Just a quick question im hoping someone can answer... I was up at Newcastle airport on Sunday last week and as I was watching the planes landing I noticed an Easyjet Airbus A320/319 not sure which coming into land??? I was under the impression that they only used the 737 from NCL..... certainly when I have flown with them from NCL the entire base has always been 737.

Are they planning to switch out entirely to Airbus? If so do you think this was a base aircraft at NCL or just a fluke visitor?

NCL is a 737NG base, not sure when this station is due to receive the A319's...

I think the STN-NCL route is flown with STN metal, so it is likely it was an A319 based there. Even though NCL is a 737 base, easyJet is notorious for flying a lot of "W" routes, so potentially it could have been from any base... For example last month I flew LTN to LIS and I was speaking to the crew and the aircraft was operating LTN-LIS-CDG-LIS-LTN, just on their shift alone.

Luton is the largest easyJet 737NG base, but we still get to see A319's, flown in from the likes of GVA, DUS and GLA, so I doubt easyJet's A319's are that much of a rare sight...

This only really happens on flights between two non-bases. I'm assuming this was before the base opened in CDG, as this is now an A319 route.

Second largest, behind Gatwick

I believe LGW is a A319 base not number of routes and aircraft based there.

I flew out of NCL on Easyjet last year on a 73G but the next gate along was a A319.

Easyjet fly A319, they don't have any A320 until the GB airways acquisition is complete.

The STN-NCL route is operated by NCL based aircraft and crew - so is 737.

Not from DUS - U2 don't fly there! The A319s at LTN are mostly EDI and GLA based A319s.

A319 G-EZBB operated EZY8007 LTN-NCL

A positioning flight for training etc?



Next flights: LGW-LBA-LGW, LHR-SIN-SYD, SYD-BKK-LHR, LGW-GRO, GRO-CIA, CIA-MAD, MAD-LGW
