Allegiant: “Our strong results are principally due to a 13.3% increase in scheduled service passenger RASM (PRASM) and an 11.4% increase in total scheduled service RASM (TRASM) compared with 1st quarter 2010.  We believe our unit revenue gains are due to a stronger demand environment, changes in our pricing strategy and tactics, and our aggressive management of capacity in our network. During the quarter, our scheduled service ASM growth was only 2.7%, our slowest pace of year over year growth since the 3 rd and 4th quarters of 2008,” Maurice Gallagher, Chairman and CEO.
