easyJet: “easyJet expects to grow capacity, measured in seats flown, by around 3.5% in the first half of the year and by 5% for the full year. Forward bookings for the first half of the 2014 financial year are in line with the prior year. The first quarter will be impacted by the tough comparison with the prior year due to strong post-Olympics demand in the UK in October 2012 and by a number of European governments imposing travel restrictions to Egypt. The situation in Egypt will reduce first half revenue per seat growth at constant currency by 0.7 percentage points, and the movement of Easter into the second half of the year will reduce first half revenue per seat growth at constant currency by a further 1.5 percentage points. easyJet therefore expects revenue per seat at constant currency for the first half of the financial year to be very slightly up on the prior year.” Source: Company statement, 19-Nov-2013.
