Hawaiian Airlines: “The decline in revenue guidance is primarily the result of competitive pricing on a number of specific routes that have seen high rates of industry capacity growth; the improved unit cost guidance is attributable to revenue-driven expense savings, decreased load factors, and lower than expected maintenance expense,” Source: Company statement, 09-Oct-2012.
