GW1 - Massive drop in PAX numbers
« on: June 03, 2018, 01:19:01 PM »
What's happened to demand/passenger numbers in GW1 overnight? Woke up to a massive drop in load factors, income and passengers carried. I looked for events, but there are no global events, then checked my CI which is fine and my rivals to see they have the same thing happen to them, and everyone in the gw.

Seems bizarre, any insights?

Same here, I was going to ask the same question. My 757F's have also taken a hit on the Cargo

I've observed the same. Was there perhaps a financial down turn around this time? or related to the USSR?

Hmh, for some reason the event news did not trigger for this global event. In any case, temporary.

Thanks, I was going crazy trying to figure out if too many planes had gone into C/D Checks or and my competition introduced a lot of aircraft at once.....

Interested too. Based on the demand drop of about 10% and the 6 week duration it seems like maybe a slight market downturn in Europe?

There was also a railroad strike in the US, in the middle of this, to complicate things.  (I am looking at some unusual patterns on other player pax charts).

Overall, probably just a mild economic downturn.

There has bee a massive drop in PAX between Munich and Antalya. Numbers are about 50% of what they were. Numbers from my other bases to Antalya have remained the same. Any ideas what happened?

Didn't Munich have an airport upgrades?  There have been inconsistencies in demand when airport upgrades.

Yes it did and i suspect that is the reason now. It makes zero sense but i have seen the same things happen in the past when new airports opened like Narita and SIN. PAX numbers dropped by half on my routes there also.
