Let me think hard... 4 holes? range?

Thing is, by the 00s, twins were surpassing four holers in fuel efficiency and range. At the same time, the 777 and 330 had an edge over older designs like...

Yes, there are close to no capital costs, but isn't that more than made up by higher fuel and maintenance cost? Don't the checks cost a lot of time and money once the planes are 30 years old and have...

Last time I looked they had about half a dozen of them left at mainline, running them on thin routes like YUL-FRA. All of them were 29-31 years old. From what I read, they were due to be replaced by...
