But that requires the whole aircraft to be reconfigured. Every seat re-pitched, oxygen masks moved. Significant down time for the aircraft. And given for easyJet this is a specific, short term issue, it will be quick to undo later.
Sadly for Monarch, it didn't save the airline.

1/ Depends where you remove the seats from.
2/ This was done a long, long time before the airline started making catastrophic decisions to kill itself.

The very back row (Row 26) is coming out of the 319s, and for the exact reasons that Downwind_Left says, the rest of the seats are being left exactly as-is.

I'm guessing / hoping the poster is joking about this being a perfect place to pile cabin bags. With no way of securing the bags such as a pannier or net (which would be a mod to install) then the space from which the seats are removed can't be used.

EasyJet is to offer new and existing cabin crew a £1,000 bonus at the end of the summer holiday season, as airlines battle to retain and recruit staff. The airline said the payments would acknowledge crews' contributions to what it expects to be a busy summer, with travel at near pre-Covid levels.

Easy have cancelled a lot of their LGW-TLS flights yesterday/today/tomorrow. Any idea why?

21 cancellations yesterday and 16 today out of LGW caused by one “sick” A321?

Lack of crew is the real answer.

Probably both, illness can’t be covered easily because there’s not enough to step in. Whisper it quietly but it’s still not over, even if people want it to be. The signs are there again. Notices up as you walk around, ‘Sorry kitchen closed due to unforeseen circumstances’, ‘Sorry opening at X/closing at X due to unforeseen circumstances’. Multiple people at work have gone down with Covid, multiple people I know have. And some of these already had it recently, within last couple of months

I`ve been wondering why easyJet doesnt fly to Cardiff (CWL) Surely flying from BFS-GLA-EDI to CWL would be a good move... I would certainly use it

I know Bristol Airport is not that far away but Heathrow isnt far from Gatwick either so ?!

It’s probably a case of why would they need to when passengers will travel to BRS to fly with them? The extra costs of either having a route to CWL isn’t needed when passengers travel across the bridge already.

It is not enough to reason that a route 'might work'. To be worthwhile for the airline, deploying scarce aircraft resources on that route must be more lucrative than any alternative use that aircraft could be put to within a similar timeframe. Yield is key.

Eurowings will offer to take over the surplus easyjet crews, and wants to increase its BER base by roughly the same amount of aircraft. Easyjet is directly handing a competitor a considerable marketshare in its only german base.

Seems to be a bit of a meltdown going on - substantial number of flights cancelled this afternoon.

Apparently, due to a major IT failure in Ops/Crewing.

Yeah, it was pretty bad at Gate 54 today. Santorini, Aberdeen, Geneva, Toulouse and many more cancelled.

All the flights that were cancelled were given the same gate number which caused a massive crowd to gather. No PA and the shouted announcements just weren’t getting through.
No one could get through the crowd to other gates either.

Felt sorry for people off to their first holiday in years and the couple going to Geneva for a wedding. And the ground staff too, not their fault.

Any indication as to why this is? Berlin seemed to be the key element of their Germany strategy, but maybe margins were really weak
