Western Air has dozens of flights daily into and out of Springfield Airport, which is highly congested. Western Air depends for its success on economy and quick turnaround and consequently is planning to replace its large planes with Skybuses, whose novel aerodynamic design is extremely fuel efficient. They Skybus' fuel efficiency results in both lower fuel costs and reduced time spent refueling.
Which of the following, if true, could present the most serious disadvantage for Western Air in replacing their large planes with Skybuses?
A. The Skybus would enable Western Air to schedule direct flights to destinations that currently require stops for refueling.
B. Aviation fuel is projected to decline in price over the next several years.
C. The fuel efficiency of the Skybus would enable Western Air to eliminate refueling at some of its destinations, but several mechanics would lose their jobs.
D. None of Western Air's competitors that use Springfield Airport are considering buying Skybuses.
E. The aerodynamic design of the Skybus causes turbulance behind it when taking off that forces other planes on the runway to delay their takeoffs.
E because the western Air success depends on quick turnaround time, Sky buses causes delays in take offs....it takes time here... so this can be a disadvantage for Western Air.
But the passage never says it will delay Western's other flights, just that it will delay other planes in the runway from taking off. If the other planes are with different companies, why would that bother Western Air?
me too for E. Another thing that can be looked is that it is stated that the airport is highly congested. hence if the plane causes delay for take off for other planes, the airline may hv to face regulatory problems apart from the legal Suit if the competitiors plan so ..
