LAX-HKG Load Factors On CX

Wed Oct 25, 2006 10:43 am

Does anyone know what are the load factors on this route for CX, LAX-HKG?
Are they always near 100% even during the winter and spring?

Some generic numbers for north america is available on the company web site, I dont think anyone would be too keen to advertise the exact LF on each route.

According to 2005 ICAO data, Cathay averaged a load factor between 78-80% on the LAX-HKG route. Since this data is yearly, it is unknown how steep the seasonsal flucuations are, but I suspect loads drop off quite a bit in the winter and spring since the summer is likely to produce close to a 100% load factor.

According to DOT stats, the airline had a 73.5% annual load factor on the route, which varied from a high of 82% in the 2nd quarter to a low of 66% in the 4th quarter.

Similarly HKG-JFK produced average 83.8% for the year, while HKG-SFO stood at 87.8%.

Even with the weaker load factor the LAX flight was by far the largest market of the carriers in North America, with 3 daily B744 services.

LAXIntl, could you direct us to where on the DOT's website this is? I am having trouble finding it on Transtats too.
