easys A319s have a weight limitation of 66 Tonnes, some have a restriction of just 64 Tonnes, hence limiting the range....

All the EZY 319's have centre tank's and can uplift around 18,000 kg of fuel total.

As b_k say's, it usually a takeoff weight limitation. However, I think there are some in the fleet that have a 68t limitation.

Indeed there are; in fact across the fleet of A319s there are aircraft certified at 62, 64, 66 and 68t. Also not all of the A320s are certified to the manufacturer's MTOW; off the top of my head, some are 77t, some are 73.5t and I think there's some with a different limit.

Chadwicki, if you're interested, at the moment you're on G-EZTN.

Paul Simmons, easyJetís UK Regional General Manager has just said on the Liverpool Airport Webinar answering a question regarding DSA and a route to Tenerife, that 'they need the A320 but we operate the A319 out of DSA'.

I keep answering this question about range on the 319 and 320, but here goes again. The 319s have 22k engines and the 320s have 27k engines, yet the APS weights of the 319 is only about a tonne and a half less than the 320 due to the different centre fuselage section with the 2 overwings.

The reason therefore that the 320 does the longer routes is the take off performance, usually at the other end but occasionally out of UK. I did the sums for a 66k and 68k 319 on a LPL-TFS-LPL, and with a typical Canaries pax mix and all the holiday baggage it was very marginal due to performance limited take off weight - the 320 with its extra thrust eats it.

The 320 could be a bit limited even from MAN going to SSH with all the scuba gear, but seems to have gone OK so far, the 321, those left, are better on this due to even more power, but are all at LGW.

EZY452Bristol 19:40-CANCELLED
EZY266London Stansted 19:55-CANCELLED
EZY614Liverpool 20:30-CANCELLED

Seems unusual for a Sunday evening.

you still going on about crew shortages?

G-EZIM went tech this morning, and still is it was due to take out the BCN flight, which did eventually go, but with a delay of approx 6 hours on a different aircraft, the schedule was changed for the day with other aircraft taking out different flights, unfortunately the 3 cancelled flights couldn't be performed as there was no available aircraft for them

There is a severe crew shortage and it will remain so over the entire summer. But hey, you may get to fly on a 767 as we have one of those subchartered for the entire summer

Im amazed that an airline the size of easyJet and with a reputation to uphold would be careless enough to release a schedule and not recruit enough crew to operate it.

For me it's incredible, but it's the sad reality

There were/are rumours about EZY open a base at BCN but now FR will do. Anything new about EZY will open a base at BCN?
Anyone knows which airports could become a base in the near future?

Given the current issues within Easyjet at board level will it impact on opening new bases ?

There is lots of stuff on it but aside from what I posted on here from Sunday Times nobody seems to be commenting on it.

In most organisations, a boardroom row usually leads to internal stagnation and internal politicking comes to the fore.

That is my viewpoint as well and sadly its what is happening in Easyjet.

Too many B.S.Ds. preserving power positions and status does nobody any good least of all the employees.
