The Feds have issued some load factor stats for November. Remember that November is a slow-ish month.
Midwest appears to be holding its own at MKE
. They have strong competition from NWA.
= 83.8%, MKE
= 46.6%, MKE
= 66.9%. MKE
= 34.9%, MKE
= 36.4% and MKE
= 88.5%, MKE
= 76.5%, MKE
= 78.8%. MKE
= 62.9%, MKE
= 68.8% and MKE
Midwest is doing well, mostly, but it looks as if NWA is losing it's shirt on most of its routes out of MKE
However, except for three routes, Midwest is not doing quite so well out of MCI
: 75.3% - excellent, especially for November.
: 68.3% - very good.
: 63.1% - good, but (as with MKE
above) probably three or four points below break even.
After that it goes downhill, such as:
: 57.3% - not good.
: 37.5% - really not good.
Even though MCI
is bad, DSM
does better with 63.1% (OMA
It's only one month, but the November l/fs followed a similar pattern to October.
On the MKE
run, for example, Frontier's loads were consistently about 10 or 11 points higher than Midwest.
