Plane Comparison

Small plane comparison.

  • Yellow is ATR-72.
  • Orange is BAe-146
  • Green is CRJ-700
  1. Dark lines (2) indicate a resale value of 2 gold planes.
  2. Regular Lines (1) indicate a resale value of 1 gold plane.
  3. Dashed lines (0) indicate a resale value of 0 gold planes.

Notes:
The BAe-146 is the only S plane that retains a resale value (of 1 gold plane) after breaking even. Sell BAe-146 after 113,882 nm and before Maintenance C (at 326,383 nm) to net 1 Gold Plane. These graphs do not account for ‘rushing’ planes during service, to ensure the plane breaks even, sell it close to Maintenance C.

Medium plane comparison.

  • Yellow is E190.
  • Red is B738
  • Blue is A320
  1. Dark lines (2) or (3) indicate a resale value of 2 or 3 gold planes.
  2. Regular Lines (1) indicate a resale value of 1 gold plane.
  3. Dashed lines (0) indicate a resale value of 0 gold planes.

Notes:
All M planes can be sold right before maintenance C, at which point they will have paid for themselves while still retaining 1 Gold Plane of resale value.
The E190 can (theoretically) be sold after 127,909nm and before maintenance B, at which point it will have paid for itself and still retains a 2 Gold Plane resale value.

Large plane comparison.

  • Dark Red is B787
  • Red is B777
  • Dark Blue is A340
  • Blue is A350
  • Don’t mind the Green line, its the Concord
    1 Numbers in ( ) show resale value in Golden Planes.

Notes:
No L planes pay themselves off before maintenance B (except the Concord)
All L planes pay themselves off before reaching C and still have some Gold Plane resale value, if you’re into that.

In general the greater the passenger capacity the greater ROI (return on investment) on the plane.
Except for the concord, why is only maintenance A and B on the chart ? Where is C and D ?
Let’s move on to the X planes.

X-Large plane comparison.

  • Blue is A320
  • Red is B747
  • Green is the Concord shooting through this graph too.
  1. Numbers in ( ) show resale value in Golden Planes.

Notes:
Both X planes can be sold right before maintenance B, at which point they will have paid for themselves while still retaining an astounding 13 Gold Plane of resale value.
Selling right before Maintenance C will yield 6 Gold planes as well as over ₩700,000 in profit.
Lastly, the B747 make less ₩ per nm, however it’s longer life span allows it to make 93.4% of what the A380 makes.
Where does that Concord Graph end? It’s quite mysterious.

I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong but I can’t seem to edit the original post. So here is an updated plane comparison chart for the 1.2.6 update to include the Saab and the Dash Q400.


I’ve added potential sell points:
Saab at Maintenance A, will sell for 1 Gold plane and a loss of ₩4,114
ATR72 at Maintenance B, will sell for 1 Gold plane and a profit of ₩7,179
Q400 at Maintenance B, will sell for 1 Gold plane and a profit of ₩7,483
CRJ700 at Maintenance B, will sell for 1 Gold plane and a profit of ₩8,188
BAe146 at Maintenance C, will sell for 1 Gold plane and a profit of ₩79,313

DH COMET
This is a bit of a flex purchase. At the starting price of 100 Gold planes this base level plane will treat 81 passengers to 1950’s style first class airtravel. For an additional 25 Gold planes you can unlock a custom livery sporting your user name. This will ensure your connection partners know just how loaded you really are.
So the 100 gold plane fee is required just to get your foot in the door. You will still need to shovel out ₩1,000,000. for each plane.

For comparison purposes this plane carries 1 more passenger than the Dash Q400. So it makes a bit more ₩ per flight… well before you consider fuel, then it makes less.
Here’s the confusing graph that no one seems to understand:


All you need to know is that the rest of the M planes all complete their service life and are sold for gold planes before the COMET goes in for maintenance A. The scribbly gray thing on the left is all the other M planes combined.
The COMET will break even at 4,666,667 nm, thats 626 round trips from IAD-PRG. So If anyone claims to have broken even on a COMET before 25th March 2022 they are lying.
All of that neglects the fuel costs.

Some Jackwagon bought a COMET at the INN airport, good luck paying that off chump!

Here we see him preparing to fly his purchase to BRI for a meager ₩213. It’s gonna take him 3,450 trips just to reach Maintenance A.

So In conclusion, this is the Bugatti of WoA … for now.
