Commonality Question
« on: February 17, 2011, 06:40:49 PM »
Just a quick question about fleet commonality.

I currently have a fleet of 7 MD-87s with 4 more on order.  These are serving me well, but some of the routes I fly could be even more profitable with the extra capacity offered by an MD-88.  If I order a few MD-88s (I need 4 max at the moment) to take on these heavier routes will I be hit in the neck with increased fleet commonality costs?  Or will it be okay because they are both MD-80 fleet group?

Thanks for your help,

Yes you will be fine Dan as the MD-87 and the MD-88 are in the same fleet group (along with MD-81/82/83) so there will be no extra fleet costs incurred for using them together.

The MD-88 is a good plane for this era so I think you can do well with it.

Hope this helps!
