DC10 gas guzzler???
One has failed to do the maths here..........
A340-300x New lease 5yrs - Lease 2mil per month DC10-30 Lease 800K per month
Fuel 6700kg/hr Fuel 6990 kg/ hr 290KG differnce
Pax 270/20/8 Pax 260/32/10
Range 6900 Range 4900nm
So if any route is within 4900nm, DC10 beats A340 hands down, A340 yearly lease 24mil, DC10 yearly lease 9.60mil (differnence of 14mil). DC10 C check 3mil, A340 600K, so Dc10 beats A340 by nearly 11mil per year. Keep the DC10 above 90% condition and you have a gem.
