|Quoting fly828 (Thread starter):|
I am always wondering, nowadays people measure operation cost largely by looking at the fuel cost on different planes, however, has anyone factor in the acquisition cost of a new plane will be almost double or even more than it was for a similar capable plane, airlines save the fuel cost a bit but the depreciation cost on new planes will be much much more.
let's say a 777 serves the similar route as MD-11, sure the triple seven will be more economical, but the depreciation cost on new 777 will be possibly doubling the depreciation cost on a well maintained MD-11.
Am I thinking wrong?
