Ally I too have used travel republic but only for accommodation,(I always book flights direct with airline) & never had a problem with them but you can't believe how many complaints re flights & hotels cancelled when travel is imminent, also people turning up at hotel only to find they are not booked in. Travel republic as said is only a travel search website as stated in previous post, all their bookings are done through a third party, many people don't read the terms & conditions  on  travelrepublic website  that the  contract is between them (the booker)  and the provider of such (Flights/Accomm etc)  and blame travel republic for it.

Easyjet flights to London (Gatwick, Southend, Luton) for April to end of June 2013 are now available.
Didn't check any other UK departure airports but presumably these are either up now or will be soon.

Just booked from 7th to 29th May to from Luton.
2 people return, hand luggage only & absolutely no rip off extras, for a total £128 (i.e. £64 each).
This includes a £9 Administration Fee + Debit Card Fee

Overall, not bad Smile

PS - you can now pre-book seats, for a fee (from £3 per person per flight), if you feel the need.
If not they are "automatically allocated" so it looks like Speedy Boarding has been ditched.

Stansted is still a no go airport for Faro

After reading your post Dice went on the easyjet site for flights from Bristol 2013.
Did a search booking for last week in June.  error message came back flights only available up to 16th of June so did a searcch for 1 week 9th-16th.
Days and prices came up.Logged off, by the time I informed other family members of flight days and prices, logged back on, got error message flights only available untill March 24th 2013 ??
Thing is I checked Glasgow-Faro as some of family live nearer there for that week prices and days came up, but prices were to dear. Now they are only available till end of March 2013 ??

I've just been on the Newcastle flight search and the diary comes up with up to the end of June. When you try and book them it says you can only book up to the end of March. This is usually because they have just updated the diary but not the actual flights and they usually follow within 48 hours (my experience in the past). Keep looking over the next few days Malagabob:-) x

EasyJet have just announced they are stopping their speedy boarding arrangements in favour of seat allocation on line and at check in; £12 a go !! more revenue for them, but at least it should stop the usual rugby scrum situation.
