British airline easyJet posts bigger-than-expected first half loss

LONDON, May 16 (Reuters) - British budget airline easyJet posted a bigger than expected loss in the first half of the year, though said it still expected to meet full-year targets due to strong cost control.

Headline loss before tax of 212 million pounds compared to an average analyst estimate of a pretax loss of 195.75 million pounds, according to Thomson Reuters estimates.

“Our expectations for the full year are in line with current consensus market expectations,” Chief Executive Carolyn McCall said.
