if you buy their cheapest ticket to London and need to change the outgoing flight, you cannot then use the return flight. You need to buy a whole new return ticket.
Yes unfortunately I had something similar once with BA (my fault, not theirs). However, I was able to claim back the taxes on the ticket - less an admin fee. As the taxes tend to make up most of the ticket price, you should check out claiming the taxes back from Swiss.

What's to enlighten? Log into your easyjet account and enter your API details into your booking or they won't let you board.

But you could have gone from Basel to LHR for 99CHF return

But I guess coming home to a 3 hour bus and train ride isn't ideal

Threatening you?? My mum was "invited" to give her passport number online to make her check in quicker. No threats. And when she called them to clarify they very politely told her she could leave it to when she arrived at the airport but to allow a bit of extra time in case it was busy.

Give them a call and ask them.

Most airlines ask for your passport details as part of the check in procedure so it's nothing unusual from Easyjet.

I would think Easyjet would be scoring a bit of an own goal if they start "threatening" their own customer base.

I logged in my details, but that hasn't stopped Easyjet sending me the same email each time I travel.
Now I just ignore it and haven't had a problem, even when I use a different passport to the one I gave them the number of.

Re: Easyjet tip

A bit off topic, but is it required to travel with your passport inside Schengen zone? I ask because my EasyJet boarding pass just says to be sure to bring photo ID. When I showed my Swiss B-Permit, they said I was required to show my passport (USA). Maybe because I am not an EU citizen? But how would they know this from my boarding pass?

While I always carry my passport, I wanted to see what would happen with the B-Permit when traveling between Paris and Barcelona.

I doubt that a B permit is recognised as official ID outside of CH.

As for the EJ passport details, I would presume this is UK Border Agency compliance from EJ.

Swiss B-Permit is the equivalent to a Schengen visa but (like other visas) you need to have your passport with you (or other valid travel document) and it must be valid for 3 months (or 6 months for some countries) after the date your visit finishes.
BTW UK is not in Schengen zone.

Re: Easyjet tip

Just to be clear, I was traveling between Paris and Barcelona, so inside Schengen.

And on my boarding pass, it says only "For security, photographic ID is required." So was just testing to see what a non-EU citizen might be able to use while traveling inside Schengen zone.

My mum was coming from the UK which isn't Schengen. Passports and information on inside leg measurement still required.

cheaper easyjet flights

Just found a really interesting and useful glitch in the easyjet website.

For those who use easyjet often you could save quite some money.

For example you book a flight from Basel to Amsterdam for tomorrow it cost you 140 pounds.

If you book london to basel, the basel to amsterdam and cancel the london flight from the selection the same exact flight cost you only 81 pounds !!!??

A staggering 60pounds cheaper.

Tried it with some other flight too, dif. flights have dif price differences but they all work. For some reason all bookings which start in London are cheaper...

ENJOY your flight

Re: Easyjet tip

Quick question:

For an intra-Schengen Easyjet flight (Geneva to Berlin Schoenefeld and back), will a non-EU citizen need his/her passport or will other ID suffice?

If a passport is necessary, is it solely for Easyjet staff or is there any kind of border agency to be dealt with?

Thanks in advance!

If you're non-EU, you need a passport unless you have a national ID card from an EU country - a work permit or visa does not count as your formal ID.

Re: Easyjet tip

I think the boys at sleazy are wising up

I just did the 'usual' and the flight ZRH to Man was CHF 9 cheaper, but the car hire was CHF 6 more expensive, slashing my meagre saving to a whole 3 chuffs...have I been here to long that I even notice
