Don't get the bit about the flapping toilet doors at the rear?!

A very clever use of the space. I get how it works but I don't understand the pivoting door. How does it is secure and lock closed?

easyJet using Titan A320 this summer at EDI

A few weeks ago while booking my regular EDI-STN-EDI flights an obscure 18:00 STN-EDI was showing on the booking system. It only seemed to be operating on 21st May. As it is far better than the normal 16:10 or 21:40 STN-EDI flights I booked it.

On Wednesday I received an email saying my flight was being operated by a 186 seat Titan A320. Having looked at the EZY flight tracker it appeared to only be operating STN-EDI with no obvious return flight or another follow-on.

At the gate I could see that it was fully booked with at least 3 pax on standby. Normally STN-EDI is a A319 so the far more sociable flight time must have proved attractive.

The aircraft is Titan liveried but the crew were wearing what looked like a hybrid Titan/EasyJet uniform with easyJet name badges. Even the LCD display for the cabin crew was easyJet branded. The seats are all leather and seemed more comfortable than easyJets. I was in row 1 and got chatting to the CC. They said the flight was a positioning flight to EDI as the aircraft was to be based at EDI for the summer. Whether this means an A319 has gone elsewhere on the network or EZY are adding an additional aircraft to minimise any delays is unknown.

The Titan A320 is an additional based aircraft at EDI providing extra capacity until the end of July.

The Titan A320 will be in EDI for 8 weeks, then move to FCO to provide extra capacity for 7 weeks and then finally to LGW for 6 weeks. A Titan B757 will also be operating over the peak summer months to provide extra capacity in LGW.

In what way is it providing "extra capacity"? Replacing an EDI based A319 or as a completely additional aircraft allowing them to add extra schedules on certain routes?

I've since received another 3 emails saying my flight is being operated by Titan. All the flights on the same reference are EDI-STN or STN-EDI.

It's an additional based aircraft as said, meaning 8 a/c at EDI. Frequency increases on the majority of Euro city routes.

Will easyJet announce any new route for WS15/16?

It's nearly mid-June and any new route has been announced yet. All bases are already fully scheduled? Can't believe that...

easyJet to cancel CMN-LYS & CMN-CDG routes at the beginning of November. Seems quite dramatic the Winter Season while no new routes are being added to the map.

Bit surprised about the retreat from FCO to be honest.

FCO retreat explains why Milan/Rome is being dropped.

Heavy competition in Rome maybe, alongside the ability to maintain quite a few routes using aircraft from other bases?

Another example of one's gain (or 3 in this case) at another's expense.

FCO has 8 aircraft. VCE and MXP will get 3 each and NAP will get 1, so I make that 1 less aircraft in Italy next year? So surely no growth for Italy at all, if anything a reduction!

To think how its always been about primary airports for EZY and they've now closed bases at both MAD and FCO. Wouldn't be surprised if they eventually cut back in SXF now FR are up against them.

How can they say what a strong competitor they are when most of the time they just shy away from it and closing relatively large bases at such key airports?

I think at some point they're going to have to stand up to the others a bit more or they could find themselves in a dangerous place a few years down the line.

FRatSTN: EZY have said they will move the 8 a/c based at FCO to:

3 moved to MXP
1 moved to NAP
4 moved to VCE

Which equals 8 a/c. I don't see that as a 1 a/c reduction!!

Fair enough I thought VCE was 3. Nonetheless my point remains.

You say "most of the time" they shy away from a strong competitor, based on a sample of......*two*

How about LGW? Did they flee the mighty BA? Or is it the case the markets they are stepping back from are in countries where the economy is perhaps, um, how to put this, under-performing? Ryanair can make money where no one else can as they have a the lowest cost base of the locos. It's a surprise to me too but we haven't seen the books and like Ryanair, the numbers likely show the assets can be deployed elsewhere more profitably.

Can you really put the competition of BA in the same basket as Vueling and Ryanair.

Suspect Vueling is the driving force of the shift in capacity some major city pairs both are head to head on and where they are moving aircraft have near zero Vueling presence for now
