easyJet do not typically stay in the market where intense competition exists unless the competitor is less strong, i.e. it will go up against higher cost OR weaker competitors. Examples include putting it up to Flybe or Aer Lingus, however, where Norwegian, Ryanair or Vueling (and Wizz I guess, but no big cross over), they will bow out rather than make small or no returns. An unwavering interest in shareholder return. And to date the company is performing strongly and returning good profits, so clearly some merit in its approach.


easyJet is a prudent operator and do not waste time losing money in markets that long term will not be profitable or secure.
Nonetheless, as the saturation of the market by the lower cost operators continues a pace easyJet may find this competition more prevalent, hence, they need to continue to focus on areas that are more fruitful, I.e. hitting the legacy carriers and focusing on hub airports etc.

Jamie 2k9 I don't think you can accuse easyJet of running away from Vueling when they have announced a new base at Barcelona which is Vueling's main hub when I last checked !

Yet closing FCO to move aircraft to MXP, VCE and NAP goes entirely against that.

It seems now they just make changes depending on current yields and market conditions with I think a lack in longer-term consideration. FCO was also one of EZY's fastest growing airports this year so that wasn't particularly sustainable.

With FR's changing strategy and the likes of VY, W6, DY and 4U all having become major players in Europe, EZY can't avoid them forever. There will come a point they will crumble if this act carries on because it's only going to make them weaker against the strongest competitors.

I also can't see any value in the point they make about FCO having poor customer satisfaction. They're still going to fly to the airport. I'd say that's nothing more than a swizz to try and make it look as if they are putting their customer needs first when in actual fact that has little if any bearing in this at all!

FratSTN, when was the last time you flew through FCO ? The place is currently a nightmare, the terminal fire has not helped, airlines are being required to reduce their flights by up to 40% flying through FCO on some days because the airport infrastructure can't cope. Some flights are cancelled in advance at the request of airport authorities and some operate through Ciampino. Delays are commonplace due to lack of stands and congestion made worse by the fire and Yields are low due to lots of domestic competition. Customers sometimes have to check in at one terminal, get bussed to another terminal for passport checks and security and then head off to the aircraft. I think it's a sensible option that's been announced although of course it's not nice for crews and the ground teams who have their home and livelihood there.

There was a fire at Terminal 3 at FCO some months ago and many passangers have to go through Terminal 2 now which is not the best solution. Also there are a lot of delays at FCO due to construction workings at the terminals and runway closure. My EZY flight was delayed by 2 hours (as aircraft has to wait before take-off as just one runway was open for take-off) and back half an hour (due to heavy traffic).

Reliability at FCO is not the best at the moment. Maybe once constructions are done EZY will come back?

Increasing competition from VY, FR, DY and W6 is also a good point. EZY should be the market leader at MXP, VCE and NAP. Fair enough to look at those points. Sicily is left out a bit, maybe CTA and PMO will join the EZY bases?

Airport facilities at FCO have been limited by the fire, no idea when terminal 3 will be fully reopened. Lots of terminal changes and diversions to other airports. Even BA have had to cancel two flights a day from LHR. Seems a sensible move on Easyjet's part.

Which Easyjet routes from FCO are likely to be axed?

I guess all flights from FCO to non-EZY bases like MUC, PRG, VIE, CPH and all the leisure routes to Greek and Spain.

FR announced some years back they would increase their base at FCO to over 10 planes. Right now they also just got 2 based planes at FCO with operating a lot of flights from other bases to FCO.

I'm guessing post Carolyn's statement about the Barcelona move (I.e. We are not going to be #1 or #2 at BCN), suggests that putting a base there will allow for cist effective early morning business timings ex BCN...? given the very competitive landscape there, I can't see a lot of new routes starting by easyJet..

Reason for divert to CGN when DUS destination

Anyone know why EZY 8599 diverted to CGN when due inbound DUS from LGW? Have a pax on board who said no reason given...am sure that not the case...the aircraft was late in departing LGW.

Wouldn't have had sufficient time to depart before the curfew at 22:00L. The jet-ban is strictly enforced at DUS without exception, thus U2 opted to divert into CGN and bus pax to CGN.

Eh? What strictly enforced jet ban after 22.00l? There are numerous jet arrivals on the board after that time...at least from what I can see... do you refer to departure only ?
