Air Berlin @ ZRH, Loads?

Thu Sep 18, 2003 1:08 am

I am wondering how the loads on Air Berlin's Zurich routes are?
Is it correct that Air Berlin operates a second daily Dortmund service from Zurich as of October 03?
Thanks.

Yep, two flights on weekdays as per 1st November.

Loads: 9420 departing Passengers from 1st until 16th September (total 106 flights, 16 to DTM, 28 to HAM, 30 to MGL and 32 to TXL)

Load factor is difficult to tell as the flights are a mix of B737's and BAe-146's (34 flights with BAe146-200, 4 flights with BAe146-300, 11 flights with B737-400, 53 flights with B737-700 and 4 flights with B737-800).

If you take an average of 140 seats per flight, then the load factor isn't that great. But it's only a guess and not confirmed!!!

@Unique: If your figures are correct this would mean a load-factor of 69% on average, not that bad. There will surely also be some no-shows in addition to that.

The figures are the actual figures of Passengers travelled (no noshows counted)!
