JetBlue: “JetBlue's preliminary passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) for the month of June was relatively flat year over year. June PRASM was negatively impacted by a one-time noncash adjustment related to the points expiration change in JetBlue's loyalty program, which lowered PRASM by approximately one percentage point.  This adjustment was not included in previous guidance.”  Source: Company statement, 11-Jul-2013.
