Delta: "Consolidated passenger unit revenue (PRASM) for the month of August increased 4.0 percent year over year, with strong performance in domestic, trans-Atlantic and Latin markets. The Pacific entity continues to be pressured from yen devaluation which accounted for 1.5 points of negative system impact for the month." Source: Company statement, 04-Sep-2013.
