I frequently fly LTN-EDI and wondered wether in the future with U2 growing A320 orders will we see them use it on routes such as this. I know LTN has some U2 A320 but they are used for TLV and other routes such as Sharm-El-Sheik I believe.
The flights between LTN-EDI are always full so I could see the upgrade in the future to be benificial. (Bascally I just want to fly on a EZY A320)

Quoting l33roy94 (Thread starter): I frequently fly LTN-EDI and wondered wether in the future with U2 growing A320 orders will we see them use it on routes such as this.
It has already operated LTN-EDI-LTN because I have flown on an A320 on that route (G-EZTE A320 19 Mar 10 EDI-LTN). They went through a phase last year of using the A320s on Friday nights IIRC. I'm not optimistic about more capacity on that route as the track record over the period post-Go acquisition seems to be about reducing capacity (by reducing the number of flights) on the LTN-EDI route.

When the A320 fleet expands further they will undoubtedly get across the network. They were purchased for boosting capacity at some slot restricted airports and as someone has already pointed out, they are widely used on French domestics. They were of course also purchased for longer distance services and the very nature of these routes means that they often operate shorter sectors before or after the long flights.
