Qantas: “For the financial year to date (September 2012), total Domestic (comprising Qantas Domestic, QantasLink and Jetstar Domestic) yields and loads were lower than the prior comparable period largely due to increased capacity in the domestic market. Qantas International yields were higher than the prior comparable period as a result of exiting major loss making routes in 2H FY12.” Source: Company statement, 31-Oct-2012.
