JAL Group: “The outlook for fiscal year 2012 is uncertain due to the prevailing economic situation faced by the company, such as concerns of a downward swing in the global economy due to the European financial crisis and rising fuel prices caused by geopolitical risks in the Middle East. The operating environment is also entering a new phase with the launch of JAL’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner and the entry of Low Cost Carriers (LCC) into the Japanese market.” Source: Company statement, 14-May-2012.
