Re: Chicago Aviation News - 2018

Re: Why is DL investing money in 20+ year old A320’s

Whether or not to refurbish an older airplane probably has a number of factors. It will include age, number of cycles, number of cycles until a C-check or D-check, fuel consumption, and availability of spare parts. I suspect that maintenance history for any given aircraft plays a role. Airbus is sti...

An airline seat, particularly in coach, is pretty much like other commodities (milk, gasoline, bar soap, etc.). People buy seats based on price and schedule.
