Qantas: “We are also keeping a close watch on oil and fuel prices. While well below the record levels seen in 2008, they remain volatile and are trending upwards. For 2010, the Qantas Group has hedged 80% of fuel costs at a worst case price of USD89 per barrel,” Alan Joyce, CEO. Source: Qantas, 19-Aug-2009.
Qantas: “There are signs of an improvement in passenger volumes. In addition, yields have stabilised at the levels experienced in the second half of the 2009 financial year. High levels of volatility in the economic outlook, industry capacity, passenger demand, fuel prices and exchange rates continue. Given the high level of uncertainty it is not possible to provide any profit guidance,” Company statement. Source: Qantas, 19-Aug-2009.
