I am looking for a 90ish seater aircraft to fly up to 1300 miles. I can do my research and order a few, however i want to find something out first.
I currently operate the 737 3/4/5 family and the ATR 43/45/72 family as well as a few 767/2's, with around 70 aircraft in total, all making good profits. Would it make more financial sense to aquire more 737's and configure them for 90 seats and fly these routes without added commonality costs and extra training or aquire a new smaller more fuel efficient fleet type and have to put up with extra commonality costs and training costs?
what do you guys think would be best?
any advice and critique would be welcome.
