or your smaller ones for that matter? OR are a lot of you sticking to Y for now? Just curious.

I'm just trying to decide if I want to take a DC-6 out of service for 3 days at this point. It's at all Y right now and the airline is fairly new. I'll check the price of a reconfiguration to see if its doable. I just sort of wondered what other people doing at this point. I do have routes where it would be good to have or maybe just wait for LF's  and revenue to move up some before I do that. And yes, of course it depends on the route. ;)

I worked out on my routes with DC6 there is more potential ticket income in all Y than adding C perhaps the same calculations could help you Gary.

All my Viscounts have some C replaced the all y with dual class and retro-configed before allotting to newer routes.  Cheaper to order long  leased ones all y and re-configure on delivery.  Looking at my LFs it looks as if my competitors are neglecting this important market sector!

Wow! Both good points to consider. This will take some pondering indeed! ???

Almost all my routes have plenty of premium demand, so the backbone of my fleet consists of Lockheed Super Constellations in 70Y, 8C configuration. It gets me around $1500 more per route than if I'd filled the plane with Y seating. The Comet 3s I'm putting into service at the moment have 60 Y seats and 3 C seats each, as they're smaller and their speed allows them to fly routes more frequently (hence scooping up the rest of C demand).

My advice is that a large bird like a DC6 should definitely have some C seats on longer routes. If the lease is running for a couple more years you'll be very glad you took it out of service for 3 days!
