PLF = RPK/ASK
where RPK is revenue passenger kilometre and ASK is the available seat kilometre.
If the total revenue passenger is 100 flying 200 KM and the available seat is 300 flying 200KM then PLF is
PLF = (100 * 200) / (300 * 200) = .66 = 66%.
My question is why do we have the distance (200KM) in the equation since it is in numerator and denominator which they will cancel each other.

Load Factor = (number of passengers carried (revenue))*(distance/available seat*distance) *100
