For some reason I dont seem to be able to earn a profit on my B777-200ER, but let me first explain why i dont get this right.
The aircraft is assigned to the route EHAM-SAEZ, flies 5 return flights in a week, configured y=196,c=15,f=4 all premium seats.
When i check the route profits from the route management view, it shows average profits between 60K and 100K, loadfactor over all week average is
about 92%, but still it says to be making losses of around 250K a week. I operate about 17 jets, and this is the only one making losses, as shown in the 'my aircraft' view.
I have two triple sevens in my fleet, the one just mentioned, and a newer 300 series. If i compare the weekly estimation given in the aircraft view between those two,
the estimate is minus 320K and minus 180K respectively. But the confusing part is that the latter show me a revenue of about 1M per week, and the former minus 250K.
Then i looked at, in the aircraft view, the numbers stated about the profit of the last day, and the 200ER is always negative -40K, the 300 however is always positive +90K.
Although the 300 series is flying a bit shorter route EHAM-WMKK, and has a lower fuel burn ratio, the loadfactor is about the same. Financial differences in favor of the 200ER is a lower leasing price.
In summary, the 300 has about 40 more seats, higher leasing fees, and some shorter legs to fly, but i dont get how this difference in revenue/profit can be so big?
What am i missing, doing wrong or not understanding, in this situation??
