    Easy had some problems last year too. Trying to squeeze maximum flights out of their planes with as low a staffing bill as possible is bound to cause problems. A business model that every loco airline aspires to though.

    There have been easyJet cancellations for a few summers now. A lot are the result either directly or indirectly of overseas industrial action or weather but there seems to be a significant number where neither of these conditions obviously plays a part.

    In July 2016 member ezy_brs posted this in the BRS Weather, Diversions, Delays, Cancellations thread.

    Talking to an Easyjet cabin crew member last week and was informed that they are expecting two A321s to be based at Bristol by next summer. Familiarisation training is already under way although there was no indication of which routes they will operate

    Welcome to Forums4Airports 8mileshigh!
    I'd imagine they would put them on the popular sun routes to Spain and the Canary Islands and even Turkey. I'd have thought that eventually as well we'd see the A321neo at BRS eventually.

    Interesting although I have also read that the a321s are planned for lgw and Paris only so let's hope it's true.

    There are reports on social media that an Easyjet aircraft was forced to abort takeoff due to a light aircraft being on or entering onto the runway at the same time.

    Thanks for that, Jerry. it's not made clear which runway was being used - 09 seemed to be the active one in the morning from the flight patterns near my house but it was switched to 27 in the afternoon as the light wind came around a bit.

    If 09 I suppose there could have been some form of 'contamination' with light aircraft taxiing from/to the southern apron.

    It would have been a bit of a shock for some of the easyJet passengers when the take-off was aborted but everything seems to have been handled professionally by the flight crew.

    On flightradar it says originally it was departing on 09 but then afterwards used 27. Luckliy no one was hurt though no doubt there will be an investigation into how the incident happended.

    I suppose it depends on the circumstances and the result of an enquiry. Understandably, details are a bit sketchy and the full picture probably won't be known publicly until after an investigation.

    Looking at FR24 it looks like it returned to stand. Probably to let the brakes cool down.

    Heads don’t roll in aviation safety unless someone has been recklessly negligent; we investigate, publish any lessons learnt as widely as possible and take appropriate steps necessary to prevent or mitigate recurrence. As is often the case there were a number of factors at play, but the event was ultimately resolved by one of the available safety barriers.

    With incident like this one it shows that training worked good. Humans like animals always tend to do things no body expects so well done to the easy jet crew.

    Yes they are new routes. Larnaca is the second service to Cyprus as Paphos is operated year round and for quite a few years.

    New routes starting Winter 18/19 from BRS are:
    LCA - Larnaca, Cyprus (28 Oct) - 2x weekly
    OSD - Åre Östersund, Sweden (9 Dec) - 1x weekly
    SOF - Sofia, Bulgaria (8 Dec) - 2x weekly

    This takes the total number of easyJet routes from BRS to 68. To give you a comparison, LTN has 70 routes!

    54 of these 68 routes will be served during "peak" Winter which is 7 more routes than the same time last year!! These new destinations this Winter are NCE, NAP, CTA, SVQ plus the three just announced LCA, OSD & SOF.

    During the whole Winter period, easyJet will operate around 18-21 extra weekly departures from BRS in comparison to last Winter.
