Kingfisher: “Yield improvements witnessed in last two quarters of FY10 are expected to continue given the narrowing of the demand supply gap.  The Industry expects domestic yields to improve by 5-7% in 2010-11 and as high as 10% in Q3 of said year…Kingfisher has budgeted for a profitable year ahead ; primarily driven by growth in premium traffic, ATV and significant reduction in costs. International operations are fast moving towards stabilization,” Company statement. Source: Kingfisher, 28-May-2010.
