EasyJet to remove some seats to fly with less crew

EasyJet plans to remove seats on some of  its planes this summer, so that it can operate flights with fewer cabin crew.
 
The airline is battling staff  shortages as it attempts to return to pre-pandemic levels of  service.
 
By taking out the back row of  seating on its A319 fleet, EasyJet said it will be able to fly with three cabin crew instead of  four.
 
That would limit numbers on board to a maximum 150 passengers.
 
EasyJet said it was an effective way of  operating the fleet while building additional resilience and flexibility into its operations.
 
Flights would still meet Civil Aviation Authority regulations on the required number of  cabin crew, which is based on the number of  physical seats, rather than passengers on board.
