When a competitor launched a no-frills airline two years ago, the owner of easyJet and 10 co-workers donned orange jumpsuits, boarded the rival's inaugural flight and passed out free tickets for their own carrier. That irreverence typifies easyJet chairman Stelios Haji-Ioannou, whose growing network of "easy" enterprises uses the Internet to build a common brand and to cut transaction costs radically.
