Don't know if anyone has seen it, but there is a 'Boycott Easyjet' thread running on Facebook at the moment.Its attracting quite some attention.The source of the protest is mainly to do with their proposal to move the HQ to outside the UK.. nevertheless quite a lot of comments are coming from disgruntled ex customers...still I have no doubt it will be dealt with by their ' customer service's and ignored as usual...might be of interest to some though .

Hang on a mo, I thought Easy were only proposing to move their legal part of the operation outside the UK?

You could not make it up , Eighty percent of business warned that if people did vote to leave the EU this would have a serious impact on UK investement jobs ETC ,

People did decide to go down the leave route and now because a company may have to relocate to protect its interests in the brave new world there are boycotts and howls of protest

We had better get used used to it , Its only bee a week and already Siemens and Ford are talking about cutting UK investment , Interesting times ahead methinks especially when the good ole british public eventually realise boris and co have had them over royally and those dreadfull migrants are still going to be with us and the NHS wont get those promised millions.

Ford, don't make me laugh! They have been cutting UK investment for years. Just ask the good people of Dagenham, Liverpool, Llanelli, Southampton and West Bromwich.

Do you mean all those dreadful migrants that keep the NHS going; or some other dreadful unwashed population?

With regard to the boycott easyJet thread on Facebook it just goes to show how thick some people are. I am sure many people who voted to leave the EU expected the UK to close its borders to EU nationals on Friday!

No thicker than the one who gave them the vote on EU in the first place!

Speaking of thickos ive just watched a depressing bit of TV where a resident of some grim council estate in the north east who admittited he had not voted for thirty years was asked what was his reason for voting out to which he replied "so we can get rid of them migrants and we can build factories again without them germans stopping us

If it wasnt so serious it might be funny

Can we get back to discussing EasyJet on this thread please. This is not the appropriate venue for bitter losers to abuse the 17.4 million people who voted 'leave' for a variety of reasons. The vast majority of them are NOT racists and their democratic mandate must be respected. 'Remain' did not have a monopoly on sound arguments. There was a significant number of poorly informed voters on both sides because the campaign was a lamentable tissue of lies and exaggeration across the spectrum. The result is now in. Let's move on.

Your posting was a tasteless rant totally unrelated to the topic of EasyJet. That's the point. This thread is for EasyJet discussion, not for airing your personal prejudice against residents of NE housing estates.

Nevertheless, Brexit is/will have an impact on easyJet due to the nature of the business. Within context, I don't see the harm in discussing the issue.

Discussing Brexit's effect on EasyJet is absolutely relevant, agreed. It is the type of stuff in posts 4294 & 4295 which has no place in this discussion.

Brexit will of course have an impact on companies like easyJet. It has already taken up legal time and costs just to assess the options before it. The chances are it will either obtain an AOC in another EU country or aquire another carrier based in the EU.
However the truth is nobody knows, because we do not know what the outcome will be in terms of European aviation agreements. Everything at this stage is a guess.
For me, a bigger worry at easyJet is the poor customer services department at the airline which stands to lose more customers at a time when it's short term costs may be on the increase due to the Brexit issue. It is about time some resource was allocated to resolve customer service issues.
As has already been stated, I don't think the calibre of those that called for the vote, or those that exercised that right, are relevent to this thread.

The word from Luton is that easyet will be borrowing a Bombardier C-series from the manufacture as early as next week. I guess we will have to wait and see if the rumour is true or not.

Really? Operated by who? There's only one or two operating in Europe working for Swiss? And who will crew them? If it's to help with capacity then it would make more sense to just wet lease in and they already have an agreement in for this.

I do not think it true. The only reason it was previously mentioned was to negotiate with Airbus - 'give us a discount, or we're to Bombardier'.
