EasyJet to take out seats so it can fly with fewer crew


Well-known member
I've been wondering ... For a budget airline where seats may sell for 10-20 £/$/€, is the profit off 6 seats actually worth the cost of an extra flight attendant?
Must be marginal.

You'd think aircraft manufacturers and airlines would aim for seat numbers at or just below the multiples of 50 as a routine thing. Or is the number of FAs per 'n' seats different in different jurisdictions and not an international standard?
