Just a quick question about fleet commonality.
I currently have a fleet of 7 MD-87s with 4 more on order. These are serving me well, but some of the routes I fly could be even more profitable with the extra capacity offered by an MD-88. If I order a few MD-88s (I need 4 max at the moment) to take on these heavier routes will I be hit in the neck with increased fleet commonality costs? Or will it be okay because they are both MD-80 fleet group?
Thanks for your help,
