One new flight we actually do not talk a lot about is the HA BOS-HNL flight due to all of the international additions.
I wasn't sure what to expect for results. Through first four months April 2019-July 2019, the route had 88.7% LF.
April : 83.2%
I was interested in market stimulation so I also looked at DB1B which is a 10% sample of tickets for a quarter. You can extrapolate to traffic numbers. I did this for all of Hawaii (about 6-7 airports) and then compared top 4 markets (HNL, OGG, KOA, LIH,) + others (ITO etc)
Q2 2018 Hawaii PDEW = 261
Q2 2019 Hawaii PDEW = 332
about 27% Market Increase to the Aloha State from BOS based on the extrapolation.
Markets = Q2-2018 PDEW, Q2-2019 PDEW
HNL = 133, 208
OGG = 62, 60
KOA = 30, 30
LIH = 29, 32
Others = 4,5
Not a large bump in anything but HNL. I may look at other numbers such as HA/B6 market share, possible connecting markets which I may be able to figure out (look at B6 or HA coded tickets), are a couple of particular islands weighted on arriving to Hawaii vs departing Hawaii, etc,
I do think there is some low-fare B6 feed to HNL on this route (PHL, BUF, PIT, NYC)
Looks like TAP's LIS flight will be operating daily from March 2020, and with an A339 too.
Wasn't TAP always daily from March on?
Maybe? I thought it was later. Next year they go daily from March 1st.
From looking at T-100 it wasn't daily all of March 2019 so it either went daily mid-late March or April 1 2019.
