British Airways: “Underlying market conditions are as we outlined in the Interim Management Statement and investor presentation of July 30, 2010. For the summer, overall volumes are likely to be slightly lower than the peak levels seen last year with a lower proportion of transfer traffic and strong yield performance in both premium and non-premium. In the winter, yield growth is likely to slow due to capacity increases and the stronger base,” Company statement. Source: British Airways, 04-Aug-2010.
