Passenger Yield

Measure of average fare paid per mile, per passenger, calculated by dividing passenger revenue by revenue passenger miles. Typically the measure is presented in cents per mile and is useful measure in assessing changes in fares over time. Yield is not useful for comparisons across markets and/or airlines, as it varies dramatically by stage length and does not incorporate load factor (unlike PRASM).
