Loads last year were poor - passenger seat factor 76.8%, down from 77.5%, and in terms of raw capacity, 66.8% against a breakeven load factor of 66.4%.

As aircraft deliveries slow and DWC gets more full up, you'll see those numbers get more flattered and your seats more full, but the really their issue seems to be bad timing on top of a slowdown in pax - jet fuel creeping up, pax numbers not increasing enough to cover capacity, and a massive increase in debt service effective costs from 300bp to 400bp.

That's more of a digression though to the question of loads - 70-80% whilst that looks "full" to us, is really not good enough for the airline!
