I personally value it at alot more then 1.3 and would prefer paying as well, however for the average Joe that is not famialr with all the good mileage uses 10k + $11.20 round trip is pretty good imo.
Or someone who doesn't want to pay out of pocket...
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

The S10e unlocked is still available for 549 from b&h and it's eligible for 1 year YouTube  too


Not sure if this was posted.

B&H has the S10e for $550
https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1456397-REG/samsung_sm_g970uzkaxaa_galaxy_s10e_sm_g970u_128gb.html

Included is a 3 month 8gb sim card from mintsim which seems like they sell for $35-$40 on eBay.

Plus I see that on Samsung's website they're offering a year of YouTube premium with the purchase of any s10 from certain retailers - b&h included.

@Dan
$560 per flight? so basically if one or two seats on each flight goes unsold then they dont make profit for the year?
i think these numbers might be "for accounting purposes"

I'm definitely having trouble understanding the post about the $840,000. A lot of the comments seem to not understand also.

How's 840,000 going to prevent them from losing money if the flights prove to be unpopular?

That's correct. Profit is made at the margin.
Has nobody here taken business courses?

I understand what you are saying.
I guess the question is, if it costs $200K to fly the plane, you are saying that it will be easy for them to gross $194K. I guess people are asking, if it's a total flop, wouldn't it be possible that they could only sell $100K? Then that would eat through the subsidy very quickly
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

They wouldn't launch the route if they thought it would be a total flop. The fact that it's only 3x weekly on a smaller plane means that the risk of a total flop is pretty low.

i have taken business course. but i also understand that a profit margin cant be a fraction of a percent of sales due to margin of error etc...

would you invest into something $200k (assuming thats the cost to fly the plane) only to make $580?

So don't go into the airline business. That's actually a good number for an airline.

Interesting, AA is being subsided.
Maybe the big 3 shall complain and request a meeting with Trump.

I think it should be assur to start a post with the word 'Hot' if it's not a hot deal. For a split second I got excited about this post :)

Lol comments are closed for Ben Ish wines.....

To be fair, I recently opened a bottle I found lying around,
was hands down the best $10 wine I ever tasted.

Ha!!

This is an ad: https://www.dansdeals.com/shopping-deals/amazon/set-2-velette-extra-long-plastic-30-shoe-horns-just-5-95-amazon/

And one of the copycat sites simply copied it instantly like always 

@Dan can charge extra now because the items gets even more exposure
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
