Estimates of total available seats at DFW

Postby JGFrisco on Fri Jul 12, 2019 12:31 pm

Periodically I will go through and add up the total number of available seats on DFW flights. Fridays in July are the typical peak (except for added flights the Sunday after Thanksgiving, which is sometimes greater).

I used publicly available timetables and websites, and in general I used publicly available seat maps. When I could, I used Greg's seat layout numbers that he uses in his estimates.

For today, Friday July 12, there are a total of 1,037 scheduled jet flights and 13 prop flights, for a total of 1,050 scheduled flights. There are a total of 114,848 available seats on domestic flights, and 19,979 available seats on international flights today. The total available seats are 134,827, which is a record (well above the level when Delta also had a hub here).

At 74% load factor, that would be 100,000 enplaned passengers today. Should be pretty close, and maybe above that since some flights earlier this week were canceled due to weather (I was on one!).

By airline:

American 886 flights/112,767 seats
Spirit 33 flights/6,050 seats
Delta 47 flights/5,528 seats
United 33 flights/3,811 seats
Sun Country 6 flights/1,098 seats

No one else over 6 flights or 1,000 available seats

For the record, 359 of the 886 flights on AA are on Eagle flights, and about 29% of their seats are on Eagle.

These numbers don't include charter or cargo flights.
