Per the DOT's DB1B, as analyzed by PAXstats; below are the nation's highest yielding routes. Eligible routes are those that were at least 250 miles apart and have more than at least 100 passengers daily. Yields were adjusted to a standard stage length for ranking purposes.

You can see why MSP is such a profitable hub. Lot's of routes where MSP is one of the most profitable cities.

How many of those routes are served by only one airline with direct service? Routes with no competition usually have the highest fares.

CLT also seems to be on there a lot. Interesting that neither MIA or LAX make the list.

That is interesting, as they do have their high yielding tier as well - but those cities overall could be expected to have fewer as far as domestics go.

It would help if the title of the thread was changed to 'US Domestic Markets'.

Fascinating list. I am really not surprised to see my ol' town on there. What I am surprised by is the city pair we are in, BNA-CLT. Caught me totally off guard and backs up why we have a handful of mainline jets flying between the two cities each day.

Quoting MOBflyer (Thread starter):
Eligible routes are those that were at least 250 miles apart and have more than at least 100 passengers daily.

That cuts out a LOT of lucrative city pairs, the most prominent of which to me are the NE Shuttle routes between Boston/NY, NY/DC. Note how BOS-PHL made #4, as well as the relative prevalence of IAD and DCA in the list. I guarantee you there are MUCH more than 100 daily pax on such routes. Does the DOT publish a separate report for these super-short, easily super-profitable routes?



Proceed on course...

I second that.... I thought this thread was about a comparison about different countries' domestic markets...

PAXstats created this report from raw DOT data - so I can set the parameters to whatever i want them.

Keep in mind that this is not route performance, but rather city-pair market yields. Given the low O&D (50 PDEW), CO would need to capture high yielding connection passengers too - which may not be the case.

Interesting to see BOS-PHL on there even with the competition from WN on routes to Manchester and Providence. I have a paper at home somewhere that found that fares in that market dropped tremendously after WN started serving the secondary airports near Boston from Philly. US and Airtran must have made a killing before (not that they're exactly losing money there either)...

My guess is this is created from the DB1B dataset? I should start drilling in my loaded copy from 2007 and see what the most profitable routes were then... But then again, I should probably worry more about my thesis than random stats Big grin
