Traffic Compared to TSA Screenings
The plots of TSA Screenings / US Passenger Airline Departures continues trending in the right direction; again, the trend here is more valuable that the figure itself, which should correlate loosely with load factors. It suggests that there are more passengers per flight, and theoretically the airlines are losing less money.
This is the first time a long while that I've compiled stats and not a single airline or airport has set a new post-crisis record - that's a low benchmark, but it's something.
The percentages shown in the charts now reflect the change between
the number of departures in the last calendar seven days (ET) compared
to the average of two weeks previous to the crisis (last week of
February first week of March, roughly). This will better reflect the
overall changes to each airline, and will moderate over/under reporting
on account of the day of the week the report was created relative to
weekly operational cycles.
