Air Canada: “Air Canada expects its full year 2009 CASM, excluding fuel expense, to increase between 4.0% and 5.0% compared to the full year 2008 (as opposed to the full year 2009 CASM (excluding fuel expense) increase of between 5.5% and 6.5% previously projected in Air Canada's press release dated 08-May-2009). The difference is largely attributable to a stronger Canadian dollar versus the USD and its impact on US denominated expenses. For the third quarter of 2009, Air Canada expects CASM, excluding fuel expense, to increase between 5.5% and 6.5% compared to the third quarter of 2008,” Company statement.
