Air France-KLM: “The current economic climate continues to impact international trade as well as business confidence, leading to volatility in both traffic and revenues. As early as July the group took the decision to reduce planned winter 2011 long-haul capacity growth from 5% to 3%. However, this difficult environment is being exacerbated by volatile currency movements and a high fuel price. In these conditions, the group anticipates a negative operating result for the quarter October-December 2011 and, consequently, for the calendar year 2011.” Company statement.
