The world is still some 13 years behind current levels, so it's hard to compare directly but it seems fine.

I can only go from what I know about my local airport Manchester, but in 1998 there was only 1 direct daily 767-300 flight with BA (approx. 200 seats) from MAN-JFK and demand shows an average 360 a day in AWS.  There would no doubt have been a decent number connecting via other airports too, so it looks pretty accurate.

Have you only just opened the route? 

You are only flying there twice a week so your route image will still be very low.  You're also competing against 2 other airlines, one with a CI of 100 so they'll take the majority of the passengers.  One of your flights departs at 0455, which will reduce your LFs even more.
