Delta Air Lines: “Delta's solid revenue improvement continued with consolidated passenger unit revenue (PRASM) increasing 4.0 percent year over year for the month of August. The PRASM improvement was driven by a stable demand environment, corporate traffic momentum and revenue resulting from customer-facing product investments. Absent the 2011 FAA excise tax suspension, August 2012 unit revenue improvement would be approximately 1.5 points higher." Source: Company statement, 05-Sep-2012.
