Does anyone have a breakdown or know the average operating cost of the DC9 aircraft?

From an article by "Detroit Free Press":

It costs Northwest 7.2 cents in operating cost to fly 1 mile per passenger on a 100-seat DC9-30, according to Eclat Consulting, an airline consultancy. That compares to the average of 6.5 cents U.S. carriers spend on flying 108-seat Boeing 737-500s, according to Eclat Consulting.

That should give you a general idea of the DC9's average operating costs. Also check out this useful, if dated, operating cost reference...

I think 7.2 cents per ASM is a little low. That would be 30% below NW's average ASM cost of 10.23 cents as reported in their March 6, 2004 quarterly report.
