Stelios can appoint who ever he wants however as the bearded one showed when Virgin was a PLC there are strings attached in being a PLC and coming back in and effectively taking over while a minority shareholder has a cost.

The public way of getting rid of Easyjet board members and refusing to sign accounts undermines the professional management brought it to run the company.

This means the next set of management end up being Yes men who work to the whim of the largest shareholder than for the company as a whole and you ultimately end up undermining the whole company.

Entrepreneurs are like great football managers and players, when you leave a successful club you are best not returning to it as you may end up tarnishing the original reputation.

IF Stelios wants total control then let him take the company private and buy out the shareholders BUT in undermining the people actually running it you damage the company. At some point in time the other shareholders will decide that a single shareholding block has too much power and when that happens in a PLC you get a total block where decision paralyis takes hold.

Does this mean BOH base isnt going to happen in 2010?

There were rumours about a base at BOH

BOH has so much more to offer than DSA does in terms of wealth of the region, inbound demand, less competition than airports in the north, better performing routes (AMS and PRG did better than DSA when TFly operated them)

So ... when is it BOH's turn? Or is easyJet just plain hacked off with MAGgroup right now?

EasyJet

2 x seats to Palma and return from doncaster, total cost £181.28

Jet2 from Leeds to Palma was £362.90 before payment fees. No prizes for guessing where a loyal Jet2 customer has gone.

Edit - outward DSA - PMI 11/09/10 and return 25/09/10 - same dates used ex Leeds with Jet2.

BOH may NEVER feature in the plans of U2 - we shall see.

MAG (the 'G' stands for group btw), although EMA may not be their cup of tea, but MAN is doing well for U2.

BOH is already on the U2 schedules

U2 operate the 8 weekly Geneva service this winter in place of the easyJet Switzerland aircraft previously.

Having seen the mix of destinations from U2 at LPL and MAN, it seems they really are making using no syncing policies - they seem to simply be putting routes anywhere from each base.

With the demise of GSM there would seem to be a natural opportunity for expansion by EZY at GLA and EDI, but they seem to have been lukewarm on Scottish airports for a while. It would be odd nevertheless for EZY to sit back and let FR and the charter carriers grab all the pax.

Odd yes and I'm afraid typical

I would expect EZY to look at GLA rather than EDI as FR has made a resonable impression there. If they do look to expand, expect the longer routes like the Canaries, Egypt, Cyprus, Turkey and Egypt.

The range of the A319 is greater than that of the A320.

However, they prefer to fly more passengers over the greater distances. More revenue and certainly higher on board sales.

I was under the impression the Easyjet had longer range on their A320 than A319

To be honest, I am not sure. I know that a standard A319 has further range than an A320 but both aircraft are operational on Egyptian flights so obviously within range of both machines.

I do not know the range of the A319 as it does have an extra number of seats which U2 had fitted along with two extra emergency exits.

With a bit of effort EZY could change the LGW schedule to release 1 or 2 320's. Taking them off the shorter frequent services, Malaga, Palma etc and making these routes all 319, or 320 at popular times.

LGW needs the greater capacity. It is more lucrative for the airline to have the plane flying out of London to AGP etc. than anywhere else.

The onboard sales from LGW will also be fantastic, probably only matched by MAN.
