Agreed. The current formula is outdated.At what point do constant downgrades become a backdoor pay cut? At what point do we have to reevaluate the traffic strata if less airplanes with more people on them is the new normal?
For instance, It was based on an aviation industry that featured a lot more air taxi (commuter turboprops) which actually added to the complexity factor because of fleet mix.
Those have since been replaced with bigger regional jets which count as air carriers which actually lower the traffic count index at a lot of Core 30 airports.
