According to Belfast Airport Website (BFS) Easyjet have an arrival tomorrow morning Monday at 0855 from Krakow.
This looks like a charter, the flight number is EZY9784

There doesnt seem to be a corresponding flight going out to Krakow, does anybody know where this aircraft will be originating?

Following on from the previous post, what is happening to easyjet? At Bfs this weekend, there were flights cancelled yesterday to Lgw, today to Lpl and I see again to lpl tomorrow. I am also aware that a number of flights have been cancelled at LGW today. This rate of cancellations does not inspire confidence and I am a frequent Ezy user. I know that someone will come on here and quote the cancellation % and it may be low, but my perception is that Ezy are more prone to this action than other carriers. A lot of people will have their plans badly disrupted just today, you can't keep on doing that before it becomes a problem. Remember, the eventual downfall of most large companies started with one small bad decision that grew.

True Blue,

Simply put, EZY don't have enough crew - infact what is probably more true is that EZY won't pay for more crew.
Command list is chock-a-block with very experienced SF/O's and there are plenty of cadets to fill the RHS but they won't promote or recruit on sensible terms.

Things may change when Ms McCall arrives but with Cor still in place I doubt it.

Well there does appear to be up to 3 cancellations a day from the Liverpool schedules over recent weeks.
This is certainly affecting my decision on future bookings, usually one of the Paris and/or Barcelona rotations + AN other (BFS today).
They do need to explain why so many flights are cancelled on what is now a regular basis or people will just drift away.
Shame as I like the Easy product.

Cors contribution

Isnt it bizarre that an airline with all the potential of easyjet has had so many bad decisions made by a buisiness man that by all accounts would have been sacked for poor performance a long time ago! The silent assasin that is Cor. Id like to see that mans appraisal. For what can this man be commended on?

You take a successful airline and dwindle the staff numbers to the point where there is no stby cover and cancell flights on a daily basis due to this issue while continuing in your role? Thats a dream job eh! Mean while Stelios behaves like a spoilt brat throwing his props out of the pram at every available opportunity. Such a shame for an airline that should be expanding and taking advantage of these difficult times.

A great airline with great staff......ran by a bunch of buffoons( I apologise to any buffoons inadverdantly affected).

Yes you do, and to be fair I think I can understand why they do it. There's a couple of reasons.

If you keep it at a certain low-ish level you'll inconvenience a few hundred or thousand people. They may chunter about how they'll "never fly with [airline, usually BA] again", but the majority do. Remember the news footage of any past BA strike or summer of chaos and you'll know what I mean. As long as it's not at an outrageous level - ie, like hospital patients on trolleys in corridors - you won't get any real widespread public perception of a problem. Do it on routes where you've got a monopoly and you've nailed them.

So why do it? It's an accounting trick, although not necessarily good business sense.

A key business metric is revenue, and in airlines forward booking percentages. To get your reward you need to keep this growing compared to the same period on the previous year.

Likewise, costs. You want to keep these low. And you don't want this to grow every year.

So what do you do? Pitch it at the right level, and undercrew but not enough to piss enough passengers off. You book their revenue and forward booking numbers, you keep your costs low - and the money you have to splash out cleaning up after your cancellations? Ah, that goes in the "extraordinary non-recurring" section. Doesn't matter that they are daily costs at an undercrewed airline, the trends on revenue and cost are the ones that are paid attention.

Mean while Stelios behaves like a spoilt brat throwing his props out of the pram at every available opportunity. Such a shame for an airline that should be expanding and taking advantage of these difficult times.
FWIW, Stelios is behaving entirely reasonably. Easyjet are allegedly exceeding the limits of what they've paid for - the lease of the Easy brand with 75% of activity to be derived from flying. Stelios has many of his own interests under the easy brand, and doesn't want the Easyjet airline company overstepping into his patch. Very simple. And when you consider he owns what, 40-odd percent of a company capitalised at a few hundred million pounds, he can probably be forgiven for wanting to see some income from it - like a dividend, or at worst some serious capital growth, neither of which have been forthcoming. What a crybaby eh?

Easyjet is promising to unveil an “exciting technological breakthrough” to end large-scale disruption to airline passengers in the future.

The airline has called a press conference on Friday morning to reveal the innovation in light of major disruption caused by the Icelandic volcanic ash cloud.

The press conference will be attended by Easyjet CEO Andy Harrison and Andrew Haines, CEO of the Civil Aviation Authority.

See Travelmole on Friday for more details.

Easyjet is considering to operate its Orly-Berlin route only twice a day in winter instead of three times. The nascent Orly Slot is to be used for a daily service to a new destination in Germany.
I'm not sure which airport will be operated, rumours say Dresden. Although this wouldnt make sense, as AF operates to Leipzig. Maybe Hamburg or Munich, who knows?
