Delta: “Consolidated passenger unit revenue (PRASM) for the month of October increased 2.0% year over year, driven by strong trans-Atlantic performance and business demand in Delta's Atlanta and New York hubs. The year over year change in unit revenues was affected by $25 million of revenue loss from the government shutdown, Superstorm Sandy's impact in the prior year, and yen devaluation. Each of these factors pressured unit revenue by approximately one percentage point apiece,” Source: Company statement, 05-Nov-2013.
