The 319’s economics, even in all Y config, aren’t even remotely close to newer 737-800’s when it is all said and done. Fuel burn, maintenance cost, daily utilization, seat capacity, amongst other things, conspire against that airframe, even with a zero capital cost. It don’t work...
You really think narrow body Rouge has lower stage length adjusted unit costs than WJ, let alone Swoop? Man, would I like to play poker with you.
Ever heard of the “awe shucks” strategy?
If Rouge’s 50+ tail sub fleet has costs lower than WJ’s, thereby driving down AC’s consolidated unit costs, man, do they have a serious problem elsewhere in their system. Something is causing those unit costs to be sky high, even with an ASL that is now double WJ’s.

Under what conditions are you comparing the aircrafts? What stage lengths? Which Markets? Are the aircraft being leased or financed??
Your assumptions are based on perfect conditions. What if the airplane is half full? Yes, the spread between Marginal revenue & marginal cost per seat exceeds that of a 319, but will swoop be able to stimulate enough demand to fill the seats? Open questions that have yet to be answered.
You speak like an airline geek, but have very little understanding of basic business principles.
BTW, stop comparing wj & Ac. Both have very different businesses.
WJA is going through some hard times now & the market believes it. Made a few bucks shorting the stock recently... maybe more downside to go.
You clearly have no idea who Jimbo737 really is then - and not knowing tells me you’re not all that versed in the industry.
