Headline profit before tax, excluding costs associated with its new operations in Berlin Tegel, came in at £8 million against a £212 million loss last year

This Airline Slammed A Passenger With A $94 Fee For The Most Absurd Reason

  This Airline Slammed A Passenger With A $94 Fee For The Most Absurd Reason From the time we book a flight until the moment we get off the plane, we're crossing our fingers that we won't get hit with a hidden fee for something stupid like booking by phone or accidentally overpacking and having an ever-so-slightly overweight bag. Because nobody likes the feeling that comes when you realize your decision to bring that extra pairs of shoes just set you back $50. But however ridiculous and bothersome the fees we've dealt before are, they're nothing compared to one recently charged to a Thai Airways passenger. According to Travel + Leisure, this traveler's long last name got him saddled with a $94 fee.

Easyjet , the UK's first and largest low-cost carrier (LCC) is nudging ever closer to becoming the UK's largest airline in terms of number of aircraft. Yesterday they received another brand-new A320 from the Airbus factory, their fifth this month.

The early Easter and “capacity reductions by other airlines” – including the collapse of Monarch and Air Berlin and the winter withdrawal of Ryanair from the UK domestic market – also helped boost the firm’s sales performance.

Boss Johan Lundgren said: “EasyJet has delivered an excellent performance reporting a profit of £8 million, one of our best results ever in the winter trading period (excluding the one-off impact of the start-up of our Tegel operation).

“Total revenue was above £2 billion for the first time, up almost 20% year on year. This was driven by a record number of passengers.”

This was on top of a £24 million charge for the integration of Berlin Tegel.
