On a price basis that would be 6 x 346.3M / $17.5M = 119 Cessnas

For turboprops:
On a passenger capacity basis that would be 6 x 853 (1-class, A380)/ 14(Cessna Grand Caravan) = 366 cessnas

On a price basis that would be 6 x 346.3M / $2.2M= 945 Cessnas

For pistons:
have fun doing your own math.

Prices and capacities pulled from Wikipedia.
LMAO... I can't believe you actually did that.

But hey, if you home in on 172s, you could solve America's unemployment problem just with the pilots you'd need... assuming Boeing has let your airlines buy the flying frogs...
Do you have many Airbus 380s there?

Alas, Boeing has no say in what planes our domestic carriers buy.

Only 52 A380's have been delivered as of Sept and all the carriers are in Eurasia and Oz: Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Qantas, Air France, Lufthansa.

Thru 2016 only one American company is scheduled to take delivery, starting in 2014, and that's a leasing company. FedEx and UPS had orders briefly but cancelled.

Rolls Royce are changing the engines in some A380s to a different variant of the engine.

Comfortable aircraft and you only get an appreciation of the size of the beast of the A380-800 when trying to get off.
