It all depends on where the crew choose to base themselves. MAN base had a number of Northern Irish crew a few years ago, for instance. That base also has a number of Scottish and numerous ‘scouse’ (despite having a LPL base) crew and I guess all it takes is for the stars to align and you have a crew that you mistake for being based elsewhere.

Occasionally you will also get flights that, for whatever reason, are crewed by crew from two or more different bases.

Crew shortage/tech issues/sickness mid duty.

With all due respect, does anyone have anything interesting. Like what routes will come with Easy 6 or who will be flying the Gibraltar route linked to above?

Plenty of crew get put where they're needed, not where they want to go.

Yes, AerRyan, sounds like they were either positioned or changed bases.

EasyJet aren’t like Ryanair.... crew apply for their chosen base. They don’t get told where they are going by easyJet.

But if you mean operationally, if they are required elsewhere they can be sent wherever. So if you are LGW based, you could be sent to work out of BCN for several days but as they are LGW based, it is a ‘trip’ and is treated like any other layover.

Child, if you have a crewing question about one of the airlines there are threads for such. This being the BIA thread for talking about the airport, I wish to see what is relevant. The logistical question you ask was pointless anyway as some common sense would tell you that crews might be mixed in a pan european operation subject to both freedom of movement of workers and to various needs to fill gaps where crew shortages arise.

I would have expected more common sense from such a seasoned traveller as yourself (with your yp railcard and all)

SecondDog - be gentle with the younger ones on the forum. We don't want to offend any little millennium snowflake types!

Yes it was GAZMO.

Rumour on the Jet2 and Newcastle thread that there is two more routes to be announced from each of their bases for S18.

Think that's when you book on avios website? Booking through BE it lets you take off up to 45. Cheapest returns are 79 ish so that equates to the 35 fare.
