Transcontinental Aircraft

Fri Mar 16, 2007 9:40 am

Alright everyone I'm trying to put together a portfolio for a project that lists the narrowbody jets able to perform US transcontinental flights.

The aircraft I am focusing on are the A319, 737, and the E-190. (Other suggestions would be appreciated, but again this is for narrowbosy only.)

I have been reading every website possible but they all seem to differ a little bit when it comes to the facts.

Could any of you please help with the following questions?

1. Which of these aircraft would have the least amount of trouble flying non-stop from SAN-JFK with a full load of passengers?

2. What are the current prices for each jet? (Estimate is ok)

3. Which jet currently has the highest CASM?

And since you guys are the best around, any other information or opinions (yes opinions, this is your chance to convince me with any info or insights as to which one is best and why) would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,

Acjflyer

Well, the 737 has the highest MTOW out of those and the highest payload, so thats your best bet as far as payload. are you focusing on the A32X family, or just the A319?

The A320 family in general, although I do know that the A320 struggles on flights heading West when they have strong head winds. For example: Jet Blue having to refuel on their JFK-LGB flights at times.
