So since I ran out of routes with high demand to do in europe i was thinking on doing long-haul flights and I was looking through all the different prices for the 777 and a330. And I did some calculating and leasing showed to be around 20% cheaper since there's only a limited time obviously. And it totally makes sense that the price is gonna be higher if you buy aircraft beacuse you have it for a long time... So what the question is, Is leasing really 20% cheaper like I calculated or is there a mechanic behind that I'm not seeing?

Depends on what seat configs you equip your aircraft with and what route you put them in. Long range aircraft have a specific range in which they're efficient and profitable (for me at least). A lease for the 777-300ER for 10 years is around 1 million, plus maintenance costs and other so you may have trouble to make good profit. After you've made some money, I suggest you buy your Long-Haul aircraft for maximum profit. For me, leasing isn't the best solution because the monthly leases can really hurt your income.

Once you get enough money, the costs of leasing would not be noticeable. I have a fleet of around 100 aircraft, and about 85 of them are leased. The thing that hurts my income the most at this point is fuel costs, but there is really nothing I can do about that until more efficient aircraft come around.

It is but buying them increases valuation. That's why I bought my entire fleet and jumped like 6 ranks one time.

I personally prefer leasing my aircraft on 10 year contracts then outright buying them at the end of those contracts, if not just outright buying them in the first place. It's how I can get away with none of my airlines having any cash and still getting as big as they are.

Yes, any aircraft you're leasing can be bought from the lessor (as long as you can afford it).
