Oversupply
« on: January 17, 2012, 01:11:33 PM »
Could someone clarify when oversupply is reached.

I thought that you could provide 200% of capacity without being accused of oversupply. What is the exact figure?

Cheers

The level is at about 200% of the average daily demand. This limit applies systematically to a single airline, and by rule to an alliance.

If you're trying to stay profitable, I wouldn't suggest exceeding more than 150%

Cheers mate - that's what I thought.

I'm running a route where the lowest demand is on a saturday with 363 but I have a capacity of 606 - which basically means I'm providing about 167% of demand. This is nowhere near the 200% mark and there is only 1 other airline on the route and they are not part of the same alliance. Odd??

200% would be double demand, so 726 seats would be 200%

Yeah - that's my point. 200% capacity would be 726. So, as I am only providing 606 seats, why am I getting an OVERSUPPLY notification??

If you're talking about Karachi-Doha, you should probably check the return route. You have 2 a342 + 2 a320 flights on a Sunday, which probably adds up to ~900 seats. That's where the oversupply is coming from.
