United Continental: “UAL's September 2013 consolidated passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) is estimated to be approximately flat compared to Sep-2012. The Company recorded an adjustment in September related to yields on certain interline tickets from prior periods, which reduced year-over-year consolidated PRASM by more than 1 percentage point in the month of September. Also in September, additional competitive capacity in China resulted in lower Pacific yields,” Source: Company statement, 07-Oct-2013.
