UN B732, sometimes it isn't the load factor that determines a route's success. Sometimes it's what the break-even point is for a given market. For example, a few years back CO
ran a CLE
. It had the highest daily load factor in the entier CO
system, yet it lost a $1 million each month, because it was all deeply discounted fares, and Senior citizen fares. There's not business travel in that market.
Now, you get to the Commutair markets, and the break-even point, profit and loss, on average, is 6 customers per flight. Sometimes you'll have less than 6 on those flights, but more times than not, you're breaking even, or making at least a small profit. You don't have to fill a plane to make a profit. The Commutair markets are doing OK
on that score.
