The Company's underlying operating loss during the period stood at GBP298 million, compared to GBP289 million in the comparable year-ago period. TUI managed to beat the Morgan Stanley's analyst expectations of a loss of GBP305 million for the period.

Last year the Easter holidays fell in March, helping the Company's performance in H1 FY 2013.
