Title: Transatlantic Aircraft Suitabilit
Post by: headshot119 on October 13, 2012, 03:40:23 PM
I've opened up routes to both Frankfurt (EDDF) and Schipol (EHAM) at the moment I am using DC-8-55 aircraft.

Are these particularly suited to this sort of work or should I look at something else? I'm getting around 40% load factor after running the routes for about two weeks, with the flights overall making a loss.

DC-8 aren't good anymore, they consume way too much fuel for less pax.

You could go for DC-10 or, maybe better for your airport, Boeing 767 as longhaul aircraft.


A330, 777 etc. are too big for your airport.
