Qantas: “Group Domestic yields (comprising Qantas Domestic, QantasLink and Jetstar Domestic) were lower than the prior period due to increased capacity in the domestic market. In addition, both Qantas and Jetstar yields and loads in the prior period were favourably impacted by the grounding of Tiger Airways Australia. Qantas International experienced yield improvement as a result of exiting major loss making routes in 2H FY12, whilst high levels of international capacity growth in Jetstar contributed to yield decline for the month of July.” Source: Company statement, 04-Sep-2012.
