Lgw W09/10

According to the easyJet press release, LGW to ZRH and VIE increase to twice daily and LGW to MUC goes to 3 daily.

Ouch. Anyone would think they were targetting Aer Lingus ....

"Ryanair may only be scheduling one flight a day right now but don't be surprised if the frequency is increased."

They have been adding a lot of new routes at 2-3 times per week, so going daily into a crowded market (Air Europa also new here as of end April) shows they mean business. But FR are never likely to want to match U2 on frequency - take a look at STN-PIK, where they used to operate upto 9 rotations, and they now just offer 3. This isn't all down to switching between the '200s & '800s. Now compare that to U2's offering from LGW, LTN or STN to GLA. High frequency might attract some business pax from legacy airlines, but I don't think those are the people FR are targetting, and not at those times. So for FR, high frequency just means lower yields from the leisure market, whereas pinching a few of U2's passengers means easy pickings.

We have just booked our family Christmas flights to TFS. Price just over double those we paid last year, booked on day one too! Looks like Easy have done their homework and see that these routes can be money spinners.

Hear hear. If it is just a coincidence that Flybe is launching DUS from LGW which is 40 miles from both CGN and DTM? Me thinks not. Both DTM and CGN had thrice daily flights in the past....

LGW - CGN has never been thrice daily with Easyjet. 2 x day is the most it has been. Germanwings dipped in and then out of this route at one point too.

A few posts with unnecessary abuse have been deleted.

One of you came close to a ban. Anymore of it and you will be banned.

MAD-LIS will become trice daily (now double daily) from November with morning flights from MAD and LIS. Therefore one a/c is over night at LIS.

I've spent quite a bit of time scanning fares over the last few days out of London for the period winter 2009/2010, and comparing them to fares over the last 24 months.

EZY seem to be rather less than generous on many of their winter routes given that for EZY the time immediately after fares go on sale usually shows the cheapest fares. Then again, there may be a planned fare sale to get winter bookings going.properly.

Ridiculously cheap fares from EZY in November and January for sectors of around 2 hours seem to be rather rarer than I had initially hoped. Guess this just reflects a change in emphasis of customer away from the bargain bin brigade.

Is EZY veering towards having a few minimal frills (with associated costs) ?

I think Easyjet is going for income above passenger numbers as it has fuel hedged pretty highly. Its working on basis that people who can afford it will still afford it and those who can't won't travel.

racedo,

EZY hasn't fuel hedged for the whole year. The fuel hedging is stopping at some point this month thereby cheaper fuel for the rest of the year provided it doesnt rise like crazy as we've seen before.

Any chance that a MAD based unit may restore a link to MAN?

Cokeman,

The spin occording to our mangement when oil was $150/barrel was that they hedge fuel on a continuous basis 'in order to smooth the price'. However if they have stoped hedging now that oil is $50/barrel then that would be par for the course

They hedged 60 % of the 2008/09 financial year requirement for fuel and therefore hedging is stopping this month if it hasn't already done so. I have heard no news of EZY hedging and I don't think any airlines are doing new hedgings at the moment but waiting to see what's gonna happen with the crude oil prices. The price for crudeoil is unfortunately going up slowly but surely everyday now passing $59.06 this morning.

Fortunately Sterling, the Euro and the Swiss Franc (Easyjet's principal currencies) have in the same period all been getting stronger against the US Dollar

The sterling might have gone up slightly the last 2 months but nothing compared to what it was 1.5 years ago. Besides worth mentioning that EZY has for this calender year "hedged" around 80% of their dollars need at £1.00 to $1.98 For once they did something right.
I seem to remember 70 % for the Euro to around £1.00 to Ä 1.57 or there abouts.
