As far as I can see, they aren't charging for use of the overhead lockers. The policy says the new standard allowance/dimensions should fit under the seat rather than has to be stowed under the seat. If there is space in the lockers when you board, I doubt they are going to forbid you putting your bag in one.

It exists, trust me. It’s dependent on time of the year, routes and markets but easyJet offloads an average of 14 bags per sector.

EZY crew do manage it better than BA crew form my observations of BA flights too but easyJet crew have had years to master the art and that requires crew to be actively involved. Even so, last minute offloads are a big source of customer dissatisfaction. This is also why there isn’t an option to purchase this extra allowance, it is linked to certain seats and plus card holders. Had it been possible to purchase extra allowance it would defeat the object of the new policy and that would certainly be a case of profiteering.

Customers on TLV routes won't be happy!

This is most definitely not an encouraging sign of Easyjet's financial health. Yes, they are doing something about it before it gets to a critical state (i.e. we are not about to see Easyjet go bust in the next 3 months), but hiring Alix usually means senior management is rather worried

Alix was enlisted back in May near the start of the crisis.

Easyjet Europe running a program on 25/12 this year, don't remember that before. Not Uk flight program but obvoiusly will require some ops backup from HO.

Much of EJU operated last Christmas day. The previous few years saw AMS, LIS, BCN and OPO flying.

EZS has always flown Christmas Day for as long as a I can remember.

Essentially, easyJet has never totally shut up shop. There is still ops cover and there is standby coverage by U.K. based crew.

I know, just more noticeable this year after the low of what is just 22 sectors flown one day a couple of weeks ago.
Heard 1000+ for 27th.
MOL thinks it will be a consolated EZY/EZS/EJU/WZZ soon anyhow!

To carry the same hand baggage as this year, it will now cost our family of five an extra 320 next year ... representing an additional 60% on our flight costs.

Are they deliberately trying to lose our business?

ESCNI - are there other airlines which provide comparable service at a price less than Easyjet, on the same route and same dates that you want ? And yes, factor in baggage charges for both Easyjet and the other airline

You may wish to look at Easyjet's cheaper option of 'Hands Free' (16 one way for a family group of 6 people, each person gets a bag in the cargo hold) or being able to carry an additional large cabin bag by reserving extra leg room seats
If you choose the 'Hands free family' option, 320 covers 20 oneway sector for your family

For those who aren’t aware about this last line - MOL said in an interview with Eurocontrol the other day that he expects five airline alliances to form and that RYR would be the only LCC with EZY merging with WZZ as both of them have higher cost bases than them.

I’ll have some of what he’s smoking but it just underlines how an even lower race to the bottom he is seeking to achieve.

Other airlines (eg Aer Lingus or LOT) on different routes offer much lower rates for baggage. At this early stage, our holiday destination can easily be influenced by flight price.

The family bundle sounds like a good alternative but, in a trial bookking, I can't see where it gives me this option.

"A Family Bundle consists of one cabin bag per person where all persons are on a single booking. The max number of passengers for the group bundle is 6." ... No mention of any bags in the hold, and no defined size for the cabin bag. Is the family bundle only available to customers who have booked Up front or Extra legroom seats?

Why would Easyjet merging with Wizz be a bad idea from a profitability / shareholder point of view ?
Fleet commonality ? Tick
Complementary networks ? Tick
Similiar product offering ? Tick

I agree it would be bad for employees and work conditions but shareholders tend not to be interested in that

O'Leary is just trying to soften the troublesome competitor Wizz that has lower cost than Ryanair (Take the 2019 published total cost of each airline and divide it by amount of passengers)
Merging Wizz with the much higher cost than Ryanair easyJet will again make Ryanair the airline of size with the lowest cost base in Europe.
And that is why it would be bad for Wizz's profitability and shareholders. And possibly easy's watering out its premium LCC brand with Wizz's cheaper than chips brand. But easyJet might be doing a bit of the latter part themselves removing the easy part of their customer service by slowly copying Ryanair's most hated traits.

Until such a stage that Wizz starts needing trade union representation. With all this expansion into Western-Europe and Scandinavia, could come sooner rather than later. It's the only reason in reality why Ryanair set-up Buzz, Lauda, Malta Air etc. so they can reallocate labour on favourable terms and minimise the cost impact of unions. Wizz could be forced to do something similar.
