I calculated some load factors for some carriers at PDX to see how they were doing. I however did not do ones that had many different types of aircraft coming in as they could have changed. Here is my list:

MX 83%
B6 94%
F9 90% (Based on one daily flight being an A318)
WN 79% (Based on all flights being 137 seats)
AA 94% (AA.com says MD-80's have 131 seats)
HA 90%
LH 93% (Based on the A343 having no FC leaving 266 seats)

It looks like the carriers are doing very well as long as the fares are good. Please feel free to correct me if my calculations seem to be off.

Using Port of Portland data, I presume? I know they publish a read-only Excel worksheet each month showing cargo and pax movements.

I'd be curious to see how NW is doing on their PDX-NRT route.

That seems really high for B6! I didnt think the route had such a high LF.

Yes, I use the PDF and then pull the available numbers from the airlines website based upon what aircraft they use and how many times. I then make sure that the total number of flights I come up with matches to the one that is on the Port of Portland's site.

Unless the numbers from PDX are wrong or B6 used a larger aircraft(only if they chartered one, unlikely), this would be there load factor. They have had pretty high load factors since they started here in May of 2005 so this seems a little bit above their average for PDX but still within the range of possibilities especially considering it was summer.

Here is the PDF from the Port of Portland:
