SAO PAULO, Aug 2 (Reuters) - Brazilian airline Gol Linhas Aereas Inteligentes SA on Thursday reported a second-quarter net loss of 1.326 billion reais ($354 billion), much deeper than analysts expected, and following a net loss of 478 million reais a year earlier.
The results missed the average estimate in a Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S poll of five analysts, who gave their forecasts in U.S. dollars, for a net loss of $125 million.
Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) rose 47.3 percent from a year earlier to 208 million reais. Four analysts surveyed had forecast EBITDA of $67 million, on average.
