What is the longest route EasyJet do out of the UK. I ask as my wife is meeting me in Jordan soon, and is on an Easyjet flight from Manchester to Aquba, which seems quite a hop for them, indeed I was some what surprised when she told me. Also any idea on the Gin onboard ?
Cheers

Donít be surprised if only the Bombay Sapphire is available, or maybe an Ophir or two.

Security staff strike in BER, DUS and CGN Monday 14th. of March. Possibly more, but those are the ones I can remember. Most flights cancelled, but some still going.

You are quite correct, although they still operate some flights.
Would be interresting to know how this is sorted out. Muss be an interesting business case.

EJU Aircraft based in BER have been flying empty out and with normal pax loads back. At least some of them. Crew Security still seem to work.

Pre Covid, I used to find that for flights between London and cities in Europe, Easyjet was often flying the route I wanted (I'm neutral between London airports) at times I wanted, and at a price roughly similiar to other LCCs. This year, I'm finding Easyjet rather less present or that prices are significantly higher than other LCCs. I'm wondering if Easyjet are maybe retrenching into routes where other LCCs sometimes have less of a presence, hence the semblance of a disappearing act. Yes, I understand that flying empty aircraft with just me as the sole passenger while paying peanuts will not be profitable

Has there been a slight shift in commercial strategy by Easyjet, or are other LCCs being particularly competitive on pricing ?

I've noticed from EDI that while many leisure routes have returned, more or less, to their pre-covid frequency, most Intercity routes that would have had significant business pax, have not - eg Berlin, Munich, Milan, Madrid. Brexit?

More likely to be Covid restrictions. Many of which still have significant restrictions in place.

Leisure (beach) is bouncing back much quicker than city.

Employers have remained cautious on discretionary business travel, aware of the possible liability implied if an employee caught covid whilst away on company business. It would also be concerning if an employee was quarantined overseas. On the plus side, restrictions are gradually being rolled back in most jurisdictions. England is leading the way for once, with the removal of the PLF requirement effective 04:00 on Friday 18/3. That is the last of England's restrictions finally done. One would expect that the devolved administrations will follow suit in the near term. A glimmer of positive news in troubled times for the industry.

Cabin bags

How do Easyjet police their cabin bag policy at the gate? If you turn up with a bag that doesn't fit under the seat and you therefore were supposed to have purchased the large cabin bag add on, how do they know at the gate that you have paid for this or not?
Does the boarding pass show details of your booking when they scan it at the gate? If not then how do they know what size bag you have paid to take on board?
Regards
