 Metro flew 30.8 million revenue passenger miles during the month, up 1.2 percent from 30.4 million a year ago. A revenue passenger mile is the equivalent of flying one paying passenger one mile. The company flew 45.5 million available seat miles in March 1992, down 8.6 percent from 49.8 million in March 1991. Load factor, or percentage of seats filled with paying passengers, increased by 6.6 points to 67.7 percent from 61.1 percent a year ago. The company carried 131,911 passengers in March 1992 compared to 128,797 passengers in March 1991, an increase of 2.4 percent.
 In its D/FW operations for the three months ended March 31, 1992, Metro flew 85.2 million revenue passenger miles, up 0.5 percent from 84.8 million a year ago. Available seat miles decreased 8 percent to 132.1 million from 143.6 million. Load factor increased 5.5 points to 64.5 percent from 59 percent for the same period a year earlier.

 The company's total traffic for the three months ended March 31, 1992, declined from year-earlier levels due to the disposals of the company's former operations in Atlanta, the Northeast and the Caribbean prior to March 1991.
 Metro Airlines is a regional airline which operates as American Eagle, serving 25 cities from its Dallas/Fort Worth hub.
