AMR Corp: “The company's revenue performance was driven by year-over-year yield improvement and a higher consolidated load factor of 84.5% – a record for any quarter as well. Domestic unit revenue improved 8.6 percent in the second quarter versus the same period last year and, for the second consecutive quarter, the company experienced unit revenue increases across all five of its hubs. These results were supported by strong corporate revenue growth. International unit revenue increased 9.0% in the second quarter, driven by increased load factors across all entities, and strong yield performance. Premium cabin demand improved significantly in both the Atlantic and Pacific entities.” Source: Company statement, 18-Jul-2012.
