Shares of Alaska Air Group Inc. (NYSE: ALK) were up over 1% on Tuesday. The stock has gained 23% year-to-date. The company is scheduled to report its earnings results for the second quarter of 2023 on Tuesday, July 25, before market open. Here’s a look at what to expect from the earnings report:


Alaska expects its total revenue for the second quarter of 2023 to be up 2.5-5.5% from the same period last year.

Points to note

Alaska can be expected to benefit from strong demand for travel.
