Chart for Newbs
« on: July 16, 2011, 12:39:57 AM »
Okay, first draft so please don't flame too much.

This is a chart that I've made that basically tells anyone flying international flights which plane to use.  I can do this for Airbus too..

these are all for ideal conditions with many slots open.  Of course every situation is different.

Good idea! Is that including turn around times?
Cheers,
Denis

range and subjectivity in regards to the turn around times.  I don't feel that it is appropriate to fly more than 5x dailies.

Great work, swiftus!  :)

I always couldn't decide what aircraft type to use on long haul, now things are a lot more simpler.  ;D

Good work, but without the variants it's not so useful  ;)

I think there are too many variables to have a graph tell you with much accuracy which aircraft is "best" to use.  For example, the 757 uses much less fuel than the 767, so depending on gas prices, you may be better off with a 757 with a tech stop than a 767.  Fleet commonality costs come into play as well obviously.  Having the graph may be a useful tool, but unless people understand the rationale behind it, it becomes a decision making device and will have negative consequences for most.
