United Continental Holdings: “United and Continental's Aug-2011 combined consolidated and mainline passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) each increased an estimated 10.5 to 11.5% compared to the pro forma results from Aug-2010. Hurricane Irene impacted United and Continental's operations in August, reducing the company's revenue results by approximately USD40 million in the month and reducing consolidated capacity. As a result, consolidated PRASM year-over-year growth improved by approximately one percentage point, which is included in the above estimate,” Source: Company statement, 08-Sep-2011.
