Here's the potted highlights from the CAA's provisional July stats.
Pride of place has to be Emirates with an astonishing 45000+ passengers flown to/from DXB
, up over 25% on July 2006. This equates to 366 passengers per flight or a whopping 84% load (based on 77WHDs operating both services!).
has 12000 passenger (up 12%) or 192 per flght and QR
17500 passenger (up 21%) for an average of 283 per flight.
Other good performances include LX
- by my reckoning it averaged 85 pax per flight. SV
has 1500 passengers (83 per service, and yes, they do have 5th freedom rights between MAN
as adverts have been placed in local papers offering that route); LO
carried over 3000 passengers to WAW
(on 54 flights, this is 59 per flight which means their services must be at least 70% full so could be the reason why C0 may take it over if most passengers are leisure related).
had another healthy increase (8000+ passengers), as did HEL
(this almost doubled. Did they really operate double the flights this year compared to last?) and CDG
gained 5000 scheduled passengers whilst AMS
Pakistan saw ISB
have 2500 extra passengers but a combined loss of 1600 passengers from KHI
Question marks have to be raised against RTM
(just above 1000 passengers) and MXP
(if it operated 10 weekly) though there are a whole load of services with "iffy" performances!
