Are all ultra long haul routes unprofitable?
« on: June 28, 2010, 01:28:48 AM »
Hey guys. I started a couple of 8500nm-10000nm routes that have high demand using the B77L, but I noticed that none of the planes are making any profit! Is this the case with everyone? I think the only way to make a profit out of them is only if you own the plane, and that would only give you about $200k profit.  :-\

Thanks for posting this. I was looking to do some "ultra long haul" routes my self, and was  wondering if they where profitable before starting them.

They are real tough to make money on. Need strong C/J to make it work. Y is 80% LF at best.


My LRs make around 500k a week. They are owned as well.

remember, you will only get 4 flights a week in ultra long flights.  How much money can be made when you are only sitting 8 butts in a seat in an entire week?

The trick here is to only include 1 or 2 ultra-long range routes and combine them with shorter routes to balance the usage of the aircraft. If you run a 7 day rotational schedule, that is  :)

yeah i just figurred that out too. if my planes are doing solely ULH routes, then thats 4 flights a week, making about 900k. lease itself is about 700k. so with multiple flights and only 1 ULH route per plane, i'm making about 2mil! good good idea  ;)
