Would there be any chance that EZY goes for the A 320 or the A321 ? I read it once on EasyJet's website but I cannot find the link anymore. Thanks in advance

I dont know if there is any more news on wether they will be getting any A321, I know they were considering it because of slot restraints.

According to the world aircraft census, Easyjet havent ordered any A321's.

So far all their orders and deliveries have been for Airbus A319's and as the links that Planesailing shows state:

Quoting Planesailing (Reply 1):


"Airbus has agreed to provide easyJet with A319 aircraft in a single class configuration with 156 seats which compares with the 149 seats of the Boeing 737-700 aircraft presently operated by easyJet.

The Company also has the right under the Airbus Contract, subject to certain conditions, to elect to receive the larger A320 and/or A321 aircraft instead of the A319 aircraft, in a single class configuration, with 180 and 220 seats respectively for most of the order."

So it is always an option for them and something I feel they will eventually take up, especially as their operations gets larger in particular markets and agree, as Planesailing also mentions, because of possible slot restraints too...

I remember something that Easysjet said one of the reasons ordering Busses was the possibility to go for larger planes.

Keep in mind that larger planes allow not only to cope with slot restraints, but offer also lower CASM. AFAIK the improvement is approx. 10% by each step (318->319, 319->320, 320->321). So, IF U2 succeeds to sell that many tickets for one flight it's highly recommended to operate larger planes. They operate some relatively long flights, e.g. Germany/Britain - Greece. Also here larger planes might be useful. BTW, Germanwings operates a mixed A319/A320 fleet, too.

Maybe, Easyjet is able to pick up some 2nd hand A320s, too?

U2's biggest base is LGW, could they fill an A321 every day and be profitable, are the routes fat enough or would W flights be needed?
