United Airlines: "For January 2010, consolidated passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) is estimated to have increased 9.5% to 11.5% year over year. Consolidated PRASM is estimated to have increased 2.0% to 4.0% for January 2010 compared to January 2008. Given the significant volatility in the revenue environment in 2009, management believes investors will find the year-over-two-year comparison to be useful," Company statement.
