Re: Air India slams CAPA report

Where are the RPKs? Flying empty seats doesn't count (ASKs).

Now, I don't think AI has such bad load factor to not be #1 on RPK.

But who is #1 on passengers to/ from India?

There are different measures of #1.

AI certainly isn't profit.

Re: How will Hawaiian react to competition from Southwest?

One key question is when the MAXes return. The greater range and efficiency matters. Now the A321s have a little more range, but not much. WN has a natural advantage at LAS and PHX. AS has the advantage at SEA and PDX. Everywhere else is a cat fight. You are missing a key part of this. Hawaiian is o...
