Thank you.
Would think it depends on base and how active you want to be swapping duties. In BER you can do as close to 900 as humanly possible as there are mostly SFOs who want to get rid of their long duty days. Elsewhere between 650 and 870 hours, again depending on how active you are in the swap groups. Based on full time, in the seasonal bases it is considerably less, however rank progression is based on time in company, not hours (well, in FAO at least), except for command of course.

No, the base is all year round.

Thanks, I just rechecked using a different route into the website and found flights.

I have deleted my post, clearly I need more practice using the internet!

I have also wondered about this. With the shift to more WFH since the pandemic, I don't think a single, combined office is needed for at least the next few years (although it would be nice).

A319 Introduction Question
Updating some records and I just noticed something I had missed. When easyJet were first introducing the A319, they had G-EZES on display at Farnborough 2004 as F-WWBD/ES on the nose doors.
It seems to have been delivered to EZY on 4th Oct and off to EZS in Switzerland as HB-JZJ three days later. Anyone know if it ever flew under it's UK reg and operated for easyJet in that period? Or was it really NTU?

It appears Bilbao may be getting dropped from the UK network after October 2024, as SPD_Travels has reported that MAN-BIO is not bookable for Holidays in 2025, and a further search from myself shows that BRS-BIO and LGW-BIO also donít appear to have Holidays in 2025 at this moment in time. No idea if GVA-BIO and MXP-BIO will be affected.

Will be a shame if true as I find to be a nice city.

I hope the route continues. Why are they thinking of withdrawing the route? If you have any additional updates let me know.

Could it be that BIO was a summer route only? If so we wouldn't expect it to be on sale yet and it may just be that travel companies may hold off booking until dates and times are available.I agree BIO is a great city. I was really impressed when I visited it using EZY a few years ago.

Itís a summer route but itís strange you canít book a package holiday for next year even though the flights are not released. I love Bilbao as well, hope to see more of Northern Spain next year.

If you read through the threads in this forum, there is often the implication that easyJet are a cut above the other LCC's - the broadsheet readers choice. Having suffered their appalling customer service after being dumped in Barcelona a number of years ago, I've always struggled with this a bit - but admit I might be a bit biased .

Any evidence that supports the common perception that they are better than the rest?

Common perception is all that is required! Marketing/advertising bods doing their stuff.

It's very hard to say because being a cut above the rest involves things going wrong less than the others (which is hard to judge) and things going wrong being dealt with better than the others (which is hard to know unless you fly a wide choice of airlines so much that you regularly find things going wrong.

While I say this failing my own test of being a valid person to comment, I suspect they might be. I fly with them once a month and the only time anything has gone wrong (5 hour delay as Glasgow techs didn't have a component and they therefore needed to call a standby crew and bring an aircraft from Gatwick) the meal voucher arrived pretty instantly and the EU money within about 5 days and without any quibbling. On that basis they would at least count as better than Wizz, but I'm not sure if that counts for anything! The only time I've had to contact them (apply easyJet+ number to existing booking) the webchat was fairly instant and competent, but again I'm not sure how much that counts for!

On the other hand I've never had anything go wrong with Ryanair or Air Baltic in the first place, but then I only fly with them twice a year.

I have friends on the 2144 DLM-MAN (now stopping at Milan). The 2143 seemed to have a couple of goes this morning at MAN before a 3 hour delay for a pax issue. Any ideas?

Manchester was Year Round, although they did have a brief period during January when the route wasn't operating (this was not the case in 2023).

Hi,
Just a quick technical question about Akureyri airport and how Easyjet fly it. Had a really fun flight into runway 01 on 23/03. This approach is slightly crazy, dropping into a glacial valley. I'm fairly sure that the pilots used the displaced localiser and only lined up with the runway 4 miles out. Would this always be what Easyjet pilots use, rather than the ILS with the steep 5.3 degree approach?

Passenger was taken ill and it returned to stand, due to the length of the duty the crew can't operate the full trip with that delay and thus the need to night-stop.

I see easyJet has just agreed a pay deal with cabin crew, with a 20% rise in basic pay over the next 18 months.

Although it's a big step, the element of this which caught my eye was around delay pay. If a flight is more than an hour late, every cabin crew member gets £15 and if it goes over two hours late, the payment doubles. Isn't this just a sure-fire way of making sure that any delay of 50 minutes turns into a delay of an hour, and every delay of just less than two hours turns into a delay of more than two hours? I can't believe anyone in airline management would be so fundamentally stupid as to sign up to something like this, but someone clearly has. Absolutely potty.
