Vueling Presents Big Loses

Sun Aug 05, 2007 5:38 pm

Vueling presented a 25,6 million loss and have announced they will re think their growth strategy, and delay the purchase of new aircraft. Is this the beginning of the end?  tombstone

Where's the link to that story? Drawing conclusions could be easier after reading a bit more.

Try any of yesterdays Spanish papers.

http://www.eleconomista.es/mercados-...los-decepcionantes-resultados.html

this link might work for you if not just put Vueling in google it was in all of yesterdays papers as IB presented a 75 M euros result for the first half of the year (last year same period they presented a 9M loss) so the results for IB are very good.

On the other hand, FR has increased their operations in Spain.
I have read somewhere in the forum that FR is going to start GRO-MAD -No official. There is nothing in the website.-
This could be a response for Spanish carriers linking Barcelona - Madrid as IB, JK, UX and VY.
Hard situation for VY.

Why would it be the end for VY? After all, if IB was able to turn losses into profit in just one year, why not VY can recover?

Because they are not doing things very well, their losses are growing, growth without profits means nothing, They should have come into profits this year at the latest and unless investors are willing to put more money I don't think they will last very long. This is a very complicated bussiness.

IB is not either.........don't get me wrong, I know IB plays in a diferent market, my point is that to make money you don't have to do things that well as IB case is proving.

I know, but still think VY has good chance to overcome current situation, might happen with diferent ownership

They should stop flying in competition to existing airlines on the same routes and rather serve new destinations with lesser competition.The passenger-numbers might be smaller ,but the yield would be better.

IB doesn't show a negative result since 1995. Last year it had a negative first quarter result (which is normal in IB due to the business cycle, which is weak in the 1Q each year), but then losses are covered in the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th quarter. In 2007, even the 1Q was positive.

Well, I wish sincerely that they can sort out these problems. They are a very effective and needed competitor to Iberia on the Spanish market. I've flown with them a couple of times and everything was OK

I must say I find that rather hard to believe. Other than that Ib is such a useless case, the competition might do them some good!
