In 2007-2008 the airlines most feared the rising cost of fuel and, especially in the US, used the expense to dramatically cut service, scale back operations, retire aircraft and reduce capacity. But the positive effects of those actions were almost immediately negated by the recession, which brought a whole new set of problems.
Mother nature is going to cost easyJet as much as GBP100 million this year, but the UK-based LCC does not expect that to prevent it from posting a healthy profit. Winter snow disruptions in 2009 and 2010 resulted in losses of approximately GBP25 million. The recent ash-related airspace shut downs are expected to cost another GBP50-75 million.
Aviation headlines in the Middle East tend to be dominated by the ambitious sixth freedom hub players (the ‘Big Three’: Emirates, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways). However, there are some major developments at the second tier full service carriers in the region, such as Oman Air, Royal Jordanian, Gulf Air and Middle East Airlines, as featured in this report. These carriers are reshaping competition in and beyond the region and are being reshaped themselves by dynamic change in the Middle East.
Union leaders expressed alarm at easyJet’s decision to stop flying from East Midlands Airport and to scale back its Luton operation, which could threatens about 250 jobs. Up to 1.5 million passengers will be effected by the plan to axe 360 flights a week.
Legacy airlines worldwide have adopted varying ways of responding to LCC competition. Now the economic downturn has sapped their most lucrative business customers, the challenge becomes even greater. But, hampered by long-standing union agreements and huge fixed investments in infrastructure, a growing number of carriers are trialling new products within their existing operating structure, in an attempt to segment the market and fend off competitive incursions.
