HA Load Factors

Sun Feb 15, 2004 5:11 am

Can anybody check the load factors on HA for a departure 20 Feb.,Flt. 2, and returning on 28 Feb., Flt. 1? I'm am confirmed, just trying to see if they are overbooked and might be asking for voluntary bumps.

Thanks in advance.

Airlines generally don't like to release specifics on load factors to the public. But a search of booking class availability can be enlightening:

20FEB HA 2 HNLLAX F2 P0 Y3 W1 Q0 B0 M0 N0 T0 H0 K0 S0 Z0 L0
28FEB HA 1 LAXHNL F4 P0 Y5 W3 Q1 B0 M0 N0 T0 H0 K0 S0 Z0 L0

Flights look pretty full to me, they may well be asking for volunteers.

Hawaiian717--- what does that code mean, and how could you tell the flight is full?

Qantas747-438: A 9 would show lots of seats open, a 0 is probably full. If there is a just a period, ".", that means that there are no more seats available in that class, e.g. overbooked. So looking at the numbers, it looks like you might get lucky. Present yourself as a volunteer when you check in, as this will get you first in line when they do the gate announcement. Plus, the rampies won't load your bag until you are confirmed on board. Saves a lot of hassle not having to unload the whole plane to find your bag.

I knew I could count on my fellow a.neters to help me out here. I will present myself when I check in as a volunteer. It will be easy since I am only planning on taking a roll-aboard, so they won't have to deal with baggage. I am planning on filing a trip report so I will let everyone know how this turns out. I would gladly take the bump...and the compensation. HA has been very generous to me in the past for giving up my seat...
