They will not necessarily sign an order for Boeings. They could go with the A319, too.

The question is just when.

Yeah, one can see that you know "for sure" when reading your reply in the KLM topic. If you know for sure that they will order it you must for sure know when they will do so...

You'll hear it in the official pressrelease when it happens...

The 737 is indeed the logical choice, given that EZ already operates a sizeable fleet of the type at this moment and fleet commonality is a major factor in cost reduction.
If they go for the A319, that might mean they plan on retiring the 737s already in service. In that case, the expansion is less large than it looks as about 30 of the 75 aircraft would then be used to replace existing ones.

Remember easyjet are more interested in the bottom line than anything else - if they get a great deal from Airbus they could swap fleets to a pure Airbus one in the long term. This would also let them in the future expand to long haul routes because of the cross certification possibilities on Airbus products (i.e. A320/330/340's)

More likely though they are just speaking to Airbus to get Boeing to knock some money off !!

Oh god, don't get involved in the 737vs. A320 costs debate.

It all depends on routes, load factors, passenger type, route range etc.

However, as a guide, the A320 has 5-7% lower operating costs than the 737-400. The 737-800 has 5-7% lower operating costs than the A320.

Remember, all the factors i've mentioned above have to be taken into account, and in certain situations, the A32X will have lower operating costs than the 73X, although the 737NGs tend to be lower. Remember also that initial airplane price will affect profits in the long term too.

Lol, erm, remember again the list prices mean zip. Big airlines ordering large amounts of a/c can sway the prices. They'll NEVER get them at list price. + a/c may be leased etc.

So yada yada yada, costs have to be determined on an individual airline/aircraft basis.

However (geeez, i love contradicting myself) Airbus prices are generally considered lower than Boeing prices.
