As we wind down the busy summer travel period, I would like to thank our 32,000 team members for doing an outstanding job of taking care of our customers. Despite challenging weather conditions and high load factors, our team delivered phenomenal operating results throughout the summer and we look forward to continuing that trend into the fall.”
