Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

EasyJet flights winter 20/21

@Rookiescot, @eblunt, after seeing your posts yesterday, I looked at my revised booking details but I could not see any reference to the cabin bag allowance. so I emailed EJ last night, and fair play to them, had a response this morning to say that I have also got the "hands free" allowance free of charge.

But, isn't this still different to what the original allowance would have been, wouldn't we have had the standard carry on size bag?

my normal flexible, fabric cabin bag is larger than the "under seat" bag, and my teenage daughters have the solid type (I know it P!!!!s me off as well!!). In their situation it will just go "hands free" so not really an issue. But I take my laptop with me to load on photos and videos during the trip, and do not like it going in the hold.
will just need to check that it will fit in my bag and go under the seat.

we normally drive, so just load up what we want and unload at the other end. But the offer of 3 return seats, 6 bags and 2 ski bags in the hold was two good a deal, I carried out a comparison last night and it would be £2200!!!!

This is what EJ consider a large cabin bag - max. 56 x 45 x 25 cm and able to fit in overhead locker. This is the same as the old allowance - but you’ll have to put in in hold. You are allowed to take a smaller item on board
“ Customers can remove a small item (max. 45 x 36 x 20cm) from their cabin bag to bring with them on-board“ - would that do for your laptop bag?

Ditto - managed to get Feb 21 flights transferred to Feb 22 no extra cost. DFDS Ferry booked for the summer, just keeping all fingers crossed it will happen.

Yep, one of my Easter flights (out, but not return), and the return leg of my flights for the EoSB have been cancelled today.

The April/May schedule for next year gets released tomorrow, so not long to wait to work out moving them, for those who want to.

(June to Sept 2022 flights will be released 9th March for those interested)

Looks like EasyJet have cancelled all Edinburgh-Geneva flights until May.
No doubt the cancellation emails will start arriving over the next few days Sad

How much should I expect to pay for 4 of us to fly at Easter next year?

@bezthespaniard Normally about £600 for 4 of us - but that's me booking the second the flights come out as the prices can climb quickly! So I would get on and look now.

@Handy Turnip-that's what we've paid for Gatwick-Geneva, 26/03-02/04 for 4. We got the outgoing when they were released months ago for £150 (with luggage), got the returns today for around £350.
Not as many Saturday flights as I can remember from previous years, given it is one of their 'flagship' routes.

I can’t see any Southampton or Bournemouth flights for Easter next year. Anybody know if they are being released late or if they stop them by end of March regardless?

@NickyJ, I think this question has come up in previous years, depending on where you're flying into, I believe that they stop them by the end of March. Hopefully someone will either confirm or put me right!

Both only had flights to Geneva on offer but schedule is still as before. I wasn’t sure if they are doing a rolling release of flights from departure airports OR if that is it.

aaaahhhhrggggg can only rebook flights to an airport in the same country as the original destination airport!!!! That’s a massive change from their cancellation policy in the first lockdown.

Why would they do that? Can't see how it is advantageous for them to do so...

Moved our Easter 2021 flights to Easter 2022. Thursday 14th 6pm to Monday 18th 9pm, 4 days skiing, 0 days annual leave. Free of charge as well, and carried forward the 99p baggage deal.

Once you manage disruption you can then change flights in-line with normal flexibility but you would need to pay any difference of the base fare (excluding baggage) based on your original purchase price. As I was looking at half term this has massively limited my ability to change airports (without paying a fortune extra!) now

Hey Folks

Your will have to apply for your Schengen Entry Covid Digital Vaccine Passports ...These will be the only Digital Vaccine Certificate that will be accepted if you want to enter the EU.

They are already in advance trials & will be just an add on to the Schengen Visa.....

Countries which had been waivered the Visa restriction will have to apply (when its ready) ...it will be a new requirement but in essence Visa.

NO idea yet of timescale of introduction what the cost will be yet .....but guess to align with relaxation of Quarantine Rules.....and that will not be happening this Summer for Countries outside the Schengen Zone...

Frontex will head up the enforcement

So bare in mind their will be additional costs/restrictions before you can step on an Airline or cross the border into the EU Schengen Area.

If your flights been cancelled and you intend to change to a new date, is there any time constraint on when you re-book? Either time from it being cancelled or in relation to the date of the original cancelled flight?

I've been wading through the thread looking for an answer but either missed it or it's not here.

@adithorp, I am sure there was a constraint with respect to when you were scheduled to depart that somebody mentioned?

When you rebook you are constrained to same departure and arrival country. This was a bit of a shame as w end originally booked flights to Austria for Christmas as it was looking like they were going to cancel our flight, decided to rebook for Feb half term as found a route (Southampton to Geneva) exhibit meant only paying a little bit more. So when that was cancelled we were stuck with flying to Geneva for next Feb half term (once you have managed disruption they go back to being able to rebook which meant I could change destination but the fares for other routes meant we would have to have paid a lot more)

I think this will the same, world over.
Want to visit USA, need a vaccine passport, want to visit Oz, need a vaccine passport, want to visit UK - no problem, but pubs might ask to see vaccine proof.

I'm not certain, but I *THINK* it has to be before the scheduled departure of the originally booked flight.

I spoke to two different people on the phone at easyjet and got two different answers: I hedged my bets and went with the second one which was as above and more restrictive. I preferred to play it safe rather than miss the opportunity to book any flight at no additional cost.

How to prevent an Airline going Bankrupt.

Move all your Fleet of Planes from UK to Germany & European Hubs Very Happy Very Happy

Britain’s biggest budget airline is moving capacity for Spanish flights from the UK to Germany.

Don't see what bankruptcy has to do with it.
Don't forget, most European flights have also been suspended for months.

They currently have limited capacity, and a lot of pilots have been furloughed (at a cost to the UK!). Cheaper to move the few they have available than take more off furlough and bring their training up to date.

When we reduced restrictions, and EJ thought they could make some money, they brought some staff off furlough and updated their training to meet the perceived demand. They are simply moving some of their aircraft and personnel to where they can operate at the moment. They will be moved back to the UK for the end of July, when we can travel from here to their planned schedules.
