Summer Season

LGW-PFO Double Daily

MAN-PFO five Weekly

LGW-LCA Four Weekly

Anybody knows the loads for the moment. Especially for the newly started LGW-LCA ?

What about the aircraft used ? Only A320s or also A321s and A319s ?

I am traveling next week from LCA to LGW, what to expect ?

What about the future prospects of these routes ?

MAN-PFO loads are generally very good. They always have been to be fair and was the best performing route for GB Airways ex MAN. In fact out of all the GT/U2 MAN routes, only TFS and PFO have operated the entire time.

I would assume that LGW-PFO are similar........I rarely operate the route but double daily frequency says it all. PFO is generally an A321 ex LGW with some A320's. I assume LCA will be 320's too. The EZY 319's don't have the legs to do UK Cyprus.

What about A321s ? Are they being used on the route ?

When are the A321s going to be phased out ?

Any chance that Easyjet orders new A321s ?

Thanks GT4EZY. Appreciated.

As far as I know BA is using A319 from LGW to PFO. Ok I understand that it may not be fully loaded.

But CY last summer used A319 from LCA to BHX, and that one believe me was fully loaded !

Also in the past, Helios used A319 from LCA to UK.

Why Easy A319 are not capable to perform the route ?

As far as I'm aware it is a weight issue.......I assume beacause EZY 319's are heavier/bigger capacity. I'm not fully up to speed when it comes to range etc but on the occasions that they have operated the Canaries, a tech stop has usually been required inbound....or pax left behind.

PFO is a very strong route for BA out of LGW so loads are high, especially as we approach the peaks. But maybe it's to do with the lower overall load due to the 2 class cabin, less weight?

Or are BA's and EZY's A319 different in other ways?

Thats what I assume. An STN 319 once had to pick up a MAN-PFO from STN onwards but left with no catering and only just made it. That is also why, with the current mix of routes, MAN is still an A320 base.

How many seats are there and do these recline?

180. EZY's policy of non reclinable seats was reversed a few years ago I believe. Therefore these should have reclined seats (for what the little difference is worth-especially compared to the arguments they can cause) except for the last row and those in front of the overwing exits.

Why then, not upgrading to the A320 or A321 ?

or LGW is only B734/A319 Base ?

What is the seating arrangement on BA A319 ?

Sure both your flights will be operated by the first of the brand new EZY spec A320's. There are only 3 of these in the fleet so far, the other two now being MAN based.

Obviously things could change but thats what is currently scheduled.

If understand correctly, say for LCA, every Wednesday the flight is operated with A321 and the other flights on the other days of the week are operated with A320. Is that correct for every week in the summer season, or Easyjet changes the type of the aircraft subject to demand ?

What is policy of Easyjet on this issue ?

Any chance to order Easy spec A321 ?

I'm not sure how LGW works. It probably changes a bit especially now that there are very few 321's left.

Chance of EZY spec 321's in the future? Not for the forseeable future but never say never.

LGW is a A319/737 base, no A320/A321's there. Also. even though the A319 will be full most days this summer I think BA are happier to have it that way than risk a larger aircraft.

Really? I know you are one of the first people to fly these birds ex MAN. So we have gone back to non-reclinable seats?

EZY's A319's have de-rated engines when compared to say the majority of BA's A319 engines. This lowers the MTOW in turn lowers the amount of fuel that can be loaded on to the aircraft.
I am sure someone else with a little more knowledge in this area will add or correct me if that wrong, but that's the reason in a nutshell.

During Winter season BA flight to PFO was operated with B734.
What about weight resttrictions ?

Is the range of B734 sufficient for LGW-PFO ? epsecially westbound ?
