Air Canada loss widens on weak Canadian dollar, rough winter
May 15 (Reuters) - Air Canada reported a bigger first-quarter loss, mainly due to foreign exchange losses of $161 million and harsh winter weather.
Canada's largest carrier said its net loss widened to C$341 million ($312.7 million), or C$1.20 per share, in the quarter ended March 31, from C$260 million, or 95 Canadian cents per share, a year earlier.
The Montreal-based company's operating revenue rose 3.8 percent to C$3.07 billion.
