I can't see Jet2 wanting in on that market. Flybe can offer the frequency by using smaller a/c and thus generate much higher yields.

No room for two players in the current climate.

Pretty poor mistake by EMA team!

New route to Gib??
 
The Government of Gibraltar have announced a new route from summer next year, to replace BmiBaby from East Mids to Gib. They wont say who the operator will be at this time, but could be Jet2 with their 733`s.....unless Easyjet are returning there head to head with them??.........any views

Wouldn't Monarch make more sense?

Rumour is it is indeed MON

paully 17th May 2012 15:10

Hope you`re wrong, a Monarch monopoly with their silly money prices, isnt even worth thinking about...Probably be cheaper to fly BA from Heathrow :{

MKY661 17th May 2012 16:51

Would be nice if it is Jet2 :)

I think Monarch's prices are pretty good we have had a load of cheap flights but as long as you book it early :)

TheQuietLife 17th May 2012 22:28

Monarch have great prices.
Additionally the comparative remark to BA is also well off target, it is easyJet who are the ones wanting bonkers money - and for a product with 'free for all scrum' seating.

paully 18th May 2012 17:44

Monarch have great prices??..er when..For the flights I have this year EZY from LPL are actually HALF the price of Monarch. Just to be sure I checked next years prices Man to Gib with them at nearly 350 for 2 (without pick your seats either) May/June time and almost double the price to Malaga where they have competition.

Most people I ever met on the LPL flights were deserters from Monarch due to cost.I note you live in Gib, maybe the flight prices are different from your end. I still stand by the BA remark, like Monarch they do have the odd good price day and date

Mine was a general comment, I was considering it across all routes I'm familiar with, that are operated by any/all 3.

Yes, the easyJet LPL-GIB flights can currently be bought quite cheeply, including right up to deparatue, but this is because they are NOT performing as easyjet wanted, hence why they are stopping them before the winter!
[Thouse flights are not priced where easyJet want them to priced.]

I was looking at more stable operations, which are more comparable:

Lets base this on LON-GIB (yes different London airports) and LGW-AGP. These are by no means the only routes I know well and my comment was not based just on them, but lets use them because you were talking with a GIB focus, I was talking generally:

Also, lets look at a weekend next month.

[In my world this is reasonably far out - amazed you are looking a year in advance! Obviously you live in a different travel world to me... I rarely book anything other than long haul more than 3 weeks in advance, for long haul anything up to 3 months in adcance but usually less!)

Based upon outbound Friday 15th, return Sunday 17th June.

LON-GIB

BA: 311 - no fees for luggage, no fees to enable online checkin, no fees for allocated seats, no payment fee, snack meal and drinks. Frequent flyer programme Avios credit [And could be only 438 for CE, with two bits of luggage, full meal service, lounge access.]

easyJet: 214 - scrum boarding, no luggage, no food or drink, includes 9 booking fee.
easyJet have multiple flights, I've gone with the cheapest, to move to a morning deparatue from UK, like BA and ZB would push the price up to 238.

Monarch: 189 - seat allocated at checkin so no scum boarding, no luggage, no food or drink, no booking fee. Frequent flyer programme, but not as good as BAEC (Vantage Club used to be better for the economy flyer, but BA have improved the EC a lot).

To me, the easyJet proposition is always the one that makes no sense. Scrum boarding, no frequent flyer programme, more expensive than monarch, and in personal taste, not as nice.

Now, lets look at LGW-AGP (same dates):
Going first for the cheapest flights, irrespective of time:
BA: 225. (late ish outbound, late night return)
Monarch: 211
easyJet: 193 (late night return)

Now, going for similar times (monring departure, pm return):
BA: 425
Monarch: 211
easyjet: 271

Again, if late night fine, I'd take the BA. If not ok, I'd take the monarch.

[I should say, I rarely travel school holidays either, so these prices are looking odd to me. I can tell you when outside of school holiday times, easyJets value proposition is even more crackpot.]

Refined pax only on Monarch - no scum boarding


bluepilot 19th May 2012 21:08

can this be discussed on the monarch thread?

MKY661 19th May 2012 21:17

How about here instead:

TheQuietLife 19th May 2012 22:48

More than happy for it to be moved there by a MOD if possible.

Mine was originally a general comment, but paully was talking GIB specific so it became that.

flyOU 31st May 2012 16:40

Hey guys,

I read Jet2 opened summer timetable 2013 and saw more frequencies from NCL and MAN to DBV and SPU. New route is from LBA to SPU. Sure, there are maybe more news about routes, but - sorry - I have just looked for Croatia.

:-) best regards from croatia, flyOU

theloudone 31st May 2012 19:23
