new or newer aircraft.
« on: July 26, 2012, 10:34:36 PM »
Just a quick question.

is there any difference in having a brand new 733 and 737 7. apart from engines fuel etc. will it have any difference on market share?

The -700 might do very slightly better than the -300, assuming the same seating. There is some sort of airplane comfort factor built in, and newer models rank higher. But how much difference that actually makes, I don't know. I think it's less difference than the normal daily variation in pax numbers.

So yeah, for all practical purposes, there's no difference.

Nothing different except the 737-700 is mach .04 faster. Fuel difference is negligible. I prefer the OG 737's personally because they just cost so much less. I believe if both aircraft are brand new, there is no LF (load factor) difference.
No replacement for displacement

A few more differences come into play under the recent changes.

as an example - I have found that some of my potential passengers do not prefer to fly on a 737-300/400/500 (hence potentially limiting my LF) however they have no objection to a 737-600/700/800/900, therefore I have already ordered a few 737-800's to cater for them

Depends on how you plan on using them and your future goals.  The 737NG's are fleet type common with the -900's, which are great profit drivers later in the game, and you won't have to reschedule anything to start using them on your higher demand routes. The faster cruising speed of the NG's can also be nice, however, if you're planning on short haul stuff and not needing the capacity of the -900's, the 733/734 CL's could do just fine for you.
