AirFrance-KLM: “The number of passengers stood at 5.87 million, up 2.6%. The slight rise in unit revenue per available seat kilometer (RASK) ex-currency was insufficient to offset the rise in the fuel bill, while volatility of the activity remains high. Despite the reduction in full freighter capacity of 6.9%, the load factor fell 4.3 points to 68.2%. Unit revenue per available tonne kilometre (RATK) ex-currency declined relative to November 2010.” Source: Company statement, 07-Dec-2011.
