It was a case of planes, trains and automobiles for the FTSE today as key indices flew higher. EasyJet (EZJ), International Consolidated Airlines (IAG), Lookers (LOOK) and Go-Ahead Group (GOG) were in the news. Sentiment was helped by gains on Wall St as the US trade deficit narrowed.
Go-Ahead Group's overall profits rose by 11.1% in the year to 27 June, slightly ahead of its expectations. But it warned that the bus division would not achieve an operating profit of £100m until 2016-17, a year later than originally anticipated.
