GOL: "The period’s results, despite falling short of what planned at the beginning of the year, indicate the beginning of a gradual and steady recovery in operating margins. In 4Q2011, GOL expects to consolidate all the initiatives it has implemented during the year, the results of which will become fully apparent in 2012. So far, the Company has recognised overall gains of at least BRL500 million. In 2012, GOL announced its conservative approach towards adding fleet and capacity, projecting an ASK increase of no more than 4% in domestic supply,” Constantino de Oliveira Jr, founder and CEO.
