Working on a project here, and the airlines don't want to help out. SO.... Where else to get the numbers but Flyertalk

Out of my home city EWR what you say (based on experience) is the heaviest route/flight (fullest planes, not most flights per day) for CO?

Thank You

In my experience, and in domestic routes, I would say EWR-LAX and EWR-SFO.
Flights are often over booked, tons of bumped passengers, and very little chance for elites upgrades to F.

My original report was to focus on Domestic, but if I have the info, I might stick in a bit about international flights as well.
I would really appreciate if you be able to ask for me.

I am trying to draw up a report how the cost cutting measures of reducing flights/capacity is causing overcrowding of flights and effecting comfort etc.. (for night school)

Intl theres only 1 place TLV.

CO serves it Daily twice a day both are 777s and usually are sold-out or darn close to it. I wouldnt expect to see any cut-backs to TLV unless a Full scale war would brake out

The only place CO I believe right now serves with 2 777 a day year round. I think CO will be having 2 777s also EWR-LHR when they start up LHR service, but Im not sure about that

That is a 762 for the daytime flight an a 777 for the overnight.

Regarding the original question, it seems all the flights I am on are FULL to the brim! In particular, EWR-SFO is often sold out.

I second the EWR-TLV flight. I have taken this flight several times in the last year and it is always either sold out or has less than 5 seats left after boarding.
One time I had to pull my trump card (Plat Elite) to get a guaranteed seat on a sold out flight in full Y. That one really hurt.
