Well then lets just do it on Operating profit so excluding one offs

In this case Ryanair made 1.58 per passenger, Easy still at 1.

And next year ryanair have to cut fares by 3 euros per pax in order to fill another 15% more seats. easyjet may be able to riase fare as they serve main airports. We are at the point were I think Easyjet will become more profitable and Fr head towards making a yearly loss. As I have said they haev too much cash to go under it is just thepile will shrink.

I was recently looking through the Spanish airport operator AENA's consolidated timetable for Madrid and noticed that it showed a scheduled easyJet flight (EZY5474) to Stansted - on a Saturday, departing 0730 - but no other easyJet flights to Stansted or any at all from Stansted to Madrid.

My immediate thoughts were: Has easyJet been operating from Madrid to Stansted without my knowing?!; How odd to operate a route in one direction only and with only one flight a week!

After giving it some consideration I have concluded that this flight may have to do with rotating the 319 fleet at the Madrid base for maintenance purposes and that seats were probably not sold on these flights. Either that or there were errors in the AENA timetable.

I ought to add that this timetable was for the summer season and so it is impossible now to check on easyjet.com whether it was possible to buy seats on these flights. The operational dates given by the AENA publication were 4 April to 24 October.

Can anyone throw light on this?

P.S. The timetable shows Luton-Madrid as a 737 operation - except on Saturdays when it was a 319. So presumably, this replaced the 319 which would have flown to Stansted earlier in the day. Why Stansted and not Gatwick or Luton......?

Thumbs up

seat62k

Nope, easyjet have never flown STN-MAD or MAD-STN. The flight number mention sounds like it relates to a LGW flight. Flights on the Luton mix are shown as Boeings but in reality tends to end up as a mix of Airbus/Boeings.

BBC News - Easyjet apologises for photoshoot at Holocaust memorial

Easyjet has apologised after fashion photographs shot at the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin were published in its in-flight magazine.
In the pictures, models pose in designer clothes among the concrete blocks of the "Field of Stelae".

===============

Oops is the only polite expression which comes to mind.

Sometime the best laid plans of mice and men crash and burn.

Not really to do with aviation, but how many people are 'offended' by things like this, until they're told to be 'offended' by the media. Mods do remove this if irrelevant.

Shame it is not a new route from MAN and I doubt it will affect Finnair's loads too badly considering they have a huge onward connection to Asia.

Some very 'different' routes from MAN to say the least!

Well indeed, shame it is not a new route from HEL. Why? Look at this:
Discounts for new routes from 1.9.2009.

To promote new connections, Finavia [Finnish Civil Aviation Authority] grants discounts on landing and passenger charges for new routes.
Discounts are granted to new routes for a maximum period of three years. A new route means a connection between two airports with no previous scheduled services.

Discounts at Helsinki-Vantaa airport

Discount on landing charge
1st year 90%
2nd year 70%
3rd year 50%

Discount on passenger charge
1st year 70%
2nd year 50%
Didn't they know about it @EZY?
There still exist a few easyJet apts with no direct connection to HEL - like BSL, LYS, SXF(!!!)...

I was going to say, maybe HEL from MAN, LGW and CDG are just tester routes and then more destinations maybe opened up.

LGW is already not tester route, cause it exists for a year and it's load factor is 10% above the plan - Press release - Helsinki-Vantaa - Airport I think it is the real reason of CDG-HEL and MAN-HEL routes to be opened. SXF could be very successful destination from HEL and the granted discount is one of the reason.

East Midlands?

If my maths brain is still alive, I calculate that the 90-day consultation
period ends this week and was wondering if a final decision has been
made?

The last time I checked they are still selling the East Mids flights
beyond 10/01/10 with warning that the flight might be cancelled.

The cynical ones amongst us will say the decision was already made before they entered into the "consultation period" It is merely the official announcement of the fact that is awaited!
