Hey guys! I've been away for a while and it was a surprise to find all the interesting posts you've been doing during the month.
Last night I found something that I thought would be of interest to some of you too. On CABs website they usually publish statistics of domestic and international passengers in the Philippines, but never before have I seen detailed information of ALL
airlines, and even more so, the load factor of every airline operating in the country:
(Choose the first file)
The most notable figures according to me are the following:
: On January 1, the airline added a third flight on a 77W (a 50% increase in capacity), but still the airline kept an LF
of 91% on all three flights! Usually the LF
decreases after adding capacity and then gradually gain back, but EK
seems to have filled the new flight up without any problems.
haf LFs of 90%, 89% and 84%.
of 36%?? No wonder the airline is cutting Manila!
NOTE: ALthough I do find the numbers reliable, the LFs has to be double checked. Example: EKs figure of 210,210 passengers has been divided by 90 days, which is 2336. This figure has in turn been divided by six flights, and your result is 389 passengers per flight. CAB has chosen the 427-seated 77W to get an LF
of 91%, but EK
mostly use a 442-seated 77W which gives you an LF
After realising this, I noticed that the figure for DL
(and maybe others?) are surely correct, but the LF
is incorrect! The LF
is unfortunately correct.
