I read yesterday that 6 A320 neo have been long term leased to another airline. I have seen no more of this any where so it might be speculation. Any one heard any thing about this.

It was a sale and leaseback, so the aircraft remain with easyJet.

I can't help thinking that using remote-based a/c may actually be a gain because the flights will miss the first-wave crush.

They do this quite often so not really any news. Suspect reporter saw this and immediately thought this was a knee jerk reaction to aid cash flows.

Hoping to have 110+ aircraft operational again by Friday. Even some A321NEOs!

im not sure where you get your info from pabely but there are definitely no A319 or A321 Passenger flights this week or for the foreseeable future & there are also nowhere near three figures for the lines of flying by Friday.

Operational from an engineering point of view. Whether Ops use them is a different thing.

Slightly random observation however I’m gonna ask the question. Having looked on FR24 recently, it appears that BA is doing most of its short haul flying with their newer NEO fleet yet EZY seem to be restarting their flying programme with older CEO Airbus. From my armchair perspective, wouldn’t it be better for EZY to have newer, more fuel efficient aircraft flying when cash is tough? Surely that would help their fuel bill? Or have I missed the point entirely 🙃

You could also argue it would help their ‘Newer aircraft, state of the art air filtration’ marketing.

Maintaince Ops are going as fast as they can. 320CEOs & 320NEOs first but some frames have not been looked after very well by third parties I believe. More technology means more to check and supply chains are still slow. The cost of fuel currently is not such an issue.

A small positive - at least for me, EasyJet will launch Gatwick - Stockholm Arlanda from 20th July. Route will operate 4 times weekly. They previously operated the route from Luton before suspending it.

Those appear to be positioning flights, not passenger.

pabely, I work with the flying programme everyday so I have a good idea where our planes are flying too thanks. As I’ve said before, there are currently no 319/321 flights planned for commercial flying in the next couple of weeks. This may change when the next review takes place but for the moment they are only flying for air tests, ferry flights and other non passenger related reasons.

Sorry, from a pilots point of view SND is the name of Southends NDB.
Those of you who know EZY routes SOF was not due to start until November so obviously a test / positioning flight. My point was engineers are starting to prep 319s now as well.

Does anyone know if drinks/ snacks are still available on EZY flights as is the case with FR and LS? Is so presumably it will be with contactless card payment.

'A limited Bistro service will be available on most flights. Brochures will not be available on board so please check the easyJet mobile app or website for the most up to date menu card, or with our crew on board. All our flights will now be cashless with only card payments.'
