Alaska's May disapointing

Photo Alaska 
Alaska Air Group Inc.  reported its May operational results on a consolidated basis earlier this week, for both its mainline operations and for its regional flying operated by subsidiary Horizon Air Industries Inc. and third-party regional carriers SkyWest Airlines and Peninsula Airlines, a subsidiary of Ravn Air.

As a whole, the group saw traffic increase only marginally by less than one percent while the load factor remained pretty stagnant at around 85%.
