    UPDATE 2-Dart Group sees demand boost after Thomas Cook collapse

    Dart Group, the owner of British airline and tour operator Jet2, raised its profit guidance on Friday as it boosted passenger numbers following the collapse of former rival Thomas Cook last month, sending its shares soaring almost 13%. Dart, which runs package holiday company Jet2holidays, said it had received good levels of late season bookings in its leisure travel business, with strong demand for its flight-only and package holiday products. Thomas Cook, the world's oldest travel company whose shops have been a feature of British town centres for generations, collapsed last month, stranding tens of thousands of passengers as its UK business went into liquidation.

    UPDATE 2-European shares rise on trade optimism, Germany up 1%

    * China willing to make partial trade deal with U.S. Oct 9 (Reuters) - German shares logged their best day in six weeks on Wednesday, leading the charge among European shares, as sentiment was lifted by signs of progress in U.S.-China trade relations a day ahead of high-level talks between the two parties. Reports that China was still open to agreeing to a partial trade deal with the United States, and that Beijing was offering to increase its annual purchases of U.S. agricultural products, came as signs of compromise, but analysts remain skeptical.

    European Stocks Drop as Trade Tension, Brexit Dial Up the Gloom

    (Bloomberg) -- European stocks sank, snapping two days of gains, amid renewed trade tensions between China and the U.S. and as Brexit talks faced yet another impasse.The Stoxx Europe 600 Index was down 0.9% as of 12:51 p.m. in London, with all industry groups lower. China indicated it would strike back after the U.S. blacklisted eight of its tech giants, while Bloomberg reported that the Trump administration is moving ahead with discussions about possible restrictions on capital flows into China, with a particular focus on investments made by U.S. government pension funds.“There’s a clear escalation between the U.S. and China today, which doesn’t bode well for a deal later this week,” said Alexandre Baradez, chief market analyst at IG France. “A big chunk of the gains in European stocks this year has been on hopes of a trade deal, so clearly the risk is on the downside at this point.”The drop in European stocks was broad based, with travel and leisure shares among the worst hit after EasyJet Plc postponed an update on its outlook for next year. Banks also tumbled, with both Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank down 3.8%.In the U.K., Prime Minister Boris Johnson told German Chancellor Angela Merkel a Brexit deal is essentially impossible if the EU demands Northern Ireland should stay in the bloc’s customs union, sending the pound lower. The FTSE 100, which tends to have a negative correlation to the currency, fell 0.2%, while the more domestic-focused FTSE 250 index lost 0.9%.Last week, European equities had their worst drop in two months as concerns about global growth sent investors running for the exit.Among the biggest movers, Qiagen NV tumbled 20% after reporting disappointing earnings and as its chief, Peer Schatz, decided to step down. Uniper SE dropped 7.5% after Fortum Oyj agreed to acquire a majority stake in the company.To contact the reporters on this story: Ksenia Galouchko in London at kgalouchko1@bloomberg.net;Namitha Jagadeesh in London at njagadeesh@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Blaise Robinson at brobinson58@bloomberg.net, John ViljoenFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    EasyJet says BA and Ryanair strikes have boosted its profits

    Airline says headline pretax profits will be £420m to £430m, down on last year’s £578m. EasyJet has been given a lift by recent strikes at rivals British Airways and Ryanair, which boosted its revenues and profits. The budget airline expects to make headline pretax profits of £420m to £430m for the year to 30 September. This is at the top end of City forecasts but will still be below last year’s profits of £578m. More than 2,000 BA flights were grounded last month when pilots went on strike for two days. BA owner IAG has warned that the walkouts would reduce this year’s profits by €137m (£122m). There are additional costs caused by threatened strikes by ground staff at Heathrow airport and lower bookings at its Vueling carrier, which means IAG’s full-year operating profits will be €215m lower than last year’s €3.48bn. Ryanair pilots also took industrial action in September, prompting some travellers to switch to other airlines, although Ryanair flights ran as scheduled in the end. EasyJet said the strikes helped its revenue per seat increase by 0.8% in the second half, compared with its previous expectation that the figure would be “slightly down”. Its chief executive, Johan Lundgren, said: “As a result of our self-help initiatives and the increased demand due to disruption at British Airways and Ryanair, we anticipate achieving headline profit before tax for the full year 2019 of between £420m and £430m, in the upper half of our previous guidance range.” EasyJet had previously pencilled in a full-year profit of £400m to £440m. Richard Hunter, head of markets at trading platform Interactive Investor, said: “The unfortunate demise of Thomas Cook could also provide further opportunities.” He added, however: “The full ramifications of the UK’s departure from the EU have yet to wash through, either in terms of any future sterling weakness, which could crimp consumer demand or indeed additional travel regulations, which would add further cost. “Meanwhile, the industry remains one typified by an intensity of competition which has seen a number of smaller players go to the wall over recent years.” Thomas Cook, the world’s oldest travel firm, collapsed last month after running out of cash. It has struggled to keep up with changing customer habits and intense competition from budget carriers such as easyJet.

    EasyJet Says Profit at Top End of Forecasts

    (Bloomberg) -- EasyJet Plc said earnings for the year through September were toward the top end of its forecasts, helped by strikes at British Airways and Ryanair Holdings Plc.The unrest at EasyJet’s biggest rivals spurred demand and sent revenue per seat, a proxy for fares, up 0.8% in the second half despite earlier predictions of a slide, the Luton, England-based carrier said in a statement Tuesday.The figures weren’t enough to quell investor concerns that EasyJet had relied too much on disruption elsewhere, and that it faces tough times in an operating environment that has seen a spate of travel-company collapses this year. The shares fell the most since May.Chief Executive Officer Johan Lundgren said forward bookings for 2020 are in line a year ago and that capacity growth will be at the lower end of the historic range, something that should further bolster fares. Efforts to curb delays and cancellations in poor weather or technical glitches are also bearing fruit.Sanford C. Bernstein analyst Daniel Roeska said in a note that the full-year numbers were in line with his estimates but that it’s not clear how well EasyJet would have performed without a helping hand from the BA and Ryanair strikes and the collapse last month of Thomas Cook Group Plc.The stock fell as much as 5.8% and was trading 4.7% lower at 1,117 pence as of 8:23 a.m. in London. The shares are barely changed for the year, valuing EasyJet at 4.44 billion pounds ($5.5 billion).EasyJet and its peers should continue to gain from the exit of weaker operators, Damian Brewer, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets, said in a note to clients. Demand is poised to exceed capacity this winter, he said, spurring an increase in fares after a period of sustained oversupply.EasyJet said 12-month pretax profit was between 420 million pounds and 430 million pounds, after earlier predicting 400 million pounds to 440 million pounds. The carrier reported a profit of 578 million pounds in fiscal 2019.As least four carriers have failed in the past month alone amid fluctuating fuel prices, a glut of seats and a slowing European economy. Slovenian flag carrier Adria Airways and XL Airways and Aigle Azur, both of France, folded alongside Thomas Cook, whose collapse led to the biggest peacetime airlift in British history as stranded passengers were brought home.To contact the reporter on this story: Siddharth Philip in London at sphilip3@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Tara Patel at tpatel2@bloomberg.net, Christopher JasperFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
