British Airways:While some economic experts are flagging the risk of a 'double dip' recession, the steady recovery continues and, on that basis, we continue to target to break-even at a profit before tax level for the full year as we move forward on our strategic objectives and continue to build on our excellent customer service,” Company statement.

British Airways:The trends in our passenger and cargo traffic continue to be positive with yields up and costs down. Together this led to a reduced operating loss for the period though pre-tax losses increased as a result of additional finance costs and the impact of non-cash foreign exchange movements,” Willie Walsh, CEO.
