Are Dassault Falcon aircraft too expensive to operate

A few weeks ago A Falcon 50 departed for USA and now there is two Falcon 20 aircraft parked at Bankstown with USA registration about to depart.

Are these aircraft too expensive to operate or just getting too old.

No more no less than any aircraft in Australia. Up to 40% cheaper in the USA

Are you using the DA to try to smuggle drugs that will make you a big profit or are you going to try to compete with passenger RPT services YSSY - YMML?

With respect: Dumb question.

They are too expensive too operate as they are too old. like any other aircraft: the younger the cheaper to operate but the more expensive to own

Forgive me everyone, but I just can't let the above quote go by without slight alteration;

Please note; The below only applies to a certain demographic;

They are too expensive to operate as they are too young! Like some other Women: the younger are the far more expensive to operate and the more expensive to own,

Pinky, as a former ASA pilot who is now with the RFDS once said "If it has t*ts, wings or wheels it will give you problems & cost you money!"

If it flys, floats or fornicates, it is cheaper to rent it!
