Hello I would like to make this topic for anyone to put airline cost indexes. I would like to credit Jakub Lukaszewski who told me the cost index Wizz air use now. I will start below cost index I know. Could people please comment cost index’s for airbus airlines below as this topic would be really handy for other fslabs users

Cost indexes on many airlines can also be dynamic. I have a dozen of real OFPs of a big EU carrier here where the CI varies withe every route. What goes into determining those by dispatch/flight planning might be quite complicated… but I have no idea how.

I believe Stu's observation is relevant: it seems it is something dispatch does.  Wouldn't operational matters of the day (weather, costs, network issues, etc.) shape CI rather than using a set value?

As already discussed elsewhere, it varies from airline to airline and often within the airlines themselves.

Some use a CI that is very rarely adjusted, some calculate individual CIs for every flight, taking into account the very factors you mentioned. With an ever deteriorating economic environment for the airlines, most dispatch offices will have run the numbers very tightly, which makes it reasonable to assume that the simmer communities' eternal quest for fixed "airline CI values" may not be concluded successfully.

I know that I made this post for people to post airline cost index that use a fixed CI not a flexible ci as I am aware some airlines do that.

I don´t know how actual these values are

It says latest revision is September 2019, so be aware that they might be outdated values (or defunct airlines) in some cases (COVID changed quite some things for many airlines). Still, a nice database that would be worth updating...
