Great Lakes has been shrinking a lot. Take a look at the most recent traffic numbers. Number of passengers down 62.2 percent. The benefit, however, is a higher load factor (way up to 55.7 percent) and a huge increase in unit revenue (up an incredible 64.1 percent). But the airline only flew 557 people every day in July. That’s not a lot. What do you think is the future for Great Lakes… if there is one?
