Aer Lingus: “While the trading environment remains challenging, early indications on Q2 revenues are positive. Short haul bookings for Q2 are broadly equivalent to prior year but are being achieved at higher yields. The Group’s long haul bookings are currently performing ahead of prior year both in terms of load factor and yields … we have limited visibility over the booking profile for H2 2010 and our key markets remain subdued,” Company statement.
