I was re-reading an old Airways magazine I had last night before I went to bed, and came across the Airtran 717 Introduction article. I read through the majority of it, and then close to the end of it, I nearly choked on the numbers they were throwing around about the total operating costs...$330 per hour?!

Did they forget to add an extra "0" at the end, or leave off a "1" at the beginning of the figure?!

I am sure it is a little higher then that, however that might be the price of the aircraft per hour, not including crews, maintenance, fuel, ect. I think a citation cost more an hour then that.

that might be the lowest operating cost when the plane is in the hanger. that's the rent for a parking spot in the hanger.
