El Al: "Revenues for the quarter totaled 9.4 million compared to 7.5 million in the equivalent quarter last year, a drop of about 28%. The drop in revenues derives mainly from the reduction in the average income per passenger/kilometer, due to the reduced fuel surcharge, resulting from the drop in the price of aviation fuel," Company statement.
