Singapore Airlines: “PLF improved for all route regions, except South West Pacific and West Asia & Africa. South West Pacific and West Asia & Africa regions registered PLF declines as both regions continue to absorb the injection in capacity. 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-Nov-2013.
