At the moment it is the whole industry not just a single airline.

Just received an email from EZY, which has put its Winter schedule (to Feb 21) on sale early. It says "Until midnight on Tuesday 24/3/20, fares for our flights from 25th October 2020 - 28th February 2021 will be available at or below £29.99 one way per person."

Yep, looks like a cash grab to me.

Looking ahead, flights to canaries for £57 per person return from all over the UK.

Yep and you can't blame them one bit for that. Survival of the fittest at the moment!

Was looking to book flights to either of SZG or INN from LON and, though the dates are loaded, when you pick a date it just comes up as NO FLIGHTS.
No flights loaded to MUC yet either

Maybe not the right forum for my comment but air travel was one of the biggest contributors to global warming and it was growing fast. Most people don't care as long as they can get a cheap flight. Maybe this will give the world a chance to catch its breath.

Something very odd going on with EZY fares for 2021.

Yes, there are loads to the Canaries, Spain, Cyprus etc, for under £29 each way.

However, domestic fares, which can only be viewed on the App, not the website, are through the roof, for example, the cheapest one-way fares in Jan/Feb 2021 on a random selection of routes are as follows:-

IOM-LPL £91
LGW-JER £148
LPL-BFS £102
LGW-EDI £138

No-one is going to book at those prices, so if this is a cash flow thing, it's an odd way to go about it.

Some of those have little, if any, competition since the demise of flybe

Even so, these fares are irrelevant. When, or if, the time comes the real fares will be completely different.

That's an oversimplification, and it's not really true, is it. IOM-LPL is available, in May 2020, from £20.99 each way, and apart from IOM-LPL, Flybe changes nothing on the other routes I sampled.

FlyBe didn't fly to/from LTN, and LTN domestic routes (I looked at EDI, INV, ABZ) show the same patttern.

Finally, I quote from their e-mail to customers, sent yesterday:-

"Until midnight on Tuesday 24/3/20, fares for our flights from 25th October 2020 - 28th February 2021 will be available at or below £29.99 one way per person.
These fares are available on our website to book now.

The £29.99 or below fares apply to one way per person and are subject to availability. These fares are available on all winter flights launched for the dates 25.10.20 – 28.02.21 with the following exclusions: winter flights to and from Germany, Morocco, Egypt, Tunisia, Israel and Jordan will be available at a later date."

Wouldn't get too excited about W20/21 schedules as there is a lot more water to go under the bridge before then.

Wrong.
Just for a bit of context - the Greta generation loves its social media. Nothing sums them up better than turning up at some protest and posting a picture to Insta (or whatever) with some pouting snowflakes under '#saving the planet' or some such crap. Or simply posting a meaningless photo of a plate of food to the cloud. So where is 'the cloud'? The cloud is a massive network of physical data warehouses that use VAST amounts of energy. Already some estimates put the global CO2 contribution from the cloud at more than 4% and growing exponentially. Aviation's 2% seems modest by comparision....and why does no-one mention the contribution from the world's shipping fleets that not only emit CO2 but also filthy black soot and other noxious fumes as well? This doesn't even include dumping vitually all their crap overboard or washing out empty tanks whilst out of sight on the high seas.
Frankly aviation's 'sins' are relatively light weight compared to some of man's other activities.

Excessive CO2 emissions come from multiple sources, aviation is one, another big one in the shipping sector is cruising, that becomes ever more popular. Fact is that as Tesco says "every little helps", hammering aviation on it's own achieves little, reducing our consumption habit generally (stopping buying "stuff" and "gifts" that are little real value in the scheme of things) would be a great step forward, however in a world that whole MO is increasing growth there is absolutely no hope of that happening.

Perhaps Covid 19 may shock the world into realising there's more to life than consumption and economic growth. Doubt it though.

I am, by the way, well outside of the "Greta generation" and certainly don't use Instagram or any of the other social media platforms.

Earlier flight time

Due to fly this evening to BFS from BRS. Received text saying flight departing at 17.40 instead of 19.10 plus arrive at BRS 2 hours early. I can't make it in time and contacting Easyjet is not happening, been trying for 6 hours. Any advice?
