Yes, Ive flown that many times...their service to Polynesians is horrendous once we get to Fiji and try to transfer elsewhere.


Also, isnt there an LAX-Apia flight too?

That shows where people are actually flying to and from.

Does anyone have good O&D data for Int'l and Domestic?

Maybe Justme

There may have been an Apia flight in the past, but everything on Air Pacific goes through Nadi today.

I've never flown them, but have flown Air Tahiti Nui to Papeete (and then on to Auckland). We had great service on them.

It depends on the route and the yields of said route.

If we are talking about a route like Houston-Amsterdam (which is the single highest yielding US-Europe route on a per passenger basis even if it isnt the largest local market), the airline can profit $350,000 on one flight alone including cargo.

However if we are talking about a route like say, Chicago-Delhi when American was flying it, everytime the plane took off American lost around $35,000-$50,000. When Delta tried to fly Atlanta-Shanghai, that was another big loser.

It can vary anywhere between there.

Pretty much. LAX is the crossroads for Polynesians all over the world--we all go through LAX at some point

Actually now that I think of it, Air New Zealand had the direct flight LAX-Apia, but they cancelled it a couple of years ago.

And even if it was on crappy service, any time you are flying to Polynesia, it is a GREAT trip!

For the traffic demand to an airport and how busy it is, yes. But O&D doesn't compensate a travelers choice in destinations, IE a traveler from Albuquerque could only dream of a direct flight to Rio and to get there would have to make many stops and layovers.

For international depth, it wont help as much. IE, Denver, likely one of the higher O&D markets in the US but very limited international destinations and not as much market demand to attract foreign airliners. By the same token, Toronto has service to nearly every major city on Earth, direct route, and top notch quality service but it's O&D numbers would trail some of the less international airports.

For me, something majestic about the foreign flight birds parking at our concourse and the link to as many international destinations.
