Thank you for your interest in joining easyJet.

Our requirements for 2010 have been met and all recruitment activities are complete.

I gather from this if they are short of crews, they cannot type enough in time for summer.

Something odd going on with the route map - line going from Gatwick to nowhere, any ideas?

Thanks for this Basil. Dont suppose theres anything else loaded into the system is there. You say this is a BFS aircraft, there seems to be spare capacity in the MAN based units so I presume EZY have something planned for them if they still need another W pattern

Ezy Ncl-stn

Does anyone know if the suspension of the NCL-STN route on 31/10 will be a seasonal thing or is is a full scale withdrawal of the service?

I am sorry to see that the NCL-STN route is being dropped. I have used this route since the days Gill operated it. I last used it from NCL on Sunday 30th May when the aircraft was full, and returned on Sunday 6th June, when the load was 110 passengers. So there is a demand on this route. Over the years I have flown loads have always been good.

EasyJet's dropping of NCL-STN is just more proof (if any were needed)that they have totally abandoned the NCL base. In a year's time I imagine there'll be a press release saying the base will close as yields have fallen, despite just a couple of years ago sayingit was one of their best performing bases. Hardly any wonder as they have dropped loads of routes.

But this is foolish. Newcastle is not actually near anywhere. If I wanted to fly cheaply then I would have to drag myself to EDI or LDS and of course petrol or trains aren't cheap.

There was a time that the dropping of the route would have upset me, but as Easy have lost interest in NCL I have lost interest in them (I'm sure they'll get over it ).

Bearing in mind the additional costs of going to other regional centres such as those I mentioned above, it is just as cheap to go with KLM or BA - they don't charge a fortune for a cup of tea, there's no unseemly scramble for seats and I don't have to worry about baggage fees.

Cheerio EasyJet - nice knowing you.

With EZY potentially freezing fleet size at current numbers (if Stelios gets his way) then I imagine it'll be bases like NCL that they'll close to 'fund' the new base due to be announced soon (LIS/CPH or BCN)

Is this the "official" rumour inside EZY - that LIS, CPH or BCN will be announced as new base in the near future?

Haven't heard anything specific regarding a base at CPH, but EZY have in the last year been expanding their operations from CPH and from what I hear they are quite satisfied with their operations and development here. With the CPH SWIFT LCC terminal to open in October (and Ryanair rumoured to start a base at that time) it might be the right time for EZY to go for a dedicated base at CPH.

I think you are getting confused with the Astraeus 757 (G-OJIB). That is being painted in EZY colours and will start ops from LGW I think its the 14th June.

Titan are leasing their 767 (G-POWD) to EZY from early July. When it comes to a Titan a/c in Easyjet colours. I think the closest you will get to that is a easyjet sticker.

I dont think Titan have ever painted one of their aircraft into another airlines colours during a lease.

A friend of mine went for a crew interview with EZY at LGW back in April.

He has been told he has got the job but no training courses until October.

Well, there are plenty of rumours inside EZY but that one is a consistent one.

Here's a portuguese news article that seems to know a thing or two. I'd quite like a CPH base.... very efficient airfield, nasty storms there two mornings ago tho!!

Lisbon shortlisted for easyJet base

Good service

I can't find a link on the easyJet website to provide some feedback to them, so felt this site to be appropriate.

My wife and I were booked on the EZY7207 from LPL to BCN on 6th June. The flight was subject to a 2 hour delay due to the aircraft suffering a tech. delay in BFS, with a result that the flight crew had gone out of hours. A replacement captain was required to drive from Newcastle to Liverpool to take the aircraft to BCN.

After all passengers were boarded at LPL, the captain entered the cabin and provided a full and detailed explanation for the delay and provided his apologies. In the light of a lack of clear information regarding the delay prior to this, the fact that he had taken the time to stand up in front of the passengers was extremely well appreciated by all.

It may be a small gesture, but an apology and explanation face - to - face means an awful lot and I know that both my wife and I were extremely impressed by his professionalism which reflects very well on the airline. My wife commented that she would be more than happy to fly anywhere with the captain as she had great faith in him afterwards.

What makes this more noticeable is that I can't remember a similar episode on any other delayed flight i have taken over the years. A great example of customer service and how to get it right.

I fear BOH will have to wait for an Easy base. Newcastle is all but being abandoned despite there being no opposition from Ryanair at all.

Word on this thread is that the Danish or Portuguese capitals are about to get a base. How true that is remains to be seen.

The regions of Britain can go fish - despite the bases in the provinces and regions doing well. Easyjet falls into the trap that only flights from capitals are economically feasible. How sad - how shortsighted!
