I did look at the data. He purposely held back some information. And yes, I do understand why he wouldn't want to divulge any secrets. Personally I tested the 777 in all its forms across many flight ranges and found them to be underperforming.
Well, if you look at my airline, you can see very well, that I only operate A33X/34X and B77X, despite a very recently started group of EMB 17X/19X aircraft, and have very good financial results. Thus these aircraft cannot be that bad... So either something was different about your airline, or you just didn't do it right. (as I said in the other topic, a thing of knowing how to play or not)
As Peanutoil is in my alliance I did share some more info with him about my aircraft so he can confirm that my aircraft produce decent results. And I am not eager to give you more data than I gave out publicly because I know I do not have to justify myself infront of you.
I will dare say that. Here is why. When I ran my experiments, I ran standard seating and premium seating. I ran them on 4000nm up to 7000nm routes. I changed pricing around. In the end, 80% of the planes were losing money weekly. I hade more than 6 777s with 70% or higher lf but losing over 300,000 to 800,000 per week.
I also dare say it because you didn't release all of your data. You can not just publish results from two examples and declare it a success.
In every experiment there will always be outliers. Your examples were just those.
My B777 run in all standard configs (as you could see from the other topic) and fly routes between 3000NM (e.g. LHR-JFK) and 6600NM (LHR-HNL) and they almost all make great profits (some only make few but a number around the 0 makes losses)
You say your problem yourself: you had 6
of them, which is either seriously stupid or just completely random. You can't do a 7-day-rotation which is the ONLY way of operating profitable over 3500NM and thus you cannot fly all day giving you a serious impact in LFs. Also your fleet is very small which drives commonality cost up MASSIVELY when I got rid of my 2x B733 in the beginning of MT#5 I halved my commonality cost from 22.5M/mth to just 11.5M/mth.
So what killed you was a bad scheduling method and a crappy fleet management in regard to fleet types, and before you say you wanted to check the new commonality system (or the tweaks made), I don't believe you. Same as I didn't believe DanDantes when he quit DotM#1 because of "real life commitments" while he was just too lazy to reschedule 200 30yr old DC-9.
Anyhow, your liability shall not be out topic, neither shall be DanDantes. I just repeat that somehow my aircraft make profit, while yours don't (or didn't). So either of us used the wrong strategies and I am surely not the one...
And if with 70% LFs you lost money, you just failed seriously, because some of my aircraft with 55% make more than 500k/week!
