easyJet: "With nearly half of summer seats now sold, in line with the same period last year, the performance and outlook for the business continues as outlined in the 26 March 2012 trading update. Capacity, measured in seats flown, for the second half of the year, is planned to increase by 7% assuming no significant disruption, giving an increase of around 5% for the full year compared to 2011. Second half total revenue per seat at constant currency is expected to be up in the low to mid single digit range. Continued good progress on the easyJet Lean initiatives means that on a constant currency basis, cost per seat excluding fuel should increase by around 2% in the second half of the year and by around 2% for the full year assuming no significant disruption arising from events such as airspace congestion during the Olympics and external industrial action.” Source: Company statement, 09-May-2012.
