Now we continue by analyzing the Cash Operating Cost (COC) of the aircraft in a typical long haul configuration, using our normalized seating. We are assuming that the 767 and the 757 are a half-life state between overhauls of engines and airframe.
Our benchmark aircraft is an Airbus A330-200 which is flying in a mainline airline. Here we assume that it is 25% deteriorated since new for engines and airframe.
