The airline said that weak international travel numbers caused what it estimates to be between a -1% to 1% change in passenger revenue per available seat mile (PRASM) during the month. The US Airways parent company also said that its regional affiliates flew 16.16 billion miles, a 0.5% dip from the same period last year.
Despite a 15% jump in Pacific traffic, the company reported a 3.1% decline in international traffic during the month.
Separately the company, along with other stocks in the sector, are being hurt today by fluctuating oil prices that have rebounded slightly from the multi-year lows that were reached yesterday. Delta Airlines (DAL) and Southwest Airlines (LUV) are down 3.1% and 3.7% today, respectively.
