Quoting HAWK21M (Reply 2): I'd be surprised if the trend continues in April-May,considering thats vacation time.
As the data is compared with teh same period as last year, the fact it is vacation time should not have an impact on the next figures. Unless the holiday period changes from year to year (like Easter fallin in March rather than April some years) - I'm unfamiliar with Indian holidays.
The load factors are pretty atrocious across the board, bar Paramount. Maybe some of those 738s and A320s should be turned in for 73Gs, A319s or E195s?

Quoting YVR1968 (Reply 6): The comparison is made to the same period in the prior year. So the March figures would have no bearing on April - May. You would have to compare the April.May figures to April.May of 2008.
Considering the situation aviation is in at the moment,added by the financial situation worldwide,any comparism to last year will show a dramatic drop.
I'm referring to a comparism of March 09 stats to Apri-May 09 stats to see a rise.
