Easyjet flights geneva - london luton

Does anyone know whats going on with Easyjet Flights from Geneve to London Luton.
I use them or swiss weekly and just tried booking some flights for November and December and it seems they have dropped their morning flights from Geneve and late afternoon and evening flights from Luton to Geneve.
The Gatwick Flights all seem Ok, but its a real pain going into Gatwick for me.

Is this it now for easyjet or is it a season thing?

It is a season thing They did this with flights to Amsterdam too. I guess they have less demand in the colder months and this way save money..understandable in a way, but I know it is a pain.

I know they start flying to Stansted around the same time for the ski season, so maybe they just switch the routes.

Re: Easyjet flights geneva - london luton

Same problem I think with Zurich / Manchester ... Easyjet flights leave about midday to Manchester, return late morning ( back in Z. early pm. ).

- This means that if I want to just pop back to the UK for a weekend I have to book 2 days off work (Fri / Mon) or may outrageously for Swiss Air....

- Surely there must be a huge market for late / early flights from here considering the huge numbers of foreign workers (like myself)...

easyJet change their schedules on a regular basis. easyJet Switzerland has a busy Summer season, it's low season in the Autumn and then another high season in the winter for which they adapt their timetables.

I can give you my guess as another regular user of these flights (you might have seen me - big guy, bright red fleece, usually carrying a rucksack, somewhere near the front of the Speedy Boarding queue, usually LTN-GVA Monday, GVA-LTN Thursday).

This Monday easyJet retired the last two of the old 737-700 aircraft (shame, I've gone a long way on those!). My suspicion is that they're a couple of aircraft short for a short period until another couple of new A320s are delivered. Therefore the flights go down to one rotation per day for a short period. Cleverly they've done it so it's early out at the start of the week, evening back at the end of the week, which is no use for a day trip but at least suits us weekly commuters.

FWIW they have never gone down to one rotation a day before, it was always two "off-season".

However it's not all bad news - as the ski season approaches (mid December I think) we're back up to 3 or 4 return flights per day until March.

FWIW these are EZY (Luton based) flights and not EZS (Geneva based)... Though your point is correct...
