I know a lot of people tend to stay away from Russian jets in AWS, but is there any money to be made at all with the IL62 with the current fuel price at $62?

I was thinking about leasing a few for a couple of years, before the oil crisis hits.

Well, depends on the acquisition cost.

IL62:     28 934 019 USD or 110 300 USD / month
DC8-53: 15 584 000 USD or 192 400 USD / month
DC8-55: 19 079 800 USD or 235 600 USD / month

Never mind... Looking at these numbers it doesn't make any sense at all when leasing used aircraft.

The main problem with soviet/russian/ukrainian steel is maintenance. which skyrockets quickly. Usually, one has to get rid off the birds before their first D Check.

But their very low acquisition costs can make them excellent "growth" aircraft. After some growth, though, you'll want to get rid of them and go to better western aircraft. (NB : the SSJ is intermediate in that domain, half way between both. IRL it is sold as a growth plane to replace later with A320s)
