DOT Rejects ExpressJet Bid For Confidentiality Of T-100 Data
The U.S. Transportation Dept. yesterday rejected a motion from ExpressJet seeking confidential treatment of T-100 data from its branded flying, and a recent request from JetBlue using similar arguments will likely get the snub from the department.
Barring an appeal from the carrier, ExpressJet's T-100 data for April-July will become available for public view within 10 days.
ExpressJet used a Freedom of Information Act exemption to bolster its claim that competitors could use the T-100 figures to gather data on revenue passenger enplanements, revenue aircraft miles scheduled and revenue aircraft miles flown and ramp up competition against the months-old operation. JetBlue used the same arguments to argue for confidentiality for routes launched since July 2006.

Good to see numbers improve, and these generally follow their disclosure than some of the western markets are seeing strongest loads.

Off the subject....
Knoope-You still going to post monthly T100 Midwest data on the yahoo boards? Been looking everyday but still nothing yet. I've read it every month for years...Thanks!!

Yeah, I think so. I had thought of maybe doing it here or on Flyertalk instead. But it's probably more detail than a general board like tihs is interested in, where topics can quickly get burried a few pages under in a day or two if not replied to. And I'm not sure enough people on Flyertalk are interested in that level of detail, either.
The key reason I did not post May yet to Flyertalk is that Skywest's May apparently numbers didn't get submitted in time to make the DoT report. (That's all fo Skywest, UA, DL and YX) So I wouldn't have the Skywest numbers. Sometimes the DoT site does a mid-month update, so I was hoping they would update and have Skywest's numbers, but so far not.
The next scheduled T100 release is for this Thursday, and hopefully Skywest will be included so I can post complete numbers. I'll do it over on Yahoo.
