US Airways: "Our November consolidated (mainline and Express) passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) decreased approximately two percent versus the same period last year while total revenue per available seat mile was flat on a year-over-year basis. The revenue environment continues to show core sequential improvement with strength in close-in bookings. Additionally, both booked yields and corporate revenue are now up on a year-over-year basis," Scott Kirby, US Airways President. Source: Company statement, 03-Dec-2009.
