Fairly true, however, the lack of direct train connection to LTN Airport for passenger originating from the Virgin West Coast Network (northern of the airport) makes things much more difficult.

Virgin Trains passenger are, in fact, routed via Milton Keynes Central and than coached to Luton Airport on a Virgin Train Shuttle calling at many places here in and there (many more than the sister service by Natexpress. Train tickets rarely offer a routing via Luton Apt P'way coming from the north.

I agree, in principle, that the service may be successful though. We'll see in the coming months!

As MXP is now easyJet's biggest base in Europe, and LTN is easyJet's HQ and main training facility, perhaps the route is so they can save on taxi fares between LTN and LGW every time a manager needs to go to MXP or italian crew need to go to LTN. And if they can pick up a few pax along the way, great!

NCL Base

Newcastle is currently 3 B73G's and 2 A319's, from 20th May this becomes 3 B73G's and 3 A319's or 4 B73G's and 2 A319's depending on which website you check :-).

Winter 09 reverts back to 5 A/C not sure of the B73G/A319 split at the moment...

MXP: 15 (+ night stop at FCO, 2 or 3 a/c?)
SXF: 8 (maybe 9 during summer)
MAD: 6
ORY: 6
CDG: 5
LYS: 2

All the facts about the UK bases are very interesting cause I'm not sure about it.

Just 2 questions: EMA still 3 and I thought LPL goes up to 8 (you're talking it goes up to 9)?

Gatwick will have 39 aircraft based!

The expansion will see an additional aircraft based at London Gatwick, bringing the total number of aircraft based there to 39.

Easyjet is the first airline at LGW? What is the market share?

Is possible for Easyjet to make a personalized booking engine? When I check the Italian website on the top of booking engine appears italian airports, with the English website on the top appears UK airports end so on... For me is a good idea..

Good question re.ezy LGW terminals, they seem to have moved some flights over to the north from the south and they seem to be in favour of the north? wonder how having a split operation hinders the airline (if at all)?

Cant see room in the north for the whole ezy operation and i cant see them giving up the north so i guess a split operation will be kept?

On 28th April U2 is celebrating its 5th anniversary of SXF base. Now there are 9 planes, SXF-CPH and SXF-BRU goes up from 1 daily to 2 daily from 25th October.
Also BSL-BCN goes up from 1 daily to 2 daily and BSL-BOD from 2/7 to 4/7 starting from winter.

Don't think there is enough room in either Terminal for the entire operation. Perhaps if they move BA out of the North Terminal?? * cough *

Given BA is showing cancellation of 6 routes out of LGW incl Atlanta / Brussels / Toulouse / Geneva / Zurich / Marrakech.....most I think previously announced.

?? ATL and TLS moved to LHR

GVA and ZRH(?) will be back for the winter

RAK wasn't a BA route and it went when GB went orange

BRU is a BA codeshare route operated by Brussels Airlines.

That's correct, Zurich won't be back. With the B737-300s and B737-500s going they don't have the correct capacity for some routes anymore. The series 400 is a little large as is the A319. Gatwick is coming full circle to be a leisure oriented BA base, with most of the Club heavy routes at Heathrow.

British Airtours anyone? I think easyJet have been very succesful in building up Gatwick but the South Terminal is, lets be honest crap. I bet they'd want the whole operation from the North Terminal but with BA still in situ for a few more years, I don't think the capacity is there alas.

Inverness Service

It looks like easyJet have dropped the Gatwick-Inverness route from the start of the winter timetable as it is not bookable from the end of October. The Luton service which was downgraded to a three times weekday and Saturday and Sunday service last winter has been upgraded to a daily rotation.

have you considered the possibility that no route ex Lgw is on sale yet? I think you will find that Lgw is not yet on sale for W09.
