Air France-KLM: ”Unit revenue per available seat kilometre (RASK) was up, but was not sufficient to offset the increase in the fuel bill. Unit revenue per available tonne kilometre ex-currency (RATK) was down relative to Feb-2011 on the back of the decline in volumes, but unit revenue per revenue tonkilometre held up well,” Source: Company statement, 07-Mar-2012.
