Unit costs ex fuel for the quarter actually dropped to $0.0752 from $0.0761 in the prior third quarter. This is a particularly good result given that our average stage length actually decreased about 5% in our fixed-fee business. Of course, we realize we must remain both a high-reliable airline and a unit cost-competitive airline in order to remain a preferred provider in this segment, and we do remain committed to both operational quality and cost leadership in this market.Excluding fuel, our fixed-fee service revenues were down about $21 million, or 8% ,on a 7% decrease in block hours, and that's the effect of a reduction of approximately 15 lines of 50-seat [lines] that have exited our fixed-fee business over the last year.
