Check Loadfactor Online?

Fri Jan 18, 2002 5:24 am

Is it any pages where you can check loadfactor on upcoming flights expect for delta.com?
I read in a trip report that it can be done on ITN but i don't know the adress .

Considering that this was used for Sept 11th to tell the hijackers what flights would be light, I will be suprised if that information is still available, and if it is, I will be disapointed.

TG992

Yes you can check www.itn.com but it won't give you the exact loads. I very much doubt the airlines would release this information for a range of reasons.

Artsyman -- did they ever prove that that's how the hijackers chose those flights?

I could do the same thing just by going to an airport and observing number of pax at the gates over a period of time.

You can also access the loads by checking through amadeus or sabre, by checking the airlines when they flash the remainder of their seats by fare class. (I.E J.C.Y.M.B.H.V.Q.L) etc etc etc......this thing is very accurate, but for the sake of people trying to get a visual on anticipated loads, please do not over-use the system, sooner or later, they will get the idea..

If you work for Delta, you can check the loads of the flights via the extranet/intranet (travelnet) or via the travelnet hotline... tells you exactly how many seats are available... don't know of any other way unless you have access to the res system.

Yes you could sit at the gate and watch, but that isnt goingto tell you anything other than what was happening on that day, would not tell youwhat was happening on other days. I don;t know if it was proven or not, but I think it was either that or they had inside information

you can go to www.itn.com and just check the empty seats.
