sudden BIG drop in Load factor on a route
« on: January 18, 2009, 05:13:50 PM »
Hey i have a problem, i fly from Dublin to Frankfurt numerous times a day, 9 i think. and the route factor has been 90+ then when i go to check it today it has plumetted! this image shows what i mean. same for the other 2 aircraft that are on the route



as far as i can tell only one other airline has joiuned the route, i am by far the biggest airline on the route and yet something has caused the drop. i did raise prices from 150-165-185 as the load factors were still over 90, i have reduced it back down to 150 now but could this be a case of one of those airlines on the route putting $1 fares or something? there should be enough capacity there to support us all anyways



any ideas what has happened? i will monitor the load factor now that i have set the price back to 150.

Some bug involved there perhaps, keep an eye to it and report more info.

Seems to be normal for the last two days. I believe that it is related to some actions made by some other airline but I cannot see what it was and why it was doing that ...

I do not play the full version, right now, but can it be a c-check on one of your planes ?

Nope on a C check the aircraft doesnt fly at all, it has fixed itself now all is well, earning the pennies again now.
