Hi,

Can anyone explain what the 'Available Seat Kilometres' and 'Revenue Passenger Kilometres' statistics are?

What useful information can be gleaned from them?  And is this information important?

Cheers.

If you fly a 70 seater 1 kilometer, then you just flew 70 seat kilometers.  Available seat kilometers is the summation of all the flights you have scheduled whereas Revenue Passenger Kilometers is the summation of all the seats that were actually sold on those scheduled flights.  It is a stat that makes it easier to compare apples to apples.  If you have 1 flight that is 10,000nm in length and a competitor has 10 flights 1,000nm in length, the 1,000nm guy is obviously going to transport more passenger.  Seat miles doesn't care how many passengers transported--just how many miles flown with seats/passengers.

So the closer those two figures are together the better... is that correct?

If you have 100 ASM and 50 RSM, you have a 50% load factor.  If you have 100 ASM and 90 RSM, you have a 90% load factor.  The closer they are, the better as you're flying planes with less empty seats, but just because they are closer together or your flying with higher load factors doesn't neccessarily mean you're doing better than anyone else

Much clearer now, thank you LemonButt.
