Okay I'll take this a step further. Their average one way fare is $82.68. Assuming that about 70% of their passengers are not making a connection their revenues for the month of October were $307,900,320,000. Now thats what I call good yield.

I'm personally getting tired of that 32 stop flight home after work.
Also do they mean to imply that 5.32 billion individual people flew WN in any time frame? I will guarantee that 5.32 billion different people have flow no single airline in history, probably not all carriers combined have carried that number.
it's getting harder not to tell people they are really odd if they think an airplan can be sexy.

I'd wish people would stop knocking on WN having an image of a "cramped" airplane.
The seating pitch on WN's 737 fleet averages around 33.6 inches, which is excellent by low-cost carrier (LCC) standards. In fact, AA's much-touted More Room Throughout Coach setup isn't much roomier than WN's setup.
Having flown both WN 737-200 and 737-300 planes, they actually have pretty comfortable seating for an all-Economy layout.

Ray Chuang I want some of what your smoking, "AA's much-touted More Room Throughout Coach setup isn't much roomier than WN's setup" come on i was so cramped in SW i will never fly them again. AA's coach seating is amazing compared to the other carriers, now only if their service was as good it would be great, but I will take more room in coach over service
