Welcome! I hardly reply on forums lol 

 

Here's a tip: Buy the oldest aircraft you can find, and that too lots of them! Once you start making money, slowly cancel the leases. Until you reach about 300k or so keep leasing used aircraft but aren't really that old. After you made about more than 500k lease new aircraft. Once you reach a billion or more, you can buy new aircraft as you wish :P

Never EVER cancel a lease. You're just giving away money.

Just buy the plane from the lessor and sell it. You'll recapture half of your previous lease payments.

 

Also be careful on how old your used aircraft are. Maintenance costs increase more than linearly with age while lease/purchase costs decrease less than linearly with age. At some point these curves cross, depending on the depreciation rate of the plane in question and the magnitude of its maintenance costs. This will vary from case to case but it's obvious that a 20yo 747-400 is going to be less profitable than a 10yo, for example.

The most profitable thing to do (long-term) is to lease aircraft until the point the cost to buy is 0. You're paying the full lease cost in cash each month - but you get half of that back when you eventually buy the plane, so the total cost is significantly less than the depreciation would be if you'd owned it instead. 

 

This sort of thing only matters with marginally profitable airline models or if you're going for absolute maximum profit. If you have more than a few planes, it's very hard to buy-from-lessor at exactly the right time.

Correct. Any intelligent approach to this game - as with all aspects of life - is a tradeoff between efficiency and effort. For most planes (but not all), the rate of depreciation is sufficiently high that leasing and buy-back is the best strategy. But then again at a certain point there are more efficient (and more fun) uses of your limited in-game time.
