Costs To Fly A Plane

Thu Mar 30, 2000 1:22 am

Hello there!

For part of my leisure and tourism module for my A-Level Geography, I have to study the expansion of foreign tourism. As part of my work I would like to incorporate how the growth of air travel has influenced it. I was wondering if anybody has any information on the costs for running and aircraft. e.g. a route such as LHR-LAX or MAN-MCO etc. etc., the type pf aircraft used, number PAX erquired to break-even, number of crew, fuel and how much this would all cost. Any info with regards to the subject would be useful.

Thanks in Advance

all I know at the moment is that the cost of a B744 one-way LHR-LAX flight is about $100.000 in fuel costs and landing fees.
