The Boston route only resumed late May and the number of seats I believe reflects 6 sectors (3 return trips). If pax on the route are primarily MAN originating, it's likely the early return sectors would be very lightly loaded. However, I'm surprised that doesn't appear to have applied to LAX which has a high LF. Is that 5 sectors from VS Scottie? When did TCX resume the route?

SFO with TCX also has a high LF, and personally I was surprised VS dropped that route, leaving it to TCX, while TCX dropped BOS for VS to be the sole operator. I would have thought VS could have benefitted through Virgin Holidays / Fly-Drives of flying into one airport and out from the other but no doubt there were good reasons for what happened.

Many thanks for all the stats Scottie.
