Slightly off-topic but as Easyjet's profit guidance has been mentioned, apart from dividend payouts are their any 'perks' through holding Easyjet shares? Does holding shares offer any form of priority boarding or the option of dividend reinvestment in shares. Anyone know?
In a word No and that goes for Ryanair as well.

Easyjet have paid 1 dividend and there has been no indication if they will ever pay another one.

The issue with Airline shares is that events which have nothing to do with the company can drive the share price down quickly and there is nothing they can do about it..................911 or Volcano etc etc.

The rick element is significant on Airline stocks and provided you can afford to lose the money you invested or you have a balance in your share portfolio then it should theoretically be ok.

(I am not a financial adviser nor is PPrune a financial advice site so anything stated is my opinion solely and FSA recommends you should take financial advice from a registered financial adviser before investing.)

I would think and hope that they are serious looking at setting up at BHX, they start BFS later this month and rumours about EDI when their new based aircraft are in place.
There are lots of opportunities for EZY at BHX.

Something between not very high, and slightly less than that I would have thought.

If they had any intentions in that direction the time to have done it would have surely been pronto after the BMI Baby closure had been announced. Could say the same about BHX too, but the chances there are probably slightly, and only slightly higher.

easyflyer, good to see MAN-KEF and the return of some existing interesting routes for summer 2013. If a 7th A/C is coming to MAN then some more routes are likely to be in the pipeline? Am I correct?

Can't believe they are cutting back again at Stansted. Seems now Alicante will no longer be served from 17 June 2013 as well as Barcelona ending on January 6. Why would they cancel 2 of the most popular sun routes that they offer??

It's outrageous what they are doing at Stansted. How they can see more benefits flying these routes from Southend instead of Stansted is beyond me. I'd understand if a few frequency cuts were made on duplicate routes at Southend to operate them alongside Stansted, but completely axing popular destinations like Faro, Fuerteventura, Madeira and now Barcelona and Alicante from Stansted and not replacing them with anything new is rediculous!

BAA will sell Stansted fairly soon anyway and almost certainly by next summer. At this point they should be looking very closely at possible growth opportunities and preparing to build good relationships with the new owners from the start. Instead they decide it's the best option to cut back in time for their takeover in favour of rival airports. That's not really a very good first impression at all nor is it showing many signs of commitment to the airport! This could be a huge disadvantage to EasyJet and I hope that if they really do carry out these further cuts, that they deeply regret it!!!

Angry

Isn't it just. Wouldn't surprise me now if Malaga and Palma were to be dropped the way it's going. Never thought anything like this would bother me so much but I'm fuming! I can only hope they put up more flights in due course, but can't see much chance of it to be honest!

If I had to take a guess at the reason for dropping STN-BCN and STN-ALC I would suggest it is not unconnected with events at LGW, where BA next summer are introducing 3 flights per day to both BCN and ALC. In other words a whole lot of extra capacity in the Spanish resorts market.

SEN has not come off unscathed either. There are reductions in frequency to ALC, BCN and AGP, the aircraft instead being used for the new VCE service.

If BA are introducing 3 daily flights to BCN and ALC from Gatwick then why haven't they cut the services from Gatwick? Why would Stansted suffer a complete loss of those routes because of that? EasyJet are competitive enough to maintain capacity to both ALC and BCN from all their London airports despite BA's move.

You may say that they wouldn't cut Gatwick because they'd reduce their share of passengers on the route, but axing Stansted flights gives it soley to Ryanair, who is a much bigger rival than BA to EasyJet. If BA were to drop/reduce those routes in the future, then EasyJet would have a hard time regaining those passengers it's lost to Ryanair.

I very much doubt they'd give in to Ryanair at Stansted because of 3 new daily flights with BA from Gatwick. I'd say the two events are totally unrelated. Plus it doesn't explain why further frequency cuts have been made on other routes including Glasgow, Munich and Naples.

I would have thought one answer is that LGW is easyJet's prime London base and presumably attracts the best yields, so protecting those yields may be the priority.
" Not Giving in " to Ryanair may not be high on the agenda. As regards the other route frequency reductions, yes, there does appear to be a pattern.

With EasyJet slowly chipping away at their Stansted routes surely this could pave the way for someone else to jump in and take over where they left off. Big mistake in my opinion as Stansted has a huge catchment area and is well established when compared to Southend. Great to leave the good folks who use Stansted with the choice of that penny pinching pile of rubbish known as RyanAir. Thanks EasyJet.

The reason is to allow LTN and STN to have less cross over of routes and pax.

Not sure about that large catchment for STN.

Where? NE London, East Anglia including Cambridge? From NE London other aiports can be accessed quite easily. Will be helped by Crossrail. They must protect Gatwick which has a really large catchment of the well heeled. LTN will have 50% more stands and has a MUCH better catchment too - Coventry and Corby to London including Bucks and Herts (well heeled). SEN novel but I suspect they have a good deal, still good for NE London and pensioners of the Essex Coast.

STN looks like the weakest link to me. If you have to consolidate it is the one to go.
