Thomas Cook: “Bookings [for winter 2010/11], up 7%, are broadly in line with an 8% planned capacity increase, with yields up 6% reflecting a shift in mix towards more intercontinental bookings. The business to date has benefited from lower hedged fuel prices versus the same period last year. Bookings [for summer 2011] are 8% ahead of prior year and ahead of capacity increases of 4%. Yields are up 1%, with continental yields down 1% and intercontinental yields up 4%,” Company statement. Source: Thomas Cook, 08-Feb-2011.
