[-] Low Load Factor
« on: July 14, 2015, 07:48:53 AM »
GW#3

Bingo Wings

Route Boston - Newcastle.

RI - 100. CI - 94.

Demand 280 pax / 2 planes a day (2,5 hour difference). No copmetition.

Load factor 25-30%.

Why LF is so low? I fly with the same planes even longer routes and LF over there are 90%. Why here I get some kind of penalty? I got this low LF in all routes to United Kingdom.

Rest of the Europe LF are ok.

You are flying a small narrowbody aircraft (737 / MD-90) on a long transatlantic route.. Passengers do not like that. (this is normal behaviour of the system .. larger narrowbody like 757 will work better)

yeah, transatlantic 737 are rather tricky. I fly a few of them, but above 200 demand, profitability plummets.

Ok, but how come on for. Ex. Route to Cardiff with the same plane i have 95% LF? Or my flight to Brazil (3300 nm) which is much longer, LF is almost 100%? Where is the logic? Once it is to small, other time is ok.

It's demand dependant. When the demand rises with time, the effect triggers. In previous GW3, I did have loads of 737 flying from Cardiff to the new world, just not on the biggest lines. And from Glasgow, I had to switch to 777s in the 2020s on many lines, because demand was too high for 777s. That's logical : people will accept exotic planes for exotic travels. Glasgow-JFK is not as exotic as, mmmh, let's say Cardiff-Charlotte.
