A few comments:

-Nov is still far from over; seat numbers will probably stay the same, but ask numbers can still change a little due to cancellations, eqt change etc... but probably not much either.

-Ryanair is about 10 times as big as SN, which we were guessing.

-Interesting to look at ratio ask/seat numbers: although 25% "smaller" than LH in terms of seats, BA has higher ask, indicating that BA is more long/haul oriented (which the experts - I'm not one of them - knew of course).

-The question is, though, are the "regional" subsidiaries' numbers included hereabove? Some big players leave the regional operations to their affiliate companies, which may distort this analysis, e.g. Swiss has twice as many seats as SN but proportionnally 25% more ask, Swiss has many more l/h than SN but we also know Swiss affiliates operate at least part of their european flights.
