Southwest Airlines reported improved demand and load factor in May - according to a regulatory filing.
The airline mentioned, in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing, that its operating revenue for April declined 90% to 95% and load factor was about 8% due to the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on air travel.
However, the company said it experienced "modest improvement" in passenger demand, bookings and trip cancellations in May, leading to net positive bookings through May 18.
Southwest expects May operating revenue to fall 85% to 90% and estimates load factor to be 25% to 30%, compared with previous outlook for a 90%-to-95% decline in operating revenue and load factor of 5% to 10%.
Southwest continues to expect its average daily core cash spending to be in the range of $30 million to $35 million in the second quarter of 2020. For June, it projects its daily cash burn rate to be “in the low-$20 million range.”
