Howdy folks,

I just checked and the May numbers are in for DFW's international traffic.

http://www.dfwairport.com/stats/index.php

Looks like KL's numbers jumped quite a bit from the April startup month to May. If you go by the numbers below (pax enplaned) the KL flight already outperformed the BA flight in the month of May!

% Int'l Enpl NRSA Tot Enpl Depl
AC 1.6% 3,463 589 4,052 3,172
BA 2.3% 5,820 45 5,865 5,115
Taca 0.5% 1,269 39 1,308 1,214
KL 2.3% 6,252 110 6,369 4,930
KE 1.7% 4,293 40 4,333 3,879
LH 2.9% 7,453 198 7,651 6,442
MX 1.8% 4,562 0 4,562 4,375

The columns above equate to the % of international pax, pax enplaned, NRSA = ?, total pax enplaned, and pax deplaned.

I really don't know how to decipher what enplaned/deplaned really means in the grand scheme, but if you divide enplaned / # of days the flight runs per month you get a pretty good idea of how many average pax were on each flight.

KL's flight looks to have averaged over 200 pax during the month of May. I know this is high tourist season and we don't know premium cabin figures, but still this is good to see that the planes are going out relatively full. LH averaged 240 pax/flight (down about 6-7% compared to last year) and KE looks like they did well at 357 pax/flt (if they ran 3x weekly service) or around 268 pax/flt if they already began 4x weekly service. I can't remember whether or not KE had started its 4th weekly flight in May. Not bad any way you look at it, though.

Even though BA pax figures are less than that of KL they still saw a slight 2% increase as compared to last May. I thought this flight might see a bit larger jump in performance due to the switch to Heathrow. Nothing drastic but maybe more than a 2% increase.

Oh, and sorry for the chart being tough to read. It's difficult trying to paste an Excel spreadsheet on to this forum. Ha.

Enplaned means departing passengers (flying DFW-AMS.) Deplaned means arriving passengers (flying AMS-DFW.)

Why no AA figures?

AA/Eagle

81.9% Marketshare

Enplaned 199,177
NRSA 3,955
Total Enplaned 203,132

Deplaned 189,214
NRSA 3,971
Total Deplaned 193,185

Total Enplaned and Deplaned 396,317
Total May '07 392,281

Change: up 1% vs May 07.



Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.

I have a good source inside AA that says they are seriously considering DFW-MAD for next spring. Given the economy, I wouldnt bet the house on it. It is a very good possibility.

KE was a surprise for everyone. Theyve done well at DFW. In May, I believe they had 4x weekly service. But 268 passengers on a plane that seats 301 is an 89% LF. Thats really good.

Even though LH has had a decrease in passenger, they are still doing very well. A 90% LF is really good.

Good to see everyone at DFW doing well.

I hear ya but since there are a lot of international flights from AA it is impossible from those numbers to figure out which routes are carrying how many pax/per. This was the point of my post. I like to look at specific routes and how they perform and it's really easy when you have a single international carrier with singular pax figures.

As far as new international service, let's not even consider it right now as carriers are not expanding much (aside from EK and a few others) and DFW is going to have to truly build service with any new carriers that might come to the airport (aside from maybe QF but that route will require a lot of marketing, too).
