Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for April 2018. Nothing too out of the ordinary here or anything unexpected. First month without Etihad service.
Indeed as mentioned above, EI has been mentioned for ages... but with AA going to 4x daily from late October in addition to the BA 1x daily to LHR, I wonder if there is still enough market left for another flight to the "neighborhood." I will believe EI when we see an official announcement...Jump to post
Sure. Well thank you for sharing your thoughts. I agree on 5x being a lot in the winter, I think even in past summers 4x has been the most. I'd hate to see BA go (its an old BCAL route) and also find it hard to kind of believe overall, but with the JV anything is possible.Jump to post
After reading further, I think what will happen is simply one more DFW-LHR frequency on AA and the BA flight will remain as well. So as qcpilotxf mentioned, 5x daily, with 4 on AA and 1 on BA.
I know when I had a DFW-LHR flight in December, I didn't have to think twice on booking BA over AA.
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for March 2018. This marked the final month of Etihad's tenure at DFW, and they ended in good shape at nearly 82% overall.
4O once again brings up the rear.
Years ago a LH A346 to IAH diverted to DFW due to wx in Houston. It parked at the gate and when it came time to push back, it was discovered there was no tow bar for a 346 at LH or any carrier. They had to drive one up from IAH... told to me by the old LH station manager! After that, a tow bar was a...Jump to post

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. Everyone else doing as would be expected in the middle of winter... Etihad, which just abandoned DFW ser...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
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......Jump to post
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.
Hope you enjoy!
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.Jump to post

I'd love to know how much freight is going out on the ME3 flights to/from DFW.Jump to post
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.Jump to post
Seems to me that using U.S. bankruptcy laws to dump billions in pension obligations, contracts that are no longer favored etc is a form of subsidy. Perhaps not directly given by govt but certainly allowed by it via the laws of the U.S. So I always chuckle when I hear our carriers moaning about ME3 s...Jump to post
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for December 2017. Excellent month across the board for everyone, some very impressive numbers for the beginning of the slow winter season. Qatar went back from the Airbus A350 to their Boeing 777-300s – 358 seats vs. 283. Etihad, d...Jump to post
Maybe they should ask Interjet how good the support is in regards to parts etc...Jump to post
ere are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for November 2017. Much like October I have Qatar marked separately as I was under the distinct impression they were blocking seats on their Airbus A350s that were used in October/November. The rates are calculated with the full 283-...Jump to post
I think QR is better positioned than EK here just due to the one world connection. I'm certainly interested to see how the BA/LH sides do once the Icelanders come in May. But those numbers are six months away!Jump to post
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for October 2017. My apologies for the delay, DFW Airport had some type of issue with their software and it took longer than usual for the report to arrive. Looks like that's fixed and I have November and December numbers now to wor...Jump to post

One might wonder why doesn't LH upgauge their metal to a, let's say, A340-600 or 747-400 since loads are so good They did at one time use an A340-600 on the route. When did this occur? Been a DFW local for a while, but never heard of this. LH has never put an A346 on DFW-FRA. Now the A346 that went...Jump to post
QF numbers are again strong. I remember a comment by QF's Alan Joyce recently where he said that the cost of 2x789s was cheaper on a per trip basis than an A380. This makes me think that perhaps QF will go double daily 789s' in the future as opposed to using the A380. Daily 789 ex SYD 4pw 789 ex ME...Jump to post
QR and EK numbers are quite honestly brutal...And yet EY is the one pulling out of DFW, despite having LF's that are 25 percent higher...truly mind boggling. It does seem odd, but we don't know the yields after all, or what, if any, cargo is being shipped. Is the LH flight a 333 all year? Also with...Jump to post
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for September 2017. Interjet struggles mightily again, barely filling half their available seats for the second month in a row. This month we estimate Interjet at a 49.47% overall load factor, while in August they were at 54.18%. I’...Jump to post
List of how many guns have been found this year by TSA at every airport:
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for August 2017. Interjet stands out again for struggling, barely filling half their available seats. The DFW route clearly calls for the smaller Sukhoi SSJ-100 rather than the 150 seat Airbus A320... perhaps there is not enough fra...Jump to post
Another new carrier at DFW. Nice to see them diversifying their airlines. Serious question. What are the chances airlines such as Virgin Atlantic and Norwegian ever set up shop at DFW? I asked that earlier in the thread... I am doubtful on Virgin Atlantic, but I think its only a matter of when rath...Jump to post
Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for July 2017. Decent loads cross the board for nearly everyone, although that is not a surprise in the middle of the summer. Now for Etihad, I am not including them this month as I cannot ascertain their seat counts. The EY Source ...Jump to post
Just curious, how did it come to pass that Day 1 is a Monday rather than Sunday in airline schedules? I understand there are a few cultures where Friday/Saturday or what not are the weekends, just curious how Monday is Day 1 and not Sunday?
