Does anyone know how is US Airways doing on their Lisbon flights? Any load factors?

Loads on all European routes are avaeraging well over 90% this summer.
Lisbon is of course a seasonal destination.
No idea as to revenue/yields though.

PHL-LIS does not do nearly as well as other destinations. 2007 peak data is not yet available, however for 2006 peak (June-Aug), the average daily passenger load was less than 100 each way. For a 757, that's a load factor of around 50%. I do not however know if the Yields or cargo revenue were significant enough to make the flight profitable. On the positive side for US, each of CO's two daily 757 EWR-LIS flights, did not (when averaged) do as well as the US flight. Of course, the CO flight competes directly with the only other direct flights from NYC on TAP - which does very well.

It's overbooked today and tomorrow...and full the rest of the weekend, if that means anything. Everytime I've looked at it, it has been full.

I'm only stating what the airlines officially reported as last summer's numbers. If you can provide an actual Load count for the entire month of June and/or thus far for July, it would show an improvement over last year. One week of Loads doesn't really prove very much as far as overall performance is concerned as other weeks in the month may have significantly less. Those blips (assuming that is what they are) could be infrequent tour groups.

Yeah that's cool...I was just responding to someone asking what the loads were. I know this summer has been very busy!

I thought LIS went year-round? Or am I thinking of another destination?

This summer has been insane. Last summer had nothing on this summer from what I've seen. I already can't wait to see our Q3 profits  Smile

I've been wondering how US's three newest destinations have been performing (Brussels, Zurich and Athens). Does anyone have any insight on how they've done?

The loads have been incredible. You can count with your fingers the number of times that the ZRH flight has gone out with open seats all summer. BRU has quite impressive loads as well.
ATH has strong loads considering their weight restrictions.
There weren't any significant start-up low periods. Full loads were being seem in the first week of ops.
