Its called it strategy, not cheating.

Except for the rule against deliberately BK'ing a smaller, fragile competitor by hitting all or most of their routes..

Not sure if the 2nd part is true when you're talking about small capacities (magic carpet style).
With a CI of only 17 right now in MT I am still selling almost 100% of my C and F seats.

So, if not for the separate mechanism enforcing the magic carpet ban (and now the A/C size penalty also), it would have been possible to fill a small plane with 30-50 F and C pax, when flying into the correct airports (LHR) even with a low CI.

You are always referring to LF. Question is how many out of possible C/F PAX do you get? Is there any competition?
Which aircraft you are referring to fill C/F completely? I doubt system makes it possible, because smaller planes canīt be fitted with F anymore.

This was a bit before I really started keeping track of the planes I have flown on (regretably) but I recall being on a narrow body with very limited amenities that I happened to be on for a flight from Tampa to Charlotte although it originated elsewhere in Florida. The people who didn't get off that sardine can when I did were apparently on their way to Los Angeles. I really can't imagine how miserable that must be. The last time I flew transcontinental I was a young kid and it was definitely a wide body with two aisles. I also know I got something resembling a meal, a look at the cockpit and junior pilot wings among other things so it might as well be a thousand years ago.
