ladies and gentleman we are approaching $1000, please fasten your seatbelts and return your traytable and seatback to the intended upright position  ;)

Hide your reminder until it reach 1500 :laugh:

I would have, but it seems people who had calculated their break even fuel at $1400 had issues at sub $1000  ;)

We'll it's up there now and I'm professionally buggered at this point. My entire 737-700 fleet went from making tiding profits to every airplane losing money, even with load factors in the 80's. Looks like I'll be out of this game in a week.

Yes the 737-700 not such an economical plane in these days even in 2011, that's why you see them being scrapped already.

To save money, has anyone tried to set wages to recommended levels? How did this affect your CI and other ratings if it will lower all employees salaries?

Just curious.

It's kinda bullchips that it doesn't work. 73G's are perfectly capable of making a profit in reality, and will despite any increases in the price of fuel within reason. If Delta can fly with crappy old DC-9's in this day and age, a CFM56 will make a profit.

I can understand why you feel cheated, but there is no real advancement from the 737-300 in terms of raw figures as 125 seats is becoming too small for later periods on 2.5tns/hr. Many operators are replacing them with 737-800s, especially for the longer routes where they become more economical.

SWA use them so successfully because they have more seats in their config and are mostly using them on routes around 400nm, with exceptions. In fact I am surprised that Boeing even included the 737-7 in the 737max lineup, if it was not for SWA. Then again I was also expecting them to push for a 199/200 maximum seat and a 757-200 size aircraft rather than keep NG fuselage lengths but they got lazy and ignored the stakeholders to go for a quick certification.

Flying them short can reduce the effect of fuel spike. Again, as Alex said, 737-700 isn't that economical compared with A320 series.

The CI will be crash, but the effect is depending on your airline status and competition. I heard that it will drop like ~30 points, so if you don't have competitors that will bite up your airline when CI drops, you may try doing it. 8) (Of course I won't be responsible for any consequences.)  :laugh:

I run at recommended wage levels, i dont think my ci has 'crashed'   ;)

of course reducing wage levels from higher ones doesnt help, it will kill morale, although the CI will recover.
