Amman would be a very surprising choice. I have to say that I think it is highly unlikely.

No Ian, I am talking about network cancellations.
Many flights are cancelled daily from Liverpool, Luton, Milan & other bases. This has been the situation for months, hence the leasing in of aircraft to alleviate the problems.
Manchester seems to have escaped any problems
Where the Docaster aircraft is , is irrelevant to my point.
I just don't see how they can expand their network, when they can't operate the current schedule, unless somebody can correct me.
Although I accept of course, when (if) the sunshine routes end, then maybe its more of a switch of routes for the winter, rather than an expanded network.

Mr A Tis..............the simple answer is recruitment. Certainly in terms of Cabin Crew, this year Easyjet has recruited unprecedented numbers to the extent where some of the training has had to be outsourced. Even so, the Winter is still a quieter period even for Easyjet. Some routes are seasonal and will end in October to be replaced by new routes. Crewing is currently posing challenges but it's not terminal.

Aeulad, the four routes I have mentioned have been quoted by an Easyjet manager.... HAM, GOT, AMS and SAW. There is also a member of pilot management that has been quoted as saying there is a "shock route" for MAN with a distance/flight time similar to that of SSH. HRG, TLV would not be shock destinations. AMM would though. I knew they were looking into it from LGW but to launch it from MAN aswell would certainly be unexpected.

A321 exit from EZY

In case someone would like to know this is the information we got per email today:

Many of you have asked about the exit plan for the A321 fleet. The current plan has the aircraft exiting our operation as follows:
A321 Fleet exit plan
• • •
2 exit on 06 September 2010 1 exits on 08 September 2010 1 exits on 22 September 2010
These aircraft are replaced with new Airbus deliveries so this will not show as a decrease in the total number of operating aircraft at LGW.

Easyjet arrives in Dresden

... now that is indeed great news ! Basel (even officially being the Freiburg airport) means this is a very useful domestic connection for Germany. Check the train schedule to see what kind of 'fun' that journey was on the train...
And ironically, the big new Berlin airport BER (BBI) will have a 7 months delay, officially June 2012 now, another reason why the superior infrastructure of DRS does finally get recognised. Another such 'sleeping beauty' is LEJ, actually. Now maybe some DRS flight also into the UK - how about MAN ? As the competition do only connecting flights from STN which esp for a weekend visit isn't much fun.

Dresden and Leipzig are tiny in comparison to Berlin and do not have the tourist magnetism that Berlin does. After all, there are 3.5 million people in Berlin city.

Dresden is a beautiful city, an artistic treasure, but very little known outside Germany. These new low cost flight will help inbound tourism

cesare.caldi - agree about Dresden - have spent a few enjoyable days there.
Didn't see a lot of Leipzig but it is worth a look.

Approximate populations of Berlin / Leipzig / Dresden:

Berlin - 3.4 million
Leipzig - 515,000
Dresden - 512,000

So although Berlin is much bigger than Leipzig and Dresden, none of the latter two are particularly "tiny".

@ IJM:

But don't forget that the catchment area of Dresden-Airport includes whole Saxony (approx. 4 milion), south Brandenburg (1,75 milion) and parts of Czech Republic (2 milion - approx. 10% of pax) and parts of Poland (3 milion - approx. 5% of pax).
In Berlin SXF the same, there you can count approx. 10% Polish and 5% Czech plus lots of pax from Dresden area (8 time daily bus service from Dresden City to the Airports of Berlin).

With and advanced product in Dresden and/or Leipzig (some more low-cost links) the number of pax in SXF will drop slightly. There is a lack of offer in Dresden, as a hogh demand quite exists.
So we are happy that the new link Dresden-Basel is put into service in DEC10 and hope that this is only the beginning - as I said there is a lack of low cost international routes.

In my opionion, based on advanced experience in the tourism business and airport services, the demand for flights to the BeNeLux (as business destination) is very high. Also routes from France and GB/Ireland may have success as Dresden there is known as a cultural highlight of Germany.
For the outgoing tourism (mixed with business) some major cities in Spain, Italy and Greece are necessary.
And don't forget the former Eastern Bloc, where Dresden is still today mentioned in every art and history class. The new DRS-SVO link is expanded every half year (summer 10: 2 weekly, winter 10: 3 weekly, summer 11: 4 weekly) and creating every month more pax. I'm sure that with a link to LED and Ukraine, Hungary and other eastern states would happen the same.

DSA plane

Is it true that the DSA rotation is to be withdrawn from January, and the plane freed moved to Manchester? It seems to be stated as a fait accompli on that thread.

DSA is costly with it being a virtual base - crew are put up in hotels overnight. So that doesn't help.

But it probably all goes back to Easyjet's deal with DSA's sister airport at LPL. An agreement Easyjet probably don't want to be in, given their current 'keen-ess' on MAN. It was rumoured that DSA got a virtual base to avoid Easyjet having to put an extra aircraft into LPL that would then affect their growth potential at MAN.

Which is a shame for DSA to get caught up in this, since there is potential there for a based loco now TOM have gone back to just charters. While TOM are great for places like Greece, on routes like Malaga there is room for a low cost airline. And with Jet 2 and Ryanair both happy at LBA to the north and EMA to the south, Easyjet are probably DSA's best hope for large scale growth

Though of course lets not forget nothing has been confirmed about Easyjet's future at DSA yet

Routes - certainly not
Aircraft - there has been rumours that they would have too but how true they are I don't know. It maybe that Easyjet have separate deals with LPL and MAN that requires them to add aircraft at both bases every year

There's room for more at LPL, and that's what the new owners want.
As for DSA, new routes is what I keep being told. Who knows!

If this is the case of DSA being expensive, why not just operate W routes from LPL and LTN - which seem to be rather 2nd best at the moment?
