JAL Group: "Consolidated operating revenues for the full year are expected to increase by 14.0 billion yen from the previously announced forecast, due to a revision of market preconditions, and strong demand on Southeast Asia routes, etc. Consolidated operating expenses for the full year are expected to decline by 1.0 billion yen from the previously announced forecast due to falling fuel prices and continuous cost reduction initiatives in the second half of the fiscal year, though foreign currency rates may push costs upward. Consolidated operating income for the full year reflecting the above factors is expected to increase by 15.0 billion yen from the previous forecast." Source: Company statement, 31-Oct-2013.
