PAL Holdings: “The decrease [in revenues] was brought about mainly to the drop in passenger revenues offset in part by other income earned during the period. The decline in passenger revenues by 23% was primarily brought about by lower net yield per Revenue Passenger Kilometer (RPK) and the continued decline in passenger demand from international operations affected PAL’s revenue generation,” Company statement.
