CX's April Results

Thu May 23, 2002 8:52 am

I'm totally shocked that Singapore_air has not posted CX's latest figures which were released last wek. I guess you guys have really scared him.  Big grin

Here's the link if you are interested in finding out how CX performed in April.

I don't understand how you can compare April 2001 and April 2002. Some very major things have happened in these 12 months and there is no way you can have better figures this year.

Cathay are always telling staff that things are down, but they are looking at before and after the 9/11 thing. This is one of the reasons the staff are angry at Cathay.

Dynkrisolo, thanks for the info.

hehe Dynkrisolo. Funny how certain people behave when it's someone else posting the same thing more or less.

True, some things have happenned between April 2001 and April 2002, most notably 11 September 2001. However there is way you can have better figures this year.

I know one airline who increased capacity, increased revenue passenger kilometres, increased yield and increased load factor at the same time. So clearly, it is possible.

Hello Singapore_Air,

There is a big difference in the way you do things to the way he did it. He does not post again and again how bad other airlines are doing while not posting bad news about your No 1 carrier.

As for your last sentence, if you think SQ have improved over last year then your even more simple then I thought. It's all in how you show your results and SQ being SQ would have to show they are doing well.

Hello HKGSpotter1,

It is the same way except he does not go into as much detail. I'm surprised. If you don't like the news posted on your favourite airlines' website then I suggest you contact them and tell the to refrain from posting such things.

As for your last two sentences, I would like to tell you that Singapore Airlines releases it's results to the stock exchange and any erroneous data found planeted intentionally would mean a severe fine on Singapore Airlines and not just financially. Singapore Airlines is a respected airline among analysts and from what they say, there is nothing to doubt the results that Singapore Airlines are not factually correct.

I have asked Hkgspotter1 a few times to behave more maturely. Just to be fair, Singapore_air please don't incite unnecessary quarrels between you and Hkgspotter1. It will make this forum less disruptive. Both of you are valuable participants in your own way. So, don't diminish your contribution by engaging in some hostile exchanges. I think many people would agree with me. Thanks!

Well, compared to other airlines, like British Airways, CX and SQ are doing pretty well in earnings. At least, they will make a profit even though the profit is smaller than last year.

Dynkrisolo,

I agree with you, now will he stop posting non stop negative reports on other carriers, and every little positive SQ news item he can find ?

I read in an article on SCMP.com online (South China Morning Post) that Cathay argues it is not fair to compare their half-year profit with Singapore Airlines' because it is off by three months each way. (CX's in December 2001, SQ's in March 2002).

B-HXB: Every airline has its own set of circumstances, so you can always find some reasons why it's not an apple to apple comparison. OTOH, I feel whoever agrued for Cathay in the SCMP article didn't present a very strong argument. Only 2 1/2 months of post-9/11 data were included in CX's December results. For SQ, 5 1/2 months of post-9/11 data were inluded in SQ's March results. AFAIK, yields at both SQ and CX are still below pre-9/11 level. So, the argument presented in the SCMP article would actually favor CX not SQ. Anyway, enough of this SQ vs. CX stuff. Both airlines are doing better than most of the airlines around the world.

Hkgspotter1: Lighten up. Lately, he has been posting news mostly as-is without any of his personal comments. It's not his fault that there aren't many good news from other ailrines to report. I think sometimes you read too much into his postings and made assumption of what his intent was. Just ignore his postings, if necessary. Just a suggestion.

I can't add, can I? I mean 3-1/2 months for CX, and 6-1/2 months for SQ.
