BIRD’S EYE VIEW
SWOT Analysis of easyJet easyJet is Europe’s leading low fares airline. Formed in 1995 by Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, it has grown rapidly to become Europe’s fourth largest airline by passengers carried. Sir Stelios has credited easyJet’s success to two strategic imperatives. The first was “sweating the assets”, that is making sure that the planes were as full as possible and flying as much as possible. The second was a sophisticated yield management system which would set an infinite number of fares for a given flight, based on the demand and supply position for that flight. The prices for the seats fluctuated depending on the demand for them at a particular time. easyJet was the first LCC to start the sale of its airline tickets online. In 1999, Stelios was voted London Entrepreneur of the Year at the London Electricity Londoner of the Year Awards. In the same year, easyJet was voted «Best Low Cost Airline» by readers of Business Traveler magazine for the first time. easyJet was selected as a Business Superbrand by the Superbrand Council which recognizes companies with an outstanding brand name in November 1999. Other Superbrand companies include such globally-recognized names as Virgin, Coca-Cola and Manchester United. In December 1999, ‘Marketing’ magazine described the launch of easyJet as «one of the 100 great marketing moments of the 20th century». Stelios entered the Guinness Book of Records for being the world’s youngest international scheduled airline chairman when he launched easyJet in 1995 at 28 years of age. Sir Stelios was knighted by the Queen in June 2006, for services to entrepreneurship. The combination of favorable market conditions, robust operating principles and world-class marketing, underpinned by the entrepreneurial vision of the man now known to the public simply as Stelios, brought success and fame to easyJet.

...Easy A The Princess Bride, Groundhog Day, and Ferris Bueller’s Day off have all become some of the great classic comedies of all time. What makes a classic comedies movie? A classic stands the test of time. It does not matter the period the film was made, because people can relate to the storyline in each era. The plots are solid. The films are enjoyed generation after generation. I believe Easy A will be joining this group of classic comedies as move generation moves to the next one. What makes Easy A such a great movie, that will last for generations, is its story. About how one lie can change the way everyone see you. It is a relatable and clever movie, with great humor and quotable one-liners. Easy A is about a high school student, Olive Penderghast, played by the talented Emma Stone, finds herself the victim of her school's "rumor mill". When she lies to her best friend Rhiannon, played by Alyson Michalka that she has a date with a nonexistent community college student, so that she doesn’t have to spend the weekend with Rhiannon and her family. The two of them are over heard in the bathroom the next Monday as Olive lies about her encounter, telling Rhiannon that she lost her virginity that weekend with her fictitious boyfriend. The rumor spreads through the school like wild fire; she soon becomes the scandal of the school after the religious fanatic Marianne decides to make her the school outcast. Meanwhile, Olive is studying "The Scarlet Letter" in the English...

Easy Jet and Ryanair; Pricing Strategies, Flying High with Low Prices

...Easy Jet and Ryanair; pricing strategies Flying high with low prices Introduction Easy jet and Ryanair and the two largest low cost airlines in Europe, they dominate the industry. They introduce low prices to entice customers; the earlier the customer’s book, the cheaper the price. By introducing these prices, Easy Jet and Ryanair have forced other airlines such as British Airways and Lufthansa to lower their prices. Both airlines have copied the American ‘South West airlines’ business model and introduced it to Europe. Easy Jet and Ryanair are able to provide the low prices by maintaining low costs. They cut costs in areas such as administration. With the online booking system, this saves them thousands of pounds every year. While cutting costs, the service given on board flights is not as good as the superior companies such as British Airways and Virgin Atlantic. It doesn’t have to be, as customers know that with the low prices comes low customer service. And for the cheap prices customers pay to fly with Easy Jet and Ryanair, they don’t mind. Ryanair Ryanair is the leading low cost airline in Europe. Founded in 1985 by the Ryan family they began with one flight and one aircraft flying between Waterford and Gatwick airport. Shortly after, they began flying regularly between Dublin airport and London Stanstead, competing with British Airways. ‘Carrying fewer than 700,000 passengers annually in its early years, the figures grew to 21.4 million......

...English 379 March 12, 2013 In the movie easy A, a teen comedy, the main character Olive is initially presented to the viewers as the virginal and feminine high school student who dresses like the average high school student, mostly in pants, and turns out to be transformed into the sex object/pin-up girl to resemble her counterparts in the movie. One being her best friend Rhi and the other Marianne, both whom which throughout the entire movie are always in very short skirts and/or extremely revealing tops, especially Rhiannon. Nonetheless, the one normal, dressing female in the movie, Olive, is then in turn forced and presented as a skank, a whore, and a home wrecker. Although one of the central themes of the movie is the loss of virginity, there are no sex scenes and it does displays a witty, contemporary, modern day spin on Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic novel, The Scarlet Letter. Moreover, the message depicted throughout the movie is that an innocent, little white lie can get blown out of proportion and that teenagers in general are concerned of how others perceive them in their day to day lives. The movie starts off with Olive being portrayed as a virginal, down to earth, average high school student with no cares in the world but is hastily transformed into the slutty female character very commonly used throughout Hollywood films to depict females nowadays. When a little white lie about losing her virginity meant for her best friends ears only gets out of hand......

... Jet Blue, Strategic Review “First class, that’s what’s wrong. It used to be a better meal, now it’s a better life.” — From the film “Jerry McGuire” SAMPLE Business Strategy Empire State College March 12, 2014 Jet Blue, Strategic Review Abstract: A firm’s strategy is defined as its theory about how to gain competitive advantages. (Barney & Hesterly. Strategic Management and Competitive Advantage. pg 4.). In this strategic planning document, we will define Jet Blue’s initial niche and strengths in the market place, review its resources, and suggest a business strategy for continued profitability. Primarily, we will articulate the need to refine its current positioning to regain consumer confidence and grow market share. Overview Formed in 1998, Jet Blue (ticker: JBLU) began commercial air travel operations in February, 2000. Designated as an LCC (“Low Cost Carrier”), it did not launch as a typical no-comfort airline. In reality, Jet Blue was seen as a “value player” (Barney & Hesterly. Strategic Management and Competitive Advantage. Pg. 162). As a new entrant in a mature industry, Jet Blue used specific resources to position itself as a cost leader. These resources are the foundation of our Resource Based View (“RBV”) of the company. We will attempt to compare Jet Blue’s standing with that of Southwest Airlines (ticker: LUV), considered a market leader in its designated regions, and build on a strategy to differentiate the airline.

...EasyJet: Stelios idea and his implementation of easyJet is of having a customer-oriented highly-advertised low-cost airline. The key ideas that really worked for easyJet in there as follows: Business Model: 1. The ideology is to have the airline stay in the air most of the time. EasyJet keeps their airplanes in air almost two times more than the industry average. Their 2 planes are doing the job of 3 planes of other carriers. As a result they reduced some of their fixed and overhead costs. 2. The purpose of the airline was to transit customers from one place to the other without wasting money on customer frills. This saves the airline €14 per passenger. 3. The airline targeted only non-corporate customers who paid themselves for their trip. They removed the business class seats from their airlines and they marketed their airline accordingly with taglines like “Fly to Scotland for the price of a pair of jeans”. 4. They performed yield management to fill as many seats as possible at a demand varied price. The price was also varied upon the timing of the booking of the ticket, the earlier you book a ticket the better deal you get. They also levied heavy penalties to customers for change of plans at the last moment of their journey. 5. The airline encouraged Internet Sales and avoided travel agents and computer reservation system to reduce the operating and overhead costs of the airlines. About 60% of their sales came from internet Sales in October 1999. 6. Stelios...

Easy Rider

...Douglas Salayka Prof. Major Easy Rider Easy rider was a film I couldn’t understand. I have to say I didn't like it. I somewhat respect what the film did for the industry but still I cant full respect it for the scenes of them having sex at the graveyard. That was a bit to much for me. The movie starts out with a cocaine deal, The 2 main characters then wanted to use the money and jet. The scenes of them riding around on motorcycles used music from the time like Born to be wild. At that time it was very new to be using tracks like that in films. For that reason I give the movie bonus points because it did something nobody ever really did at the time. So the 2 men on the road trip find themselves in all sorts of trouble. The film actually used real drugs in the scenes that depicted them using cocaine and marijuana. To me that's crazy, but I know Dennis hopper had to do with this as he was a user at the time. I even read that Jack Nicholson actually came out and said it was real marijuana that he smoked. In class we touched upon why Jack Nicholson died but the other men didn't. I think we came to a consensus that it was just luck that they survived a bit longer but I still don't get that. The biggest thing I want to talk about is the drug tripping scene in the graveyard. Hopper didn't get permission or anything to film there and they were basically having sex on the tombstone of a dead child. If something like this happened now the media would be all over it saying how......

West Jet Case Analysis

...analysis of The West jet, we are going to see how IT, Business Strategy and IT governance can be utilized in upgrading an organization so that it provides better customer service and satisfaction. Analysis :- West Jet Airlines known for its "High Value and Low Fare" was working fine with its in- house small but efficient Information technology services(It worked as the integral growth of the West Jet) until it started facing hindrances in code share. The systems in the west jet were stand- alone systems and were not able to collaborate with the international Airlines Systems. Initially, West Jet selected Sabre to move to International reservation system but it was not commendable. There were some issues with the IT Infrastructure. I perceive not having an IT expertise at an executive level is a major drawback for any growing organization since the business strategies have to be in sync with the IT requirements. Realizing that, the CEO along with other executives signed a contract with Cheryl Smith to be the CIO for The West jet. Since The West jet wanted to use IT to move to next level so Cheryl was responsible for raising the IT systems and infrastructure at par with other Airlines who were also growing at an alarming rate. When Cheryl joined West jet, she had no clear idea about the IT infrastructure of West Jet. She found that there was a major drawback in IT Governance Model of the Organization. I perceive following were the critical issues with The West jet:- *......

Easy Jet

...of this new product offering. Easyjet was particularly successful because it had tight reign on costs and overheads. It could make savings where other airlines could not. For example: i) Easyjet maximised the utilization of assets - with faster turnaround on flights ii) it only flew its aircraft point to point, with no connecting flights - thus it did not incur the costly ticketing procedures associated with flight connections iii) it had no ticketing (paperless office) - customers used e-mail reference numbers to board flights. All these aspects helped to keep its costs to the minimum. Easyjet had effective branding. The brand was developed quickly and it soon obtained recognition for being a “value” airline that was safe. The orange “Easy” brand was very effective. Stelios, was focused at making sure that Easyjet was seen as pro-active airline - one that was focused on limiting the impact on the environment and offering the best possible value for its customers. It delivered on its promises. Easyjet was a pioneer in the use of the internet to both advertise and retail airline tickets. Its Information technology infrastructure had a unique demand and sell application which determined the price of the airline ticket - and helped to ensure flights remained full. Bookings by customers were made online and customers did not need to receive tickets through the post, providing further cost savings. IT infrastructure enabled costs savings, 95% of tickets are currently sold......
