JAL Group: “The outlook for consolidated results for the full year of fiscal 2011 has been revised from the previous forecast which was announced on 08-Nov-2011 along with the financial results for the first half of fiscal year 2011. Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011 has increased from the original projection in part due to the high yen rate, which encouraged international leisure travel from Japan, as well as from stable corporate travel demand, while domestically, reservations for special occasions were made convenient to help improve earnings,” Company statement.
