LX, LH and AF all promote cheap fares from MIA but they are all high yielding from MIA
You keep on spouting these kinds of statements about high yielding routes, and so I wonder what basis you use for this. While (revenue) load factors are relatively easy to obtain, yield information is kept very proprietary by most if not all airlines, so I wonder where you are coming from with this. Yield analysis is also much more complicated than you make it seem and many variable are at play.
I tend to believe that you just assume and with regard to LX
, the facts seem to fly in the face of what you are stating. While it is widely believed that MIA
is one of LX
's strongest transatlantic markets (as further evidenced by 4 additional frequencies during the upcoming winter, for a total of 11 weekly), CDG MIA
has, at least for the past couple of years, one of AF
's weaker North American routes, together with the now closed EWR
is not even maintaining a daily year round frequency on the route. AF
is also not sending its premium configured equipment to MIA
. All of this seems to at least point into the direction of a less than optimal yield situation.
If you are going to continue to make wild generalizations about supposed yield-based performance of certain routes, then please share with us where you are getting this information.
