She might be taken more serious if she went on Sky and apologised for the lousy customer service that they seem to indulge in these days..I do believe they have had to make a profit warning as well..might be due to previous loyal customers defecting.

I saw one basic report by Sky repeated several times today to the effect that easyJet are negotiating with several different members of the rump-27 EU for an AOC which will allow it to continue with its current access to the whole of the current EU.

And more recently an update, the latter from an expert business correspondent (sic) Ian King (I think) intimating that the process involved was essentially little more burdensome than seeking a postal box as an address in an obliging friendly jurisdiction (my metaphor but a fair representation of his tone, I affirm.) To be fair he did intimate that a handful of legal types would need to be stationed at this PO Box.

I wonder if Boris has had a hand in writing this post-Brexit fairy tale version of life?

I know W6 have set up AOC's in different countries (Hungary, Bulgaria & Ukraine?), as well as DY, but EZY buy an airline to get an AOC? Maybe someone like Volotea?

Volotea could be a very good fit. As well as a Spanish AOC, there would be a lot of existing dots around the easyJet network joined by adding the Volotea routes. They are also replacing their 717s with A319s and so it would be a good outlet for retiring easyJet A319s from the core operation.

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 .

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.
