Yesterday easyjet has cancelled my third flight from MXP within two months for off duty crew time when was inside finger before boarding. Now i ask full refund and 250€ compensation.

I'm a frequent flyer of Easyjet and i'm very disappointed but now it's not accettable this total no customer service, a lot of flights cancelled without reason and zero assistance to stranded pax. From now i chose others airline.

BBC News - Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou plans Easyjet revolt

The ongoing fight between Stelios and Easyjet board goes on.

The problem he has now is that the attacks on the board strategy last year and exit of board members will not have enamoured him to City fund managers and those holding Institutional shareholdings. While the family shareholding at 38% ish is a good one there is a real danger that other shareholders do not back him so effectively negating any attempt at using the holding to influence the board.

Leading shareholder / original owner V Board / Later shareholders do not tend to work out in anybody's favour and hurt a company in the long run.

Ultimately I see Easyjet being taken private and delisted if Sir Stelios wins as experienced Airline hands at Senior level will not seek to work for Easyjet where they have to look over shoulder at someone's whim / ego.

Board uncertainty has no immediate impact on short term BUT in medium to long term will, decisions that need to be taken on investment / divestment take longer and longer where everybody fights their own position.

Its not a good position for Easyjet to be in.

If Stelios don't agree more with management please sell his stock and leave the company

If Stelios sold his entire (family) holding - 38% - the share price would collapse. That's a good reason why he doesn't.

You can thank the operations director for the lack of crew to operate, Cesare. Cor. He thinks he brilliant himself though

Try being a passenger at Bristol this winter past, I had 3 cancellations because of shortage of flight crew. I quote from a guy from Menzies " We just don't have the crew to support the operation today"

Somebody posted on another site that EZY sold the Go brand last year. Does anyone know who it was sold to?

LPL

2 - 3 flights a day are being cancelled from Liverpool, don't know the reasons, looks like it could be some consolidation on multiple flights. (?)

Does anyone know if BFS will get an A320 based? Would make good money on Larnaca / Paphos or Turkey

Just cos a base get A320s it doesnt mean than it does longer routes...

Could be used to provide extra capacity on the busier routes throughout the year

The A319 has a better range than the A320 so assuming the bigger aircraft increases the number of available destinations is incorrect.

don't easys 319s have shorter range due to a lack of centre fuel tank so maybe the base of a 320 will be for longer routes but could be used for increased capacity as well on existing services
