Former EasyJet owner and current 38 per cent stakeholder Stelios Haji-Ioannou yesterday claimed a scalp on the company board in part of his ongoing feud with the airline. The Greek entrepreneur had called for an emergency board meeting to discuss the removal of Sir David Michels, with the deadline for EasyJet’s response looming this Friday. However, sources told City A.M. the airline will announce Sir David’s departure this week, four months before he was originally due to stand down.
