Air France-KLM: “Unit revenue per available seat kilometre (RASK) excluding currency increased markedly compared to the level of May 2009, with strong momentum both in economy class and in premium class. For long-haul, the increase was particularly noticeable in the Asia and Americas networks. For medium-haul, the Paris-Europe routes benefited especially from the launch of the new 'Premium Eco' product aimed at business travelers, which has been well received by customers,” Company statement.
