Last time I leased off you Curse, you stopped the re-lease option after 6 months.
It's because of an AWS "bug". If I lease the aircraft out for one year, the renewed lease is 100% value and not anymore 160% as I want. That's why I cancel all lease renew possibilities.
Once bitten, twice shy... Hence you got the 757 back early due A,B, and C checks
That's the problem of the guy who got the aircraft after you, not mine.
I have used 733s on long thin routes (eg Dublin - Halifax) with success before (in DotM1).
Success oftend ends when people notice the AWS statistics don't include overhead costs like staff, marketing and other things. The aircraft with it's pilots and crew might be posivite, but it's simply not designed to cover it's overhead costs on very long routes.
The 3B1 cannot reach that
Fuel consumption difference is too small to be important, especially with DotM fuel prices.
Oh, and 160% is blatent profiteering - something we know about all to well here in Ireland
It hasn't stopped you from leasing the 752 and the fact my aircraft are leased out very fast - some with very weird configs due to other nice customers or without C-Check or with 20% condition - show me that the way I do my business is not wrong.
Fortunately my airline has a good basement, something Ireland is missing. I think that's why my airline still is in a very good shape and the C-Check you haven't done brought me down
