I am doing some research and comparison ,for a Uni project, between the BBJ and ACJ to start operations between LTN and MDW.
I found some contradictory results and would really appreciate some help here.
Can anyone help me with the correct data on the minimum runway length needed both for the BBJ1 (737-700) and the ACJ (A319) @ MTOW?
Also, how many people can be seated in each aircraft assuming a seat pitch of 60'? I know that Privatair seats around 48 passengers on the ACJ and 49 on the BBJ, but does anyone knows the seat pitch used?

Thanks very much for your help!
Quoting Corey07850 (Reply 2): In case you're curious, our computer says 8:44 of flight time between EGGW-KMDW at FL410, TAS 430kts, and a 28kt headwind. Figure on $39,000USD to cover fuel, etc for the flight.
What does the 39.000USD include apart from fuel? Is this value refering to all the costs associated with the flight, including operational, crew, etc?

Assuming jet fuel is about $2.17 per gallon, and on a 8.5 hour leg a BBJ would take maybe 44,000 pounds of fuel, and that a gallon of fuel weighs about 6.7 pounds, I get a total of only about $13,000. So the total must include a portion of landing fees, crew costs, any catering, costs at an FBO or whatever, and the rest. I know a charter company out of YYC charges based on a fixed hourly rate, so perhaps the same is done here.
