Le Won s'est un peu cassé la figure, l'activité Cargo d'Asiana, membre de la Star Alliance, était peut-être trop importante par rapport à celle de pax.

Asiana Airlines suffered a KRW227.17 billion ($183.5 million) loss in 2008, reversed from a KRW106.26 billion profit the prior year as the value of the won collapsed against the dollar and the Korean economy faltered, and followed that with an even deeper first-quarter loss.
The 2008 loss occurred despite a 16.6% increase in revenue to KRW4.22 trillion. Expenses soared 26.3% to KRW3.7 trillion and Asiana's operating result swung to a KRW52.68 billion loss from a KRW171.61 billion profit in 2007.
In the 2009 first quarter, its fortunes soured further as it posted a KRW262.3 million loss, according to Seoul's JoongAng Daily.
The airline was KRW3.3 billion in the black in the first three months of 2008.
Operating loss was KRW120.1 billion compared to a KRW34.6 billion operating surplus the prior year on a 5% fall in sales to KRW922.9 billion.
Asiana said an 8.9% drop in the value of the won hurt demand and foreign exchange losses boosted operating expenses by 11% year-over-year, according to the paper.
The carrier concluded 1998 with 68 aircraft and intends to enter 2010 with 67: Five 737-400s, 11
A320-200s, 13 A321s, seven 767-300s, eight A330-300s, 10 777-200ERs, two 747 passenger aircraft and three Combis, one 767-300F and seven 747-400Fs.
