not adding a type.

Conclusion seems even if you are to pick your first and even only fleet the One-Eleven doesn't seem like a good choice compared to the 737. Despite the heavier class and maintenance cost.

no brainer if first and only. the ~500 extra nm range is huge. + it is cheaper to maintain 737 then BAC.

I'm not trying to start an argument or anything.. and I agree with people saying he should stick with the 737. But on the stats I'm looking at, the BAC is cheaper to maintain than the 737? Maybe not if you calculate it per seat?

I only mentioned the commonality cost is lower with the 737.. but look at the pic below... The engine upkeep is also cheaper

In addition to the One-Eleven, another good aircraft made by BAC is the Concorde.  ;D

I wonder why everyone somehow misses one minor point: the order book for 732adv is 640 planes at the moment, if you book now - the earliest delivery is 1979. I bet that in 6 game months the lead time for delivery will 5y+. By the time your 732s fly to you, most of the routes will be taken and your competitors will be far ahead.
Thus while 732 might have extra seats, better running costs, etc, BAC is available today, which makes it a FANTASTIC plane for someone who needs planes today rather than builds a pipeline for 5-10 years in advance

There are also 1600 in storage/for sale on the used market though versus only 46 for the BAC 1-11, which makes things much easier :)  I am flying the BAC 1-11 and only got 1 aircraft off the used market so far--the rest have been from the factory.

Not everyday you can grab a B732A from the UM, and with the BAC, you can get fast delivery rate, too, up to 20 new A/C per year I guess. Not a bad number
