It will give your decisions -like should I go around?Can I take off from here? Should I fly to another airport? Some new interesting meaning (if there is something to be lost). And you can get rewarded for arriving on time .

Here is another - you fly/own for a struggling cargo airline - having to fly old DC3/4/8 (high engine lost -set by the game) to small ,dangerous,remote (high cost for replacing that lost engine if you manage to abort on time and stay in one piece) airports just to stay in business.

That is a step in the right direction. But it is not complete. I see the FS as tool that until now is left unused. Like an engine with no car.
I (as I assume everyone) took the B744 to places were no B744 has gone before -but what did I had to loose ? Nothing (beside waiting for the game to load again) and what did I gain -nothing .Its time to put some real interest in that game .It sounds so simple .(simple enough to run it in our heads so why not put it into the game?)

Yeah, I'd have to say "nay" on the story-line idea. It does wonders for MS Train Simulator, but FS is a good enough program to get along without one--and it's done just fine so far.
I think I see where you guys are coming from when you say a storyline might make FS more meaningful. But there's got to be about a zillion add-on programs and VAs that already serve that purpose. And what about just flying? Isn't that meaningful enough?
I'm starting to shun the airline aspect of FS (except for the VA that I fly for), and concentrating more on general aviation, since that's where all the energy of my real-world aviation career is focused. Also, I can say with some confidence that FS does a much more accurate job simulating the GA aircraft than it does the airliners--they are very much less complicated than they could be, whereas the GA stuff is a lot closer to the real thing.
