Aer Lingus: “We expect that year-on-year revenue percentage growth in 4Q2011 will be broadly in line with that achieved during 3Q2011. However, Aer Lingus’ 4Q2011 operating result will be impacted by higher quarterly fuel and airport charges, which are expected to increase compared to 4Q2010. We therefore expect that the 4Q2011 operating loss will be higher than that reported for the same period in 2010.” Source: Company statement, 03-Nov-2011.
