Re: Cathay ending YVR-JFK service

I pulled T100 load factor information for the past few years. load factors on the CX flight YVR-JFK-YVR, which included passengers going onward to Hong Kong and beyond, was mostly in the 50%-60% range, some times dipping into the 40% range, sometimes in the very low 70%. This year specifically (Jan ...

Will be interesting to see what happens in August when those numbers come in. Either way, these are just loads. I have n...
