Anyone have and load factor info for MX's new BWI-MEX service? I've been too busy to wander over to internationals lately to try to gauge it for myself, but haven't heard too much of it since service began.
United 717 heavy, you're facing the wrong way. Any chance you can powerback to get off of my deice pad?

Can't comment on the load factors, but I think that BWI is throwing MX some advertising money, as I have been seeing daily ads in the Washington Post and the Baltimore Sun. I think that BWI is still stung from losing Aer Lingus.

Best of luck to MX at BWI. The fact that Aer Lingus has been in and out of BWI twice in the past six or seven years suggests to me that the route has potential. It just needs an a/c smaller than the A332, especially in the winter (I saw A333's several times at BWI during summers).
If EI orders the 787, something rumored here recently, BWI-DUB would probably be a permanently viable route. Canning the Shannon stopover--isn't that under discussion?--wouldn't hurt either.

Also in the Scheds and the inflight magazine "Vuelo".
Sorry for the delay guys, really busy these days, but here are the load factors:
Last weeks the average was 90%, january second was the lowest with 77 passengers (77% as the flight is operated with an A318), for tomorrow shows an average of 65%. That´s departing from BWI, from MEX it´s pretty similar.
Life is what happens when you have other plans.....

I think it is quite logical that load factor was in the 90's during the holidays because many people go back and forth to be with their families. 77 is not that bad considering that, according to MX, only 60 to 70 passengers are required to make a profit with the A318's. Is that the correct number Logan?
