IATA: “It is far too early to call this a recovery. The worst may be over in terms of the fall in demand, but yields continue to be a disaster and costs are rising. The airline industry remains firmly in the red with a fragile business environment,” Giovanni Bisignani, Director General and CEO. Source: IATA, 29-Oct-2009.
