    The No. 1 U.S. airline said it now expects TRASM to increase about 3.5-5.5 percent in the quarter, compared with its earlier forecast of a rise of 3-5 percent.

    The company also said it now expects pre-tax margin, excluding certain items, to be between 12-14 percent for the quarter, up from its prior guidance of 11-13 percent.
