Air France-KLM: “The group continues to adapt to the economic environment by reducing capacity. In the passenger business capacity is down 2.0% for the Winter ‘09 season while cargo is also continuing to reduce…lack of visibility over the timing and strength of the economic recovery means we must pursue our efforts in terms of cost reduction. Our objective is to return to operating break-even, excluding the impact of the pre-2009 fuel hedges, by the beginning of the next financial year,” Company statement.
