148 vs 149 seats

From memory, the exit row on 148-config is 2+2 with no window seats, whereas 149 requires 3+ 2 at the exit, achieved by tightening slightly the seat pitch in the rows behind, so the window seat doesn't block the exit.

Sorry guys, but from my Air Test records in 2001, YB,YC,YD and YF were certainly 149 seaters - the others I haven't yet got to check. YA was just before my time.

I believe the extra seat was achieved by removing a toilet (3 to 2) which allowed all the seats on one side to be shifted back and minimum floorspace around the exit created by greater leg room across 3 seats rather than an empty space beside 2 seats.

what is the stroy behind G-OSLH? Why is it an oddball and why not a G-EZJx?

Perhaps something to do with Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou's initials?

Looking at the code, it appears that it wasn't originally an easyJet spec model. (easyJet's Boeing customer code is -3V, G-OSLH was a -6Q). It was probably destined to go somewhere else and already registered or soon-to-be-registered, and then was taken by easyJet at the last minute. It only stayed in the fleet for two years, much shorter than the other now-departed -700s.

(Edited to add... 6Q is Bouillion Aircraft Leasing. Maybe a lease to cover for slower-than-expected delivery in the rest of the fleet or something of that nature? I don't know, just a guess.)

Maybe I should posat this in spotters corner

But

Were the eyebrow windows on Easy 737s ( which I had never noticed til my nice shiny 1/200 model was delivered today) a spec item as I thought they were deleted on 737NGs?

They were omitted from new-build NGs from some point in the mid 2000s. Not sure exactly when but think it was around 2005. Earlier NGs still have them.

This was registered at the time the announcement of the easyJet acquisition of Go. It is supposed to reflect GO and Stellios Haji Iaonnou initials no idea where the "L" fits in though.

With regards to SLH, the speculation is just about accurate. I did the acceptance on the aircraft at the same time as two of the EZY spec aircraft. It was originally destined for another compnay who delayed acceptance, with a result that it was not to the same spec - this one WAS a 148 seater. I was told that the registration reflected Stelios' full initials.

BE has been following round Eastern, Manx2, Blue Islands etc. for some time but now it seems, it is time to play with the big boys!

I wonder how they end up when U2 gives them a seeing to?

since people are quoting fares and start dates, is IOM-LPL definite or is this all still at the stage or rumour?

Rumour...until you see it on easyJet.com

Looks like EZY could be once a day IOM, 5 days a week, LPL with 319, but not confirmed yet.
