Re: Int'l Carrier Load Factors at Top 30 U.S. Airports

Regarding the blocked seats on QF @ DFW, every time I've been on this flight (including in the 747 days DFW-BNE-SYD-DFW) there's been a butt in every single seat.
So, does anyone have any details on when and how many seats are blocked? Is it only during certain seasons they block seats?

Looks like I am moving over to Delta in the meantime. Any chance this has to do with EYW’s runway expansion? CLT/DCA-EYW see some cuts for the su...
