on website and there's nothing about f/a
I've worked exclusively in the 320 this winter from LGW and I can truthfully say that I have never had less than 176 pax on any flight.
Does anyone have the telephone number for recruitment at Cityflyer? Have emailed them, but to no avail :-(. I need to contact them urgently.
So I think Ramper1 is a member of the "Commercial department" in the broadest sense, i.e. those members of the Commercial staff who wear uniforms and work on board aircraft, rather than what we might naively have imagined: head office staff who are responsible for network, pricing, marketing etc. and who are therefore "in the know" by virtue of their jobs.

See also the definition of "sciolist" at the bottom of this page...

If I remember right from a previous incarnation, I bet a lot of the pax from KEF will be Icelanders coming to UK for Christmas shopping and the New Year, can't see a lot of tourism from UK in December!!

.....whilst at the same time they seem to be prepared to enter into a competition on LGW-GCI, a route which may be operationally restricted by the runway on the island.

Never mind, I'm sure they know what they're doing.

Easyjet

I'm sure that there's more (or less) than meets the eye to Easy Jets GCI-LGW application.
Time will tell. Don't be surprised if it doesn't happen !
