Quote from Simply Flying

Heavily booked planes are helping to account for the bumper revenue. Rex's load factor was at 86% across the entire domestic network. Although the airline did not provide a breakdown between its jet-operated trunk routes and its turboprop-operated routes, Simple Flying understands the average load factor on Rex's turboprop services averaged between 70% and 75% in July, with loads substantially higher on the jet services

I'd be trusting this over Jo sitting in his cockpit counting heads

I think you missed the bit about the first three weeks being full across the board? I donít think anyone said Rexy had light numbers across early July.

Peak season is over now buddy. Things back to normal.

Here is an idea for you seeing how far off the charts your logic is. Join one of the above subscription platforms and report back to us on here how things look, say, this morning? All looks pretty shit to me. Thatís right, you donít want to report single figure numbers back to us cause your precious little Rexy is doing so shit?

So Rex are going to expand because of a bumber school holiday period, if you can’t fill a plane then you never will. But seeing MFM is not on the registry I’m going to take that and slap it on my AC.

This is what I can see on Nexus and ExpertF this morning. These numbers are pulled from the GDS they are concrete. Give or take a few seats below as I quickly counted.

Cracking loads, bring on more 73s as they’re needed asap. The reality is as mentioned earlier Australia just can’t support further airlines we just don’t have the population.

They are on a winner! Not!

Their annual results are due out soon. That will be an eye opener you would think.

Notice their share price went up 16+% in two days on about $320K of shares. For a market capitalisation increase of about $24M. Doesn't make sense.

Someone from the Rex social media team must be reading a lot of PPRuNe - their social media is bombarding photos of 737 VH-MFM 😂

I'm surprised Rex didn't ask for a rego out of the unallocated Rs, like RXU.

What a depressing thread. Why are experts posting here, rather than actually managing/starting airlines themselves.

When it comes to Rex, it's the owners money, it's his train set. He can do what he damn well wants. Same for Bonza, same for XYZ.

It seems many of you long for the days when it was "don't talk to me, cause I'm a pilot".

I'm so glad I've left the commercial aviation scene behind me.

You do realise that REX is a publicly listed company, not private.

Because we all know Australia does not have the population to support more airlines.

Loads yesterday and today (noting fewer flights today) are not bad. Certainly into the profitable range. Notably they are now able to get bums on J seats - that takes a lot of pressure off yield.

Not exactly a public train set, more correctly the shareholders' train set.

However, when you have five people holding 51 percent of the stock, well, nothing cobbled together by management is likely to fail to get majority shareholder approval (executive remuneration aside). KHL has routinely thumbed his nose at basic corporate governance principles for publicly listed companies since the get-go, starting with his dual role as Chairman and Chief Executive.

Affirm.

A few at the lower 100 end however many in the 150-170.

However no flights from Melbourne after 1230. In fact today I canít see more than about 15 flights. They have about 1% of the Jet capacity today.

20 is an interesting number. It's how many flight crew resignations Rex received this week. One being from the management team!

Donít forget the data is only useful post departure. I can see on KVS ahead of time on Virgin, the free capacity, Rex donít provide such access they have more basic systems.

Those two Virgin flights have 5 and 9 seats available in Y. I can only see passenger to date checked in for Rex. You need to wait for post departure and revisit.
