Saturday many cancellations in Berlin, big articles in Berlin about too few pilots and angry passengers at SXF. Especially in Berlin we had many cancellations, Im sad that easyjet is getting a bad reputation, but I have to admit that theyre getting worse and worse.

In the grand scheme of things, the number of cancellations are a mere drop in the ocean. When taking a step back and looking at the whole operation, one needs to bear in mind the size of the flying program. CFMU reveals that there are 1086 flight plans filed today with an EZY callsign. Even if 10 flights were cancelled then that just represents 1% of the whole network.

As an aside, there was a Air Italy B763 operating for easyJet out of LGW yesterday. Are we going to see more ACMI aircraft being drafted in over the summer???

Why don't Ryanair cancel many flights??

Yesterday in Dublin Airport all Ryanair flights were delayed.

Some flights were delayed between 40mins & 1 hour but a lot had between 3 hour & 4 hour delayes and not one of them was canelled.

Ryanair ioperate more flights than EZY and carres more passengers and they have very few cacelled flights.

London Gatwick - Toulouse was another one of EZY cancelled flights yesterday.

Looking at the EZY website's flight departure checker for today, it is showing 23 flight cancellations.
Is that good or bad ? & how does it compare to other operators for today?

RyanAir has enough crew and the employees are afraid of their management. That's why they don't cancel nearly as often.

If your going to run an airline you need crew to fly the a/c. EZY should have enough crew to fly all routes. Cancelling 23 flights today can't be justified.

FR cancelling whole reams of flights when other airlines are operating can't be justified either. Remember the end of the ash cloud scenario? Or the occasions when FR have diverted and the aircraft has departed back to it's destination without waiting for passengers to be bussed over thereby "cancelling" the flight.

The Ach Cloud has nothing to do with it all airlines in Europe had to cancel flights.

If the aircraft diverted it was for a good reason and mabye it couldn't depart for the destination it was due to go for the same reasons it had to divert in the first place.

I sure EZY done the same thing. THe Ash Cloud was totaly different and why are there 23 flights cancelled today when there is no Ash Cloud???

Cool No crew

They are bound to be cancelling as they do not have enough crew and its been known for months.

My first post, after reading the Airlines, Airports & Routes topic for a long time.

Last week monday 12th my EZY flight MAD-AMS was cancelled, after 2 gate changes and around scheduled departure time. The poor woman from Servisair/Menzies at the gate could only tell that it was because of crew shortage. No further information, just 'this flight has been cancelled'.
Directly rebooked to KLM, so didn't even wait for the mess at the service desk. When asking about EZY at MAD I was told this happens way too often.
And yes, day after, a relative of mine took the same sector.. cancelled again. The morning flight was delayed from 11AM to around 7PM and as he was one of the first in line at the service desk he could rebook to that delayed flight.
Needless to say, especially combined with the chaotic mess during check-in at AMS on the AMS-MAD, easyJet has declined significantly on my favourite airline list..

Also online at Easyjet leaves hundreds of Berlin passengers grounded - The Local

Maybe I was lucky with just a 50 minute delay the weekend before last into LPL.

On the way out they were flying a UK employee out to SXF to work on a flight to from Germany to Greece.

Next time I will seriously consider KLM via AMS.

EZY seemed to have made the transition from happy go lucky everyone likes Stelios and that nice Jane from the TV show let's fly with them

to

Well at least Ryanair actually turn up, bugger EZY

Here in Spain, a lot my colleagues and friends have abandoned EZY and direct flights in favour of connections to their destinations because they simply can't rely on them when previously they've been excellent

EasyJet 'less punctual than Air Zimbabwe

Data compiled by Gatwick, the airport that is easyJet's largest base, show that fewer than 50pc of its flights from the airport took off on time last month.
In June, 48pc of easyJet's international flights departed on time within 15 minutes of its advertised schedule. That was worse than Air Zimbabwe, which managed 50pc on time, and considerably worse than British Airways, which hit 85.7pc. The revelation will stoke the furore about the state of easyJet's operations.
In January, 61.8pc of its international flights were on time. In February the figure was 60.1pc, in March 68.5pc, in April 74.2pc, in May 54.4pc and in June 48pc. Over the same period, BA's worst month was 76pc, and its best was 93.5pc. On domestic flights, the picture is similar. Just over half of easyJet's UK services were late taking off in June, the figures reportedly show.
EasyJet yesterday blamed the fall-off in performance on air-traffic control problems on the Continent. Greek, French and Italian air-traffic controllers have staged periodic strikes this year to protest against government austerity plans.
"There have been 40 strikes so far this year. We are disproportionately hit because most of our flights go over the affected airspace," said a spokesman for easyJet. Late-arriving aircraft meant knock-on effects on the schedule, he said.
EasyJet is recruiting more staff at Gatwick in an attempt to improve its performance.

Some of what is happening at Easyjet is of their own making BUT there is also an element where Stelios because he refuses to cowtow to the city types who run UK PLC businesses is as the major shareholder getting the flak.
