Hey
What does it cost to operate a flight? For example, we can take a full 744 flight FRA-NRT. What are the major fees that the airline has to pay (departing/landing, fuel .etc)? Am I right if I say that that fuel for this flight would be about 50 000$?

And does it cost the same for a 744 with 390 pax and a 744 with 200 pax to LAND at one airport?

Thanks, bye  Smile

At MUC, fees are calculated based on MTOW, passengers on board and emission rating. I don't know if this is the same at other airports.

Similar to overflying charges, landing fees are often connected to the MTOW of the aircraft. So it does not make a difference if you have 1 or 400 souls on board the same aircraft. A difference might be the passenger handling, which can be a flat fee regardless of the number of pax, a fee per passenger or a mixture of that (even though I am not familiar with the pax business  Wink )

Typically, airlines pay a landing fee based on maximum take-off weight or on occasion maximum landing weight, depending on the airport's use and lease agreement. The number of passengers onboard is insignificant for the landing fee. Many airports also charge a per passenger fee and/or a terminal rental fee (based on square feet and type of facility, hold room, ticket counters, ops space, baggage makeup, etc.).

747-400 burns 500 gal per engine- at FL-350 (2000 gal per hour) so I'm told. If its a NWA flight factor in minimum wage for the crew, and catering done by Sams Club.
