(3) Reason for Revision

    While concerns remain about a downward swing in overseas economies
    due to the government bond crisis in Europe, and while the flooding
    in Thailand and other events have had an impact, operating revenues
    have come in at close to previously planned levels, boosted in part
    by the introduction of the Boeing 787 aircraft and the success of
    measures to stimulate demand on the sales and marketing side. The
    forecast for revenue has thus been left unchanged from the
    previously announced forecast.
    In operating expenditures, meanwhile, approximately 30.0 billion
    yen in mergency cost improvement measures for the full fiscal year
    are being implemented as planned in response to the sudden drop in
    demand caused by the earthquake. In addition, progress has been
    made in reducing expenses, as a portion of the cost restructuring
    that was due to take place beginning in the next fiscal year was
    moved up. As a result, both operating income and recurring profit
    are expected to increase by approximately 20.0 billion yen.
    Net income is expected to remain unchanged from the previous
    forecast, at 20.0 billion yen, due to a partial write-off of
    deferred tax assets etc., following the official announcement of
    the Act Related to a Reduction in Corporate Tax Rates.
    Note that these forecasts assume a US dollar/yen exchange rate of 80
    yen, a market price for Dubai Crude Oil, a key benchmark for
    aviation fuel prices, of USD 105/barrel, and a price for Singapore
    jet kerosene of USD 125/barrel.

2.  Write-off of Deferred Tax Assets
    As a result of the December 2, 2011 official announcement of the Act
    Related to a Reduction in Corporate Tax Rates, the Company writes
    off a portion of its deferred tax assets, with 10.0 billion yen for
    the full fiscal year on a consolidated basis (8.0 billion yenon a
    non-consolidated basis) to be booked as an adjustment for corporate
    taxes, etc.

Note: This forecast of business performance has been prepared based on
      all information available at the time of publication.Final
      performance may differ from forecast figures due to a variety of
      factors going forward.
