Compared to last August, year-to-date short-haul yields were down 1.1%, as the airline continued to lower fares which stimulated demand, and the respective long-haul yields were up by 11.5%. Removing the impact of foreign exchange, group-wide yields were up 8.9%,” Source: Company statement, 21-Sep-2010.
