Cautious Kitty

EVA Air says it holds a cautious outlook on air freight growth despite a predicted electronics boost.
The carrier, known for its Hello Kitty cartoon character branding, posted nearly US$ 100m cargo sales last May.
EVA president Chang Kuo-wei says: “The cargo business will be a little down.
“The airline’s cargo business may see some upside in the second half of the year, driven by the launch of new electronics products.”
Regional analysts expect the debut of Apple Inc’s iPhone 5 and the possible iPad Mini, may drive cargo demand. 
The Taiwanese firm posted NT$2.92 billion (US$97.78m) in cargo sales in May, down 12.84 per cent from a year ago.
EVA’s Airbus 330-200s, the Hello Kitty Speed Puff Jet, flies between Taipei and Tokyo.
