My name is HB-JZI, an A319 of the easyJet Switzerland Airbus family. I now have a new adopted stepbrother, an A320 called HB-JZX. I wonder how he will be used!

I saw problems for easyJet passengers recently

In this next installment of my (HB-JZI easyJet Airbus A319) secret diary I can say something about the period from Christmas 2010 to the start of 2011. I had a difficult time, as did some of my Swiss brothers and quite a lot of our passengers.

A bad end to a terrible year has been followed by a bad start to 2011!

I (HB-JZI) am back at last to help out.

Now that it is crunch time for the airport and airlines, I have been allowed to come back. I hope that all goes well, that N recovers and J does not oversleep again, that I can get back from Brussels and that all my readers get where they want to go (and back again, in  due course) and have a truly Merry Christmas.

Compensation to passengers should be in order, including a family member of mine who was booked on the first flight this morning.

Swiss president Doris Leuthard tells you to fly with Swiss rather than easyJet!

According to some Swiss-French newspapers (but not Geneva papers), OFAC think that easyJet has made changes to avoid another fiasco this Christmas. The facts suggest that OFAC is over-optimistic and mistaken!
