Nothing to do with Easy, I suspected they are a little pi$$ed at their name being linked to this.

Well, a certain dame should be able to ensure generous airtime to EZY to (correctly) clear their name from the particular media organisation in question. Isn't irony a marvelous thing!

I've been thinking about easyJets future a lot recently, partly prompted by the posts in this thread and discussions about its position in Stansted, which all have a point but seemed unnecessarily negative to me.

What do people think easyJets future might look like? To stick my neck out...

-It is very cash rich
-It likes a leading role in markets (which is only sensible for marketing), but it's hard to acquire these with organic growth in a developed market
-It is sensible for it to grow a little...
-... but in a low risk way as investors do not universally agree
-It seems to have lost the golden touch when it comes to organic growth
-It needs to not become an Air Berlin with no place in either low cost or premium markets
-It has the organisational ability to deal with mixed fleets and to successfully integrate acquisitions

-In view of most of the above Jet2 would be a great acquisition?

EasyJet Airbus really fleet isn't compatible with Jet2 for there to be an effective acquisition which is highly unlikely in my opinion.

I think Monarch would make better sense for them than Jet2, purely for the scarce peak slots at LGW and LTN.

Acquisitions are notoriously difficult to do successfully, although managers always try to tell us how well they are doing. It's very easy to destroy value rather than create it, so to proceed with an acquisition, the purchaser must have a very clear strategy, which is supported by the acquisition.
In the case of EZY buying GB, they were buying slots and routes at Gatwick, not the aircraft.
I tend to agree that EZY would be more likely to buy Monarch for its routes and slots at LGW, LTN and MCR than for its fleet. A purchase of Jet2 would give slots at STN, NCL, GLA & BHX that EZY don't want, or don't need to buy. They certainly don't want the Jet2 fleet.

I agree Monarch would be the better choice...

I`m surprised both easyJet and / or Jet2 havent snapped Monarch up already...

It's not just Jet2/Monarch - but you could also add Meridiana/Volotea/Croatian/Alitalia and even parts of the Norwegian network if they start to retreat from SH.

Unless they've got slots at constrained airports, why buy these airlines? Just go and park your tanks on their lawn...

Not sure if I am misreading or not but the latest batch of job vacancies on the EasyJet website includes pilots with A320/A330/A340 type-rating for ops from LTN / LGW and 'Portugal'. What's that all about?

Parking tanks on lawns isn't easy's forte, that's certainly more Ryanair's territory. Hamburg the latest example of that...

I believe the type rating for pilots might be the same or similar for all 3 aircraft types. I think there is flight deck commonality between those aircraft.

And appear to have promoted reasonable demand. Think previous tour op SOF ventures from Scotland never came to much. Suspect doing well with inbound rather than using it just as a 'ski route'
