Good news for U2 and Airbus. I wonder what new routes will be introduced and if any of the new orders will be earmarked to establish new bases.
I hope that easyJet remembers this time to employ sufficient staff to man the aircraft when they are introduced in their fleet, so we do not see a repeat of all cancellations etc that besieged the airline earlier this year due to 'staff shortages'.

I know there are -converted- options for 319s but people/reports seem to be switching arbitrarily from 'A319' to 'A320' for 'new' airframe options for Easyjet. Which is it? Has Easyjet ordered A320s[sic]?

No theyve ordered A319s, which are part of the A320 family - all Easyjet have announced about options at this time is that they have '75 options for the A320', which everyone assumes is any of the A320 family because the options held up to now have also been labelled as A320 options.

New possible routes show expansion to and from Athens (LGAV/ATH). I do not have a source for this yet, will post when I do. However, possible routes are from Geneva, Basel, and Paris to Athens. Also, there are negotiations going on with Athens Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport for U2 to make a Hub there. Would be GREAT to see that happen.

Quoting Baroque (Reply 16): So much for the doomsayers who a couple of months ago decided that the A32x had stopped selling.
That's correct Baroque. Our good Mate Nav20 was one of those that firmly believed that due to the A380 delays, all of the Airbus portfolio would suffer from lack of orders and that production would dry up pretty soon
So Nav20 if you have the chance to browse the following numbers, you will clearly notice that your prediction was off by a long shot.
I also seriously believe that Airbus is still holding back some goodies.

What is most interesting to note is not only that Easyjet converted another batch of its 100 remaining purchase rights to firm orders, but that they've also signed for another 75 additional purchase rights, despite them having 48 left from the first order from the end of 2002!
This means Easyjet now holds purchase rights for a further 123 A319 aircraft on top of the 104 A319 which they have firmed, yet are not yet delivered to them! Combined with the 88 which have already been delivered, this means their total commitment to the A319 now stands at a grand total of 315!
When all planes will be delivered, Easyjet will by far be the biggest single A32F operator in the world.
