Seasonality The company’s operations are somewhat favorably affected by pleasure travel on its pro-rate routes, historically contributing to increased travel in the summer months, and are unfavorably affected by decreased business travel during the months from November through January and by inclement weather, which could result in cancelled flights, principally during the winter months. Additionally, a major portion of the company’s fixed-fee arrangements is based on completing flights. The company generally experiences a significantly higher number of weather cancellations during the winter months, which negatively impacts its revenue during such months.
