June 2009 Monthly Traffic Numbers

Last Updated Jul 9, 2009 10:02 AM EDT

June was a mixed bag for airline traffic. Everyone except Allegiant saw capacity decline, and for many airlines, that allowed them to increase load factors further. Allegiant saw a load factor decrease for the first time since they started posting 90 percent+ loads, I believe. JetBlue saw the largest load factor decline, but it also reduced capacity less than everyone else. Click for definitions.
