For all routes with service the entirety of the first half of the year, MSY-LHR ranked 5th out of 12 routes for load factor.
I will be very interested to see how AUS, BNA and SJC do with LF going fwd with their bigger BA plane gauges. Naturally we dont have yield info so LF may not tell the whole story.
Good for them. Those are just rapidly growing metros and BA wants to be the go to airline vs the competition. We really have no TATL legacy competition here (DE is not really a legacy). MSY will just have to keep supporting the route as it has in the past. Hopefully by this time next year we will have daily 789 service.
