The Yieldr Air Flights dashboards are your first look into the performance of your inventory. It’s designed to quickly spot challenges and opportunities, now and in the upcoming months. A prerequisite for the Flights dashboards is having your flight performance data in Yieldr Air. You can accomplish this by using our direct integration with AirRM, sending your data to the Yieldr API or using our SFTP solution.
Three Levels of Analysis
In order to quickly identify challenges and opportunities, the dashboards have three levels of analysis: market groups, routes and flights. This enables you to quickly jump between taking a broad overview, reporting topline results and singling out exactly which flights need to sell more of its tickets fast.
Let’s start at the lowest level of abstraction: a single flight view. For every flight, the table displays the flight number, the date of departure and the time of departure. The flights displayed are from a selected route (more on that later) and for a selected month. For each flight the Revenue, Load Factor and RASM is visualized.
The revenue indicator actually gives information on three data points and their relation: current performance, objective and progress.
The number right from the bar shows the current actual revenue performance of the flight. The little circle expresses the revenue objective for this flight. The position of the circle expresses how close to your objective you are. If you’re under target, the line will be colored red. As soon as your objective is met, the line will turn green.
The Load Factor bars work similarly, but add forecasted information as well. Again, the number to the right of the bar shows the current actual Load Factor performance (Sold seats / Capacity * 100). The solid color of the bar expresses the actual current performance as well. The transparent colored portion of the bar visualizes the Forecasted Load Factor. The little circle shows the Load Factor objective for this flight. The position of the circle expresses how close to your objective you are. If your current Load Factor performance is past the objective, your bar will turn green. If your current Load Factor is still behind the objective, but your forecast is above the objective (you are forecasted to meet your objective), the bar will be blue. If your forecast is below your objective (you are forecasted not to meet your objective), the line will be colored red.
Finally, your RASM (Revenue per Available Seat Mile) will be expressed simply by a value in the table. Depending on whether you work with Kilometers or Miles, you can change the metric from RASM to RASK under your Airline Settings.
To analyze the audience that is interested in a particular Flight, click on 'View Audience'. This will display the audience analytics based on the selected Flight.
Routes organizes flights by pairs of origin and destination. These routes are uni-directional (returns are not included). Support for bi-directional routes is coming soon. Routes are aggregated per month. The metrics are exactly the same as those under flights. The only difference is that these are aggregates of numerous flights, instead of a single flight.
It’s easy to filter your routes based on either origin, destination, Load Factor or distance from your Load Factor Objective. You can do all this through the query builder on top of the routes dashboard.
The “Forecast is at least … % lower than objective is a handy filter to single out routes that are expected to perform behind target at the end of the month.
From your routes dashboard you can click on a specific route to analyze all flights under this route. To analyze the audience that is interested in a particular route, click on 'View Audience'. This will display the audience analytics based on the selected route.
It’s possible to group your routes into Market Groups. These groups should really match your internal business logic, analysis flow and/or reporting structure. Creating market groups allows you to quickly see results of flights from a specific hub, country, type of of flight or whatever logic you typically use.
The “+ Add Market Group” will allow you to create your market groups. You can give each a name, search for routes based on origin and/or destination, select routes and add them to your Market Group.
Finally, you can inspect the added routes under “Added Routes”.
Hit save and you have just created your first Market Group.
Once created, the Market Group dashboard works similarly as the Routes and Flights Dashboards. From Market Groups you can click through to inspect the routes that make up that specific Market Group.
Go ahead and start identifying those flights that require you attention and allow you to start making more revenue.
