Compared to last October, year to date short-haul yields were down 1.4%, as the airline continued to lower fares which stimulated demand, and the respective long-haul yields were up by 10.9%. Removing the impact of foreign exchange, group-wide yields were up 7.4%,” Source: Air New Zealand, 25-Nov-2010.
