I'm trying to estimate the productivity of a typical jet airliner.

Can anyone fill in the following blanks?:

Boeing 727

   amortized purchase price 20-25 yrs. ago._____________
   average hours flown since 1970-75       _____________
   average load factor during life         _____________
   average revenue per passenger/hour      _____________
   average operating cost per hour         _____________

I suppose the operators have this data at hand and could answer my
question:  "How much profit has a typical B727 made in it's lifetime?"

How about figures for other popular aircraft? 

Thanks, John
