Spirit Airlines sees Q4 total revenue per ASM down 7%-8% Hurricane Sandy reduced fourth quarter revenue by approximately $25M and reduced total RASM year-over-year by approximately 6.5 percentage points. The revenue impact from Hurricane Sandy was less than previously estimated primarily due to a stronger-than-anticipated recovery in demand for the month of December. The company's fourth quarter 2012 cost per available seat mile, excluding special items and unrealized mark-to-market hedge gains, is estimated to be between 10c-10.05c. Spirit estimates its CASM ex-fuel for the quarter was between 5.9c-5.95c.
Spirit Airlines requests withdrawal of registration statement The company said its filing that it is requesting withdrawal of the registration statement because of a filing error relating to coding. Specifically, the registration statement was incorrectly coded and filed as an S-3, whereas the company intended the registration statement to be filed with the commission with the code S-3ASR. The company subsequently plans to promptly file a substantively identical registration statement under the appropriate code.
