EasyJet will remove back seats of some of its Airbus A319s so they can fly with fewer crew

EasyJet plans to remove seats on some of its A319s this summer, so that it can operate flights with fewer cabin crew.

By removing seats on the back row of their A319 planes, the company will be able to fly with a smaller amount of crew – going down from four staff to three.

As well as lowering the amount of crew, passenger numbers will also decline to 150.

The Civil Aviation Authority’s requirements for the number of crew members needed per flight based on the amount of passengers flying.

In a statement made by easyJet to PA news agency, they described the change as an “effective way” of operating its fleet this summer.

The statement read: ““This summer we will be operating our UK A319 fleet with a maximum of 150 passengers onboard and three crew in line with CAA regulations.
