Qantas profit plunges downward but stays in black

first_imgQantas said it remained cautious today after reporting a $58 million profit after tax in the first financial half of the year, a fraction of the $210 million achieved a year earlier and has opted not to pay out a dividend this year.This result comes after sales dropped 14% down to $6.9 billion for the July to December period.Speaking to reporters this morning, Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce said the carrier’s performance was good given the state of the economy.He said domestic leisure demand remained strong but admitted that the global downturn significantly affected international premium traffic.“While international yields are improving, they are expected to continue to lag behind the recovery of the domestic market in the short to medium term” Joyce attributed the slower recovery in the international market to a lagging U.S. and U.K. market and increased competition on the Pacific route from V Australia and Delta, which have hiked capacity up by 30 percent.The carrier’s profits continued to be boosted by its low cost subsidiary Jetstar and its Frequent Flyer loyalty program which formed an alliance with Woolworths Group last year.Qantas said it would not pay a dividend due to the unprecedented and challenging operating environment.Aircraft to cut down on premium seating Qantas also announced it would invest $400 million to upgrade seats and in-flight entertainment on 9 Boeing 747-400 aircraft and reconfigure its A380 fleet.The Boeing aircraft will feature the carrier’s fully flat Skybed sleeper seats and state-of-the-art on-demand Panasonic inflight entertainment in all classes. They will also be stripped of all first class cabins and replaced by business seats.Joyce said the reconfiguration would see Qantas’s A380s pare down on first and business class seating and provide more premium economy and economy seats to meet slower demand.However, he stressed that the decrease in first class seats did not mean Qantas was pulling back from its premium business.Rather it was to align the A380 offering with forecast demand which is expected to be down by 40 percent, Joyce told reporters.Upgrades and reconfigurations to the aircraft will start from the end of 2011, with completion scheduled in 2013.
