easyJet, thanks for the memory

After all the negative reviews, here is a glowing one.

Left for Sharm El Sheik March 11th on a brand spanking new easyJet plane, very sleek, booked extra legroom and was very comfortable, a bit of a technical difficulty before taking off that caused an hours delay but plenty of apologies so just went with the flow - not much else we could do in all honesty. No bumping passengers off and cabin crew very attentive and quick with trolly duty.

Left Sharm for Stansted 18th March, brand new aircraft again and this time an early take off, again had booked seats with extra legroom so again very comfortable, cabin crew a dream, pilot slightly camp and kept us all chuckling, trollies made good time up the aisles so nobody kept waiting too long for refreshments, even got a free chocolate bar and arrived back in Stansted early enough not to be too irritated by the long queues at passport control.

Well done easyJet, have flown with you before and will fly with you again.

No grumping from this grumpy old git on this occasion.

^ Sorry but that's inaccurate, most charter aircraft including the companies you've mentioned don't fly their short and mid haul fleets right through the night, if you could see the operational planning systems you'll typically witness around 6-8 hours of downtime per night for 737/A320 type aircraft. Long haul fleets do tend to be flown longer (around 21 hours a day) but that's the nature of long haul.

As you recognise, fleet age is quite key with the RYR and EZY fleet age being kept very low.

Thanks Monroeessex, nice balanced review about easyJet. We used to fly with them frequently when they were based in the midlands (and Wales) before pulling out and found them a good law fares carrier.

I also enjoyed reading your holiday review too!
