Interesting to find out the incoming CEO is being paid more than Carolyn Mccall. This is at the start, whereas CM's figure is her most recent (of the 7 years at EZY)

I might get they pay a premium for ex-rival talent (he'd been on gardening leave for a while), but what extra can Easyjet possibly get from TUI that they need to pay more for?

TUI passengers booked through EZY flights?

That already happens. TUI and Thomas Cook use Easyjet a lot for their package holidays.

I've really no idea whether Mr Lundgren's remuneration package is justified, but they should be aware that a lot of flak may be coming their way and that gender pay gap is a sensitive and topical issue.

I don't know what percentage of easyjet's employees are female, I can say that around 50% of their customers are. Hopefully they'll find something better to say than "His remuneration is broadly in line with the current CEO."

Used to do a fair bit with Jet2 as well, but since they grew the Jet2Holidays brand, they soon stopped. Then they used Monarch, so since went under, it's either U2 or FR. Ryanair probably could offer allocations cheaper if they wanted to, but they're happy to sell all of the seats themselves, leaving Easyjet.

I still suspect more of a TUI/Easyjet tie up of some kind coming up soon

A TUI/EasyJet tie up in Germany would be very interesting...

In senior positions, remuneration is a matter of negotiation. Perhaps Mr Lundgren is a better negotiator than Ms McCall.

So where does Britannia/Thomson for into all this. Are TUI using the LCC's for some low demand/density routes? I suspect the pax who pay normally expecting a Thomson and then travel on an LoCo will not be happy campers. Even if they are notified in advance they might still expect Thomson service. How does this type of marketing work?

It's made clear on the website. From EDI they also use BACF for holidays in Malaga. Essentially they have a single 738 at EDI which is intensively used in the summer. If they were to serve every holiday destination they would need to base a second a/c.

Having flown both airlines (TUI and EZY) in the last 4 months I can confirm there is not much difference in the two. I doubt most pax would even remember who they flew on once the holiday was over. TUI have no TVs on short haul, no comp food or drink, no preorder food or drink - its all buy on board and the menus are similar.

Without sounding defensive..... there is indeed very little difference, short haul, between EZY and TUI. Operationally, they are different in places but joe public doesn't recognise those.

Thomas Cook began taking allocation on EZY several years ago now. A few people were a bit suspicious ("i've seen Airline") but most were pleasantly surprised...EZY's onboard soft product is pretty decent. Furthermore, EZY flight times were generally better as they don't do that many true overnight flights and as such, there was anecdotal evidence that the holiday cost was actually a little more expensive than those flying with TCX.

Just because the new boss is ex TUI does not mean easyJet is going to suddenly jump into bed with them. All it indicates is that the man has a range of experience in running a reasonably sized airline/holiday operation. I think many people are adding 2 + 2 and getting an answer of 113.

If Lundgren has Holidays experience, maybe we could see a development on the 'Easy jet Holidays' brand. Rather than just put flight/transfer/hotel together into one package (Anyone can do that), could we see hotel ownership in the long term?

I think Stelios would have an issue with that, he already has easyhotels. It would be nice to see a more active easyjet holidays product though

In my role where you start on the pay scale depends on previous experience. It would be quite legitimate therefore to pay more to someone with a background in running airlines and holidays than someone from the media.

Also, for a true comparison you would also need to consider things like share packages. It might be that case that McCall did very well out of the overall increase in share price.

Seen that Easyjet have increased the baggage allowance. 15kg from 8.99 and 23kg from 13.99

bit of a conspiracy theory here....
New CEO may have focus on holiday sales (Coming from TUI), Holidays need more allowance to be more appealing.
Jet2 like to brag about 22kg allowance, so maybe this is a dig at them?

Or could be that Ryanair have 15/20kg options, so they want to do one better than them.

...or just because they can, but the extra cost of fuel would mean there is a reason behind it

Thoughts anyone?

The hold bag change has been planned for many months, long before the selection of CEO would have been taken.
