Cathay Pacific: "February saw strong leisure demand on many regional routes due to return traffic over the Chinese New Year holiday period. Premium traffic volumes and yield also held up well throughout the month. When the January and February results are combined to remove Chinese New Year distortions, business was in line with expectations. However, there are economy class demand and yield challenges ahead across parts of our network as we continue to grow capacity, particularly on long-haul services,” Tom Owen, Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management.
