Many thanks for all the stats Scottie.
I wonder if the yield is weak, even with good numbers? Its also worth bearing in mind that last summer was incredibly competitive into the bay area from London. BA were flying LGW-OAK, LHR-SJC in addition to a daily A380 and 747 on LHR-SFO. Norwegian also offered SFO and OAK, so it was a competitive market. I realise London and Manchester aren't the same cities, but The Bay Area was particularly fierce.
