Aer Lingus Group: "Bookings for second half of 2013, at 30 June 2013, were ahead of prior year; however warm weather has negatively impacted bookings in July. We maintain our guidance that 2013 operating profit, before net exceptional items, will be broadly in line with 2012." Source: Company statement, 31-Jul-2013.
