Is it really more profitable to use larger aircraft than smaller ones.
- you have to fill the small aircraft
- then, what I see with interest.. if two careers have two small aircrafts with higher costs per seat operating, let's take two routes as an example:
Airline A offers one small a/c on the each route C and D = 2 small a/c
Airline B offers one small a/c on the each route C and D = 2 small a/c
So, instead of competing on both routes with two small a/c, which have a higher cost per seat ratio, airline a and b could make an alliance while A offers a bigger aircraft on route C and airline b offers a bigger aircraft on route D. Both codeshare and have saved costs..
, sorry for the confusion I caused
.. but did you get my point? With a clever strategy, meaning instead of competing rather having an alliance, airlines can even save more.. OK
, too much booze.. good night [I tried my best to explain my train of thought]
