DFW Foreign Carrier Estimated June 2017 Loads

Postby Greg on Thu Aug 03, 2017 12:25 pm

Here are the estimated load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW for June 2017. Nearly everyone doing a pretty good business in the summer. Cayman returns for the summer with their 8(?) flights and seemingly typical light loads.

How did we arrive at the data?
I took publicly available seat counts and other published data showing available data and came up with these estimates. I do not guarantee 100% accuracy, but I think we are fairly close to the true numbers. OAG, Various “Source” websites, airline sites etc.

AeroMexico – 60 flights with 99 seats
Air Canada - 146 flights with 73 seats, 30 flights with 75 seats
Avianca - 17 flights with 96 seats
British Airways - 15 flights with 337 seats, 15 flights with 275 seats
Emirates - 30 flights with 354 seats
Etihad - 30 flights with 239 seats
Interjet - 52 flights with 150 seats
Japan Airlines - 30 flights with 161 seats
Korean - 21 flights with 248 seats
Lufthansa - 30 flights with 216 seats
Qantas - 30 flights with 484 seats inbound and 355 seats outbound (lower outbound estimate for blocked seats)
Qatar - 29 flights with 358 seats, one flights with 259 seats
Volaris – 13 flights with 179 seats
WestJet - 13 flights with 113 seats, six flights with 168 seats, four flights with 130 seats, and two flights with 134 seats

Thanks as usual for posting this data Greg.

I worked with your figures and reviewed the ones reported by the Mexican Aviation Authority (DGAC) as well, thus estimating American Airlines' load factors in the Mexico City - Dallas route:

36,748 total passengers transported in 295 flights made in the DFW-MEX-DFW route, averaging 125 passengers per flight and a load factor of approximately 78.3%.

In terms of market share in the very same DFW-MEX-DFW route:

AAL..... 61.9%
AIJ..... 21.6%
SLI..... 16.5%

As for the DFW-GDL-DFW route, 13,362 passengers were transported during the month and my estimates show a 68.2% market share for American and the 31.8% remaining for Volaris. The approximate load factors were 86.8% for the former and 91.3% for the latter.

Best regards.
