I wonder what effect (if any) this will have on operations from other UK airports.

An interesting article from Romania - where they believe Wizz is about to start London to the US and Canada. INSIDER / Wizz Air vrea sa zboare din Londra in Statele Unite si Canada ? Aeronews

Its certainly a bold order... I wonder where they will all be deployed?

WIZZ AIR ANNOUNCES ORDER FOR 146 AIRBUS A320neo FAMILY AIRCRAFT
Provides fleet renewal and expansion to capitalize on growth opportunity and drive unit costs even lower
DUBAI, 15 November 2017: Wizz Air Holdings Plc ("Wizz Air" or "the Company"), the largest low-cost airline in Central and Eastern Europe, announced today that, following a competitive selection process, it has signed a memorandum of understanding with Airbus S.A.S. ("Airbus") relating to the purchase of a further 146 Airbus A320neo family aircraft (72 A320neo and 74 A321neo). While deliveries will start in 2022, the bulk of the aircraft will be delivered in 2025 and 2026, following on from the delivery of the 110 Airbus A321neo aircraft ordered by Wizz Air in 2015. Under the memorandum of understanding Wizz Air has the right to substitute a number of the A320neo aircraft with the Airbus A321neo and vice versa, depending on its future requirements.
At current list prices, these additional aircraft are worth in excess of US$17.2 billion although discounts will be granted by Airbus. Completion of the order remains subject to approval by Wizz Air shareholders.
"Once again, Airbus has delivered the best overall mix of aircraft, cost efficiency, support and price. We are convinced that the Airbus A320neo and A321neo will be game-changer aircraft for Wizz Air, as we continue to grow at an industry-leading rate and expand our market reach across and beyond Europe," said József Váradi, Wizz Air's chief executive officer. "The next-step technology aircraft will enable us to continue to lower our operating costs as we drive towards our goal of Wizz Air being the lowest fare and lowest unit cost airline in Europe. Wizz Air will continue to stimulate demand for air travel in CEE and beyond by offering the lowest fares to our customers, while still delivering a great customer experience on-board one of the youngest fleets in Europe".
This new order, if approved by Wizz Air's shareholders, would bring Wizz Air's outstanding orders with Airbus to 282 aircraft, including also 8 Airbus A320ceo and 18 Airbus A321ceo aircraft, deliveries of which will continue to early 2019, and 110 Airbus A321neo aircraft, deliveries of which are planned to start in 2019 and continue through to the end of 2024.

WZZ in further press coverage state no transatlantic planning/ambition,will concentrate on "Eastern" Europe & will also not be moving into the Western Med market.
So therefore the answer is no to the question regarding traditional British holiday destinations inc Majorca.

Interesting article by TTG...

https://www.ttgmedia.com/news/news/w...-flights-12383

Couple of quotes:

Asked if he would follow Danish carrier Primera in launching into the budget transatlantic market, he said there were “no plans at the moment”, and said offering flights to destinations like Spain would be “a very silly thing to do”.

By the time we get to the start of these services, Wizz Air UK will be up and flying,” he said. “It will allow us to offer destinations from Luton without having to fly them in a ‘W’ pattern from abroad.”

“Our business is very much eastern Europe, there is only one-tenth the number of seats on sale there compared with Western Europe,”

Jones hinted, however, that the carrier did not have its sights on Gatwick despite Monarch’s demise leaving space there. “We have one route there, it’s not a focus for us.”

Suppose this could be posted in the Luton forum too, but posting it here as more Wizzair orientated...

Flights to DSA from Eastern Europe are heavily reduced for next summer. DSA is currently their 2nd most served UK airport. I wonder if they'll be targeting anywhere else?

I notice that Wizz's press release yesterday refers to 186 seat A320s. When did they increase the capacity from 180?

Don't know when, but they'll just be copying easyjet, they managed to squeeze that extra row in. Imagine the leg room now

The leg room is actually fine, possibly better than the 156 seat A319's/180 seat A320's with EZY's old seats. Providing they're slimline like EZY's, 186 will be perfectly comfortable.

I had one of EZY's new 186 seaters in May, Tenerife - Newcastle, perfectly comfortable for 4 hours

The only 320 delivered this year (amongst the 321s) is flying for a while now with 186 seats. Btw the distance between the seat rows is the same as the extra row is accomodated with relocating the two aft toilets.
