You might not be aware at the full range of people who fly on Easyjet - it's not just the peasants who are scraping pennies together. Many of the people who take the helicopter with Blade/Monacair/Helisecurite between Monaco and Nice are connecting to/from Easyjet flights (yes, I was surprised by that too)

I got that price for x2 Adults + hold bags, with x4 flights that day, did you go for highest price or lowest?

Stansted with RYR gives similar prices
Cheaper from SEN with EJU or with WUK from LUT.
Begs the question, if Easy could get more slots at Luton, would the SEN route exist or is it just overspill?

Could be a focus on the easyjet holiday market also and trying to keep more desirable flight times for this, I know Jet2 save some flights for holidays only. Easyjet havn’t realised the summer 24 BHX flights and have said they specifically open for easyjet holidays atm.

Why are they holding back the BHX flights to book flight only? I want to book some returns to Berlin but don't want an easyJet holiday!

I would imagine because the package garners more revenue / profit than an airline seat. But really it isn't very good for someone like you. If they aren't careful it'll be BHX/DUS on Eurowings and the ICE to Berlin.

Yes potentially it will be. I get they want the additional revenue but am confused why they've opened bookings for seat only on their existing routes on the app/website e.g. EDI, LIS, GVA etc but not for any of the new ones.......which is even more confusing when other flights from UK airports to Berlin (amongst many others,) are bookable flight only.

I'm guessing the based flights are possibly still a work in progress, which is why they haven't released seat only? If so that's not good practice from them to take people's cash for them to find their flights re-timed or even non-op......or is BHX some sort of EZY Holidays only experiment to see if they can fill flights with package only punters?

Why make such a fanfare about launching the BHX base when you still can't actually book any of the new flights (which, let's face it all of which have existing competition apart from BER)

So it looks like I'll be flying from MAN again in April unless EZY pull their finger out soon.

April is 7 months away. Do you really need to book that urgently ? Large numbers of Ryanair routes simply are not bookable at all beyond the end of March

Not necessarily but we will be a combined group of around 25 flying to Berlin for a family wedding in April from MAN, LGW and within that group 4 of us (,including myself) from hopefully BHX, all with EZY

The point of my post got a bit lost! My question is, why are flights with EZY to BER bookable now from MAN and LGW (and indeed throughout S24) yet no flight only bookings are available from BHX? I'd understand a bit better if no schedules had been released by EZY for S24. The others travelling from MAN and LGW are booked (of course this far ahead at very good fares)

We are going to hold on for BHX to be released as its way more convenient for us but it's very frustrating to know flights are bookable but only as a package at the mo

None of Easyjet's new routes are on sale yet as flight only inc. all those announced from BHX
I would expect to see all new routes going on sale in late October - early November as they have in previous years.

Local media in Canaries reporting flight 2011 operating MAN-TFS diverted to ACE this morning due to 8 violent passengers. G-EZOP has now continued its journey onwards to TFS

easyJet are reducing MAN-IOM flights to between Friday and Monday during the winter months; Loganair have said it'll increase its flights in November and December to seven days a week in response.

Additionally, flights between BFS & IOM will not run between 17th Nov and 22nd Dec.

I should imagine in the next 4-6 weeks, existing EZY routes from UK bases incl BHX are on sale thru summer 24 but none of their new ones are yet, including of course those from BHX.

Some new BHX routes delayed?

#seanm1997, usually very reliable, reporting delays to commencement of some routes, mostly minor, but BER and JER apparently until September.

It occurs to me that both BER and JER are really more suited to flight only rather than package holiday travel (I would never book a package for a city break myself) so I reckon they've a mistake in not opening up flight reservations from the start.

Question is of course, will replacement services be loaded to replace the BER and JER in high summer?

Interestingly two of my work colleagues were on this flight going on holiday. They said there was no violence or disruption but rather one of the people involved said something that offended a member of the crew.

The truth doesn't sell newspapers!
