IATA: "Initial financial results for Q1 show solid performance by US airlines, helping the overall industry maintain operating results similar to those of a year ago. But performance is not positive across all regions. The small sample of 17 airlines indicates losses for European airlines, but to a lesser degree than in the year ago period, and significant decline from a year ago for Asia-Pacific airlines.” Source: Company statement, 07-May-2013.
