I too work for Easyjet...................but i don't own the airline and I speak using facts.

FACT: DSA is the main airport for Doncaster!

FACT: DSA is not an Easyjet base. As others have clearly stated.........
-There are no Easyjet employed ground staff
-If you take a flight from DSA your crew will be LPL based(supplemented by MAN)
-There isn't a crew room or other administrative means that are the fabric of an airline base.
-Take a look at this months inflight magazine. Easyjet Bases are indicated by a large DOT. Airports served by Easyjet but not a base are indicated by a small DOT. DSA has a small DOT. FACT!

Blimey, can't we just be grateful Easyjet is serving DSA rather than going into these pedantic arguments.

LGW-NTE? Fancy that...and with flyBe having just announced the route to start too!

Methinks it isn't going to be too long before some carrier or other begins to ask questions at EC level about whether EZY is, perhaps, 'abusing' its dominant position at LGW?

I'd love to see some figures - but am guessing that in terms of flights volume etc EZY at LGW is now bigger (in equivalent terms) than BA at LHR in terms of percentage total volume of weekly departures?

And?

I said "I dont consider" meaning it is my personal opinion....and I work there. And I hate this, "3rd busiest UK airport outside London" Why not include the london airports and say it is the 7th busiest UK airport?
And if you also look i mention other airports such as Bristol and Newcastle.
Like I say, just an opinion
Exactly it is your opinion, factually wrong but its your opinion.

As for London you did not mention London in your post and thats why I didnt include them.

Bet CityJet aren't the happiest that not one but two airlines are now going to destroy their London to Nantes monopoly.

@dwlpl

Not sure how my own personal opinion can be incorrect but hey. Like I say, I work at Liverpool airport and I dont consider it to be one of the main ones in the UK. I would of course like to see that change, but at the time, I, as do others who have agreed with my opinion, do not see it this way.

End of discussion on my part

Lgw / Nte

For the peak summer period (mid july to early sept) the London / Nantes route was really lacking of seats
... now with a daily EZY flight added, we are back to a normal offer on the route.
- AF/Cityjet on LCY route (mainly for business use)
- Flybe + EZY on LGW route

Anybody know what they have planned for the Dsa aircraft over the winter? I see the routes are up for sale, no palma, prague and faro at a reduced frequency leaving gaps in the three rotations a day plan. Any insider knowledge outhere!?

I find it disconcerting, as someone who lives in the city and being an EZY shareholder, that you dont now the pertinent information regarding the background details of the airport.

Taking a random sample of routes, I don't find any scheduled beyond the end of October, so this only seems to be for a few bases / routes for the moment...

Flights for the winter will be progressively released as always - be patient!

Just a quick question, I saw here that some flights were canceled for tomorow from Luton. For example the morning flight to Belfast is canceled both today and tomorow!
Obviously not due to the ash cloud this time so just wondering if this is still due to Andy Harrison "brillant" new rostering system?
cheers
