I believe they are currently at 7x A319's, 1x B737-700, with the A319's being EZAD,EZAG,EZAI,EZIO,EZIX,EZIY,EZIZ and the B737-700 being G-EZJU.
The B737-700's would have been relocated to the bases of Belfast, Newcastle, Liverpool and Luton - dominantly the latter two in replacement of the B737-300's. Bristol should be all A319's soon, and in July, they will get a 9th for the 5 new routes. Of course the Newcastle and Belfast flights will remain B737-700 op'd for the foreseeable future.
Yes, the twice daily Dortmund flight is operated by the A319. Other than that, no.
Quoting Humberside (Reply 2): I think one B737 has moved from BRS to LPL this weekend for EZY's new LPL routes starting this week
I think you're right - BRS is now 8x A319 based, with G-EZIB (an aircraft i flew on just 2 weeks ago) being the aircraft brought in to replace it. Of course these do chop and change when aircraft go into maintenance etc. (for example, G-EZDC has just recently replaced G-EZIO at BRS)
Slightly off topic, but Bristol today became a base for Air Southwest. New flights to Norwich started today, but flights to Dublin stopped (not surprising really - with FR and EI operating larger aircraft direct, not via Newquay)
