Expedia: “Worldwide air revenue increased 15% for the fourth quarter, primarily due to a 9% increase in revenue per ticket and a 6% increase in air tickets sold. Revenue per ticket increased primarily as a result of an acceleration of merchant air revenue leading to a one-time increase in air revenue of approximately USD5 million,” Company statement.
