Malaysia Airlines: “The operating environment for airlines in general remains challenging for the fourth quarter of 2011. Not only is jet fuel price staying high, the worsening economic situation in Europe is being translated into weak forward booking profiles for our long-haul routes. Notwithstanding management’s efforts to mitigate the adverse situation, we expect the fourth quarter operational results to be weaker than the current quarter.” Company statement.
