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.

You should get yourself on an International from GLA and see that we are more than capable of pulling in the retail up here.

Our ALC, AGP, FAO, IBZ and PMI are lucrative routes which are consistently selling out of most bar products. The only reason why the rest of the network doesn't see this is due to the amount of domestics we operate, therefore bringing the sph down.

GLA now has no direct competition with the exception of overpriced charter and ryanair down the road at PIK!

Placing an extra 319 or 320 would make economic sense. Regardless of where it comes from, its going to make money from the word go. Thousands of people are looking to rebook for S10, and my bet is they would rather pay easyJet the money.

Cheers

The 319 does have greater range than the 320, provided engine power is sufficient. The 319s have 22k engines and the 320s, 27k engines, but the 320 APS weight is only about 1 1/2 tonnes more than the 319.

Thus it is an airfield performance problem that prevents the 319s going to the Canaries, the Greek islands, Cyprus and Egypt, at least if you don't want to make it a 4 sector day!!

I notice that Easyjet has canx yet more flights today. The w/x is a major factor I know but I believe that the company will cancel if the outbound flight is unable to make it back. A few days ago I came back from Pfo both ends of the route had open airports and yet Easyjet canx? Why? Other airlines did not. On talking to others I realise that the company will not commit if the a/c will not rtn. This I have realised, as have many of my friends, is a very good reason not to travel with them in times of adverse w/x. At least the legacy airlines do try,and will bend over backwards to get you there even if a little late. Maybe BA should highlight this point.

Having posted this I now find the Easyjet communications manager on BBC News. He said they were doing everything in their power, & they "might" charter in extra capacity. do Easyjet ever do this? The newscaster was not very convinced and neither was I. Easyjet take your money and fly you on a certain flight but beyond that if things go wrong you are on your own. That was the impression given by News 24. Millions saw it & will draw their own conclusions

Its because they have gotten rid of so many crews and are now operating on a skeleton crew numbers, one daythey might pull there heads out of their arses and get it right for a change!

The easyJet A319s are limitted to 66 Tonnes (some are 64). This saves money on landing fees and keeps cost low for passengers...hence its range is more limitted

I'm sure it would too, but given EZY haven't expanded at GLA for years, I wonder if there is still a continuing problem with charges, or they just want to sit tight and wait to see if BAA end up being made to sell the airport, presuming they'll get a better deal from new owners.

Nevertheless, if they can get any kind of fee deal at all it would seem a no brainer to come in and replace some of the GSM routes. TFS in particular operated virtually daily on a 738, was I believe consistently over 90% full and, going by whenever I looked, not cheap either!

FR have also I think left some city routes at PIK recently to focus on EDI, but they operated for years from PIK and I'm sure would work from GLA - FCO, PSA, maybe DUS, etc.

Ben-keghead,


You also have 68 tonnes aircraft in EZY.

All these delays do not have anything to do with low crew level as earlier stated but purely based on lots of delays from closed runways/lack of of equipment in the UK.

What amazes me is that the UK just don't seem to cope at all once you see the slightest snowflake in the sky and the whole country come to a standstill. Will this country never learn? Go else where to Europe and see heavy snowfall and 20 minutes later runway is open again.

Today no snow in LGW but of course most of the aircrafts had to de ice and you then have to wait for several hours because they do not have enough de icing trucks

Does anyone know roughly when the next batch of seats will go on sale?

I'm wanting to book flights to/from ACE at the tail end of next summer, the outbound is available but I as of yet can't book the inbound (first week in October).

We booked the same period at roughly this time last year without any problem.

Isnt STN - FUE operated by a 319, is this the edge of its performance.

When MAN gets all 5 units based in early/mid 2010, do we know yet if they will be perm 5xA320's or will it be mix 319/320?

I asked my daughter, she is Manchester based Easyjet cabin crew, and she seems to think that its 4xA320 plus 1 A319 from East Mids.

I believe this is the case also, but it could be 5 A320's...

For flip sake easyJet have announced the closure of EMA which has 3 buses, because its was below "critical mass", so why would they even consider opening a base at Bournemouth for 1?
