IATA announced that international passenger grew 8.3% and international freight traffic 3.6% in the first eight months
of the year. However, year-on-year comparisons for August showed slower growth than for the previous seven
months for international passenger and cargo traffic at 6.1% and 2.8% respectively. Load factors remained high for
August at 78.9% (0.6 percentage points higher than August 2004) with an eight-month average of 75.4%. Airlines are
struggling to deal with a ballooning fuel bill that is expected to reach US$97 billion—more than double the US$44
billion in 2003. Efficiency gains, high load factors and fuel surcharges are helping mitigate a portion of the impact of
the extraordinary price of fuel. "While many carriers have been more successful at imposing fuel surcharges, we may
be nearing the limit and seeing a trade-off with demand," said Giovanni Bisignani, IATA Director General and CEO.

Iberia released 3 year strategic plan which includes 230 measures to reduce cost and increase competitiveness.

Mesa Air Group reported its preliminary traffic figures, on-time performance and completion rate figures for

in 2005. Passenger enplanements increased 14.2% from 944,537 in September 2004 to 1,078,362 in September
2005.

Monarch announced traffic figures continued to grow in September 2005, with the airline carrying 101,454 more
passengers than in the same period last year. A total of 288,447 passengers flew in September 2005, compared with
186,993 in September 2004. The increase represents a 54% rise in traffic and an average load factor of 85% - 2.6%
up on 2004

Northwest Airlines announced a systemwide September load factor of 81.0 percent, 1.8 points above September
2004. Northwest flew 6.01 billion revenue passenger miles (RPMs) and 7.41 billion available seat miles (ASMs) in
September 2005, a traffic increase of 4.5 percent and a capacity increase of 2.1 percent versus September 2004.

Northwest Airlines is seeking $ 2.2b to $ 2.5b in profit improvement initiatives. NWA filed for Chapter 11 creditor
protection in September 2005.

South African Airways Chief Operating Officer, Mr Kyrl Acton, has decided to leave the Company to pursue other
commercial interests.

Southwest Airlines announced that the Company flew 4.7 billion revenue passenger miles (RPMs) in September
2005, an 18.9 percent increase from the 4.0 billion RPMs flown in September 2004. Available seat miles (ASMs)
increased 11.5 percent to 7.0 billion from the September 2004 level of 6.3 billion. The load factor for the month was
67.4 percent, compared to 63.2 percent for the same period last year.

TAM reported a tripling of quarterly profit thanks to a fleet expansion to accommodate rising passenger numbers.

reported net income for the six months ended June 30, 2005 of $2.5 million and had provided market guidance that it
