Hawaiian Holdings, Inc.’s HA second-quarter 2020 loss (excluding $1.48 from non-recurring items) of $3.81 per share was wider than the Zacks Consensus Estimate of a loss of $3.72. Moreover, quarterly revenues of $60 million declined 91.6% year over year and missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $61 million.

Thanks to COVID-19 pandemic induced massive drop in travel demand, passenger revenues (contributing 49.6% of the top line) declined 95.4% year over year. Airline traffic, measured in revenue passenger miles, fell 97.9% year over year to 95.1 million in the quarter under review. Capacity (measured in available seat miles) contracted 92.1% to 409.5 million. Load factor (percentage of seats filled by passengers) deteriorated 6390 basis points to 23.2% in the reported quarter as capacity contraction outweighed traffic plunge.

Operating revenue per available seat mile (RASM: a key measure of unit revenues) in the quarter rose 6.1% year over year. Average fuel cost per gallon (economic) dropped 41.1% to $1.26 in the second quarter, while non-fuel unit costs rose more than 100%.
