Airlines report very detailed monthly stats route ridership and revenue via the USDOT
including reporting a 10% ticket sample (and private providers who clean it up). It is arguably more detail than Amtrak ever published, but the Airlines go along with it because while they hate reporting their own numbers, they love seeing everyone elses, and this kind of visibility keeps the industry very competitive (it is pro-consumer).

" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; are disappointing because you no longer see route-level ticket revenue (and no longer see sleeper vs coach breakouts). This means, among other blindspots, that in the route revenue pages, you can no longer see which routes are profitable from ticket revenues alone (eg. the Virginia ones) versus which ones rely on state subsidies to be profitable (eg Vermonter and Carolinian), (the corollary is that you can no longer back out what each State sponsor is paying per route).
