A few on here rooting for XNA
say XNA-HNL. probably have to wait behind LIT-XNA to start first, however. On the new A380 fleet.


Just go big. HNL-XNA for each of their first routes.

Well, these are just my hopes, I don't really have an idea what they will add.

RDU-RSW, CLT-DEN, LAX-SEA, and CVG-MCO may be farther out possibilities. BZN, JAC, and RAP would be nice DEN feeders, but are probably too small and/or seasonal for WN.

*IND-BNA was previously stated one of the top three requested destinations from WN's BNA passengers.



Just to challenge you.. why would WN fly to BZN and not BIL? BIL is the larger city (largest in MT) and has more business ties, but BZN has more tourism, MSU and the tech scene.


I actually don't know, I just assumed it was a larger market. At first glance it does seem to be, but is probably mostly seasonal and inbound. Its probably analogous to EYW for WN.
What about JAC, UA is at $500+ fares for the short DEN-JAC flight in the Spring/Summer, F9 serves it, but at a more reasonable price I bet ther's enough demand for WN to consider it. Neither airport might fit in their strategy though.

I am going to ask you to clean this up a bit by asking this question. We know they aren't adding all those suggestions in the next update, so let's say WN can only add 5 new routes this update. What 5 do you think they would be? Not routes they might add a year or 3 from now. Top 5 most likely routes you think they would add in the update next week.


5 routes I could see being announced in the next update are MDW-RIC, CVG-TPA, HOU-SMF, LAX-SEA, and OAK-PHL.

WN used to serve PHL nonstop from OAK 9 years ago, but WN dropped PHL-OAK nonstop service during the economic downturn. WN could bring back OAK-PHL nonstop service in order to better compete against AS SFO-PHL nonstop service.

Other possible adds out of the San Francisco Bay Area on WN include OAK-BOS, OAK-FLL, OAK-RDU, OAK-IAD, SJC-RDU, and SJC-IAD.

If Southwest announces CVG-TPA nonstop service next week, WN could possibly start CVG-TPA nonstop service earlier than August 7th since the demand for additional CVG-TPA nonstop service is really there with DL only doing 1 daily nonstop between CVG and TPA, with F9 doing CVG-TPA on a less-than-daily basis in Summer 2018, and with demand exceeding the number of seats available on the DL CVG-TPA nonstops.

With Southwest, there are so many routes you would love to see. I wish Southwest was #1 in Spokane, Washington. They draw a lot of passengers from nearby Pasco / Tri - Cities area.
Why endure the nightmare and congestion of LAX when BUR, LGB, ONT & SNA is so much easier to fly in and out of.

Southwest did drop GEG-SEA, GEG-PDX, and GEG-SLC nonstop service several years ago, but Southwest did add nonstop service to MDW (seasonal), DEN, PHX, SMF and SAN (seasonal) out of GEG. WN will also be starting GEG-SJC nonstop service on April 8th.

Southwest will probably never serve SEA nonstop again from GEG since AS still has nonstop service to SEA from GEG, since DL now has a hub at SEA, and since DL now has nonstop service to SEA from GEG.

Southwest could possibly bring back GEG-PDX nonstop service if there is enough O&D demand for GEG-PDX nonstop service on WN since there is no US3 hub at PDX, since PDX is a larger WN station than SEA is, and since AS is currently the only airline to serve PDX nonstop from GEG. However, Southwest is unlikely to bring back GEG-PDX nonstop service since there is probably not enough O&D demand for Southwest to bring back GEG-PDX nonstop service and since all of the destinations that WN currently serves nonstop from GEG also already have nonstop service out of PDX on WN.

Read up thread for why I say that. If you STILL don't agree then if for no other reason than it's too much airplane...too many seats. Southwest comes into an airport and usually connects it to 2 to 4 other cities on the southeast map with flights a few times a day.

Say on the conservative side they started serving XNA with 5 or 6 flights a day somewhere...that's 1000 new seats on 737s that are seats dumped into the XNA market, a market with a total of ZERO Mainline flights ANYWHERE on US3 aircraft, that oh by the way only have half the capacity into XNA of any aircraft WN would use. If there was more demand the US3 would fly bigger planes or greater frequency.

WN is NOT HAPPENING in XNA. everyone who wants to fly Southwest will keep driving.


Your hate warms my heart in the chilly winter.

Recent economic outlooks states that Northwest Arkansas needs 90,000 residential units in the next 3 to 5 years. At just two people per unit, that puts the population around 750K. The jobs being created are engineers, doctors, ect. To continue to ignore one of the fastest growing and top performing economic regions in the country under the assumption that they continue to drive two hrs to Tulsa is financial malfeasance. This argument in less than a decade, will be like you saying folks in Tulsa should drive to OKC for all WN flights.

WN should stick XNA in between two major markets that need more frequencies or fill the excess capacity
needed to keep the frequencies for no plane change stops that they have done for years and grow from there. But, yeah, as long as XNA is one of the top 10 most expensive airports in the country, folks will drive elsewhere. Just offering dozens of connecting markets for sub $400 fares would do wonders at XNA. If XNA is right and there is at least a 20% bleed to other airports due to high fares and there was 700,000 enplanements in 2017, that's 140,000 enplanements to possibly be had just in 2018 and it's growing every day.

Read up thread. too much new capacity if WN started flying 737s multiple times a day to a place that has no big 3 mainline service ANYWHERE.

There are a few smaller markets in Texas served by WN that do not have any mainline flights on any of the US3, including AMA, MAF, CRP, and HRL. However, DL does not serve AMA, MAF, and CRP, and DL also only has seasonal nonstop service to its MSP hub from HRL.

In addition, BHM and LIT do not have any mainline service on AA or UA, and DL only has mainline service to its main ATL hub from BHM and LIT.

WN does serve SDF, but AA only operates mainline service to its main DFW hub from SDF and DL only operates mainline service to its main ATL hub from SDF. UA has no mainline service out of SDF.

WN does serve MHT and ROC, but the majority of the service out of MHT and ROC on AA, DL, and UA is on regional jets.

WN might be willing to serve markets that have limited mainline service on the US3 if there is enough demand for at least 8 daily departures on 737-700 or larger aircraft on WN. There is more than enough demand to support WN service to SDF and MHT, despite limited mainline service out of these WN stations on the US3. There is also more than enough demand for WN service out of LIT during the summer travel season, despite limited DL service out of LIT.

Since we're asking for wishlists or predictions, I'd love to see WN add either PIT-OAK to compete with UA's PIT-SFO service or PIT-SAN to add another non-stop market that has been overlooked by the existing carriers at PIT. I doubt it will happen this time around, but I'm hoping that will happen someday soon.

XNA on WN is kind of a running joke on this thread. Only a couple of posters who appear to be regional fanboys on here have convinced themselves it's possible. I have stated a bunch of business reasons why it will never happen. There may be some low cost carrier like Frontier someday at XNA, but WN will never be there.

Will WN ever add service to MYR? AA, DL, UA, G4, and NK all already serve MYR, and in addition, F9 and SY have already announced plans to serve MYR.

Destinations that WN could possibly serve nonstop from MYR if it adds service to MYR include ALB, ATL, AUS, BWI, MDW, DAL, HOU, MCI, MKE, BNA, and STL.

'Never' is a bit of a strong word. I completely agree with you in the next 3 years. WN has more important things on their mind. But much can change in 5, 10, or even 20 years down the road that might make a different business case. Would you have believed it if someone told you 20 years ago that AUS would have 747 service to LHR on BA this summer? I certainly would not have believed that.

Southwest operates out of Wichita is about a 2.5 to 3 hour drive from KC and about the same to OKC. XNA is a longer drive than that . . . perhaps close to 4 hours to KCI depending on the time of day. The drive from NWA to Tulsa is about the same from as KC to Wichita. I could see an XNA/LAS flight working and perhaps a XNA/MCO. Granted that's only two city pairs but I don't think SWA servicing XNA is that big of a leap. Add in that the population growth in NWA is off the charts and it's probably a matter of when not if.


Would love them do that. Those are both AAY routes though, giving them a run for their money.

False, we have a daily (sometimes 2x daily in some seasons) DL mainline from ATL. No matter what always one daily mainline flight is available.

There is an article titled "Southwest Airlines CEO sees growth for carrier in Las Vegas" that was published on the Las Vegas Review Journal's website yesterday, and that article can be found at https://www.reviewjournal.com/business/southwest-airlines-ceo-sees-growth-for-carrier-in-las-vegas/.

I agree that WN has opportunities to further expand domestically at LAS. WN did previously serve LAS nonstop from ALB, JAX, MHT, ORF, and PVD, and WN could bring back nonstop service to these 5 destinations from LAS. Additionally, WN could also add nonstop service to LAS from CVG, MEM, and RIC, and WN could also extend LAS-MSP nonstop service to year-round.

"Never" is not too strong of a word for me. If the shoe fits....

I take issue with your comparison.
So, the fact that Austin now has international flight to LHR and this surprises you somehow from where they were 20 years ago means XNA will get Southwest?

These two aren't even REMOTELY connected business situations. Ridiculous. The geography of where it's located in between other bigger cities isn't changing "in 20 years." There's a solid reason XNA won't work and WN has no need to fly there, and can still capture passengers. It's been discussed but fanboys won't accept it. It's like the 2 guys on the thread here insisting the US3 airlines will still order A380s "in a couple of years". :banghead:

My bad. This little airport with mostly Monday-Friday service for Walmart business has exactly ONE mainline flight and SOMETIMES TWO in certain seasons. It is certainly ready to fill the added 750-1000 seats PER DAY on new Southwest flights into XNA International. :rotfl:

Would love to see WN grow some more in LAS. Seems like it has been years since they have been active. LAS and PHX have been put on the back burner in favor of DEN. LAS can probably sustain service to 99% of the WN cities.

IN a Wall Street journal article posted yesterday on the American monopoly at CLT, a WN financial exec was quoted in saying that WN has plans to expand in Charlotte. I would assume this would be in concurrency with the opening of the new concourse, which they will move o and receive an additional gate.
What might they be looking at? Additional flights to BWI/HOU/DAL/MDW? Or new service out west to Denver/Las Vegas? I’m not sure they’d try Florida again given how fast they pulled out of it once AirTran transferred their routes to/fro Charlotte. The only way I could see that is if they did it to FLL to connect to Latin America.
Thoughts?

But much can change in 5, 10, or even 20 years down the road that might make a different business case. Would you have believed it if someone told you 20 years ago that AUS would have 747 service to LHR on BA this summer? I certainly would not have believed that.



"Never" is not too strong of a word for me. If the shoe fits....

I take issue with your comparison.
So, the fact that Austin now has international flight to LHR and this surprises you somehow from where they were 20 years ago means XNA will get Southwest?

These two aren't even REMOTELY connected business situations. Ridiculous. The geography of where it's located in between other bigger cities isn't changing "in 20 years." There's a solid reason XNA won't work and WN has no need to fly there, and can still capture passengers. It's been discussed but fanboys won't accept it. It's like the 2 guys on the thread here insisting the US3 airlines will still order A380s "in a couple of years". :banghead:

Read up thread for why I say that. If you STILL don't agree then if for no other reason than it's too much airplane...too many seats. Southwest comes into an airport and usually connects it to 2 to 4 other cities on the southeast map with flights a few times a day.

Say on the conservative side they started serving XNA with 5 or 6 flights a day somewhere...that's 1000 new seats on 737s that are seats dumped into the XNA market, a market with a total of ZERO Mainline flights ANYWHERE on US3 aircraft, that oh by the way only have half the capacity into XNA of any aircraft WN would use. If there was more demand the US3 would fly bigger planes or greater frequency.

WN is NOT HAPPENING in XNA. everyone who wants to fly Southwest will keep driving.


False, we have a daily (sometimes 2x daily in some seasons) DL mainline from ATL. No matter what always one daily mainline flight is available.


My bad. This little airport with mostly Monday-Friday service for Walmart business has exactly ONE mainline flight and SOMETIMES TWO in certain seasons. It is certainly ready to fill the added 750-1000 seats PER DAY on new Southwest flights into XNA International. :rotfl:

Ridiculous? You're kidding me, right? What I find ridiculous is how easily the point I'm trying to make went sailing over your head. First of all, I agree with you that XNA will not be seeing WN service in the near future if ever at all. I have never been there and don't know much about the market other than what I've read on here. It is a unique airport due to the presence of Walmart. That is the extent of what I know. What I find interesting is the language that you use like you have a crystal ball and can see the entire existence of WN. The statement about AUS simply means that markets can change dramatically in a relatively short time. I do not think that XNA is equivalent to AUS and that because AUS has service on BA means that XNA will get WN. I just would have never predicted the growth of AUS. I'm sure some people did. Anyway, if that doesn't make some sense we will have to agree to disagree!

IN a Wall Street journal article posted yesterday on the American monopoly at CLT, a WN financial exec was quoted in saying that WN has plans to expand in Charlotte. I would assume this would be in concurrency with the opening of the new concourse, which they will move o and receive an additional gate.
What might they be looking at? Additional flights to BWI/HOU/DAL/MDW? Or new service out west to Denver/Las Vegas? I’m not sure they’d try Florida again given how fast they pulled out of it once AirTran transferred their routes to/fro Charlotte. The only way I could see that is if they did it to FLL to connect to Latin America.
Thoughts?


I agree that WN could possibly add nonstop service from CLT to DEN and LAS. I also agree that the possibility of WN adding a 3rd MDW-CLT nonstop is there (at least during the summer travel season) since most of the other markets that are as big as CLT have at least 3 daily nonstops to MDW on WN.

WN could possibly add CLT-PHX nonstop service since PHX is one of the top destinations from CLT, since WN has nonstop service from PHX to destinations that AA does not serve nonstop from PHX, and since there are frequent flyers in Greater Phoenix who prefer to fly on WN over AA.

WN could also add CLT-STL nonstop service since WN has over 50% market share in the STL market, since there are many frequent flyers in the St. Louis area who prefer to fly on WN over other airlines, and since STL used to have nonstop service to CLT on both TW and US prior to the AA-TW and AA-US mergers.

WN has stated that it wants to further expand its international operations, and I agree that WN could add CLT-FLL nonstop service in order to connect passengers to Caribbean destinations from CLT.

He was too wrapped up in himself.

I agree that WNs move to higher capacity planes hurt the prospects of new service in smaller markets. I would love to see a Boeing /Embraer marriage lead to the introduction of the E2's into a fleet like WN's to address this lower capacity void they have created for themselves.

With the battle going on at Love over 2 gates, I wonder if WN ever entertains the notion of flying out of McKinney. They could shift a lot of intra Texas flying there opening up slots for more markets outside of Texas and better timed connections at Love.

They have all had mainline service in the past for decades though in addition to WN.

XNA will likely see WN and more mainline flights at some point in the future if it keeps growing.

One interesting thing about XNA is it is probably the smallest market to have nonstop service to both NYC and LAX.

Not until 2024. Until then the current Love field agreement says that WN has to give up a Love Field gate when it starts using a gate at a different metroplex airport. I personally hope that in 2024 WN starts flights out of both Meacham (Alliance?), and McKinney. That'd sure shake up the local politicians - and maybe exert enough pressure to up the number of gates at Love Field, too.

I have just argued that you over come capacity issue by stopping one of the lower yielding flights between two major cities, say Dallas and St. Louis or Denver and Nashville for example, to fill up the empties with XNA traffic each way. Combine two smaller markets for a Sat MCO run like mco/xna/ict/xna/mco.

The 5-party agreement can be amended if Southwest Airlines, the City of Dallas, the City of Fort Worth, the DFW International Airport Board, and American Airlines all agree to the proposed changes in writing.

While Southwest already does serve the entire DFW Metroplex (including both Dallas and Fort Worth) through DAL, Downtown Fort Worth is 37 miles away from DAL and it can be hard to get all the way to DAL from Downtown Fort Worth in rush-hour traffic. I do agree that the lack of WN service to an airport closer to Downtown Fort Worth is one of the few remaining holes in the WN network, and I do agree that WN could start service out of either FTW or AFW.

While AFW is further from Downtown Fort Worth than FTW is, AFW is still closer to Downtown Fort Worth than DFW and DAL are. AFW is also closer to Denton than DFW, DAL, and FTW all are. There is also more room to build a passenger terminal at AFW than there is at FTW, and the runways are also longer at AFW than at FTW.

I also agree that WN could also start service out of TKI, even though portions of Collin County (including the southwest corner of Plano and the northernmost portion of Far North Dallas) are closer to DAL than to TKI. There is also still plenty of room at TKI to build a passenger terminal, and there are some business travelers who might be willing to fly out of TKI if TKI is opened up to commercial service.

Some of the big differences between WN and the US3 include the following:
  • There are currently 17 WN destinations in the contiguous U.S. without nonstop service from DAL that have nonstop service from DFW on AA, from ATL on DL, and from ORD on UA, including CVG, CLE, DSM, RSW, GRR, GSP, BDL, SDF, MKE, MSP, EWR, ORF, RIC, TUS, IAD, PBI, and ICT
  • There are 101 destinations in the U.S. that AA serves nonstop from DFW, DL serves nonstop from ATL, and UA serves nonstop from ORD, whereas WN only has daily nonstop service to 50 destinations from DAL and 62 destinations from MDW
  • Of the 101 destinations in the U.S. that have nonstop service from ATL on DL, DFW on AA, and ORD on UA, WN does not serve ANC, AVL, ASE, BZN, CID, CHA, COS, CAE, DAY, EGE, EVV, FAR, XNA, FWA, GSO, HDN, HNL, IAH, HSV, JAN, JAC, TYS, LEX, MSN, MIA, MSO, MOB, MLI, MTJ, MYR, PSP, PIA, RAP, SAV, FSD, SBN, SGF, TVC, and ILM
  • WN's MDW, BWI, LAS, and DEN focus cities are all bigger than its DAL home base, whereas DFW is the largest AA hub, ATL is the largest DL hub, and ORD is the largest UA hub
  • AA's DFW, CLT, ORD, PHL, MIA, and PHX hubs, DL's ATL, DTW, MSP, and LGA hubs, UA's ORD, IAH, EWR, DEN, and SFO hubs, and AS's SEA hub are all larger than WN's MDW focus city
  • AA, DL, and UA serve international destinations in Canada, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia, whereas WN only serves the US along with some international destinations in Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean
  • AA, DL, and UA all have codeshare agreements with foreign airlines, and all 3 of these airlines codeshare with airlines that serve Asia, Europe, Africa, Oceania, and Latin America
  • WN does not charge for the 1st and 2nd checked bags, whereas AA, DL, and UA all usually charge for checked bags in economy class
  • WN does not charge change fees that AA, DL, and UA do charge on nonrefundable fare tickets (even though WN will charge for difference in fare)
  • WN does not have assigned seating, whereas AA, DL, and UA all have assigned seating
  • AA, DL, and UA all offer first class service on all of their mainline flights and on most of their regional flights, whereas WN does not offer first class service on any of its flights
  • AA, DL, and UA offer basic economy fares that do not allow changes to be made to the itinerary, whereas WN does not offer basic economy fares

You must remember that while all the big three hubs are bigger, volume wise, than WN's MDW focus city, the big three rely a lot on regional jets with 50-75 seats which allows them more frequency. WN is all mainline with the smallest plane having a capacity of 143 passengers.

Re: Southwest Airlines Network Thread 2018

Today is a day I look forward to -- the peak spring break Saturday -- when the Southwest network takes a pretty extreme bend to Florida and the southwest.

Nonstops for Saturday 3/24 to Florida, Arizona and Vegas

63 Chicago Midway
39 Baltimore
29 Milwaukee
29 St Louis
26 Indianapolis
24 Columbus
22 Kansas City
20 Buffalo
16 Pittsburgh
12 Providence
11 Hartford
11 Minneapolis
11 Philadelphia

On days like this demand seems nearly bottomless. Of the 29 flights to Florida/PHX/LASS 20 were completely sold out . Doing test bookings (for example finding that flight n will sell two seats but if you ask for three it says sold out) it appears there were approximate 25 seats avabile for purchase today across those 29 flights. On top of those 29 FL/PHX/LAS flight nearaly everything else out of Milwaukee was full or nearly so. Easter is early this year and spring break is very compact.

Not sure if other stations were as full but it wouldn't be too surprsing. Days like this there isn't much room for error and for the most part it has been good flying except for poor Indianapolis which got dumped with about 10 inches of snow and has seen 7 of 26 flights axed. Probably a lot of people stuck when they most want to get to warm weather.

I usually look at this spreak break Saturday peak from the northern side but it would be interesting to see what the bulge looks like for Southwest on the southern end.

Here are the full year load factors for WNs cities and routes (outbound loads from each city to destinations under bold heading for origin city). The number next to the bold heading is an RPM/ASM load factor for the city overall.
These are full year 2017 numbers, so some routes show may no longer exist. I filtered out routes with less than five departures performed in 2017, but some of these numbers, particularly the outliers, could be diversion flights picked up in the data. Take it with a grain of salt, but enjoy. Florida, DEN, and SJU to the load factor lists but its interesting to see WN's performance in LGA, its probably improved mostly because the really bad ((IND for example) routes were trimmed during the year, bringing up the overall average. I have no idea how CRP is holding on, but CVG didn't appear to do that well either in its first six months. They did enter with quite a bit of capacity though (to CVG) but it must be improving given the addition of DEN and PHX.

As a FF out of BUR, I notice their loads are generally lower. Does this mean they're struggling there, or is it likely a higher yielding market? (Hollywood, etc.)

55% LF on PDX-SFO ... ouch. Must be taking a bath on that but dragging down UA and AS while they're at it.

Flew a 800 back from MCO to MEM last Tues nite. It only had 90 people on it. I told the flight attendant that this was a big plane for MCO/MEM, she replied that it'll be full when it leaves MEM in the morning. Think it was going to BWI. So, there's things like positioning larger aircraft for morning runs that one must take onto account on load factors.

A few on here rooting for XNA
say XNA-HNL. probably have to wait behind LIT-XNA to start first, however. On the new A380 fleet.


Just go big. HNL-XNA for each of their first routes.

Only if it continues on to the Marshall Islands. NWA has the largest dispora of Marshallese in the lower 48, second only to Hawaii overall.

So, once weekly, seasonal?

These are full year 2017 numbers, so some routes show may no longer exist. I filtered out routes with less than five departures performed in 2017, but some of these numbers, particularly the outliers, could be diversion flights picked up in the data. Take it with a grain of salt, but enjoy. Florida, DEN, and SJU to the load factor lists but its interesting to see WN's performance in LGA, its probably improved mostly because the really bad ((IND for example) routes were trimmed during the year, bringing up the overall average. I have no idea how CRP is holding on, but CVG didn't appear to do that well either in its first six months. They did enter with quite a bit of capacity though (to CVG) but it must be improving given the addition of DEN and PHX.

MCO 87.1%
DAY 91.9%

DAY 67.6%
MCO 80.0%


It appears that there might be enough demand for WN to add at least seasonal nonstop service to MCO from CVG with AirTran no longer around and WN no longer at DAY. Demand for flights to MCO from CVG has also increased since 2016. There are also markets close to the size of CVG or smaller than CVG that already have nonstop service to MCO on WN and that have more O&D demand to MCO than CVG does, including AUS, BUF, CLE, CMH, BDL, IND, MCI, MKE, BNA, STL, PIT, and RDU (many of which also already have nonstop service to MCO on F9 and SFB on G4). WN might be able to do well on CVG-MCO nonstop service since WN might be able to stimulate additional demand for flights to MCO from CVG if it adds CVG-MCO nonstop service. WN can also get more Dayton-area travelers to fly out of CVG instead of CMH if it adds CVG-MCO nonstop service.

And yet WN won't give us full-time MCO service...just the sporadic once-a-week crap...and NO THEME PLANE! :evil: :mad: :evil:

Sum -

Great data you supplied, thanks. Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see any international markets reported - was that intentional?

Another example is a late evening PVD BWI which misses most connections and is too late departing for the business traveler. Perhaps it is valuable for freight and mail or too many RONs at PVD, but it is very light on pax and no doubt puts a little chip in the LFs. Moving the early DCA to 9AM and losing all the gov't day travel also contributes. A little here, a little there......

A 175 seater on MCO/MEM on a Tues night is a bit much so the Morning routing must be a money maker. I certainly enjoyed the space. We flew down on a Sat 10 days prior on a 700 and it was a sardine can and 100% full and had prices of well over 200 bucks for months on end.

Sorry, should have referenced, some excel manipulation of the USDOT T100 data from https://www.transtats.bts.gov/Tables.asp?DB_ID=110&DB_Name=Air%20Carrier%20Statistics%20%28Form%2041%20Traffic%29-%20%20U.S.%20Carriers&DB_Short_Name=Air%20Carriers#

The full year 2017 is only available for the domestic dataset, so thats all I was able to show.

The usual caveats on the meaning of load factor and it not necessarily correlating directly with profitability apply to analysis of these numbers (a full flight doesn't gurantee profitability...for example)
