so, I just got my first longhaul plane, a 777-200. I thought I would fly from Honolulu to Johannesburg, the demand is 300 pax per day. The round trip takes just more than two and a half days, so with one plane, I can only fly two times to Johannesburg.
I know everyone's gonna say I should increase frequency, I know, I will do that, but I can't find any used 777-200s on the used market, but I will eventually.
However, I am worried that even when I fill the demand by using three planes, I am not gonna make enough profit.
By the way, I am flying via an australian airport as my plane's range is only 5600 nm and the total distance is 10000 nm. My route image is still low, about 50.
Also, the first leg has a total of 93 pax on board and the return leg has 146. They both depart at reasonable hours, why can that be? Do the departing time at the tech stop count? It can' be, can it?
