Budget airline easyJet has posted a 27.9% tumble in pre-tax profits to £495 million for the year to September 30, from £686 million a year prior, after the plunging pound cost it £88 million.
It also lost around £150 million from "unprecedented" events. Airlines have been knocked by a combination of political turmoil, terror attacks, strikes, and intense competition in the sector.
The airline said it was planning a review over the next year to make "meaningful" savings and a "simpler, more efficient" company.
The low-cost carrier said a series of "extraordinary events" including terror attacks across Europe and strikes will cause profit losses.Read the full story ›

Industrial action by easyJet pilots has been suspended while new proposals on tackling fatigue are being considered, the British Airline Pilots Association (Balpa) said.
Some 2,000 pilots at the budget airline were balloted over concerns that rising levels of fatigue risked "serious health and safety concerns".
However, in last minute talks proposals to mitigate pilot fatigue have been put on the table.
A statement said: "As a result, while this proposal is being consulted on by Balpa members, we are suspending serving strike notice on the company."
Brian Strutton, Balpa's general secretary, said it did not mean the dispute was over but said it was right to suspend the action as they consult their members.
Industrial action by pilots at budget airline easyJet looks increasingly likely after members voted overwhelmingly in favour of the move.Read the full story ›
