When will people realise that load factor is simply a measure of the seats occupied on departure? Nothing more, nothing less. What we donít know is what Rex collected from these passengers, and that is probably a piece of information tightly held by Rex.

They are pretty much certainly running at a loss. But THAT is irrelevant unless you know whether they have budgeted to run at a loss as they build a fleet and penetrate the market. They seem to be basically sold out this weekend, so unless they were wildly optimistic regarding when they were going to turn a profit, things are probably going OK.

REX jet cracks 80% loads at over 140 average across both Y and J today across all flights
3 more frames due this year....
Perhaps
MEL PER or MEL ADL PER
SYD and or MEL CNS
And likely more to OOL as the current flights are pretty much full

Starting to throw some very solid numbers

Who calls aircraft "frames" anyway. Hmmm, well nobody. Well, except about 2 other accounts on this site all with very similar traits, one being the ever annoying BNEA320. I won't embarrass the member with the other one, I think they are doing a good enough at that job themselves.

It would appear likely you are a pilot also digging deeper. Pretty poor if you ask me talking down terms and conditions of this (well...err...our) profession above. You referred to me as someone who needs to wake up, get with the times and expect cuts to my terms and conditions (aside Covid never seen it in my current employer in 14 years). You are the type that would sell your ar$e off to take my job flying the bigger toys at a pay cut, boy have we all worked with those types before. Looking at post history, well I think I know where you work, and my god I am not surprised one bit. Enjoy playing off against other pilots for new "frames" buddy in your little world, sounds like your right in your zone, going absolutely nowhere.

They will struggle with their PER-SY and more into SY. That pesky issue of slots ainít going away.

Pretty sure both Rex and Bonza will be mandated slots in the next round, that's if Bonza is up and running. The ACCC has already started to get involved so looks like VA and QF will have to relinquish some at some point, especially any unused slots held. Remember that slots are revisited on a yearly basis and redistributed on need, Covid had put a hold on normal redistribution as they chose not to change slot allocations until things settle down, which means next years slots will have to be assigned fairly to new entrants.

Have to remember that Rex was heavily involved in securing access for regional NSW routes into Sydney, they are very familiar with how the slot system works.

So PoppaJoe
All your REX bashing 6 months ago, wishing and hoping they would fail along with all your predictions of falling loads after the holidays, loads on the triangle midweek of 50 etc. None have materialised ......
So now you want to attack the messenger for calling you out on your inaccuracies ?
You totally don't have any idea where I work
REX would be a great place to have a go to advance however for a short route to PIC as they expand, no I don't drive for REX

It's time to accept that REX jet will
Be profitable by November
Have 9 birds by Christmas
Have 25-30 by mid 24
Continue to take loads from QF/JQ and VA

Even if the above happens (no gurantee it will) then really Rex will only grow to be slightly larger than Tigerair. Considering they never really cut into QF or VA mainline loads then Rex is just going after a niche market.

Btw if QF or VA think Rex jet is getting too big for their boots, then they could use capacity to hurt Rex where they really make their money, government subsidised and monopoly Rex turboprop routes.

And I also would take note of the Rex share price. Absolutely flatlining for the last 3 weeks as youíve been posting those selective load factor stats.

No Iím calling you out for having multiple accounts (aka no credibility) talking to yourself at numerous times. You do realise mods can see your IP address when you have multiple accounts talking to yourself in multiple threads? I wonít be replying to you any further with your multiple personalities.

Someone should probably call him out on his fabricated loads for Virgin to suit his narrative too

Please Poppa, report me to the moderators....z
I'm not BNEA320 or any of his aliases, nor do I have multiple accounts
Perhaps there are just a few out there that agree with what I have posted along with plenty that agree with you

I only started defending REX when you were posting very negative comments about loads and the negative posts about Bonza

I too have posted negative regarding QF/JQ and to a lesser extent VA
Mainly about protecting their duopoly and the track record of bullying newcomers into bankruptcy, then getting back to pulling back capacity to improve yields
Only winners here are the shareholders, as always
Then the inevitable trail of destruction for the employees that worked on the collapsed airlines

I truly hope REX establishes themselves as a true third independent alternative and keep the bastards honest

Only ever quoted VA once in reply to another post rubbishing REX
I posted REX and similar VA flights and their numbers that were accurate at the time, it was from the day prior however and seats likely firmed up on both between my post and their respective departures

Busy with other stuff ATM
Aren't FY results due today?
My bet is a loss, probably a big one, but hopefully with guidance regarding over the past 2-3 months showing much better results
I'd guess props are doing very well with jets dragging figures down, remembering jets were grounded for a few months and restart to March was slow
