MIDEAST STOCKS - Factors to watch - Mar 26
DUBAI, March 26 Here are some factors that may affect Middle East stock markets on Sunday. Reuters has not verified the press reports and does not vouch for their accuracy.
March 4 Southwest Airlines Co said it expects a key revenue measure to rise in the low-single-digit percentage range for both the month of February and the first quarter.
Chief Financial Officer Tammy Romo gave the forecast at a JPMorgan aviation conference that was carried on the Internet. Despite concerns that the effects of automatic U.S. spending, cuts known as sequestration, would hurt demand, Romo said March bookings look "solid" for Southwest.
Meanwhile, Delta Air Lines Inc said in a statement on Monday that its unit revenue, which is also known as passenger revenue per available seat mile, rose 5 percent for the month of February, aided by business revenue gains, fuller planes and better performance on European routes.
March 25 Uber Technologies Inc suspended its pilot program for driverless cars on Saturday after a vehicle equipped with the nascent technology crashed on an Arizona roadway, the ride-hailing company and local police said.
