How does this compare to back when OLT operated double daily flights to Hamburg (using Q400s if I recall correctly)? And easyjet before that (3-4x weekly or so with A319s?)?TheLocalYokel said:Hamburg 1407 passengers, ave load 14.7, load factor 39.7%
Hamburg is the most disappointing on the face of things. It's been running for over three months, albeit single daily to begin with, now double daily on weekdays.
In February its average load was 18.6 and in March 17.6. To have dropped to 14.7 especially in late spring is a cause for pondering.
Both easyJet and OLT commenced a Hamburg route in the winter of 2005-2006.How does this compare to back when OLT operated double daily flights to Hamburg (using Q400s if I recall correctly)? And easyjet before that (3-4x weekly or so with A319s?)?
May 2013 BHX BRS BRS / BHX Berlin 4500 7600 169% Dusseldorf 16000 0 - Frankfurt 22000 1600 7% Hamburg 3000 1400 47% Hanover 5700 500 9% Munich 15000 800 6% Stuttgart 3600 0 -
In summer 2006 (the main period of the short-lived easyJet Hamburg route) the flight left BRS daily except Saturdays at 1815 and arrived HAM 2100, leaving HAM at 2125 and arriving back at BRS at 2210.I am surprised that they did not make a profit from it, Were the timings not suitable for office hours?
The Munich and Hannover flights from BRS were only part month of course as the routes didn't start until 13 May.I thought it might be interesting to compare with Birmingham,
Billund, Toulouse and Gothenburg are seeing an average of 25-27 per flight giving a load factor of around 50% give or take, so not too dissimilar to BRS.BHX's bmi regional routes seem to have the same sort of load factors
It seems to be non-bookable after early November. Originally it was shown as 5 x weekly this coming winter. It was the surprise one when the routes were announced despite it being one of Bristol's twin cities. Maybe it will be back for next summer.Looks like hannover has been dropped.
