November T100's (onboard loads)

Here are the onboard loads for November for Midwest and some select MKE competitors. I posted earlier the Southwest nubmers, but here's the full set. From this point forward I think it makes sense to combine Midwest and Frontier numbers as the cross pollination between the two carriers started this month. Trouble is...the Midwest flights operated by A319 didn't show up in the report. So note that these onboard loads do NOT include the A319 flights to MCO/RSW/PHX/LAX/LAS/TPA.

As always, remember that onboard loads are only half the picture when trying to judge relative performance, and don't say much about fare or traffic composition.

----------------------

I talked in the earlier Southwest thread about some of the thru passenger flows in markets like MKE-MCI-DAL and MKE-TPA-FLL, but until the market share stats come out we won't really have a good idea about fares or local traffic. And this is the first month of the WN service.

It seems likely that the A319 loads were lower, although it's not clear how much. The afternoon 319 they ran which came back to MKE too late for any connections probably carried a lot of open seats. That is, until the Thansgiving period came, and then even the 10:00pm MKE-LAX red eye was packed many days.

So far Southwest hasn't cut back any of their original flight schedule, though they have changed some of the "thru" flight routings back and forth a few times. Midwest, for this coming summer, is just running 1x 319 instead of 2x 717's to PHX/LAS/MCO, a decrease of 62 seats per day. And AirTran pulled their 3rd MKE-LAS, and recently pulled one daily nonstop each to BWI, RSW and FLL from their summer schedule (RSW and FLL are WN dedicated 1-stop markets). I don't know that any of this suggests that WN is kicking butt, but it does show adjustments which might be due to WN's new presence.
