I was really bored in work tonight and i just got thinking
''How do airlines really make their money''?
I checked for the cheapest flight from Dublin to Boston with Aer Lingus.
It ended up coming to ?212 each way!
?40 Fuel Surcharge
Saying the A330-200 takes approx 275 passengers, and,
Saying the A330-300 takes approx 330 passengers
For the -200 they bascally get ?50,600, and,
For the -300 they get about ?60,700.
I cant really figure out how much fuel they'd use so:
1: How much fuel would an A330 use on a flight from Dub to Boston?
(What distance - whats the fuel burn per hour at FL360)
2: How much is Jet A1 fuel per litre ?
(How much do the airlines get it for as they DO buy in bulk)
3: How much profit would they make after this flight?
(Taking into consideration the bills: 2 Pilots, 6 Flight Attendants, Food for all passengers and crew, ATC bills including landing charges, waste etc).
Looking forward to your replies guys/gals
