Re: Where did Easyjet fail where others succeeded?

Have a play around EZY's investor presentations: they are a wealth of information and knowledge across all aspects of its business. For example, it seeks to be the #1 or #2 airline at all the primary airports its serves as detailed on slides 22 and 23 here: http://corporate.easyjet.com/~/media/Files...

EZY is very large at LTN, so it's not really fair to say it is a W6 airport.

BA CF is also the dominant airline at LCY.
