Nobody knows and the obvious things (price) don't have much effect... some people would kill to get the formula into their hands. :)

The only thing I know is that whoever has several flights, separated one from other, gets the more pax.

If I've got flights at 6, 10, 14 & 18, and my opponent has flights at 6 & 15, I'll get roughly 2/3rds of the trafic.

If his flights are at 14h45 and 14h50, I'll get 4/5ths of the pax, as its flights are too narrow, and will count only as one.

Note that I made that mistake once. I had 3 flights, 1 at 16h50, one at 11h25, and one at 11h35. Fill rate was 96%, 65% and 65%. Nos that they are at 16h50, 10h45 & 11h40, fill rates are 96%, 92% and 93%. With increased prices.

Company Image also helps, and route image...I think.

The simple answer is "evenly".  If there is 400 demand and there are 4 flights, you can expect 100 pax per flight.  If you are flying a 125 seat aircraft, you can get 100% load factor by dropping your prices.  If you are flying a 75 seat aircraft, you can raise your prices and still get 100% load factors.  There are a bunch of other factors at play (company image, route image, takeoff time, etc), but those are the basics.
