Air France-KLM: "Bookings for the Summer season are positively oriented, in line with the recent trend. However the uncertain outlook for the global economic environment together with the volatility of fuel prices and the euro make forecasts for the latter part of the year difficult. Nevertheless, in the second half, the group should benefit from the first significant effects of Transform 2015. In this context, its objective is to generate an operating result above the 195 million euros realised in the second half of 2011. On this basis, it is on track to achieve a reduction in net debt at 31 December 2012 compared with 31 December 2011.” Source: Company statement, 30-Jul-2012.
