Delta: “Consolidated passenger unit revenue (PRASM) for the month of April decreased 2% year over year due to demand softness in the domestic entity and the 1-2 point negative impact in the Pacific from the yen devaluation.  This result is in line with previous guidance; Delta still expects a modest year over year improvement in May and June unit revenues.” Source: Company statement, 02-May-2013.
