>5080 nm Routes: Stopover, or New Fleet Group?
« on: January 15, 2014, 11:43:10 PM »
Hello AWS community,

I am currently based in Montreal, and have a growing fleet of A310-300s that can fly up to 5080nm. Lately however, I have noticed several destinations that are farther than 5080nm, that I believe would be a good addition to my route network. I was wondering, since I am currently limited to 5080nm, would it be more economical to operate a route longer than 5080nm with a stopover (using an A310-300), or should I open up an entirely new fleet group (for example, a 767-200/300)?

Thanks.

If it's just a bit more than 5080, then just fly with limited payload. ... works up to a point (when it becomes too limited = too few pax to make money).

I'd go with tech stop as you don't have many routes > 5000nm from YUL

And don't try to serve routes with just the demand of your A310. Tech stop will drive 35% of the demand away
