Air France-KLM: “September was impacted by air traffic control strikes. Nevertheless, both the passenger and cargo operations maintained the trend observed since the beginning of the financial year, with a rise in load factors, especially in cargo, and a marked improvement in unit revenues. Unit revenue per available seat kilometer (RASK) excluding currency was up strongly year-on-year, both in economy and premium classes,” Source: Company statement, 07-Oct-2010.
