a chum of mine told me that a couple of EasyJet 737 (-400's I think) arrived at Southend the other day - I tried to get down and see them today but failed! Anyone know if these are some of the old Easy fleet that are being sold on? :rolleyes:

is probably some of the 737-300s that EZY are selling off as they replace them with A319s. I know that G-IGOJ and G-IGOK are being sold to Thomsonfly to become G-THOJ and G-THOK. Could be them.

Yes, they are there for end of lease checks and maintenance

I think EZY733s have been seen quite a bit at Southend now, as they are retiring them and just concentrating on their 737-700 and 319 fleets. They are being sold on and I saw one in the Airliner World June edition being parked up at STN awaiting a new owner.

Hope that answers your Q.

WW are due to get three more former U2 737-300s - G-IGOJ, G-IGOO and G-IGOY - this autumn. One of these was actually with BD at one time, formerly as G-SMDB, so it'll be coming home again! They'll be re-registered G-TOYF, G-TOYG and G-TOYH. Previous -TOYs came though ATC at either Lasham or Southend, so I suspect these three will do the same.

FWIW, I understand one of these three MAY be fitted with APB winglets and then monitored against one of the other "newbies" to allow WW to assess whether the suggested fuel burn reductions on longer sectors can be achieved.

Hi all,

ATC Lasham currently have a contract to mantain a lot of the easyJet 737-300/NG fleet. A lot of the -300's are coming off of lease, so are going to other airlines.

Currently have three in at the moment: G-IGOI, G-EZYI, not sure of the other one, will find out though.

Southend is almost becoming a mini Luton! ;)

Regards
