This is having a negative effect on yields, at the same time as the Australian dollar has lost 30% of its value over the past half year and some of the country’s airlines have been hurt by losses on fuel hedging contracts.</P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt">The list of cutbacks has been growing in recent weeks, with Virgin Blue and smaller SkyAirWorld announcing capacity and job cuts, regional carrier MacAir going into receivership, Qantas slashing capacity growth plans and Skywest recording losses and a drop in passenger numbers.<BR></P> <P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0cm 0cm 0pt"> <TABLE style="WIDTH: 445px" cellSpacing
