So a few months ago I found a airline management game (Airline 6) and I have been playing non stop. I have to say, I love this game. I was wondering if there was anyone here who might be able to help me out with something. I was wondering if anyone knows if it is possible and if so how to code share with other airlines?

Any news on when V7 is released? Ont heir website they use the excuse of Windows 7 testing as the delay. Surely they couyld release it for VIsta/XP now and doa patch for Windows 7 given Windows 7 has only just been reelased and will have a low penetration rate.

I've read the review on the website and it states that for quarterly calculations it takes like, 3-5 minutes of processing time and other processing times are quite slow too?
To see if it's worth my bucks I'd like to ask a few more questions..
Is a stopover allowed? Like SIN-NRT-LAX
Is it something that you will get tired of after a short period of time?
How is the demand for a flight calculated? According to real life demand or airline reputation? I wouldn't want to end up with my flights all full for all routes! (too unrealistic)
That would be two seperate routes, SIN-NRT and NRT-LAX. There are no connecting passengers in A6, although should be in A7
Quoting Initious (Reply 6): Is it something that you will get tired of after a short period of time?
yes - see below

No idea how it is calculated, but demand is ridiculously high - most routes will have demand of 30,000 per week (about 10 747 flights a day). The AI is almost non-existant, so you are left to serve most routes on your own. Its a case of buy a plane, stick it on a route, make massive amounts of money. repeat. You simply cannot fail to make money, every route has huge demand, and flights go out 100% full. You will find yourself making $1billion+ profits within a year.
I have yet to make it through more than 2-3 years before giving up, and thinking "whats the point!"
Oh, and the screens are also so poorly laid out that you need to have a spreadsheet open just to keep track of what routes and aircraft you have.
