Mouser,

Yeah but that little bit of 'tongue and cheek' only works if LPL does actually have an alternative.
And Im very aware of your knowlege of LPL, were reminded of it everytime LPL is mentioned alongside MAN

Anyway, I digress.
Amman could well be added to MAN in the future, as easyjet's MAN route structure has similar route demographics to LGW.

Bologna/Verona wise, Easyjet havent gone into Italy from MAN, but Id expect MXP to be the first MAN-Italy route. They have applied for slots a few times for MAN-MXP, so may operate it one day

Seville, not operated by Easyjet from Liverpool, so in the Ethos that MAN will not be at the expense of LPL, and that LGW now has the route (similar in what I said about AMM) could be a route of the future?

The only reason Seville is not served from liverpool is because FR operate it and there wouldn't be a market for 2 airlines.

It will be intresting to see how Ryanair and Easyjet willl do on Seville from LGW next summer.

Easyjet and TAP Portugal has made Ryanair drop Porto at the end of March.

DommyDom, the belly aching about bases competing for aircraft at a time when expansion is slowing down is true.

Does ALC, SOF, ATH, BIA, DLM, CFU, MUC, CPH, ZRH, GVA, GOT, RAK, SSH, PMI, AMS and HAM not represent real commitment? I think it does. True, some of those routes have scheduled competition but Easyjet is in it to make money.......and on many routes, grows the market.

There is an awful lot of snobbery regarding the bucket and spade routes and those routes already operated by a "flag carrier". In effect, those "well healed" pax actually don't tend to spend very much on board which is quite important on long sectors such as AMM. In reality however, AMM in my opinion will be operated from MAN sooner or later but to totally disregard 5 aircraft growth (by Spring 2011) and 16+ new routes as non commitment is ludricrous.

Finally!

EZY orders 15 A320 (former purchase right) + an option of 33 A320. The 15 A320 will be delivered between 2012 and 2014.
A current order of 20 A319 will be converted into 20 A320.

I wonder if the new order enables a possibility to EZY to appear in VNO or KUN? They have taken over easyjet.lt domain name, which leads to some hopes and wishes ;-)

Easyjet.lt court decision

Wozik, it would be too good to be true ! What I can guess from the auto-translate of your link, I think Easyjet was just routinely keeping people from misusing their brand for other purposes. Which they probably do at any EU domain.
BTW, very oddly, easyjet.cz also doesn't forward to EZY's main website. With UK-PRG being EZY's original stronghold.
Especially after EZY left RIX some years ago, and Ryanair going well in KUN, Wizz arriving but also Estonian and of course AirBaltic growing at VNO, it seems the wrong time to enter the LT market. EZY has a slow expansion plan in Eastern Europe, after they burnt their fingers a bit when they initially tried around 2004 (WAW, BTS etc).

Yeah, the link I attached just says that EZY returned the cybersquatted domain.

And I have a new link today, where the head of VNO boasts about at least one new LCC in VNO "soon" and that they're talking to 10 another airlines.

That's the Baltic News Service article, and they speculate that the talk is most probably about Ryanair or EasyJet.

So I fully agree with your elaborations, jpthomas72, but there's not so much LCC's in Europe to attract to VNO that Tomas Vaisvila could be speculating about.

Let me cite him:

“Esame pasilikę uždavinį šiais metais pritraukti dar vieną didelę pigių skrydžių bendrovę, kas mūsų keleivių kitimo dinamikai duos dar didesnį pagreitį, nes kompanijos “Wizz Air” atėjimas nuo balandžio mėnesio yra gana rimtas rinkos stimuliatorius. Mes manome, kad šioje vietoje reikia nesustoti ir dar paspausti, kad galėtume atsistoti į neblogą augimo dinamiką”, – teigė T.Vaišvila.
"We have secured a task to attract one more bigger low cost airline this year. This should increase the dynamics of passenger growth, that will be stimulated by Wizz Air starting in April. I think we should not stop at this place and push it forward to archive a good growth dynamics", - sayd T.Vaisvila

easyJet interim management statement:

RNS Number : 7728Z
easyJet PLC
20 January 2011

20 January 2011

EASYJET INTERIM MANAGEMENT STATEMENT FOR THE QUARTER ENDED
31 DECEMBER 2010

Highlights:

· Total revenue up by 7.5% to £654 million

· Seats flown grew by 7.7% to 13.8 million and total revenue per seat was flat at £47.48. At constant currency revenue per seat grew by 0.3% as growth in underlying yields more than offset some weakness on ancillary revenues

· Passengers carried increased by 8.8 % to 11.9 million, with 59% of passengers originating outside the UK. The load factor increased by 0.9 percentage points to 86.7%

· Cost per seat ex fuel reduced by 2.9% excluding additional costs resulting from disruption caused by ATC strike action and severe weather

· In the quarter disruption from ATC strike action and severe weather cost £6 million and £18 million respectively and in addition led to lost contribution of £7 million. easyJet is working to recover a significant proportion of this through additional costs savings and revenue opportunities

· easyJet placed an aircraft order with Airbus in the period; with 15 existing A320 aircraft options converted to firm orders, 20 A319 contracted aircraft deliveries converted to A320 deliveries and secured options over a further 33 A320 aircraft bringing the total number of options held by easyJet to 42 aircraft

· easyJet's position continued to strengthen with market share gains across Europe particularly London Gatwick, Paris Orly and CDG and Geneva

· Strong balance sheet with cash and money market deposits of £1,281 million (excluding restricted cash) and un-drawn committed financing facilities at favourable rates of $641 million as at 31 December 2010


Commenting on the results, Carolyn McCall, easyJet Chief Executive said:

"Against a difficult economic backdrop aggravated by severe weather and ATC strike action, easyJet was able to deliver a solid trading performance and grow total revenue by 7.5% to £654 million whilst improving its position in mainland Europe.

easyJet will always support its passengers when external events impact their journey but we call on governments to provide sensible legislation for airport regulation and air traffic control. The severe snow disruption of the past two years also highlights the need for airports to invest in the appropriate infrastructure to keep passengers moving."
Unfortunately, Stellios never misses a chance to put the boot in publicly to his agenda . . .

Comment on easyJet Trading Update

Commenting on today's easyJet trading update and share price drop, Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, founder and largest shareholder of easyJet, said:

I would like to draw the attention of the investors in easyJet PLC to the statement I made last November:

http://www.easy.com/news/single/article/stelios-responds-to-easyjet-full-year-results.html?tx_ttnews%5BbackPid%5D=28&cHash=a8a9ca6f63

and I quote from the statement dated 16th November, 2010

"The management of easyJet also needs to carefully assess the financial viability of any fleet expansion. If the profit target per aircraft is roughly £2m, then the company should only buy more aircraft (over and above the 200) if it has identified specific new routes for these new aircraft that produce that amount of profit per aircraft. New route data should be shared with all shareholders for transparency.

"I remain very concerned with the strategy of the previous management which expanded the fleet to develop summer holiday routes leaving it with approximately 40 aircraft parked over the winter. Parked aircraft lose money."

Unquote

Commenting today (20th January, 2011) Stelios said:

"It is now clear to me with losses of £180m in the six months of the winter, it will be impossible for the company to make an annual profit of more than £480m which represents the 12% return on capital employed in a 200+ aircraft fleet.

"The business is too seasonal for its own good and it should not blame the weather every year.

"I wonder where the latest 15 additional Airbuses ordered earlier this month will be deployed next winter without losing even more money? There are not many un-seasonal routes left in Europe."

new route: GVA-SCQ 2 weekly from 15th May
If I'm not mistaken SCQ is a new EZY destination.
