Singapore Airlines: “PLF improved for all regions except South West Pacific where growth in demand lagged the increase in capacity. The Americas region led the growth as demand was boosted by promotional activities. Passenger yields are likely to continue to come under pressure as a result of the challenging operating environment and promotional activities.” Source: Company statement, 17-Dec-2012.
