The closest I have seen to *real* figures are the ones published in Air
Transport World. Each month they publish representative figures for three
similar types, breaking down the costs and listing sample size (and the all
important average stage length). Also included are resale values.

This is the only available data I have seen that isn't "filtered" by
manufacturer or airline.
