So cutting to the chase,
my Long Haul aircraft 340-200 - flying over 4800NM is always at 40-60% Load Factors, with first class going around 33%. The fares were reduced by 30%.
The Route image is at 48
All Flight times leave before 23:00 and arrive on or after 5:00am except on Saturdays
I am the only carrier flying this route
On the other hand.....A320 flying about 1400 NM twice Daily has a 70-80% Load Factor, fare was reduced by 15%.
The Route image is at 14
There are two carriers flying this route.
I had the 340 aircraft first, I only recently got the A320, thus the much higher Route image on the long haul.
Anyone know whats going on here? The good news is that both are still providing profit, but I cannot figure out why the long haul flights have such a low load factor.
Has anyone noticed that Long Haul fights have lower load factors, or is it just me? I have enough money to purchase another Long Range, or Should i get Several A320's instead?
