Check out EasyJet site. London Gatwick to Heraklion from March to September.
happy New year to you all.
Is it a new route or something?

Their email format used to be [email protected] so if you can find the name of a senior EJ person, try sending an email direct. In the past it has bypassed the log jam and been a useful tactic.

We're also trying to sort a weekend away later in the year to another venue via Ryanair & their site only goes to 15th September which is just as annoying. So eJ are not alone, but I'm afraid you get what you pay for. There's probably only 1 winner in all this, The Bland Group, who've got their £103.5m tucked away somewhere.
But then are BA much better? They sent me an email on 3rd January asking if I wanted to add extras to a booking for April they would no longer be operating.
The OFT, who was the regulatory authority, released it's 20 page report on the takeover last Thursday OFT eJ/GB merger report which includes that
"The OFT found that a number of potential competitors remained at both LGW and London airports generally, and that GB Airways was limited in its ability to compete with easyJet pre-merger by the terms of its franchise agreement with BA. The OFT found that the merger could even result in enhanced competition between easyJet and BA, and hence there would not be a weakening of potential competition as a result of the merger"
but I presume that relates to the shorter routes where other carriers provide alternatives, i.e. not Crete.
I'm no legal beagle but of course the report makes no mention of the guarantee that the "full" summer timetable will be honoured, in fact it is mainly concerned with overlap routes, slots etc & the much bigger picture.
I guess we'll all have to rely on the original BA statement "On completion of the purchase of GB Airways by easyJet, customers who hold a BA/GB booking involving any travel from 30 March 2008 to the destinations below will travel on an easyJet flight." until the October eJ schedule is released.

"From 30th March 2008 easyJet plans to fly the published GB Airways summer schedule under the easyJet brand. On completion of the purchase of GB Airways by easyJet, customers who hold a GB Airways booking involving any travel from 30th March 2008 will travel on an easyJet flight. Alternatively they can claim a refund. Further details will be provided by easyJet once the purchase is finalised.
I regret that I am unable to answer your specific questions (or offer details on how to obtain a refund) until the purchase has been finalised, which is expected in early 2008. Please wait to find more information published on easyJet.com and BA.com."
We can only wait and see.

Details pretty well as expected with 1 free hold bag up to 20kg per passenger plus 1 free sports equipment bag. So I guess my old golf bag cover, which is about the size of a coffin for a 30 stone man, will have to come out of storage & can be used to transport the gallons of raki & olive oil back!
So, if you've been waiting like I have, you might want to check your emails and look amongst the 3000 spam items at around 13.39, if sent at the same time as mine.
