BFS/GLA-SOU we're both announced in May 2023 and the two routes have already started.

The joys of single type savings are well known but seems to work OK in US for Breeze & Jet Blue in US.
They are clear in their direction,a nice to bigger aircraft. Interjet in Mexico (though there were other week documented issues), suffered with the complexity of adding a new type. It bankrupted WOW adding 330s to a small fleet of 320 family aircraft. Not a good idea and they are already out of step on cost with the competitive set, I can't see them adding new types. The transition to Airbus though it's was good plane etc etc, the nice was a huge distraction and the cut over was less than straightforward. Easier to stick with one type.

Back in the early days, the first aircraft were some very old B737-300s, then EZY got their brand new 300s, to be followed by the 700 which I was closely involved in introducing. The philosophy from management then was that if the smaller aircraft was full then put on more flights. As the major airports we flew to became more slot constrained, bigger aircraft were needed to take the demand, thus the 320 was introduced. In fact I forecast the use of the 321 as well before I left and long before EZY got any.. We operated the ex-GB airways 320s for a while, but not their 321s. Now the final version of the family has been added and seems to be doing very well.

easyJet absolutely operated some ex-GB A321s.

Hey no problem. I recall they may have been IAE V2500 examples rather than CFM so engineering did want to touch them.

Progression was quite organic.
1. Leased 2nd hand B737-200s initially on the GB Airways AOC (was meant to be Air Foyle?) 01582 445566
2. 2nd hand B737-300s 0990 29 29 29
3. New build B737-300s easyjet.com
4. New build B737-700s
5. Merged with GO who had a similar old/new B737-300 fleet
6. Went large in a switch to new A319s and dumped Boeing
7. Bought out GB Airways.
8. Up-gauged to A320/ A321s

Funny what you remember.....

Plus ....

Three years after commencing operations from its base at Luton Airport, easyJet bought a 40% stake in TEA Switzerland in March 1998.

I started EZY Oct '98, we worked in BSL initially using the TEA offices etc to manage the small fleet. We opened the LTN OCC/NMC Nov '98. I remember getting excited ar LTN-PMI being launched. 🫣🫣. The rest as they say, is history ....

First routes were LTN-Glasgow and Edinburgh. (from £29 each way, hence the phone number)
First international routes were LTN-Nice and Barcelona

I'm surprised that the moderator hasn't moved the last 10 posts into the Aviation History area.

BHX base will opened on 18th March 2024
https://mediacentre.easyjet.com/stor...lights-on-sale

In addition I`ve read that MAN (22nd), BRS (18th), BFS (9th), PMI (8th) and GLA (6th) will each get 1 additional aircraft next summer.

On the other hand EZY will return slots at LGW equivalent 3 based a/c to BA, so only 78 based there the summer compared to 81 this summer.

I was told it would be + 321NEOs based and with quite a few 320s replacing 319s, overall not a great loss of seats on offer. There are alot of new aircraft arriving in 2024. Between 2-5 each month in H1.

At MAN I also believe that all 22 aircraft will be A320/A320neo compared to 3x A319 and 18x A320/A320neo that operated this summer (Also confirmed by SPD on Twitter)

According to the fleet projections included in their y/e results presentation in October, the fleet will grow from 326 to 336 by 30/9/2024.

There is only 1 A321NEO due next year, plus another 15 A320NEO due by 9/2024. Some of these are for the OE register.

There are also a further 8 second-hand A320's due, although I think four of these have arrived during October and November.

The same presentation shows a reduction of 14 A319's by 9/2024. Around 13 A319's have been stood down since the end of the Summer, but not all of these are for disposal, and so a few will probably be back.

The A319s have been mainly removed from Gatwick and several have been sent for scrapping. The Gatwick base will be smaller next summer after the operational difficulties
experienced in summer 2023. 3 A320s from Gatwick are going to Birmingham to establish the base at that airport.
The reduction at Gatwick is partly to improve operational resilience and also due to the returning of leased slots to BA. Already 90 have been returned for summer 2024 with another
140 to be returned over the next year or so. That is the equivalent of about 16 round trips per day. I believe easyjet will introduce more A321s at Gatwick to maintain capacity.
The second hand examples mentioned above are mainly transfers from their European registered company.

What you say is partly correct.

There were several ex-Air Berlin A320's moved from 'OE' to 'G' prior to the 2023 Summer season, and couple of ex-'G''s were restored. But there are several genuine 'second-hand' aircraft added to both EZY and EJU fleets, which came from Japan.

The numbers in their results presentation suggest there are more to come over the next two years. This is presumably part of the strategy to hasten removal of the A319's
