Re: New Orleans Aviation Thread - 2019

CM: 70.2% full outbound (MSY-PTY) 1567 pax/2232 seats 91.7% full inbound (PTY-MSY) 1933 pax/2108 seats Isn't the first time we've seen a disparity like this for [email protected]. I'm wondering what causes it; best guess is a surge in demand on one of the days they don't fly? ...of course the obvious followup...

That route is the most confounding of all!

Yet that route remains 4class and daily. Sure, but correct me if I'm wrong, I don't think ...
