I'm not sure you can blame rail, look at the increase in flights from London to Paris...

Although specific markets - Cologne and Dusseldorf are not too far from each other. Cologne has competition from FR at STN & Germanwings/Eurowings - although Dusseldorf is quite a mystery.

S. London-Brussels is a surprise. If you are outside the immediate centre of London, except for the SE area, surely the train to Brussels is a long journey. Flying LGW-BRU could be quick & cheaper. BRU serves more than Brussels. I would have thought that the competition, i.e. train, BA, Brussels Airlines, RYR - CRL would have made ez LGW-BRU a sound operation, but they must have the data. Schedules can be all important. Perhaps ez didn't have a/c at profitable times.

The boss of the Easyjet airline, Carolyn McCall, has been made a Dame in the New Year Honours list.

She has been chief executive at the airline since early 2010 and has been given the award for her work in the aviation industry.

Good, can now look forward to the "New Years Honours Sale" to follow on from the "20th Birthday Sale"........

Not usually until March if I recall past years correctly.

I haven't seen anything in the press but easyJet have just introduced a £13 'admin' fee per booking. It must be fairly recent because I flew outbound to France 31/12 and returned 7/1/15 and only booked around early December without the fee.

It was brought in when Credit Card fees were capped, so they introduced a 'booking fee' to recoup what was lost from that. Ryanair have done the same.

This has been around for a number of years... just very well hidden.

I wouldn't have minded so long as she remembered to put the receipt in the bag. I may have wanted to return the goods.

She would be wasting her time, M&S has lost power and is losing altitude. The only question is if it makes to the alternate before ...

Who does the maintenance for easyJet? Ryanair have a hangar at PIK and STN but do EZY have anything similar at all?

Thumbs up

Noticed a few EJs have been going to Cambridge on a regular basis so i guess Marshalls are doing the checks over there.
Then there is the Orange hangar at LTN for line Maintenance.

BOH base?

U2 apparently reviewed a potential base at BOH with the following route studies being completed (but no timeline):

Faro, Funchal, Palma, Bordeaux, Nice, Gibralter, Seville, Almeria, Barcelona & Venice

It remains to be seen if this is something that will come to save BOH passenger volumes in 2016 or if it is later in 2017.

I very much doubt BOH would be a base. 3 units seems the minimum base size and BOH would not sustain a year round 3 aircraft base. At best they'll do NCE/BCN/GVA with aircraft based at those locations or W patterns from other bases. AMS/MXP/VCE maybe but they're much less likely. Other destination would need a base and I just can't see it.
