First off i am really sorry for all the Guys & Girls with EZY at EMA, you are a credit to the airline and i know the next few months will not be easy for you and your angst will increase when the t*ats at Ryanair (not crews!!) turn up tomorrow with Bye Bye Easy on their aircraft, i suspect even the Ryan crews will feel bad about it.

This is a loss for East Midlands and will prove to be a loss for Miss money Penny, had this happened before/followed by the (far from likley with each day that passes) flogging of baby they (EMA) would be left with Ryanair, i would not want to be in a director's meeting at MAG and 12 Ryanair aircraft on the ramp and contract renwel due next month..........

There is now an opportunity with MAG, baby, Jet2 to rid themselves of the cancer that is MOL (not the crews), the term fair weather friends springs to mind

Bye Bye Easyjet A/c

Coincidentally, the FR aircraft which has 'BYE BYE EASYJET' titles on is currently based at EMA. The aircraft is EI-DLO, which operated my flight back from DUB last night (FR536). Is that really a coincidence?

Terrible news for all the crew involved... I assume that the crew still have jobs??? Guessing they will be re based or simply following the aircraft or demand?? Sincerely hope so, know some great folks at EMA.

Good luck

Isn't it amazing (NOT) the lack of abuse Easyjet get for exiting a base and cancelling flights. Funny how when Ryanair did it at Manchester the abuse lasted a couple of weeks.

Easyjet doing what they believe is in their best long term interest, its no different from any other airline.

racedo - people are fine with a route closing with 4 months notice, but less so when given just 4 weeks notice.

It's not just what a company does, but also how a company does it that matters

The official line from the company is that all the EMA staff are "at risk of redundancy".

The 90-day consultation period will hopefully help prevent that and find jobs elsewhere, should they wish to stay with the company.

The line from the company was the passengers in the EMA region will fly from either LTN or MAN.... What planet are they on??? I've had so many passengers say today 'can't belive you are leaving EMA we'll have to fly with the other lot now' So I said we do this route from MAN and LTN. 'I'm not going to go all that way I want to fly from EMA' Thats what folk are like in the midlands, still we don't see the bigger picture.

racedo -

EasyJet is receiving plenty of criticism/abuse on PPRuNe over the EMA decision. However, it is mainly to be found in the separate 'EasyJet@EMA' thread which is running in parallel with this one. No doubt the mods will get round to merging the two threads in due course.

There has been a lot of talk about the loss of aircraft at LTN. This winter EZY is expected to have 2 320's based for TLV/SSH/PFO. These will also operate to AMS (others TBA) in the morning as these leave around 11am.

What if EZY reduced the base by 3 aircraft, but replaaced some of the 73G's with 320's, so say that they have 5 320's. This would go some way to replace the seats lost by removing aircraft.

Maybe for summer 2010 with 320's:

2 daily to MAD
2 daily to AMS (down from 3)
1 daily to FAO (down from 2)
3 daily to BFS (down from 4)

Can't believe that EZY won't have a presence in the Midlands!
No one I know would travel to LTN or MAN from EMA area for a short haul flight.

Should have expanded 3 years ago instead the base stagnated. No imagination or drive from LTN, unlike the crews who battle to provide the SPH required.

More business for FR, Jet2 and Baby, nice own goal

Easyjets OWN fault, on all our stagnant routes which we have had for 7 years, our flights were all FULL.
They never gave us new ones like they do LGW, BRS, LPL etc....
There own fault and i hope BMIbaby take it forward now and prosper sooo much

When GO 1st came into EMA, they really pushed for the lions share of the market, then back came baby in OCT 2002 and it was a good fight for a while, especially on the scottish routes. EZY just trod water. Never thought I'd see Easy give up without a struggle.
Good news for all my old mates at baby. Hope they go on and show RYR how it should be done.
Good luck to all EZY staff at EMA.
P.S Is Ash Haywood still a skipper on 319's?

I'm elaborated on this on the EMA thread, but what do people here think about Easyjet's website still happily selling you EMA flights to all current destinations (apart from Ibiza which I think is summer-only) until June 2010. This is very odd and will annoy a lot of people. They have to set a date when they want to leave EMA, or just rethink the whole story.

Yeah, the expensive gift of 300 quid return from London to Dublin. Not too many were able to enjoy that.
