So 61.4% LF on the branded ops. Obviously still in the red.

Now that they XJT must report its city-pair data to the DOT if someone is bored feel free to look up the info to see what markets might be working better then others both load and yield wise.

Utilization looks high though - higher than on their CO flying; depending on yields, the losses might not be as bad as the load factor would lead you to believe.

A 61% load factor is bad, no way around that. The looses are not staggering because they operate RJs, a load factor like that on bigger metal could be disastrous. Anybody here think its time for them to approach a major before its too late?????

I flew XJet once over the summer from TUS-SMF. The flight was great, audio and snack service, were a pleasant suprise. But wih only 2 flights a day in the TUS-SMF market, I continue with WN that has multi-options with one-stops and connections. Many of the TUS-SMF markets are one flight a day only and do not offer connecting service. While returing from SMF to TUS on the day after Thanksgiving I noticed that my flight to LAS was running late and that a connection to TUS would be almost impossible. A gate agent simply rebooked me on an alternative route. A running late or cancelled XJet flight would leave few options. To change loyalty from WN to XJet for my frequently flown on TUS-SMF trips does not make sense for me.

I'm sure they already have. Is it ever too late for them? Can't they just turn back to CO whichever RJ's they don't want to operate?

Edit: whichever of the 69 they retained, that is.

I think that was a one-time only option for them and they decided to keep the planes. I think they're stuck with them now. I'm with Juventus that it's time to approach a major. If they could fly their routes at the very least with a mileage partnership, it would make a big difference.

I suspect some of the poorer performers were the DL at risk flying (LAX-MFE) for example and I have noticed many of those flights are being pulled down.. It states where those figures are included in the branded flying..

I still like their plan , and I keep telling them to raise their fares (alot) and that they still wont lose much traffic, but they seem commited to the low fare approach where there really is no need to be THAT low in most of their nonstop markets!

My roommate recently flew them JAX-AUS and they had WN undercut in the market despite XE being n/s and WN being direct, one-stop. I'm pretty sure the rule of thumb is that most folks will pay more for a n/s. Either way, undercutting WN is not likely to be a profitable venture with an ERJ-145.

Oh no, lets hear all the doomsdayers!
Granted high LF's don't equal profit, but I would like to know what WN's LF was when they started up. A 61% LF is not that bad for being in operation for 8 months and in the month of November.

Considering they're already tied in with 2 majors (CO/DL) and at the time an LCC (F9) I would assume they have interline agreements and need be could interline you over on another airline. Sure it might include a few extra hours or an extra connection, but it gets you home. Good luck finding an interline on WN.

The main interline partner, if it became necessary to do so, is Delta.
