Thanks to a strengthening economy and the continuing efforts of airlines to adapt to a volatile environment, the increase in costs did not stand in the way of profitability this quarter... Nonetheless, with costs likely to continue rising in this period of economic uncertainty, financial discipline remains paramount.” Source: ATA Chief Economist John Heimlich...
