Across all business segments they beat. I can hardly wait for the street;s reaction to the conference call. What is really good to see that management fixed their issues from last year and has not only displayed fixed but has virtually smoked the numbers again. Hinton and his team deserve a couple f atta boys. I beat on them pretty hard when they timed out but they have improved the model while applying long term fixes and they are providing strong revenue growth and profits. Backlog keeps growing so more to come and keep on coming.
The net passenger revenue miles were up 1 % . So PRASM is still down and will be for sometime. While that is not good passenger revenue is up. Freight was down as an over all view of the economy in general. Fuel cost was the big driver and will be for the next 6 months.
this is a high school paper trading club (AEA ) . The argument is short term trades vs. trend following. The trend followers have been killing it.They compute taxes on all trades along with commissions. Interesting . My daughter is in the same class with two of the pimple growers from AEA. Nice kids but not really learning too much. Yet.
