I would say it is intended to reduce the amount of cabin baggage on city pairs where trips are generally shorter. The thing is, IMO, the reluctance to check bags on these routes tend to be because people are in a rush and want to make the quickest dart possible.

As easyflyer83 says, I can't see people giving up their free cabin baggage to put their case in the hold, even if it is reduced. The only way that can work is if cabin baggage is charged as well (say at £5 e/w) - and 'plus' customers get it free, which narrows the gap between the two.

And because if you have one bag then *something* in it is breakable...

Sorry? Whats up with that easyJet plane?...

MKY661 20th Nov 2017 22:35

It was the all Orange EasyJet Plane, it is now in standard colours before leaving EasyJet to join EasyJet Switzerland.

CMC's last results this morning - wonder if there will be a Monarch/Ryanair/Air Berlin bump?

ib26uk 21st Nov 2017 11:44

The all orange plane? I saw it at LGW years ago

KNT544 21st Nov 2017 11:48

It was all orange until last week before it went into that hangar and made to look all normal for the first time in it's life.

Doesn't seem to be in this lot - indications that may appear next time

No, looks like it came a bit late in their financial year. Currency & fierce competition in key markets look to be the reasons for the profit fall - although stated looks better into H1 with no Monarch & Air Berlin.

Flights now bookable upto 28th Oct 18

Rumour says Condor will operate on behalf of EZY some German domestic routes (not mentioned which destinations) out of TXL for a 4 months period.
During winter season Condor might have some spare aircraft from January to April available before summer business starts in May. On the other side EZY can base step by step more aircraft at TXL before starting full operation next summer.

Rumours within the Orange brigade suggest Qatar Airways will be flying on behalf of EZY during first half of 2018 doing most of the routes out of TXL, maybe both operators to be wet leased- time will tell?

Seljuk22 26th Nov 2017 08:19

"well-informed source" regarding Condor (only in German)
Condor fliegt innerdeutsch für Easyjet - airliners.de

EZY will start in January with 2 own and 12 leased aircraft. TXL-FRA should be one of their domestic routes (slots already approved). EZY will base 25 own aircraft by autumn 2018 in TXL. Some of them ex-Air Berlin aircraft.

toledoashley 26th Nov 2017 08:37

From what EasyJet suggested at their recent earnings call I took it as the TXL would be all ex-AB aircraft.

Amazing to start in a month and a half with 14 a/c and NO routes on sale yet. Presumably they have to wait until the transaction is approved (13th Dec?) before they can put routes on sale but I can't imagine the load factors will be too high in the first couple months.

chaps1954 26th Nov 2017 11:22

loads may be high but fares low

Mr A Tis 26th Nov 2017 13:42

What is happening with easyJet Europe? I see they have only transferred 8 aircraft from the UK to Austrian register,I thought they were moving around 100 frames over? With all the Brexit uncertainness & the TXL expansion can we realistically see much UK expansion in S18?

LGS6753 26th Nov 2017 16:15

4 A319s and 25 A320s allocated Austrian registrations according to Jethro (not all re-registered yet). There will be no reason to run separate fleets until Brexit happens, and probably not even then.
