Liverpool, except Sunday when it originates in Stansted.

They will be operated as W-patterns (LPL-GVA-LBA-GVA-LPL, or STN-GVA-LBA-GVA-STN).

Wanna Be There MAN's 6th Aircraft has already been spoken for with the current schedule and apparently PMI is all that will be launched next Summer.

TSR2. Allocated seating is still being discussed. Obviously, to launch a new fare with added perks couldn't be launched advertising allocated seat selection if it is still under consideration.

Thanks for that information.

Personally I would have thought that if seat selection was a possibility in the near future, they would introduce it at the same time as the flexible fare.

Amendments after flight cancellation - confirm not working

Some of you might be aware we did't have a great time today with EZY here at GVA. I have another ticket to BHX tomorrow, so should be ok. But I also had a LTN ticket for today (ironically already a "left-over" from an earlier LGW cancellation), which I now can't change to a LTN flight tomorrow, the process on the website is normal right untill the "Confirm all Changes" button which is not active. After what happened today, I'd like keep my two options open. Oddly, most LON flights tomorrow are only some 110-130 CHF, which looks rather moderate on such short notice.

Easy flights cancelled for tomorrow for Gatwick up til 10.00. Is this because they refuse to pay for de-icing?

It take a lot of time to de ice around 30 or so EZY aircraft.

SARK,

Do you seriously think that it will help flying after 10 am with cold soaked aircrafts and temperature forecasted to be below freezing all day?

EZY policy never skips de-icing in order to save money if that is what you are suggesting

In fact we are encouraged to de ice if we have the slightest concern whether to de ice or not.

The reason given by the ops department is: LGW is forecast to encounter 15-25cm of snow tonight and first thing tomorrow morning. We have been in close contact with Gatwick Airport Limited. Their own predictions support this forecast and suggest it is likely to have severe impact on airport operations. Consequently, we have decided to cancel all first wave departures from LGW tomorrow morning.

Whilst cancellations are not desirable, taking a proactive approach to cancellations means that we are able to communicate this to customers and crew before travelling to the airport, so avoiding difficulties of travel and disruption at the airport. From our discussions with GAL, it is likely that other airlines will follow this approach.

There will be a BDT meeting at 0600 tomorrow morning to decide if further cancellations at LGW will be necessary later in the day. The aim throughout the day will be to decide any further cancellations with at least 4 hours notice.

Are you for real?

As Jamie2k9 has said, it takes time to de-ice 30 aircraft, not to mention its more than quick spray of fluid, to brush off your talking 20 minutes (which is hard work), followed by a quick spray before depature which will take 10 minutes roughly depending if there was more snow.. Even if they do say blast it off with de-icing fluid, your talking 20 minutes and probably close to 1000ltrs of fluid.. add in the time for re-filling a de-icing rig and its chaos.. especially when theres a limited supply of de-icing rigs.. most rigs hold between 2000-4500ltrs of fluid, so anywhere between 2-4 aircraft per re-fill, not to mention the reheat time and refueling of diesel....

So Easyjet cancel all flights until 10:00 from Gatwick but it hasn't snowed and Gatwick is open. Nice one Easyjet.

With the start of the AMM route will the crews night stop there or will it a 'there and back' flight? if it's the latter won't the crew be out of hours considering it's a 5 hour flight both ways?

Me thinks a few eggs on faces for the decision to cancel all flights until 10 am at Gatwick just because they thought they might be snow when all other airlines operating normally! Oh Dear - as Lutonman said Nice one but some will not be going to Nice!

Let's hope not.
From my own past EZY experience they take a VERY proactive approach to cancellations.
