AMR Corporation: “September's consolidated passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) increased an estimated 4.0 percent versus the same period last year, continuing the positive trend the airline has seen throughout this year. Absent the impact of operational challenges due to flight cancellations and delays during the second half of September, unit revenue improvement would have been approximately 0.4 points higher,” Source: Company statement, 08-Oct-2012.
