US Airways: "Our December 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 decreased approximately one percent on a year-over-year basis. As we close calendar year 2009, we are pleased our revenue performance continued to show improvement with positive trends in both booked yields and corporate revenue,” Scott Kirby, President.
