I've been playing with this game for a few weeks, and it's pretty cool. You'll find it at www.airlinesimulation.com.

My only complaint is that I can't find other people who are also playing it. I'd love to know who's out there.

Don't have it, but the screenshots make it enticing. Is it as good as the pictures show? I might have to buy it with my next paycheck.

I have it, and it's fantastic. It has improved a lot in the past months with the upgrades.

Hypermike, wehat version are you using?

I will be using it soon. Can anyone tell me what Canadian Cities are on it? Also what planes. It better be good for what they charge I still can't get over that, $220 CDN. Do they email you when they get your order if so I better make sure they got mine.

Jj, I'm using 4.2.10. So far, its not too bad.

Dash8King, do the currency conversion again. It shouldn't be more than $70 CDN for you. I paid $43US.

The one thing I didn't like was that they send you the CD in the mail. It's only a 20MB download, but they insist on sending you the CD key through the mail.

It came to $143AUD and at 1.54 it was $218. It comes with 5 download upgrades I didn't see that you could buy just the game. If I wasn't getting it for my bday I wouldn't be getting it at all. But I am looking forward to playing it.

$143 pacific pesos = 120 monopoly dollars. (1 AUD = .89 CAD)

full game only availble on CD as it is 300MB, i thought all updates upgrades were available for download

143x1.54=220.22 and it includes 5 updates via download.

Thats nice, but 1 austrailian dollar is less than 1 canadian dollar. 143 x .089 = 120

Didn't mean to contradict, I just wasn't able to find that on the site. All I saw was the currency converter on the ordering page. It seems very strange they would charge 1.54 when the current xchange rate is .89.

Can anyone tell me what the system requirements are for this simulation? I can't seem to find that information anywhere on their website.

It's strange that they should charge you in Canadian Dollars. Mine was charged in Australian Dollars.

I also recieved a confirmation e-mail when my order was placed, but this was back in November 01. Perhaps they've changed their policy.

There used to be a member from "EFZED" at this forum, I wonder where he is now...

Yes he is the owner. I emailed them but have not received an email back. They gave me the price in AUD dollars and I made the calculations. I also thought that was high cuase I can get the US dollar at 1.51 so....

maybe he quoted the 1.54 in error? i assume he charges you the 143, and your bank does the conversion, taking 120 from your account.

I don't think they charged but I need to hear back from them to make sure they didn't before I order another one. I didn't put it on my Credit Card I put it on my parents since it is for my Bday.

How realistic is it in terms of expansion and profitability?
In Airpro you're almost guarenteed to make tons of cash and be able to add tons of planes every month. What is it like in this game? Do you need to earn your expansion and is it realistic? Or is it like airpro where you just grow and grow and grow and grow and always make money?
Thanks
Tony

If you've been put off by the excessive profitability of airpro I would recommend making your own landfile. My favorite two are New Zealand and Hawaii. Becasue they aren't too big and are isolated enough to offer a limited number of destinations (plus only one real hub airport), you never really havea good excuse for buying more than 60 or 70 planes.

I ordered it from the UK a while ago and it took about a week and a half.

Its great now the scheduling has improved, excellent game.

I have one question to anyone who uses it: How does the cargo work?
Can you only pick up cargo on the actual route you use or can you pick it up if you fly to those two cities . So say I fly LHR-FRA and LHR-JFK, can I pick up cargo for FRA-JFK? In theory you would be able to connect at LHR, but I doubt the game is clever enough to realise this.

Sorry I let this thread die.

Don't confuse an update with an upgrade. I only bought two upgrades, but I get all of the updates to my current version.

It took about two weeks to get it in Pittsburgh. It was worth the wait. I've spent many hours playing with this. Unfortunately, I always seem to start losing money somewhere around year 20.
