NOTE: Legacy carriers include American Airlines, Continental Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, and US Airways. Low cost carriers include JetBlue Airways, Frontier Airlines, AirTran Airways, Spirit Airlines, and Southwest Airlines. Seat miles per gallon for the Airbus Industries A321 appear to be inflated due to suspected misreporting of data by Frontier in Q2 and Q4 of 2010. P5.2 data is used to for Q4 2010 fuel use data.
