Good evening ladies and gents.

 

I wanted to ask: Is there any easy way to check the route loadfactor bar without indivdually opening each route details tab? I find my competitors lower their prices and I'm unable to catch them doing this, which results in half or even a quarter of the profit I was originally getting.

 

Just to clarify I am asking about the "blue bar" aka alliance and hub pax, I am able to see when the loadfactor goes below 100%. I'm just looking for a way to see the loadfactor bar without going into each route or through each of my aircrafts flight list tab.

 

Thank you for any assistance you are able to provide me with.

Click on ‘routes’ then click on ‘load factor Y’ you should then find the routes are now listed according to load factor, lowest first.

I would like to see a seperate collumb on the route tabs for 'connecting pax percentage' or something, or just the bars we have for the route research windows instead of the numerical percentages. This would make it alot easier to manage poorly performing routes.

 

Or even just add a setting to show 'total pax' or 'direct pax' in the route tab.

What he means is if you don't have a hub and someone under cuts you its easy to see this on the route screen as the load faster can be seen at say 75%. If you have a hub in place your flights can be 'topped up' by through passengers ie the blue bar. If a route has 75% normal load and 25% connecting load it will still show as 100% load on the route screen. The problem is that the connecting load only gives half the money as the normal. If someone then under cuts you, you could see a load factor of 10% normal and 90% connection load and lose a lot of money but there's no easy way of seeing this without going into individual routes.

 

We could do with a split figure for normal and connecting passengers on the route screen ie 10% / 90% to show the true passenger load.
