NWA reports a strong 71.1% overall load factor for November 2002, and an awesome 82% load factor on Pacific routes and an impressive 78% load factor on Atlantic routes. Not too shabby, NWA!

Well, its not about load factors. The name of the game is yields. At what price did they get the 71% loadfactor, and what's their operating cost? Presumably much better than [some of] the competition . . .

All the majors are working on a reasonably similar pricing structure at the moment, so I say this was good stuff from Northwest. 78% on Transatlantics in November is fantastic, well done Northwest. I know that the yields are crap, but they are crap for everyone, so even though this will still be a loss for Northwest, operationally they have to be commended

Another thing to consider is capasity. Think about it... NW is a smaller airline than it was last year or the year before. They have been way more conservative with capasity - offering fewer flights and on smaller planes. LF will increase and increase as long as capasity stays where it is and people still continue to fly. So while this is good news in terms of people actually flying - things are still depressed and the future is bleak.
