Today easyJet is pleased to announce that it has entered into a contract with Airbus for, amongst other things, the supply by Airbus to easyJet of 120 A319 aircraft with options with price protection on a further 120 A319 aircraft (the "Airbus Contract"), on substantially similar terms to those

On the contrary I would say.. the minibus is a fine aircraft, flies like it's on rails and never had a bad experience with it as a passenger.

Was especially impressed when I flew with jetBlue NYC to Florida on the 320.

Well done EasyJet - one question though, will they still expect a 20min turn round on these a/c?

First delivery is Sept this year, so expect the first one into service then.
Regarding 20 min turnrounds, they are pretty much a thing of the past at easy anyway.

Didn't easy cite the wider aisle of the 320 as a reason for choosing it, seen as a wider aisle means passengers are embarked and disembarked quicker.

Mytravellite manages a 30 minute turn around on their Belfast route.

Wider aisle, bigger doors, no cramping into a narrow bit at the front and back.... Lots of reasons for wonderjet choice.

Just surprised to see nothing on easy's website about the signature, though. What engines are they putting on there?

It is true, Luton can't manage a 20min turn, but it is maintained at all the Scottish Airports

Alex,

Easy has signed for 120 aircraft plus 120 options at the same price as the 120 aircraft. The 120 options can be converted or cancelled at any time, just like any normal deal. So Easy will definitely recieve 120 aircraft, but the other 120 are less definite.

The engines are CFMs and I think 22k, can you get smaller CFMs on the 319? The 737s are 20k.
