Compiling and updating models takes up a large part of every day. But there is beauty in data. Here are some tidbits from the models compiling US airline fleets and the daily data from TSA.

  • Top 40 Busiest aircraft (by tail number).

  • Top 25 US domestic markets – flights by airline.

  • The industry averages 4.07 flights per aircraft/day, but the trend is growing and for 4/30/24 the average is 4.96

  • Following on to the MAX 8 item above, the next chart shows the historic moment when Southwest flew more MAX 8 flights than -700NG flights. Historic for the airline but worrying for its fleet planners.

  • Here are trends showing flight activity among single-aisles. The red marker shows the high point over the period. The model that catches our attention is the A221 (A220-100). Only Delta operates that model in the market and that trend is odd.  Engine swaps to A223, perhaps?

  • One of our favorite subjects is MoM models. Here are two charts highlighting this aircraft type.
