Is this anecdotal or fact?Northern has been massively boosted by leisure travel, revenue over the past few weeks has been at or above pre-pandemic levels. This is despite passenger numbers being at 85% of pre-covid. Leisure revenues are proving far more lucrative than commuter ones. Focus and resources are going to be firmly on the leisure market this coming spring and summer.
Great news if true, I must admit loadings that I have witnessed on TfW, Northern and EMR Regional seem pretty good on the off peak trains I have been using recently, but has this something to do with timetable cuts and reliability issues of Cross Country and TransPennine Express…?
