Revenues in the quarter were $1,623 million, below consensus estimate of $2,331 million. However, the figure is higher than the year-ago quarter’s $26 million. Passenger ticket and onboard and other revenues were $873 million and $750 million, respectively.
The company reiterated its expectations of a net loss for the second quarter and the full year of 2022. However, it projects a positive profit in the third quarter of fiscal 2022.
