Delta Air Lines  (NYSE:DAL) Passenger Load Factor % Explanation

Passenger Load Factor % measures the percentage of available seating capacity that has been filled by passengers. A high load factor indicates that the airline has sold most available seats and is preferred over a low load factor.

The load factor helps investors and management determine how well an airline generates sales, covers expenses, and remains profitable. Since airlines have thin profit margins and high costs, a high load factor is essential to an airline’s success.

Another measurement of load factor is Breakeven Load Factor %, which is often used in strategic planning for airlines. An airline wishing to attract low-budget customers with cheap tickets will likely need a higher load factor to stay profitable and thus, may need aircraft designed to carry more passengers. The airline could also pursue high-quality service and customer experiences by charging more per ticket and offering fewer seats.
