US Airways: "Our August consolidated (mainline and Express) passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) increased approximately one percent versus the same period last year. These results reflect difficult year-over-year comparisons resulting from the temporary expiration in August 2011 of certain Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) ticket taxes on domestic and international air travel.” Source: Company statement, 05-Sep-2012.
