I was just looking on barnstormers.com to check out some of the deals they have, and one of the ads is from JAT!

They're offering ACMI on their DC-10-30 for less than $3,000 US per block hour! Bargain?! Big grin

The postings on behalf og JAT sounds really silly. Its hard to believe that its even true. However, i think that the airline is quite willing on getting rid of the 727s and DC9s, when it gets the opportunity. On the other hand, leasing these aircraft throughout Africa seems to be the best option, since the profits earned from lease are actually higher than the base price of most of these aircraft.

I dont have exact figures, but it is trustworthy. 3.000 USD for a DC10 is an excellent deal. Imagine that 250 people pay 1100 for their return tickets on a typical YYZ-BEG flight.

The generates a revenue of 275.000 CAD. Now subtract the number of hours in a return flight (10 hours multiplied by 2 = 20).

Therefore 20 hours at a rate of 3.000 USD = 90.000 CAD

Thats 185.000 CAD! Nice eh? I know there are airport expenses, and fuel costs, but i doubt that they would cost 185.000 or anything more than that. Well this sounds like a feasible business opportunity as i see it, what do yu people think?

I really think JAT should start charters to North America for this summer. The demand for flights to BEG is overwhelming!
