Singapore Airlines: “Load factors improved across most regions on the back of strong summer demand and earlier Lebaran holiday travel. PLF for East Asia and South West Pacific route regions declined as growth in demand was outstripped by the increases in capacity. Promotional activities are expected to continue to place downward pressure on passenger yields.” Source: Company statement, 17-Sep-2012.
