Quick question:

Why is not Easyjet expanding operation in Bilbao( BIO ), I was thinking about the following routes:

MAD-BIO ( They could really offer competitive fares agaisnt Iberia and Spanair)
MXP-BIO ( no other airline on the route)
LGW-BIO ( STN is not popular in BIO)
GVA-BIO ( no other airline on the route )

MAD-BIO
Possibly a good route but the route is already piled with seats. However, U2 would offer much better fares than IB would be able to so maybe a 2-3 times daily?

MXP-BIO
Would there be enough demand?

LGW-BIO
Maybe better for connections but the route would not be flying it is wasn't making money for U2 so obviously STN is popular enough.

GVA-BIO
Again, enough demand?

I think it's hard to fill the seats to northern Spain. Vigo/La Coruna, Oviedo or Bilbao are good places but there is not enough demand I think.
LGW-BIO and MAD-BIO could work but the rest of Europe?

Bring on Zante, please! From UK this is a cash cow during summer!

MXP-BIO
Would there be enough demand?
I think there would be, Alitalia were flying 3 times a day with ERJ145 and ERJ170s, until Alitalia Express was closed.

Ryanair fly from Santander to Bergamo.

The Alitalia flights were full of business pax, they could also sell this as a winter sport route due to the proximity of the Alps to MXP, and Venice is not that far away too.

If EZY don't take the route I think Air Nostrum will , with a 2x daily on weekdays and 1x a day during the weekends.

Agree on the GVA-BIO ( maybe not such a great idea with a A319)

Still very surprised about MAD-BIO, they really could make money on this one. Only Spanair offer OW fares on the route at a mor expensive price,and Iberia are much more expensive and don't offer a lot of flexibility , plus T4 is too big for such a short flight.

I think Vueling/clickair fly the BIO/LGW route on behalf with Iberia.
BIO-MAD was operated by Vueling some time ago and they stopped it, so there is not enough demand.
Ryanair is about to expand in Santander, probably a new base there so.

The last days EZY flew from SXF to CDG and not to ORY. Normally there are 3 daily flights from SXF to ORY. Why did they fly to CDG?
Today and the next days EZY will fly trice daily ORY again.

I think it was something to do with strikes - don't know who but I am sure there were strikes at ORY and a number of U2 flights have been heading into CDG to minimise disruption over the past few days.

U2 are known for doing this - most notably at CWL when the BRS runway was far from safe. Saves cancelling flights as other airlines would most likely do.

Seljuk22,

All the info was on easyjet.com.

Ground handlers industrial action at ORY.

It's that time of year; on both sides of the channel!

MXP lists EZY for flights to FRA, MUC

This is from Seljuk at airliners.de:

Strecken-Gerüchteküche: Slotanträge, Flurfunk etc. - airliners.de - Forum

Try for yourself: Check MXP-FRA and MXP-MUC
on the schedule, clearly in there from Jan-Mar 2010.

http://www.sea-aeroportimilano.it/en/malpe...s&to=volare

Both twice daily. Interesting, would be the first EZY flight
from FRA ever. Or just the MXP IT-Crowd ()
playing a little joke on us.
No sign of this yet at easyjet.com, or FRA's
website, they list only LH in Feb10.

Presumably, this is still incomplete?

...BFS/LPL shown as slashed to only two flights per day (and one on Sundays).

Would appear that only the schedules for the BFS-based aircraft have been upoaded - the LPL schedules are still only loaded to the end of June 2010. I would expect that the route will continue at the spring levels (i.e. five a day mid week, six on a Mon and Fri, and four or five of a weekend).

Just checked the EZY website again and it says the remaining S10 schedules will be released on 2 November 2009.

A321's

Hi, my first post but I do read the threads quite a lot.

Could someone please enlighten me with on situation with the A321's. From what I can understand the ones they currently have are for sale with BAE? So after these have gone, will they be getting replaced with new A321's in easy the spec or will the replacements for these be part of the 10 remaining A320's to be delivered. But then on jethros it says there is an order for 2 x A321 which are then to be sold on so I'm guessing these were ordered by GB? If they are sold on is Monarch a potential customer because where they short of one this year so leased an Astraeus 757?
Sorry if there are lots of questions I’m just trying to get my head around things

Also, any news on expansion from MAN?

Thanks

easyjet_A321 - welcome along.

I would make an educated guess that Monarch would be the A321 customers - they seem to be the only people buying them these days, although as they will be fresh off of the blocks they may get sent anywhere! But my interprtation is that is it a done deal.

MAN is up in the air at the moment. It is certain that there will be expansion at the airport but it may differ from their origional plans as other factors such as LTN and the recession have made changes to their plans. I would like to think that as they reduce frequency at LTN, they move some more up north to MAN. They origionally planned to have 5 aircraft at MAN by 2010 and double that at LPL down the road but I don't see that happening somehow, the latter that is.

As I say, all up in the air and now a days, its when the aircraft actually touches down at MAN that we can be sure the services start.

Can anyone confirm whether Easyjet have ever served Bratislava? I thought at one point that they did from one or 2 points in the UK?

Found this on Google:

Bratislava, October 1, 2006 (BratislavaGuide.com) - The UK-based low cost carrier EasyJet discontinued its flights from London to Slovakia's capital Bratislava on October 1, the airline confirmed to BratislavaGuide.com.
"We have now ceased operations to Bratislava," a press spokeswoman for EasyJet told BratislavaGuide.com in response to an email query. "Unfortunately it was not financially viable," she added.
The scheduled flights to Bratislava Milan Rastislav Stefanik Airport had started on December 8, 2004 from London, Luton and as a part of the low cost carrier's expansion into Eastern European destinations. The flights were very popular especially with the British stag crowd.

There were flights between SXF and BTS
Other destinations that have been tried (and subsequently rejected) by easyJet since opening the base in 2004 include Bratislava, Krakow, Ljubljana, Maastricht/Aachen, Newcastle and Valencia. The Bratislava route, started in November 2004, was originally planned as double-daily but frequencies rapidly melted away and the route was chopped after just five months to be replaced by Maastricht/Aachen which had a near identical sector length. This route fared slightly better but was still axed in January 2007 after less than two years.
