ANA still making large profits then!

"A sharp rally in the yen is threatening profits at major Japanese firms...."

A sharp rally in the yen is threatening profits at major Japanese firms as it makes them less competitive overseas and shrinks the value of repatriated profits.

Good catch, JeffLee. A sharp rally in the yen is exactly what an airline, for whom internationally-priced fuel is a major expense, should be wanting to see, because it reduces their costs tremendously.

But we should no longer be surprised to see sentences like this one, copy-pasted with tiny variations, inserted into article after article by what I imagine are Abe/Kuroda/LDP content censors. I can't think of any other excuse for such shoddy journalism.

If the Yen has increased in value it might be a good time to buy some new aircraft.
