Re: TW 757s remaining in DL Fleet

I think Delta has a few ex-SQ 752s as well. N750AT comes to mind... and it was an ATA frame too. 11/1984 to Singapore, 12/1989 to American Trans Air, and then 9/1996 to Delta.

N751AT and N752AT as well, same story.

DFW Foreign Carrier Estimated February 2018 Loads

Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for February 2018. I'm beating a dead horse here with Interjet, but wow - just under 40% loads? This is their worst month ever.

Unclaimed Money at Airports, 2012-17

I've added up the total of unclaimed money left at airports in the U.S. from FY 2012 - FY 2017. All figures provided by TSA's annual reports to Congress. As the years go on some airports drop off the list as they end up reporting to a larger nearby hub airport than on their own. https://bit.ly/2GfBt...

Re: DFW Foreign Carrier Estimated January 2018 Loads

Very cramped indeed. I've been doing these for a while and have always estimated 355 seats on the return, after several folks shared nearly 130 seats were blocked on the DFW-SYD run. Certainly this doesn't appear to be the case. I understand the blockage may vary based on time of year, winds, etc......

Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for January 2018. Most carriers in the 80s, which isn't bad for the dead of winter. Interjet has fallen to half-filled planes again.

QF is just posturing. If the A380 and/or DFW were not useful or making money to their network as a whole, the flight would have already been cut or cutback after all these years.

Let's see if EK can start filling the 773 first on a constant basis after EY leaves before we look for A380. Although I will say that with 100+ A380s ,they have to go somewhere... so who knows.
