easyJet Will Retire Last Two 737's Next Week

Sun Oct 23, 2011 10:13 pm

Friend and fellow a.net member HansHubers, working as a dispatcher for EZY, was informed that the last two Boeing 737-700's in the fleet will be retired next week. An end of an era, in my view.  

Below is the schedule for the last day of operations:

October 31st:

EZY2263 LTN-BCN 07.45-10.55
EZY2264 BCN-LTN 11.30-12.50
EZY2103 LTN-SXF 13.40-16.30
EZY2104 SXF-LTN 17.00-18.00
EZY2161 LTN-AMS 18.30-20.45
EZY2162 AMS-LTN 21.15-21.30

EZY2201 LTN-MAD 06.50-10.20
EZY2202 MAD-LTN 10.55-12.20
EZY67 LTN-GLA 13.20-14.40
EZY68 GLA-LTN 15.05-16.15
EZY2045 LTN-ZRH 16.45-19.35
EZY2046 ZRH-LTN 20.05-21.00

Catch them while you can!

Easyjet aren't making a big deal of it as yet which is surprising as the 737 has been part of Easyjet since day one. However, there are several bases now that have never known the 737 and there are many employees who have never been part of the Easy 737 (including myself) and the last couple of years they have been pretty much an anomoly in the fleet. For many, they said goodbye to the type years ago (LPL, BRS etc etc) but it's perhaps fitting that they have seen out their days in LTN where many will fondly remember the 73.

As a former dispatcher I always preferred the 737 over the A319. Creating the loadsheet was more challenging and slightly less pax to deal with.

Exactly, all bases outside the UK (except EZS in GVA) have never had 737's based and even some of the UK bases like MAN (and formerly EMA) never had 737's based as well.

They started with the 300 Series. But then, why did they buy the brand new 700 since they knew they would eventually phase out the 737 in favor of an all A319 fleet?

The pilots I spoke to, where not very disappointed, because they are flying the same routes every day all over again. For them a 'relief' in a kind of way they will see some other airports in the future. They will be retrained to fly the A319/A320 as far as I remember.

Shame to see them go, and they have done a good job!

Very ironic, people at LTN were complaining all they saw day in day out were 737's... The only ones we will see now are the 4-6 Ryanair base at the airport and the occasional Thomson 738.

Now the airport is hugely dominated by the A320 family, with Wizzair, Monarch and easyJet flying them.

The 737-700 is now going to be a rare site.

Quoting GT4EZY (Reply 8):

easyJet inherited the 737-300's from Go-Fly and it was one of the earlier UK bases to be switched to an all A319 base, in one swoop. But please bare in mind they only ever operated three aircraft from the base and was tiny my comparison to other easyJet UK bases, where the likes of BRS, LTN, STN, LPL all had in excess of 10 aircraft based there.

I am not loosing much love from the retirement of the 737s. They're a poor product compared to the a319s. Luckily we rarely see them in EDI but easyjet don't advise aircraft type on booking so it all came down to chance.

But nevertheless it was still a 737 base.

Why? It could be just me but in my experience you have slightly more legroom on the 737's. I also prefer the older style seats on the 737 compared to the newer non-reclyning ones on the A319.

There's also a possibility they might go to the scrapheap. Look at G-EZKG; only 7 years in service and does not exist anymore.

I flew G-EZJC when it was only 2 days old  Sad to see them getting rid of the 737, they were a great aircraft and the backbone of the fleet for many years. Strange that they are replacing them so soon.

Indeed one 737-700 so far has been scrapped for spares, as well as one ex-SAS / FlyGlobespan 737-600. AFAIK, the 737-700 scrapping was a sort of experiment, to find out if it's indeed worth more in parts. I'm not aware of any conclusions drawn from this kind of experiment.

I won't be surprised if more 737-600s will be scrapped, though.

Well this is indeed the end of an era. I flew on G-EZKG back in 2004 on BRS - PRG when it was just 3 months old - the crew made the point of it being the newest (and ultimately last) 737 in the fleet. It's sad that it has been dismantled already.

Well, above all U2 continues to go from strength to strength and its fleet of Airbuses is serving them well and pointing them towards the future.

Farewell to the U2 737s...

the 737-700 remains in high demand with none for sale at the moment-----they would be fools to scrap them and we will never know why G-EZKG was scrapped but no way was that a/c worth more in parts than as a flying 7 year old bird.

I really really doubt. According to the book 'The story of Easyjet' (can't remember the real name but it is about how EZY has formed until the day the Sellios left EZY) they have had a huge discount upon their Airbus order. The discount was actually that big that Airbus has said that they will never ever sell planes at such a low price.

We all now that O'Leary only looks at the purchase price, hence his interest in Comac.....I thus certainly do not believe that O'Leary will buy A32XNEO (not to mention that the order book is booked until 2020).

It may only be 7 years old but EZY really work their birds and it probably has far more rotations than aircraft operated by legacy carriers.

Maybe so but 7 years is still young for an aircraft by anyones standards. Plus, legacy carriers in recent years have seeked to increase utilisation of their short haul fleets and EZY slacks it's schedule considerably in Winter.

Quite a few of them have come to LGW to do their command on the Airbus and many have gone over to Airbus. A close friend of mine is a First Officer on the Airbus at LTN and he said the current 737 flight deck crews are all contractors.

I always enjoyed flying the 737 at easyjet (which is around 15 rides). Much bigger window, less noise (Some A319 really have annoying engine vibration (probably rather airflow induced, not the engine itself)), and probably half an inch more legroom.
I like the A320 from a technological standpoint, but as a passenger, I always prefered the 737.

Saw what will probably be my last EZY 737 sighting in HAM on Monday.

Yes, one of the few remaining 737 destinations on weekdays.

easyJet Will Retire Last Two 737's Next Week

Very sad day indeed.
Marks the end of an era for EZY.

Took one last good look at the 737's on the apron at LUT last month, while boarding my generic A319 to GLA, knowing that I'd never see that distinctive brand/image associated with the youth of EZY.

The end of an era. easyJet's last 737 has just touched down at LTN from AMS for the last time, marking the end of 737 operations with the airline.

RIP this iconic combination.

Saw Kilo Delta this evening as well, on final approach here in Amsterdam, around 20.30 local time.

Just to clarify that the majority of the 737 contact pilots (flexicrew) at LTN are not being fired. They are starting their A320 type ratings over the next few weeks and most are being offered a permanent contract with EZY at LGW.

Anyone know why G-EZKC operated as "EZY737B/EZY737Y" today?
