Daily Digit: EasyJet's Profit Soars


51% is today's daily digit in Europe - the rise in full-year profit at easyJet. The UK budget airline earned 478 million pounds and increased sales by 10.5 percent. It's largely thanks to its new allocated seating service and a surge in late summer bookings. It's also added flexible ticketing allowing passengers to change their flight up to two hours before scheduled departure time.
