Re: Ryanair has best passenger load factor of 96%

true. But imagine you sell every single seat (100% LF) at USD 100. Your competitor sells 60% of theirs at USD 200. Who's ahead? For example, AA/BA may fly a 777 between JFK and LHR with terrible loads overall - but it is full up front. Makes the flight worth operating. High LF is a good thing, and ...

Re: Ryanair has best passenger load factor of 96%

Interesting argument about 85% being better than (say) 98%. I’m not sure, I get the importance of yield but fact is empty seats is money left on the table. (Fuel burn argument is spurious, if the added revenue doesn’t cover the fuel burn per seat you’re really in trouble.) I would think every penny...
