You need to built, people need to get aware you exist and you fly. Wait a few days and you will see it will pick up. Have a look to your route image, that will increase through time. I helps a little to lower your prices with 10-15% until Route image is nearing the 100.

Patience is critical with this game mate!

Route image is 0 to 100, I find you need 60+ to get a nice sensible LF :)

You also want to do some low level General Marketing to get your Company Image (CI) up, for Y-class low levels are fine, but more is better - I operate regional stuff very happily at 50 CI,

The length of your flights can be a factor if you are using HD seats, pax don't like them beyond 2 hours each way... it's not a big effect, but maybe look at refitting to standard seating on longer routes, while doing that you can also install a few C-class seats (4-6 seats I'd suggest, assuming you have some C-Class demand).  These should fill gradually as your CI rises.

Yield c/RPK = Revenue Passenger Kilometres, i.e. cents earned per ticket sold, per kilometre flown
Revenue c/ASK = Available Seat Kilometres, i.e. cents earned per seat (sold or not), per kilometre flown
