Florida Is Strong
Here are the numbers for January through October of 2018:
Fort Lauderdale (FLL) = 81.07% JetBlue
Orlando (MCO) = 79.39% JetBlue
Keep in mind that the times are not the best. After 5 years this is very strong!! We could do alot better if the departure time was changed to early with late night return. Think we might even need the Airbus (150 seats versus 100), if this was to happen.
Philadelphia (PHL)= 62.51 American
This was the first month and it did well. Since then the numbers have dropped and we believe they will be closer to the JetBlue numbers to New York (JFK)... Pilots not being CAT II certitified has created alot of cancellations and diversions, in fact tonight turn has been cancelled.
New York (JFK)= 43.16% JetBlue
Not good. We need a 2nd mid day turn and some advertising...
Hyannis (HYA) = 13.78% Rectrix
31 of 255 seats were sold.
My god 31!!!
Looking at this, what do you think would be a good addition.
a) Another direct flight to Florida Gulf Coast?
b) Another legacy carrier flying to their hub?
We think clearly, that another flight specifically to the Gulf Coast would have loads over 80%, verus one turn per day to Detroit with Delta that will be below 50%.

You're lucky somebody got those numbers, Bill. I just wanted to make an airline like my cousin in Europe.

The New York sample size is very large now. All the high travel seasons have passed by. What a useless flight. Laughing at that top comment though!! Rectrix will do anything to appear successful and Rich Cawley thinks everyone is buying his crap. Thank god he’s on the way out (if not already out)

My theory. Massport knows that the current airlines (and Delta) aren't going to cancel the current flights because they fear facing the wrath of the agency. The current airlines will put up with breaking even or even losing some money on their Worcester routes in order to get favors at Logan. I think they see that as a good trade-off for them. Unfortunately, that could mean we won't see any additional flights from these airlines in the near future. That's why it's so important to land one of these discount carriers with desirable Florida flights. If that doesn't happen then we could be in for a disappointment as far as making ORH a thriving commercial airport. Just a thought.

Absolutely! There is no motivation to succeed for anyone.

I assume your data come from a user on airliners.net...if that is the case you should mention the source in your post.

Sorry Isaac, that is correct. The numbers are valid rest assured.
