Relative operating costs can be estimated only within a large tolerance to accommodate wide variation in the complexity of paint schemes and intervals between washings, polishings, and paintings. The cost savings shown for short-range, single-aisle airplanes and long-range, double-aisle airplanes are based on the activity level of an operator that strenuously maintains the appearance of its fleet. Another operator could easily experience half of the cost savings shown.
