Nothing beats the Vickers Viscount 700D though. 59 pax, 1300NM (can easily fly 1500NM with 45 pax or so). Dirt cheap and no fuel needed. In game world 2, it's 1980 and I still fly like 120 of them while my competitors go bankrupt in the fuel spike.
I am flying them since the start of the game and will probably replace them with Q400 in ~2000. Yup, that's like 40 years using the Viscounts. Call me crazy.
