Singapore Airlines: “Load factors were lower across all regions except for East Asia and the Americas. South West Pacific route region registered the highest PLF decline, as capacity expansion outpaced the growth in passenger carriage. The operating environment remains challenging. Efforts to stimulate demand to boost loads are expected to place continued downward pressure on yields.” Source: Company statement, 15-Jul-2013.
