ANA expected to report first half loss

All Nippon Airways (ANA) is reportedly expected to report an operating loss of approximately JPY25 billion (USD276 million) for the six months ended 31-Sep-2009, reversing a profit of JPY49.8 billion (USD549 million) in the previous corresponding period, due to weak demand (Nikkei Business Daily, 28-Oct-2009). It would be ANA’s first operating loss for the first half of a financial year since the carrier commenced publishing interim group earnings in 2000.
