This kid gets his post completely wrong - and then comes back well over a week later to edit his post to make it right! Surely this shouldn't be allowed?

More to the point if you apologised for being wrong!
Its an Internet board ....................get over it.

LEEDSAPPROACH

First of all I am not a kid like yourself and yes I have read your ridiculous posts on here and your arrogant opposition to anyone who doesn't agree with you.

I edited my post only to mark a point of ex UK to Sweden routes by Easyjet, I can assure you the crap you have often posted on here is FAR worse than that, but I believe you live your life in a bubble so can't see it.

What routes do you think easyJet will/should have on the cards across their UK bases in W16/S17. They grew most of the bases significantly in terms of 'new routes', apart from Gatwick. La Palma is the only new route so far that has been announced for 2017.

Manchester has seen a healthy amount of growth with new routes like Porto, Vienna, Paris & Milan added this year and Krakůw, Gran Canaria & Turin still to come at the end of this year. I think there are still major gaps in the network that need to be served. Your thoughts?

Luton is running at capacity, but hasn't stopped them adding new routes to Toulouse, Tenerife, Lanzarote & Turin at the end of this year.

Is this Stansted base really necessary for easyJet. They cannot expanded it really as it is Ryanair's home base with fierce competition and they have Gatwick and Luton bases close by. They should just move routes to Gatwick or Luton bases and operate popular routes like Amsterdam from their base in Amsterdam. Opinions?

It's "necessary" in the way that where the remaining routes at STN are profitable, there's surely no reason for them to move elsewhere. I'm not saying it will never happen but can't see much advantage in doing so.

Like it or not... EZY may not have much choice but to turn to STN again if suitable slots cannot be attained at LGW or LTN because as you say - they're at capacity.

By your logic should that mean that FR move all their LTN and LGW routes to STN?

There are, but in the uncertain market the UK might not be their primary focus for the next couple of years.

In reality for the beach routes, Egypt is really off the radar, so they should be looking at West Africa - maybe Gambia and the Cape Verde Islands, just as the major tour ops have. I am really surprised they haven't started Luton to Funchal, only served once a week by Thomson.

Stansted is an odd airport for EZY - pushing markets in which Ryanair would struggle should be their advantage, but is that market big enough?

The mantra is they will only open new routes in which they know they can win, or as a strategic play for the long term. So really, anything can happen!

FRatSTN,
Given your handle, I'd suggest you are far closer to STN matters than I. However your closing comment re by your logic should that mean that FR move all their LTN and LGW routes to STN?' Ryanair has an immensely superior cost position to EasyJet, hence it can make its flying programme work at lower levels of demand and is pricing policy is designed to generate demand and grow markets, they also have very deep pockets coupled with a willingness to compete into they reign supreme. There are few examples of where they have ran from the competition. So an FR consolidation to STN not likely. The other two airports are very significant to FR. LTN keeps its toe on easyJet, quite a few strategically places routes their to keep easyJet off, like rak and mla. LGW is now the destination for one of Ryanair's busiest routes, DUB LGW will move to 8 daily from W16/7, and BFS to 5, so a very significant dot on Ryanair's map.

EasyJet has pruned the Stansted network consistly, and shifted routes to LGW where Ryanair is likely to show up... With Ryanair on GLA and EDI ex STN now ( 2 big STN routes for easyJet), we shall see easyJet's commitment to STN tested..

I agree with you both EI-BUD & toledoashley. I just don't understand what they are trying to do at Stansted and the logic behind it. For example, they ended their Sofia service from Stansted, then Ryanair jumped on the route and then easyJet returned with low frequency seasonal service. How is that suppose to hold up or compete with Ryanair also operating?

Also they launched a 2 weekly seasonal Reykjavik service that wasn't well timed and operated on inconvenient days for a weekend trip, and I montiroed the route and loads were shocking, should just stick with Gatwick & Luton.

They could expand their networks at either Gatwick or Luton with routes like Asturias, Bilbao Cagliari & Ljubljana transferred from Stansted and serve Stansted from their bigger bases like Amsterdam.

I do like the idea of easyJet operating to Cape Verdefrom Gatwick, especially Boa Vista, as I think it would be quite popular. I think easyJet are running out of routes to operate from Gatwick or are there still gaps in the network where they could viably operate to?

Same old

AVGEEK, is this not just going over the same things that you posted in the LTN thread back in June http://www.pprune.org/airlines-airpo...ml#post9397737 it appears you are a Luton fanboy/spotter From your previously posted threads. So is this not just a wish for you for your favourite airport!

Thank you for being so observant about my post in June, as you can probably tell I still think the Stansted base is a bit odd to this day. Luton is certainly not my favourite airport, it is a hellhole! Although I live near Luton I choose to fly from Gatwick every time I fly and travel 2 and a half hours to get there every time actually! Also dont call me a easyJet fanboy next either because I fly BA every year!

It just makes business sense to consolidate there operations in London with their Gatwick and Luton bases why operate a small base that cannot be expanded due to Ryanair knocking at the door with fierce competition operating a wide range of routes. They are also running out of options to expand out of Gatwick and routes like Ljubljana and some others operated at Stansted can help them achieve this.

What is the legroom of the emergency exit rows on Easyjet A320 aircraft?

Its around 36" for the over wings. Same for 2ABC but the bulkhead means there's little in the way of space to stretch your feet. 1ABC has unlimited legroom. However be advised that if the aircraft is 186Y configuration, there will be a bulkhead there also so little foot space. The only other benefit it yours served first at the front.

Bid speculation

https://www.theguardian.com/business...id-speculation

This newspaper is mentioning Stelios, amongst others. The article does say it's all a bit vague.

Take over

Not my usual source of information, but https://www.thesun.co.uk/sun-city/16...-giant-aercap/

Is this unsual for a leasing company to own an airline? I thought the whole point of such companies is to avoid the risks of running and filling planes?

If anyone does take it over, I hope they sort out the customer services of the airline as that area is badly letting down the rest of the company, IMHO.

You don't even need a new set of owners to change things. All it would take is replacing key people under whose watch things have gotten so bad in terms of customer service. The thing is the City is happy with higher than ever profits, ever growing load factors and dividends so unfortunately things will never change.

...please correct me if I'm wrong, but to the six months to March 2016 it lost £24M rather than "higher than ever profits"
