Airline SAS, which is partly owned by the Swedish state, has reported major losses, far higher than expected.

In the first quarter of 2012 SAS made a loss of over US$ 167 million. SAS has lost money in nine out of the last ten years, and has received support money from its Swedish, Danish and Norwegian state owners, in order to stay in business.

The company's CEO, Rickard Gustafson, writes in the quarterly report that his company is struggling due to "an uncertain economic situation, high fuel prices, and tough competition."

The company does not expect to turn a profit in the rest of 2012, but expects better times in 2013.
