A MAXjet Follow-Up

A couple of months ago I wrote a little blurb suggesting that MAXjet was not selling a particularly large number of seats (I estimated they were selling 40something percent of available seats).  I thought I'd give a bit of an update:  the company put out a release saying that March their load factor (their percentage of seats sold) was about 50% (so I probably wasn't that far off in February.  Yay me.) and that their April and May load factors will be in the 70% range.  They've done a fair amount of discounting, and these numbers don't include their newly introduced flights to Washington, but it's a good sign for them, nonetheless.
