The plane acquisition cost would not be the primary factor in estimating the breakeven point on this. The fixed costs for owning 2 767s will be huge (hiring pilots, f/a's, airport costs, operating costs, fuel costs, etc). All of those costs are baked into charter operations, so the financial break even will be much longer than 2.5 years. However, the Patriots will also have a great recruiting & retention tool for players, better rested players, etc, so I'm sure those non-financial considerations were taken into account.
