Maintenance 24+ yr old planes

The Aircraft Type Evaluation only gives information for planes up to 24 yrs. Does maintenance continue to increase as the plane gets older past 24 yrs?

Yes I believe so

Yes I believe so

I can confirm this, I use a number of older aircraft and have set a personal cap at 28years. I will not use anything older than that with any of my airlines.

It will be a grind to improve such a image how do you bother?

For the actual question the awnser is yes.

Simply put? Image is less important if you have a monopoly. There are reasons that work for me.

It keeps increasing. My 32 years old MD10F costs 43000 maintenance while 44 years MD10F costs 62000 in maintenance per flight.
