Data analysis of Otto - Week 48, 2017

05.12.2017 - 16:56

Being inspired by your positive feedback on last weeks statistic that I created for Idlewild, I felt it would be interesting to see how a new world is doing in comparison. To better show the dynamic growth of the world, I have added a comparative value (the previous week) to the graphs. It is quite impressive to see the explosive growth in just one week. Now is your last chance to get to the top of the stats, so push hard.




The competition is fierce with more than 600 enterprises fighting for passengers and cargo.


As a general explanation. The columns in the back with light color are the previous week's values. In orange you will see capacity, while blue is the actual amount transported. For cargo only airlines there are some grey columns, in comparison with the overall cargo transported (including i.e. belly cargo).




Europe has currently the lead, while North America and Asia are almost level. And Europe should fill up all that capacity.


The market share graph in form of a donut shows on the outer ring the current week's values, while the inner ring is the comparative graph with last weeks percentages.




While there are already 18 alliances, the vast majority of airlines is still independent. We will certainly see a consolidation phase here soon enough. And the independent airlines even increased their market share.




In terms of load factor it seems that alliance members have an advantage over independent airlines. Interesting fact.




Adler1183 is already flying high and alone like a maverick. The load factors of some are a bit scary and I'm curious to figure out if they manage to fill up their seats or if a low profitability will curb their growth in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
















There are 29 airlines trying their luck with a cargo only operation. The belly cargo is already grabbing more than half of the capacity making the cargo flyers work for their money.




The top cargo players are still a bit closer together than their counterparts in the passenger field. Let's see how it turns out for them.




North America seems to be the home for cargo airlines. Unfortunately this graph doesn't show where cargo is transported, but only where the airlines have their home state.



Data analysis of Idlewild - November 2017

28.11.2017 - 04:48

Having been inspired by this post here, I felt it is time to round up the stats for Idlewild and show how we compare.


So here is the first comprehensive analysis of statistics of Idlewild. I'm quite impressed by the numbers. Let me know how you like that.




It is impressive to see that we have transported 137 million passengers in the previous week. Also, there are only 8 pure cargo airlines with quite a low average load factor. Passenger airlines fly much more efficient with an average load factor of 84%.




Asia is clearly the dominant market, with North America and Europe having a sizeable share in the global traffic. Load factor is not very high in Asia though.




Diamond Star is the clearly dominant alliance on this world with a market share of 47%. And it is interesting to note, that more than a fifth of the passengers fly with independent airlines.




Although Diamond Star has by far the most passengers, their average load is not too high compared to other alliances.




The top players are clearly ranked and have a clear winner with mickkey95 and his Romanian airlines. It is also interesting to see the varying load factors that players get.



FentlAir clearly sets the mark here in Asia as an independent.




While Diamond Star almost takes half of the North American traffic, the Blue Sky Alliance is also "at home" in North America.




Passengers can hardly avoid flying with Diamond Star when entering a plane in Europe as they occupy two thirds of the market.




In South America the situation is even more dramatic, but probably also due to the lack of other alliances being present on that continent.




The situation in Africa is pretty much the same as in South America.




Oceania is the home of One Sky Alliance and they have the biggest share here, although they don't dominate the market, as Diamond Star and All World Alliance fight for the second place here.




Cargo is a bit tricky to show by continent, as it only shows the cargo flown by home country of the airline. Since cargo can be flown world wide, this graph is a bit flawed.




No surprise to see the same big players in the cargo market. There are only five players trying their luck with a pure cargo airline.
