How long did the GB Airways Airbuses last when EZY took them over.......!
The GB aircraft had the wrong engines to stay long term, as I understand it all the Air Berlin buses are cfm powered. It all depends on the leases as to how long they stay around the place..

Woldwide by Easyjet.

The Isle of Man Government website, gov.im has announced that EasyJet has started to take on worldwide routes...


easyJet, Europe's leading airline, has today launched ‘Worldwide by easyJet’ - the first global airline connections service by a European low fares airline.
Legacy airlines have traditionally offered connectivity through costly and complex interline and codeshare agreements and procedures – with Worldwide by easyJet these will be replicated by self-connect and sales partnerships through a digital, virtual hub which will offer the same sort of connectivity but more simply and efficiently.
With seats available from today, 'Worldwide by easyJet' enables customers to seamlessly connect their easyJet flight with partner airline flights with launch partners WestJet and Norwegian using the GatwickConnects product.

Not seen that mentioned anywhere else...

Ryanair now have a growing competitive challenge from Easyjet. Seems Easyjet are kicking Ryanair when they are down, following the 'rostering' problem.

The competitive landscape is changing very fast, interesting to see how much profit expansion Easyjet achieve as a direct result of partnering with Norwegian and Westjet.

mik3bravo....Get a grip.
Ryanair shares up 5% on Tuesday when they announced profits for the full year still within original guidance of up to Euro 1.5 Billion!.

How does RYR treble profits with only a doubling of fleet size over a few years? Load factors are similar, fuel costs have been similar. It can't be that simple. Add-on charges have increased significantly. Profit used to be €4/pax, then €6 it's now €10. And no-one asks delving questions. If it was that easy everyone would be doing it.

But this is an easy jet thread, so I apologise for being sucked in by the previous posts. The Air Berlin expansion route could lead to profitable times for ez. Hope so.

RAT 5 -
Profits increase exponentially (if you control costs) because you spread your overheads more thinly. For example, the costs of the management team are less per unit if you spread them across 100 aircraft than 50. Also, larger operators can negotiate more favourable prices, reducing the unit cost of (for example) aircraft.
That's how the magic is worked....

RAT 5.

Charge all PAX 3€ per sector and then refuse to honour compensation claims.

Must add millions to their annual profits.

Surprised EJ don't also do it. Ooop!

So if BA, KLM, AF etc scrap their crappy free sandwich for economy class europe; it must cost >€3 each to make it and deliver it to the a/c, they could boost their profits by the same as RYR adding €3, (EU 261 charge) to each pax. If it is that easy, and they wouldn't lose any pax, why are they not doing it. Or will I be head-hunted as CFO in the next few days?

Fuel hedging is a big factor in ensuring margin expansion remains strong, some hedge better than others.

Well that's what I was hinting at in my post. Perhaps a more interesting question tho, is how RA have been able to get away with it for so many years.

Because comparing Ryanair with British Airways is like comparing apples and oranges regardless of the BOB service on BA.

By the way the IATA codes for EasyJet is EZ and Ryanair is FR not EJ and RA respectively!

Indeed 5% up on results day, but that still leaves them 15% down compared to mid August before it all hit the fan.

You know the famous quote about statistics right?
