Singapore Airlines: “Load factors softened across all regions. Europe and South West Pacific registered the highest declines as the growth in passenger carriage was outstripped by the increase in capacity. The operating environment remains challenging. Yields are expected to remain under pressure as efforts are made to boost loads in the current operating environment.” Source: Company statement, 17-Jun-2013.
