It is concerned with costs and revenues. In deciding whether or not the fleet plan is adaptable, an evaluation of the operating costs is clearly essential. Great debate always surrounds the composition of an aircraft cost breakdown. Achieving the ‘right’ economics is rather like achieving the ‘right’ performance. In other words, ‘right’ is not necessarily ‘least’. As we have just seen, using an aircraft with the maximum range may not be the most appropriate solution if that range is not strictly required for today’s or tomorrow’s network.

There is certainly a finite limit to a hub; if operating efficiencies and passenger satisfaction are to be optimised. It would appear that maximum efficiencies occur when around 50−70% of traffic is connecting at a hub. Atlanta and Dallas Fort Worth airports, which are dominated by Delta Air Lines and American Airlines respectively, both achieve connecting passenger numbers within this range. Hubs are important in the context of fleet planning because the hub strategy, in terms of network design and number of waves per day, will contribute largely to the aircraft size required.

Sometimes it is not in the interests of the airline to spook their shareholders concerning the degree of investment capital required in the future. The leasing companies provide another safety valve in controlling the speed at which capacity comes into the market and, crucially, in providing capacity at relatively short notice. Both Boeing and Airbus have seen their customer base considerably expanded thanks to the creation of new markets by the lessors. Operating lessors see aircraft as a financial vehicle rather than a transport vehicle and are just as influenced in their buying strategies by the economic cycle as the demand for air travel.
