While any discussion is difficult without access to the yield QF, VA, TT and JQ are obtaining from each passenger or overall per flight, IATA"s chief economist Mr Pearce has been quoted this week as stating that airlines in the Asia Pacific need to fill 64.2 per cent of seats to break even.

No two airlines' costs (and revenue) will be identical but my perception is that for all of Australia's 'big four' airlines, each needs to fill (on average) 75 to 80 per cent of seats to have a chance of breaking even or turning a net profit after all costs such as depreciation.

The international and domestic divisions of the three of the four that fly internationally might also differ a bit.

What percentage of seats do you believe each needs to have occupied to at least break even annually?
