I have a good profit going, and I am getting ready to get a set of new aircraft. This is what I am looking at and trying to decide:
I am having a hard time deciding what would be the best choice for me. I am based out of Denver and am only doing domestic routes, so range is not a factor. However, they all seem to balance each other out in terms of cost, passenger load, fuel burn, etc. What do you guys think would be the optimum choice?
For example: the A320 and the 737-800 are very closely matched, but both are somewhat on the expensive side. They carry a somewhat larger number of pax compared to my B732A's though.
On the other end, the A319 and the 737-700 are somewhat closely matched, although the A319 is cheaper to operate. They carry the same pax as my B732A's, but cost significantly more in leases.
I like the 737-600 as it would be a direct replacement of my 732A's, but why spend all this money and not get something bigger/better?
My wheels are really spinning on this... there are a lot of pros and cons for either way... can y'all help me out with your input??
