IATA: "Q1 2013 financial results indicate solid performance at the operating level, compared to a year ago. The sample of 56 airlines shows that although net profits were down on last year, operating profits have improved. Often Q1 shows a loss as it is the low season, but so far there are operating profits of USD0.5 billion. All regions except Latin American were up at the EBIT level compared to the year ago period. Net losses for North American and European airlines include the impacts of restructuring costs – in the US major carriers are reporting net profit improvements excluding reorganization items."
