And who's favourite to take over the helm? Will it be, by default, external? These outfits have unique & special company cultures. The newsboy/gal for the outside will need quite an indoctrination/transition period. It's not a chocolate factory or making plastic toys.
Has been reregistered

Was Cyprus unhappy they did not get the EU27 base, I thought it was Malta or Portugal who were likely bases as well?

I think you will find that Famagusta is on the Turkish held part of the island!

Unaccompanied child taken off EasyJet plane and left at gate after flight is overbooked - Independent.ie

Puzzled by this as thought unaccompanied children were not allowed.

I'm always curious in events like these, who does what? Was this decision made by the handling agent; was there captain involved; is there an ez manager at LGW who authorised this, or was it by phone to LTN?
Are pax allowed on jump seats? I just think back to days of yore when captains could solve many problems with discretion and a huge dose of common sense. I don't wish to pre-judge and be in error, but we hear many stories where things like this are cropping up quite often. Has captain's authority been eroded so much, or are they not trained in such matters, or are they not sticking their heads above the parapets?

Unaccompanied children and those in groups

Children aged 13 or younger

Children aged 13 years or younger cannot travel unless they are accompanied by an adult who is at least 16 years old and who will take full responsibility for them.

Please note: The person accompanying an Italian minor travelling with an Affido must be at least 18 years old.



Children aged 14 to 15

Children aged 14 to 15 can travel on their own provided that they are not travelling with children aged 13 years or younger.



Children aged 16 and over

Children aged 16 years and over can travel on their own.


-----------
Had assummed all under 16's were banned from solo unaccompanied flying

Wasn't there a time when not overbooking was something certain low cost airlines advertised as one of their benefits? I thought one of those was easyJet?

This example seems particularly silly in terms of both basic morality and the obvious PR disaster.

Easyjet have been overbooking for more than a couple of years on basis of flexible tickets and people not showing up.

I suppose they've calculated that they can make £xxx extra per flight this way (I doubt it's as much as £xxxx) and that they don't think it'll cause that amount of ill will and bad publicity per flight.

I feel they might have that one wrong.

Overbooking is one thing; that's more than the max number of tickets being sold. However, with seat allocation it seems that a seta was allocated twice for the same flight. Surely this process was computerised. Howe is that possible? Or was there the dreaded human hand intervention? From the newspaper story, as published, it does suggest the rejected child passenger was not treated as sensibly as should have happened. He should have been 'kept under wraps' until an alternative flight was found. The airline screwed up it was their obligation to sort it out and take responsibility until it was. It would be slightly different for an adult.
What is ez's attitude to using cabin jump sets to solve problems? e.g. a broken seat that is deemed unusable at the last minute. Fly the pax, or off-load?

3 A320 were delivered the last days:

G-EZRM 25th July
G-EZRK 26th July
G-EZRL 27th July

In total the fleet consists about almost 280 aircraft.

Will be hard for EZY to base additional aircraft at airports like LGW, LTN, AMS, LIS, ORY or SXF in the near future due to lack of slots / lack of terminal capacity.

Any rumours about new bases e.g. Nantes, Bordeaux, Lille, Bilbao, Vienna or even Zurich ?

Surely Vienna has to be the top of that list, and maybe one or two French cities - could you even add Nice to that list? Wouldn't surprise me if more aircraft were put in Venice. Also what happened to Birmingham?
