Easyjet Order Looming

Easyjet is looking to order 75 narrowbodies, which will be a welcome shot in the arm for this industry, currently in a low point in its cycle.

Personally I think Boeing will probably get these orders, since the carrier presently only operates 737s, as do most other budget airlines. Airbus is offering a 319 with 5 extra seats (?!), but if past experience can be used to guess at the result this won't persuade Easyjet to buy them.

.... or they'll just look around in the second-hand market and get them cheaply....

Isn't that what ryanair is doing?

Just seen it on the BBC.
They're talking to Boeing and Airbus about this order.

Just wondering... is it wise for a low cost carrier to buy so many new jets? Wouldn't it be more economical to buy used ones?

Asgeirs,

Intuitively it would feel that it would indeed be cheaper for them to buy used jets, but then perhaps they intend to keep these for a long time and newer models have lower operating and maintenance costs. Besides, as the airliner market is in one of its ominous cool seasons again, the prices at "airplane shoppe A&B" may be quite good.

Just heard on Sky News that it is likely to be an AIRBUS order.

Asgeirs:

In the short term, yes, it would make more sense to buy used jets, because of the lower capital cost.

But used jets can have problems. They are closer to major (expensive) checks, and no matter how careful the buyer is, they tend to be in maintenance more than new planes.

New jets come with certain guarantees, and with a lot of after sales service from the manufacturer.

Cheers

Low Cost operators who buy NEW jets-

Virgin Blue
jetBLUE-right from the start
Southwest

Quite common and it's certainly more economical in the long run.

Why not taking the 717? This aircraft makes a good figure for another low cost operator (Airtran)

Hi all,

If easyjet order from Airbus, that would me that all the pilots would have to be trainned to the new type of aircraft right?, would'nt that mean extra cost for the airline, plus not forgetting trainning the cabin crew, I think it it is far more effective for a low cost airline such as easyjet to stay with the 737's.
