Wolfe Research weighs in on Spirit Airlines Incorporated (NYSE: SAVE ) after the airline posted revenue per available seat mile growth of -6.8% to edge past the consensus estimate of analysts.

“RASM came in at the high end of the initial range (-6.8% y/y compared to range of -6.5% to -7.5% y/y), even with management’s assertion that completion factor drove a 50p RASM headwind,” observes analyst Hunter Keay.

Keay calls the report good news and reminds that Spirit’s operational performance now ranks among the best in the industry.
