Cathay Pacific: “Demand is at present expected to remain strong in 2011, but this expectation could be undermined if the current (or any higher) level of oil prices were to reduce global economic activity. Capacity will increase with the introduction of new destinations and increased frequencies. If our expectation as to demand is met, revenues will increase in line with capacity,” Christopher Pratt, Chairman. Source: Cathay Pacific, 09-Mar-2011.
