Singapore Airlines: “Systemwide PLF improved on the back of strong summer travel demand, especially on long haul sectors for Americas and Europe route regions. PLF for the East Asia route region declined as growth in demand was outpaced by the increase in capacity. Passenger yields are likely to continue to come under pressure as a result of promotional activities,” Source: Company statement, 15-Oct-2012.
