Qantas: “For the financial year to date, Qantas Group yields were lower than the prior corresponding period, reflecting challenging market conditions on domestic and international routes. Total Domestic (comprising Qantas Domestic, QantasLink and Jetstar Domestic) yields were lower as a result of continued market capacity growth and weak demand. Qantas International yields were lower than the prior corresponding period due to high levels of competitor capacity growth, and an increase in Qantas’ available capacity to Asia,” Source: Company statement, 29-Nov-2013.
