There can be many variables, mainly in relation to compeition (number of flights, type of a/c flown, prices (yours and theirs), RI and CI), also departure times are important. From looking at it most likely a combination of the above.

Time of day is also a factor. Most pax like to travel between 0500-2400 if you put a schedule from 0200 at night pax will not prefer to travel.
