    In 2016, over 8,349 EasyJet flights were either cancelled, or delayed over three hours or diverted due to severe disruption by external macro factors such as strikes, severe weather, terrorist attacks, and other airport issues. The total impact of these external events on profit was estimated at £150million (Annual Report 2016). PESTLE is used in strategy to analyse the macro environment and identify how external events in the political, economic, social, technological, environmental and legal environments might impact individual organisations within an industry. Managers use the PESTLE tool as an aid when studying key drivers of change in the external environment. These key drivers of change constitute opportunities and threats for firms and PESTLE helps identify them overcome. However, PESTLE is only a starting point since other frameworks such as SWOT and Porters Five Forces have to be used in conjunction to help firms like EasyJet utilise internal core competencies (strengths) so as to take advantage of opportunities while neutralising threats in its industry.
