UACO July consolidated traffic data

Other Flyertalkers are much better at interpreting (and disputing) the traffic data, so I will leave it to the rest of you to make what you will of the data. I saw another article that suggested capacity cuts in all of the major airlines compared to last year, but still it appeared that UACO was lagging behind its competitors for this past July.

Continental Airlines reported July on-time performance of 64.1 percent, down 10.2 percentage points, and the airline flight-completion factor edged down 0.6 percentage points to 97.9 percent.

What a joke

IMO, this is the key quote:

For July 2012, consolidated passenger revenue per ASM or PRASM, is estimated to have remained flat compared to last year.
Unit revenue remained flat year over year. While bargain-hunters may applaud this, it's a sign that UA contnues to experience difficulty in pushing revenues higher. Perhaps because those willing to pay are looking to other airlines? AA increased its unit revenue by an industry-leading 4.7% in July.

So this is saying that 35% of flights were delayed and 2% were cancelled?

And July PRASM increase comparisons:

Continental Airlines?

This will not stand for business travelers. Flip a coin to see if you show up on time...

And that's just pathetic.

Holy moly. I'm starting to get nervous about my mileage balance. If they can't turn this around, this is gonna get ugly.

At least based on my flights in July, I was surprised the ontime rate was so high!

That is a truly atrocious number! You had a greater than 1 in 3 chance of being delayed in July. Has an on-time percentage for any carrier ever been this low?

Can we please all wait for a CO apologist to explain to us - in terms we can UNDERSTAND - why this ISN'T bad??

I just don't want my posts to be deleted in advance of an apologist's explanation.


Thank you!!

Dave

Merger related "growing pains" seems to be their go-to line.

And by growing pains they must mean me booking my next trip on WN. Saved myself 40% or ~$300. Thanks for the discount Jeffy!!!
