Cathay Pacific: "Passenger numbers in June showed an increase compared to the same month last year, though load factors in Economy Class fell due to the growth in capacity. Some routes – including Japan, Shanghai and the Middle East - continued to show weakness, though loads on key long-haul routes and within Southeast Asia remained high. Demand in our premium cabins continued to show growth over last year, helping to boost yield and revenue efficiency,” Cathay Pacific General Manager Revenue Management Tom Owen.
