Boeing BBJ's Should Have Ticket Factor 2

Post by DesertSaker » Fri May 13, 2022 2:49 am

So it appears all private jets have a ticket factor of 2. The 737 BBJ series currently has a ticket factor of 1. The BBJ should fall into the private jet category as it is a business jet and its passenger capacity is severely reduced compared to the standard 737-700. As it stands, it's incredibly difficult to pay off a BBJ, and I'm not sure that it is intended. What do you guys think?

i took a look at the BBJ's we have in the database, BBJ2 and BBJ3 both had business seat replacement factors of 1, meaning economy and seats can be replaced with business class on a 1-1 basis, while BBJ1 had it as 2:1 which is the standard for 'normal' aircraft. I updated BBJ1 so its the same as the other two. But the ticket factor is still 1 of course.

In general your not going to make more money operating a BBJ than you would operating the corresponding airliner, if they were more profitable you would see a lot more of them IRL, as it is they are quite rare.
