How would one go about finding the flights that regularly had the lowest passenger load, particular international flights from the US?

It's tough, unless you have the airlines' internal intranet access to see load factor.

*flew to MCO with a bunch of DL FAs and they did wonders with that!*

Fly Brussels Airlines from IAD...The load factors are low, hense the recent cut in frequency during the winter months.

FLY



The opinions I post are of mine and mine alone, not of the airline I work for.

There's a 100% cut in frequency, aka suspension of service, between October and March. When the flight resumes, it will be re-timed to morning/afternoon.

Strange flight to be sure. I've taken it a few times, and I've experienced both extremes, load factor wise, from nearly empty to nearly full upfront.

If you travel on UA, you can look a particular flight status > seating chart each day and make your own notes based on a trend. Very time consuming and no guarantee anyway.

With all the down-gauging, mergers, etc, it will be very tough to find an empty Int'l flight.

I bet odd airlines like Arik Air, Kuwait Airways, Saudia or Uzbekistan Airways in low-season would be good contestants...

first off??
NO airline employee that values their job can divulge that information or even Tell you HOW to get it.
I recently had a call that I suspected Wasn't an airline employee or the FAA asking me about a flight they weren't ON
and Why it was delayed.
So some on A*Net actually do have some of our internal Numbers But if you can't Identify yourself??
You won't get Jack! And? we can trace your Number as well because it HAS to come up on my screen and be logged
before I answer it OR? I won't answer it and I don't Have to answer it.
The Only place you can call without Caller ID is reservations.
. you Can however get the information from the DOT. (Months after it's reported though)

That's pretty much what I am looking for. How do find that? It might be a helpful thing to have somewhere a thread or faq on where to find this information, as there seems to be several people who know how to get it. I was hoping someone might share their secrets on how to do that.

P.S. Is this really travel related? It is not related to a specific trip or trip information. I don't mean to throw back at you strfry, but no one is trying to steal your job or company secrets.
