Low Load Factor in evenings?
« on: September 15, 2011, 09:13:47 PM »
Hi, my airline is Canada Airways and based in Toronto. How come my Load Factors in morning and evening schedule of Toronto - Calgary and Vancouver are totally different?
The prices are same, the load factor in the evening (take off at 18:00 and after) has been dropped sharply since two game weeks ago.
The morning flights have around 80% load.
Does anyone has same problem? Or just my competitor "plays" something?
Thanks.

Your flights at 1905, 1915 and 1930 are too close to each other.

With 2000 pax demand, your flignts need to be 25 or 30 minutes apart.  Since they are not, you are subject to LF penalty.

Thanks JumboShrimp, I played this game for a long time, but I didn't know that rule.
This is my first time to make the flights so close.

It is actually a new rule that came into effect for the first time in MT5 (AWS version 1.3).
