Malaysia Airlines: “The outlook for the third quarter 2009 is expected to remain soft. While there are some signs of improving economic climate, the airline industry is still faced with weak demand and downward pressure on yields. The operating environment remains volatile with the H1N1 "pandemic" impacting travellers' confidence,” Company statement. Source: Malaysia Airlines, 06-Aug-2009.
