January 2022 Foreign Carrier Estimated Load Factors at DFW


It's been nearly two years since we've last done this, but its time to bring back the tradition. Returning here are our monthly estimates for the load factors for the foreign carriers at DFW. Now in the past I would suggest these estimates, which I think are fairly close to the real numbers, are a good look at the overall health of a route. Certainly load factors aren't everything, as they don't show how many high yield F and J seats are sold and filled for example. But, I think it usually gives a decent picture. As we come out (hopefully) of the worst of the panedemic, I'm not sure I'd read so heavily into these as perhaps we did in the past. Certainly I wouldn't be as quick to call out an airline that is in the 40s or 50s as we would have pre-pandemic.

Anyway, these estimates are provided for your information and enjoyment. 

How did we arrive at the data?
I took publicly available seat counts and other published data (OAG, airline sites etc.) showing available seats for sale and came up with these estimates. I do not guarantee 100% accuracy, but I think we are fairly close to the true numbers.  As far as the enplaning and deplaning passenger counts, those were supplied directly from DFW Airport.

I'm interested
