I’ve been contacting with many companies in order to know the wet/dry leasing cost for a Boeing 777 and nobody answered me. This information is a Key Factor for my research project I needed at any cost. I faked to be a company to obaint it but it still not working. Could someone tell me where I can find this information?
Not surprised, I would think that anyone in a position to provide that information would have a pretty solid understanding of who the players and prospects were in the industry.
I work in the heavy road trans industry here in Aust.anyone faking that they were in my industry and seeking that type of info would have a challenging time.
If you are doing a credible research project at a recognised institution, you would be well advised to be up front about what you are doing, it will likely lead to better results and a real but possibly intangible byproduct is you will be making contacts that could benefit you later in your career.

I concur. A request on official letterhead from a recognized institution explaining why you'd like that information (and possibly promising not to divulge your source) will get you far more attention than an attempt to "fake" it.
Old fashioned letters in the mail are still good for something.

Sure, In my first emails I explained that the information I requested was for a research study of my degree, describing specifically the purposes of it an so on however it didn't work, that's why I decided to do that thing. I apreciate your advices, but I should be mature enough to know it in advance. As well, I added many people of the aviation industry using likeding, doing the same thing as I mentioned before (the real purpose) but people shouldn't have time because I haven't obtained many answers.

In essence you're asking "how long is a piece of string", and you need to be much more specific, e.g. "10 x 77W, including 21 x -110B engines, 8 years".
I am not surprised you are having little luck approaching the operators, this is highly sensitive information which you are basically trying to put in the public domain. You may have more luck trying to approach one or more of the leasing companies, but you will need to be up-front about who you are, what you are trying to do, and why you do it. Trying to fake your way to get the information is never going to wash; they'll suss you out long before you even get close to someone who has the answers you're looking for.
