5148 Miles Flight; Lowest Pr. Seat Cost?

Sat Jul 30, 2011 3:08 pm

Hi!


I’m doing researching a theoretic plan to help me pass the time.. Summer time is slow at the officeJ. I hope you will indulge me and answer a few questions;

Scenario: I would like to run a daily roundtrip route. The route would run in the winter month (26 weeks) every year. I would like to charter (or wet lease) an aircraft to do the job. The flight distance would be approximately. 5,148 miles (or 8,285 km). The aircraft would have 150 – 500 seats, the lower end of that is the best.

Question; witch type of aircraft would most likely give me the lowest pr. seat cost?

I would guess the seat mile costs would be about

A380
773ER
772ER/A332
747
A346
A343

Bigger planes mean lower seat mile costs in general.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

oki, thank you  

Could anyone estimate the pr. hour (aprox 940 hours) charter cost of an A346, A343 or a 747?

The route would be LPA to EZE and LPA to GIG
