The Douglas DC-8 was a four-engine jet airliner produced from 1958 to 1972. Launched later than the rival Boeing 707, the DC-8 nevertheless gave Douglas a strong foothold in the airliner market and was produced until 1972, when much larger designs, including the DC-10, made the DC-8 obsolete. Attributed to second-tier duties, the design details of the DC-8 allowed it to hold slightly more cargo than the 707; Dozens of converted models remain in service to this day, while the 707's commercial service had largely ended by 2000.
The DC-8-72 and DC-8-73 were direct conversions of the -62 and -63 models, replacing the JT3D engines with CFM56-2 high bypass 22,144 lb-ft (98.5 kN) turbofan engines in new hulls built by Grumman. The DC-8-71 achieved the same goal, but required much more modification because the -61 did not yet have the improved wings and displaced engines of the -62 and -63. The maximum takeoff weight remained the same, but there was a slight reduction in payload due to the heavier engines. All three models were certified in 1982, and by the time the program ended in 1988, 110 DC-8 Series 60s had been converted.

We should note that the number of passengers per Jet Sharing flight varies from 3 to 8, while the cost of the flight ranges from 1200 to 5000 pounds (depending on the destination).

Empty Leg flights
Another way to fly cheaper is to use Empty Legs. This service allows you to save on regular charter rates. As you know, some of the flights are one-way (for example, when the passenger flies from England to France). After the flight, McDonnell Douglas DC-8-72 returns to its home base (for example, to London Heathrow airport) empty. Such a flight is called “Empty Legs”. Empty leg flights can be as cheap as 50-75% off the standard charter price. This option is profitable for both the passengers and the charter companies. The clients can enjoy the services of business aviation at a very good price, while the airlines recoup part of the cost of fuel and jet maintenance.
You should know that Empty Leg flights offer the same service as private jet charters. The passengers enjoy 100% private jet flying experience. Additional services and flight conditions are discussed individually. We should note that our company cooperates with the world’s largest home bases, so we can offer our clients a wide choice of return flights. Just send a request to our manager who will help you find the best flight options.
