European airline stocks fell heavily yesterday, reflecting weakness in wider markets and a profit warning from easyJet.
easyJet slumped 16% – its biggest one-day fall since 2004 – as it warned its first-half loss may double, due to rising fuel costs and flight cancellations. Ryanair and Jet2.com parent Dart Group also fell heavily.
Air France-KLM Group slid 4.2%, while British Airways fell 1.7%.
