Skyservice has announced that they will introduce B763 into their fleet spring '05. Now, I was speaking to the COO of this airline and he stated that leasing such a bird runs in the vicinity of 500+k a month or something like that, but I may be off some. Here's the Q. Would it be feasable to lease some low time MD11s instead??? I know that mx would PROBABLY be more for the tri-jet, as well as fuel, but would the lease rate be a large enough discount than that of the 76 to make it feasable???

All comments appreciated and sorry for such a long post  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

My guess is that since the 763 has less capacity it more flexibility and use in the SSV fleet. The 333 was too large and SSV only operated 1 -- not very efficient. The M11 has the same capacity as the 333 and would suffer the same over-capacity and inflexiblity.

The 767 would also have commonality with the 757 fleet.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

I'll have to agree with Neil. Skyservice had up to three A330's in the fleet (I believe) and only have one right now. The aircraft is too large for the operation as it is today, and the 767 provides in my opinion greater flexibility, as well as a relatively modern and efficient aircraft. The MD-11 not only is too large but would be less economical to operate than the A330, and I wouldn't be surprised if the greater operating costs were not negated by the lower lease or acquisition costs.

The 767 seems to be the ideal aircraft for missions between North America and Europe, and also provide flexibility to domestic and southern flights requiring greater capacity than the narrow-body Airbus fleet.

Just a note, it seems as though the sole A330 C-FRAV might stay in the fleet, and the size of the 767 fleet will therefore be influenced by whether or not the A330 stays.

By the way, how did you get to talk to the COO?
