easyJet: “With nearly half of summer seats now sold, in line with the prior year, second half total revenue per seat is slightly ahead of the prior year with planned improvement in yields, bag charges and other ancillary revenues. Consequently full year total revenue per seat at constant currency is expected to be broadly flat. Based on our performance in the first half, the impact of the strengthening of the euro on our cost base, which has been largely offset by a compensating benefit on revenues and current yield trends, the outlook for the full year remains in line with expectations at current fuel and exchange rates,” Company statement.
