Hey, at least you get to wear a pilots uniform. Over at TOM the female pilots get to wear female cabin crew uniform. Albeit with trousers. And stripes.

Calm down everyone. We WERE consulted and the uniform was trialled for suitability of the material. An online poll for all pilots with the choice of three button, two button, single breast, double breast, gold or platinum stripes etc etc. So nothing has been imposed - the orange piped coat was, unsurprisingly, rejected

This has been done as a cost saving exercise. We don't get "uniform allowance" anymore but the company now provide uniform - overall a saving for the company but in reality we are out of pocket.

I can't believe how people get so worked up.

The Greek press is heavily suggesting that Easyjet are going to start doing some internal routes in Greece.... Could there be any truth behind this?

easyJet make a refund - ssh!

Nicholas49,

If you are still looking for a contact number at easyJet, you may find this interesting.

Talk of a "no-refund" airline might be a little premature - at least for some!

Some will have seen in the press, stories about Easyjet continuing to sell tickets out of East Midlands to avoid being seen to prejudice the 90 day consultation period. While not an easy time for those based at EMA, could someone explain why it's really necessary to continue to sell tickets for June 2010 in the knowledge that many of the customers will quite likely just end up being told their flight will not go ahead after all and offered a refund ?

Annoys the passengers, probably doesn't add much credible reassurance to staff, and smacks of a rather weak human resources department. What happened to the swashbuckling Easyjet of the 1990s that went out there and did things, instead of being tied down with worries about the potential implications of legislation ?

To be fair, there is a possibility that some EZY flights will still serve EMA.

Some EZY flights may fly from EMA (just no base).

And you can't be seen to have already made a decision during the 90 day consultation period - it needs to be just that - a consultation period. At the end of the period you may decide to make people redundant but you can't do it beforehand!

For Easyjet website FAQ, flights from all base are on sale for spring 2010, but for LTN and MXP base is not true.

davidjohnson6, what would your reaction be if easy stopped selling tickets before the 90 day consultation?

Would you throw your arms up and make disparaging comments about their prejudging the consultation.

Damned if they do etc etc, eh?

EMA

Give Easyjet some credit; just look at the prices they are quoting for 2010 flights - they are certainly making sure that very few seats are sold, if any ...!
It is therefore also evident they have no intention of operating any further flights from the airport, even from other bases?

Airbus Girl-

All male pilots at ezy will be wearing male cabin crew uniform with stripes. The only difference will be a plain black tie - but various striped ones were offered!

I've just received latest Easyjet newsletter that suggest to buy early and save your flight from MXP for spring 2010, but these flight are not on sale!

New routes for Feb 2010: DUS-LGW, DUS-FCO

Easyjet

New:Dusseldorf, International (Rhein-Ruhr) (DUS) to Rome, Leonardo Da Vinci (Fiumicino) (FCO)
New:Dusseldorf, International (Rhein-Ruhr) (DUS) to London, Gatwick (LGW)

Not mentioned here yet, spotted this on theairdb, both daily flights from Feb 2010, already bookable. DUS doesn't really lack London options already, e.g. AB, BA and LH, plus FR from NRN and 4U from CGN. Obviously nice to see any expansion of EZY in Germany, but I doubt these are the greatest gaps in the market.
