AIRLINE INDUSTRY FINANCIAL ANALYSIS WITH RESPECT TO AIRCRAFT NOISE RETROFIT PROGRAMS 1972-1978

The report examined the factors related to the financing of capital investments that would be required by the principal U.S. airlines to purchase and to install proposed noise reducing retrofit hardware on their JT-3D and/or JT-8D engined aircraft. The study identified the number of such turbofan aircraft expected to be retrofit, the range of capital costs for three alternative retrofit programs, the relationship of such costs to total future airline financing requirements, and the variation of retrofit cost impact among carriers in the U.S. airline industry. The cost impact of retrofit was analyzed in relation to a forecast of the principal U.S. carriers' total future financing requirements for flight and ground equipment. Total future financing requirements were analyzed in detail for four selected airlines. (Author)
