    Negative. Allegiant started with used planes. Volotea same. We are not talking about operating new planes 10 years down the road, but to start up - they don't need factory new planes. But also 20 year old clunkers. What they need is "newish" by aviation standards, aircraft that went through the first round of leasing (usually 6-8 years) and are after their major D check done recently. Something like 8-10 year old planes are perfectly fine.

    Allegiant is another story, their main profit - Travellers who fly to casinos in Las Vegas, this carrier is a part of a big travel holding.

    Yes they started that way, but Las Vegas flying is no longer the main thing for them. Still important, but sunny destinations in general is the question of the day. And honestly, your nick suggest some knowledge about aviation, so you should know an 8 year old plane after its first D check is not old at all.

    And you are going to compare Ryanair with FlyCana. Don't be silly. Ryanair buys the aircraft (737) at such prices and in such quantities, that when they sell their 5 year old planes at market rates they recoup their original purchase price and possibly even make a small profit. You are comparing apples and oranges.

    Don't be offended about aviation you only have your user nick. Your knowledge hasn't even scratched the surface of all there is to know about inner working of the industry, based on the comments you make.

    Such a big Dominican habit you have. In order to make conclusions you should know more about a person, not only messages in a topic about something unreal yet.
