I'm sure as this is a forum on easyjet, everyone will be interested in how many a/c lpl will have based. You don't need to be asked a question to post a comment. Strange remark by the earlier viewer.

I'm just trying to work out what routes are still to be announced from the current S11 schedule at MAN well firstly it seems it's going to be 3 X A320 and 3 X A319. The schedule seems to be the same from Monday - Friday like same sort of times for same sector lengths but heres monday for example:

AC 1 (A319) - AMS, CPH, HEL
AC 2 (A319) - ALC, then a gap from 12:25 - 18:05 where it then goes into operate MUC. Any ideas about this route?
AC 3 (A319) - AGP, HAM, AMS
AC 4 (A320) - MLA, DLM
AC 5 (A320) - TFS, CFU
AC 6 (A320) - Not filled much for the morning rotation but usually has an afternoon rotation such as PFS. The route to go here would have to be in for around 13:00 hours, any ideas?

TBH looking at the schedule its already quite full with the exception of maybe two shorter sectors so unless theres going to be another based A320 I can't see any of these longer sectors which were rumoured earlier this year being announced.

At this early stage trying to formulate each aircrafts schedule is a futile effort. I once tried doing this well in advance of S10 and the schedule has ended up very differently. By the same token, this Winters AMS was to be followed by the SSH on certain days and this has also changed.

Expect 7 aircraft for Summer 2011.

You've missed ZRH off that list. It's been a first wave flight this summer, switches to an evening rotation for the winter; not sure what it's going to be next summer. Expect it to be on there somewhere though - as I understand it, it's done well.

From your list it would probably be the 'missing' rotation on an A319, but a midday flight won't do business people any good like an early morning or early evening flight would.

Ah, almost same time as the Swiss A320. Why they keep wanting to go head to head with Swiss & Lufthansa I don't know ( ZRH, HAM, MUC), when there are so many destinations not served from MAN.
For me, I'd chose SWR /DLH any day over EZY. Now if they operated to VIE, BIO or TXL I might be tempted (but only slightly).

...Because it is not upto individual airlines to make sure that airports have "ego boosting" networks. Whilst I find it amazing that MAN doesn't have a MAD or TXL flight, Easyjet are not in the business of providing civic pride. Hence they operate on routes that they know will make a profit. For example out of MAN EZY have increased the market to MUC and CPH and so caused little impact on your beloved LH and SK as a consequence.

Moot point if U2 have increased the market themselves to MUC since LH has reported a very large increase themselves on that route (and ordinary large increases on their other routes ex-MAN). I imagine as based units ramp up, we'll see more of what might be deemed "better" routes ex-MAN emerge.

Easyjet seem now to be focusing on larger airports which is where most of their larger growth is coming from i:e LGW/MAN and LPL which is a little bit of an odd ball
but condsidering they gave Easy a lot of their early increases is not suprising.
How much more can they increase at LGW with 43 aircraft already? Manchester should be in double figures by 2012 and I can see that increasing in the future maybe at the cost of LPL expansion which seems to have stopped

I believe what's happening is that because MAN seems to be gaining an aircraft every 6 months (or less) over the past couple of years, the expansion at LPL is hardly being noticed as it appears to be more measured.

Collectively a MAN/LPL fleet combo is going to be 22 or 23 strong by the time the London Olympics comes along. Which makes me wonder would have happened if both LPL and MAN were abandoned in the 1950s and Burtonwood used as the Northwest gateway instead.

I think most people would in terms of on-board service - I think Swiss's short-haul service is among the best in Europe, FAR better than BA - but for a lot of people price is king. With the odd exception here (there is the occasional good deal available if you book miles in advance and get lucky), Swiss just do not compete price-wise. And that's for a return - if you want to book one-way, forget it with Swiss.

I now use the easyJet flight regularly and it is invariably very well loaded, and the crew I've chatted to tell me it's like that most of the time.

Firstly, sorry if my comment rubbed people up the wrong way. I was just genuinly confused to the LPL statement as it didnt add anything to the previous posts, and apart from a small amount of hoo-ha, it wasnt going to add anything to later posts.

Anyway, it seems MAD will saty at LPL due EZY being happy with the loads from there and may not want to dilute them. BA/IB will be adding MAN-MAD soon enough anyway so all is not lost.
MAN also seems to get a new unit and 3 new routes for every winter/summer season, so we can expect more of the same.
For a levelled expansion to 10 units by summer 2012, maybe 2 units for summer 2011, one for winter 11/12 and 2 for summer 2012?

I don`t think we will se much more expansion at LPL as they are going for the big airports now, 2011 at LPL is the same as 2010 10 aircraft

Easyjet aren't necassarilly going for the big airports, they are going for the most convenient. For Liverpool, Lpl are the moat convenient, for Manchester, Man are the most convenient.

@wanna_be_there

as a lurker of the forum I found dwpl post on 1 Oct informative. Your post didn't rub me up the wrong way I just found it very confusing. Posts 1490 and 1494 didn't get such a comment however they were equally informative.

I donty understand why make a statement at all about the dwpl post on 1 Oct ?

Even more confusing was your subsequent statement saying: "it wasnt going to add anything to later posts."

Can you predict the future? Can you predict future posts.

Like I say, dwpl's post was informative, on topic and not dissimilar to previous posts.

Look, I think what I have said is being taken the wrong way and quite frankly, I cant be bothered to explain what I meant as:
1) It will still be taken the wrong way no matter how I explain it
2) It will take the forum completely off topic and the posts will be deleted anyway

So, just forget about it and lets keep it easyjet based from now on.
