Man - GIB??

From a self interest point of view I hope they do put on a Man - Gib route. The airport there is opening a huge new terminal next spring with a direct entry into Spain and needs far more than the present 25ish flights a week so would imagine EZY would be offered good terms to extend their useage.

ZB have put an extra flight on for next summer from Man...Loads are good as its becoming the first choice for more people using that end of the Costa..Will wait and see

Also, GIB is a good entry point for cadiz and the costa, and an alternative to the busier airport of AGP.
Like you say, the only thing that lets GIB down is destination choice, and frequency.

Gibraltar Airport

Just a few observations and comments Paully and Wanna be there from a guy who lives not far from Gibraltar and uses the airport a few times a year to travel to and from the UK and crosses the border to go to Morrisons! Gibraltar has only a population of 30,000 - the Spanish do not use it on political and historic grounds. The Costa de Luz to the west of Gib is primarily a ´German´ area and world famous for its wind urfing etc. and also has a large hippy population. To the east this is where the bulk of the UK ex-pats live - some use Gib but a lot still prefer Malaga - mainly because of reliability. Gibraltar has a notorious microcosum of weather with winds and cloud which circulate round the rock. Gibraltar is a Captains only landing and there are quite a few diversions to Malaga. Also there has been a couple of high profile incidents in recent years when aircraft have tried to land in adverse weather conditions.
The new terminal should be ready by May 2011 but do not bank on it - as far as I am aware there will be no direct entry to and from Spain - you will still have to go through the present border control area. To put a further spanner in the works the Mayor of La Linea - the Spanish border town - is proposing to put a 5 Euro levy on tourists who travel between the rock and Spain citing that they go just through Lan Linea and do not spend any money in the town. The infrastrucure has been put in place even though the goverment in Madrid has told him not to do it as it is against the law to charge to go between one country and another.
I would like to see more flights into Gibraltar but I cannot see past a couple of extra weekly departures at the most. Sorry to be so pessimistic but going through the border can be a bit of a pain at times!

Cor Vrieswijk has resigned and easyJet has agreed to his early departure

Cor has finaly gone. However Warwick Brady has been appointed Director of group operations. It was summed up by one pilot as like getting rid of Blair and getting Brown...

I heard he was sacked, but I guess you have to save face a little (jump before you're pushed). I do hope it isn't a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire. Had a number of years with Warwick in Ryanair and it wasn't the most pleasurable experience. He's a nice guy, but caught up in the FR circus, he played the game. I'll definitely give him a chance in EZY as they're two totally different airlines. I just hope he's an improvement on the muppet that's now gone.

Could ezy start serving more middle eastern routes in the forseeable future. I know that Amman has been rumored but what about beirut?

With the exising Sharm then Luxor and Cairo coming on-line, more will be done to make use of the new A320's arriving. ExGib A321's should be gone soon as well so longer routes can be expected.

rising pax is not as important as the rise in revenue. Ryanair have been adding pax but not taking in more income. Easyjet seem to be getting more pax and more income to cover the extra costs.

As a sidenote: At the end of September EZY 'only' got 33 A319 and 12 A320 on order. So far 159 A319 and 23 A320 has been delivered.
In average EZY get 2 a/c per month which means by the end of 2012 there are no more a/c coming. If I'm not mistaken EZY has options for 88 A32S. Anyone heard about new orders or to make use of the options?
Is it possible to get new a/c by 2012 if you order new a/c let's say at the end of this year?

Funny that Ryanair revenue grew by in 16% Qtr to end of June with PAX numbers up by 8% while Easyjet rose by 5.3% and passenger numbers by 1.9% BUT you keep stating Ryanair always have a problem ...................Hmmmmmm

Now Easyjet is stating it will make for the full year something over £150 million for full year but ok lets assume is £160 Million over their 48.8 Million passengers which means every passenger makes them on average £3.28 profit per passenger ..............not bad, a decent return

Now given Ryanair forecasting €350-375 Million for full year 2011 lets be conservative and use the lower with Euro worth 85p on 75 Million passengers it would mean Ryanair is making 20% plus per passenger than Easyjet and thats being very conservative as think it will end close to 40% more.

Revenue means diddly squat unless your cost base is low so your continuing false premise that its FR that has the problem while everybody else is hunky dory has pretty much little if any basis in reality.

Only by taking some one else's place in the delivery slots which as you will appreciate will cost you.

It may be possible to buy someone's slots off them or if those original delivery slots have changed becauase original buyer has gone belly up then Airbus will of course be open but again its £££££.

Racedo

It appears to me that you are comparing easyjet 2010 performance with the Ryanair forecast for 2011 .... or am I missing something.

Yup thats what I am doing but could just as easily have compared Ryanair 2010 results and funnily enough it would have not made much of a difference.

Easyjet has also only given guidance on what it expects its figures to be not stated them yet.

At AGM at 22nd of Sept Ryanair would be in a position to have had a good estimate of what half year results would be and an idea of where given current trading position of where full year would be and the stated they happy with forecasts which analysts have of between €350-375 M. In Sept 2009 they were stating low €200M's for full year and delivered 50% more.

Historically they have generally been very clear, very early in stating profit problems which City of London / Wall st like because they dislike nasty surprises.

Pikey O'Leary is very good at squeezing every airport, but he is in big trouble if he loses those ca 600 M subsidies per year. Suddenly not a brilliant FY for the gypsy anymore. But then again, the taxpayers may just keep on paying for the Ryanair presence through their politicians.

Easyjet summer timetable for LGW?

Does anyone know when Easyjet will be publishing their summer 2011 timetable for Gatwick? At the moment you can't see anything after 27th March, whereas Luton has flights published after that date.

Seljuk 22 Don't forget that 17 A319's will be leaving the fleet next year at the end of their 7 year leases. The four A321's are currently in Shannon on end of lease checks and have now left the fleet, also G-TTOI arrives in SNN today for it's EOL and G-TTOJ in january. The 737's start going through SNN in March on their EOL. The fleet disposition next year will be just A319 & A320's all CFM powered.
