“We Never-Fail to Deliver Your Package on Time.” When Never-Fail has more freight than it
can deliver, it pays Kirby to carry the excess. Kirby contracts with independent pilots to fly its

The plane has an estimated useful life of 25,000,000 miles and a zero salvage value. During the

San Francisco, for which Kirby paid \$350 for the pilot and \$300 for fuel. The second flight was a
round trip from Chicago to New York. For this trip, it paid \$300 for the pilot and \$150 for fuel.
