I work for American. When the company was flying the Dash-8 turboprop from Phoenix you Guaymas, the load factor was less than 30%. The ticket price was high enough that the flight broke even. When the turboprops went away and the 50 seat jets took over the route, it lost money on almost every flight. I enquired about the possibility of that rout starting up again and was basically told "not a chance."
