Is BFS and LTN the last of the B73G bases? When are they expected to transition to the MiniBus?

Some Boeings are staying is the current plan with some LTN based pilots worried they may have to convert BACK to Boeing. The plan changes all the time.

If the leases offered are favourable enough, the tractors will stay. However, it would be easier to have just one family type in the company. The bean counters will decide as usual.

Nope, All Boeings have left NCL.

Taking today as an example, 5 are BFS based, 8 are LTN based, 2 are in SEN and 1 in NWI for Maintenance.

16 left and counting.....

easyJet voted Best No Frills Airline and Best Economy Class at British Travel "Oscars"

Congrats to U2 but what intrigues me in press release was this

"easyJet is Europe's leading low-fares airline, currently operating 182 aircraft on 445 routes,"

Jethro's suggests 168 aircraft where as U2 PR Dept claiming 182........which is right ?

I know PR are supposed to glorify the company, but, unlike some companies (you know who!), they don't bullsh*t.

And on the 'leading low-fares' airline part comes from the profit the company make compared to any other EU LCC. I believe they still out whit FR?

Winning awards usually means a dinner in a hotel somewhere while wearing black tie.

If a CEO wants to win awards, they can run their business in a way that is award friendly (e.g. improve front-of-house customer service in the short term at the expense of other aspects of the company like long term investment). Alternatively where the winners are chosen by industry insiders rather than the public at large, just wine, dine and generally entertain the judges on a regular basis ! In essence, industry awards can often be "purchased".

A cupboard full of trinkets does not necessarily mean that a business is being run well overall. I'm not saying that EZY is not deserving of awards, but a good CEO should know what they are doing with their business and treat awards as nothing more than the odd nice letter in the post. Cynical rant over !

Exactly - BA win these awards all the time!

U2 is doing well - I wouldn't say they are being poorly run behind doors. I don't know that for a fact, but not only is front of house looking good but remember, as in the theatre:

Its backstage that make the show happen! And if that isn't working then the front of house won't be for too long either...

Guys not questioning the award I am questioning whether U2 have 168 or 182 Aircraft as not known Jethros to be that far out.

easyJet UK have 170 aircraft as of today
easyJet Switzerland have 12 aircraft as of today

Therefore, yes, they have 182 aircraft.

EMA

Why can I still book flights for June 2010 from EMA? Are they no longer closing this base or something?

I'm guessing they are going to announce hopefully lots of new routes from MAN seen as they pushed the release date back a few days again.

Because there has been no formal announcement regarding the closure of East Midlands as a base, they are currently still in the official "90 day consulation period" which they must legally abide by. So until that period is over, they can continue to sell flights as the base MAY not close...

Oh okay thanks I hope they keep it open! Would be good like Manchester if they got there before Jet2 with them longer routes from both airports.

Anyone know yet what's replacing the A321's? I'm pretty sure now there's only one in service at LGW.

G-TTID, -E and -F are all still in service.

As to replacements, almost certainly more easyJet specification A320s.

Maybe I should have phrased that differently, I meant on a day from what I have seen there has only been the need for one A321. Probably wrong.
