We have used Easyjet for over 5 years travelling back and forth every month and they are our airline of choice. In all that time they have only been late twice, and have never rescheduled a flight. That doesn't mean they won't but I think it unlikely. Whenever we have compared the prices they have always been within a few pounds of the lowest price once you have taken into account airport charges and all the rest.

Hi

We always use Easyjet now and have done for the past three years. We have found them very reliable (famous last words!). We have even been very please, when during the winter, we have had connecting flights in Liverpool or Stanstead. In all the time we have been using them we have only had two serious delays. One was for 3 hours, it was mid-morning and no big deal. The other time was an 8 hour delay but that was due to severe snow in the UK - not exactly their fault. They gave us more food vouchers than we could spend and I really could not be critical of them.

Hope this is helpful, but may not be a guide to future performance!

Regards

Sharon

Hi Scarlet

I have Easyjet flights to Palma booked for October. I booked a few months ago as soon they were released for sale and the prices were excellent. I've booked this far in advance before and not had any problems - here's hoping this year will be the same.

We regularly fly EasyJet & have not experienced any more delays than you do with any other airline i.e. it happens occasionally. If the price is good - go for it - they get more expensive as demand grows.

Hello Scarlett

We have used easyjet since they started flying, but sometimes now nwe use Monarch.

In all that time they have only changed the scheduled time of departure from Luton on a couple of occassions, and only by a couple of hours.

The usual delays will always happen due to unforseen circumstances

No problems from Gatwick - as long as you keep your eye on the board, as they do often change the checking in time from what you are told at the desk!
We do have the occassional glitch when booking on line though, but nothing that has caused problems other than me sorting out what hubby has done wrong!!!

One annoying thing about their free seating though. I get really, really annoyed with couples that take both inside and outside seats, leaving the middle one empty! ARGHHHHH!

If it's cheap and you can afford it then I usually say book it

Highly unlikely that any schedule changes will take place for October as that is still the summer timetable.


We booked our flights for February 2009 back in July 2008 and paid 57.24 per person in total ( including the card fee etc).

Flights for September 2009 where booked in November 2008 and cost 83.25 per person , I felt ripped off paying that much , missed the launch of the new timetables by a few days so missed the bargains...

Looking back at old booking emails from years ago we usually paid about 50 to 70 per person by booking as soon as flights released, has been as much as 130 per person for us if we left it too long.

Will be booking February 2010 flights in a few months as soon as the winter 2009 schedule is released

The only problem is knowing when the new schedules are released as they dont send out the emails for weeks sometimes...
Maybe frequent fliers dont get the early booking emails as they know you will book anyway.

I agree book the earlier the better. They very rarely get cheaper.

There are rumours that if you use the same PC, i.e. they know you are interested, the price goes up. I've also had to book 2 groups of 2 in the past as it ended up costing more pp for a group of 4!

So don't delay they may already have up - perhaps its watching the forum...

I try very hard not to pay over 100 per flight nowadays. This week, albeit with Ryanair, we are going for 2p + CC charges of 8 each..

If you frequently browse the sites such s easyjet & bmi then it pays to clear your temp internet files and cookies before viewing..

We have also often found it cheaper to book flights individually or in small batches rather than a larger group.
