A330-200 costs approx $9000 USD per hour and can hold say 16 cars (23 pallets...pallet is 300cm, the average car is 440cm). You want to fly your car from London - Malaga (2.5 hours) and back...so that's about $2800 per car, per return flight. I'm guessing you can get cheaper car rentals in Malaga....

Wow, Bravo... What I wouldn't give to buy you some beers and just ask about your career! Have you ever considered writing a book? I guarantee you you'd sell several hundred copies within days on this forum alone! ...I know a couple agents if that would entice you
I'm guessing then you've also flown the DC-4? If so, how did its flight characteristics compare to the Carvair?
