757 Operating Costs--a Novice Can Answer This One!

Mon May 15, 2000 1:43 pm

I REALLY need an answer for this!

In Airways Magazine, they did an article on Canada 3000. In that article, someone from C3 was quoted as saying something to the effect that "the 757 costs $10,000/day to operate."

Was there a typo in this statement?

Should it be:
1)"The 757 costs $10,000/hr. to operate"
2)"The 757 costs $100,000/day to operate"

Thanks much!
