Group market trends, RASK and yield development
During July 2011, currency adjusted RASK was unchanged versus previous year and yield was down 1.8%, both slightly below guidance. For August 2011, (change vs last year) currency adjusted RASK and yield are expected to be broadly in line with or slightly better than July.
The market growth continues to be good, but, remains unpredictable due to added capacity in certain markets, risk in the global economy and risk of continued high jet fuel prices.
