    Number changes for Q1

    A lot of numbers changed.

    Fuel was higher by a nickel than Q1 estimates ... must be a greater lag in realizing the cheaper fuel prices, or other additional fuel costs not taken into account by the daily NY fuel quotes. However, Q2-Q4 fuel guidance dropped lower than January guidance ... by a good amount.

    PRASM was flat, but ASM's for Q1 were higher than January guidance ... essentially giving a higher revenue than the reported 1%+ for Q1.

    A much larger increase for Q1 in cargo and other revenues than January Q1 guidance $420 million instead of $390 million.

    CASM ex-fuel for Q1 was lowered vs. January guidance.

    We'll have to see how long the soft spot with in close bookings last. What was sequester a 2% drop in the "growth" of government spending? We saw where the breakout to new highs for the industry looked like. It'll be interesting where the expected correction takes us.
