727 and Fuel Costs
« on: March 17, 2013, 10:14:14 PM »
What price is the death nail for the 727? There is a few kicking about on the used market and im interested in grabbing them but not sure what price makes them unworkable?

Keep your LFs up and you should be just fine. The 727 might look pretty bad next to newer models but it should still be viable for a couple of years yet. In the real world they made it into the early 2000s before that third engine became too much of a problem. I've kept Tu-134s running profitably in the late 90's before and they use just as much fuel as a 727 for only 72 seats. The 727 has enough seats to make enough money to cover it.

Viability depends on how you fly them and the revenue you generate more than fuel costs, but that is the case with any plane. Also, they are now hard to find on the used market

Might stick to my MD90's, 752's and A300 plan. That 4th type MX costs plus margins with fuel probs would not be worth it...
