As Whitbread PLC are based in Dunstable & Luton, I doubt Andy Harrison has needed to find a new home!

All I know of is the NCL-GVA-BOH-GVA-NCL and I'm not sure what else is operated on W's. Sorry for not being much help!

On Sunday´s I think a NCL based machine does NCL BFS STN BFS NCL. Prior to christmas on this schedule (ie winter 2009/10) this was the case when I flew BFS STN, the pilot advised that NCL Crew were working on the flight.

There are some surprising W patterns these days, On Tuesday a LGW crew did
LGW BFS BCN BFS LGW!

I wish they would do some Ws with EDI and GLA in the middle.

EDI and GLA have catchment areas which include very long travel times to the airport, which in a rational world should lead to departures in the middle of the day being particularly attractive.

New Easyjet CEO is ex Guardian (Newspaper) boss.

EasyJet to name media boss new CEO: reports - Yahoo! Canada News

The UK's bleeding-heart newspaper's ex boss is to run Easyjet.

How will all that bunny-hugging, hand-wringing angst fit with one of the harshest airlines' policies?

Do leopards change, or just get repainted a bad-taste shade of orange?

A bit like socialist politicians really I imagine, they are only socialists for all the other folk. When it comes down to them and their renumeration package etc etc . . . capitalists through and through.
Wouldn't hold out too much hope of this one being the workers saviour some might hope, just another leftie hypocrate I would wager. She won't have been appointed on a manifesto of making Easy a peoples airline for employees, that's for sure

Press articles on her suggest she is something of a go-getter with a very proactive attitude towards employee communication and a "pragmatic approach" to HR. Very much the sort of CEO that EZY need to succeed in these tough times I'd have said, though I wonder how she will get on with no previous experience in the airline business.

24 year veteran of Media now to run Easyjet.......................I just wonder whether she climbed to the top of the tree at The Guardian on merit or because of her gender given the paper's credentials.

I find it a strange appointment given the customer facing nature of the role, yes people will question MO'L position but he developed the airline to where it is rather than be a direct appointment of a successful airline.

Maybe proven wrong but seems to be an appointment by the biggest shareholder to keep control rather than one who will drive the airline forward. I just would have expected someone with a lot more customer service / FMCG in their background.

My guess is they are routes from EMA that have just been deleted as EMA is now off the route map.

re # 794
If I'm looking at the same map as orangegirl, it has to be a map error. Note that routes denoted in red are on sale and operating now. The line appears to disappear off toward Reykjavík/Keflavik. The only new route from Nice that I know of is Rome, Barcelona is getting a new route to Doncaster but I'm not aware of anything new from Prague

They usually do this (have the line pointing off the map around Iceland) when they are set to announce a new route.

In the drop down menu before (its gone now though) it had a BCN to Hamburg route that they have yet to announce.

Are these all the routes left behind from East Midlands closing?

So it looks like a new destination getting services to Malaga, Alicante, Palma, Faro and Geneva. Bets would have to be on the UK regions, surely. It is highly unlikely that any European city of origin would be launched only ont he basis of new services to the Med sun spots.

Now, they want to expand further at Manchester and can't do so unless they expand in equal measure at Peel Airports to honour the agreement between the two. They already serve Liverpool and are launching services from DSA. My memory may be dimming with age, but I think Peel own another UK regional airport which has recently lost services to all of these destinations?

One hopes that the Newcastle-based crews can find their way down the A19.

I might be putting two and two together and getting an answer of 17, but I will be interested to see whether I'm remotely close to the mark when the announcement is made.
