JAL may post smaller-than-expected full year loss; may borrow less for turnaround

Japan Airlines Bankruptcy Administrator, Akitoshi Nakamura, stated the carrier may post a smaller than expected full-year operating loss, that could help the carrier reduce the amount it needs to borrow for its turnaround plans (Bloomberg, 02-Mar-2010).

The carrier, last month, received JPY600 billion (USD6.8 billion) in state-backed loans to help cover its restructuring costs.
