Quoting MCOflyer (Reply 238):
the II96 is a friggin gas hog.

You will have to fly a loooong way before the better economics of the A340 pay for themselves in terms of the extra capital outlay. On my VVO-ORD route the IL9 burns 41,644lbs more fuel than the A343 - although the A340 does carry 35 more passengers further, so it's not a 100% direct comparison. With fuel bought at $400 that means I'm paying an extra $16,657 per flight to fuel the beast, but I've saved $23,778,568 on the purchase price, meaning I would have to fly that route well over a thousand times (more than two years of playing the game every single day) before buying the A340 instead pays off.

Don't get bogged down too much by the efficiency - in this game it doesn't really have much bearing.

Well look at it this way:

I could send two 737ER's on the ORD-NRT route and make the same money if a 763ER was on the route. I could do the same for the ORD-PPG route if it gets below 85%.

Whats your most profitable routes? Mine are ORD-PEK, ORD-PPG.

That is the god honest truth. Go for capacity and range and maximize cheap. There's a reason I have 20 787-8's and no 747s. (though I might buy one for the achievement. How many pax points does that achievement get you?)

also, I've flown over 200,000 passengers without getting any pax points. What do I have to do?

Probably Vladivostok-Fuzhou, or one of the nearbye destinations which I serve with the Tu-154M. They pull in say an average of $220,000 each time they go out, and I'll send them out maybe 6-8 times a day as I break from work (breakfast, elevensies, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner etc...) so overall they are more profitable than the longhaul routes (not so much with the Il-96). These core routes will be upgraded to the Il-86 eventually, but there's no rush for that just yet.

Quoting D l x (Reply 4):

It's random, I've found some routes got them when I started it at 99%, but I just did another one and no pax points this time.

Very true. Afterall, it is just a game.

Even having a streamlined fleet doesn't seem to save you on maintenance costs, so I try to buy an aircraft that I think would be optimal for that route.....that is why my fleet is all over the place  Silly

Anyways...update on Snow Globe Airlines

Account: $100 mil+

Company value: $82 mil +

Routes/Fleet: 85/85

Fuel: 22 mil lbs + (I will purchase it when it hits $400, so the stock might take a slight hit)

Stock: $8.19 Big grin

Just bought a 747-100 so I could get the achievement pax bonus.

10 pax points.


WTF?!

At least I got 100k for it. But still, I'm selling it. there's no point to having anything larger than the 787-8 when it only costs $19M.

Or am I wrong?

Instead of the 739ER, I bought my 10th 73G and two CRJ100's making a total of 10 for each type. New service to ABQ and YJT was initiated using CRJ 1000 a/c while service to Kunming via NRT was started with a 73G. The CRJ's have been very reliable and so have the 762ER/762 a/c. The 737 series have gotten better.

Another growth spurt over the past 24 hours (day off from my real world work), and now we're totaling 30 aircraft. mPod Airlines fleet numbers 9 ERJ-100-AR aircraft and 21 Bombardier DHC-8-Q400 aircraft.

We've expanded our international presence. New routes from all hubs and focus cities to Cancun Mexico has paid off well. North of the border we launched Vancouver BC from Dallas, Minneapolis and Kansas City. Phoenix - Vancouver will be joining the network shortly.

Route network:
Dallas focus city:
Cancun, Miami, Minneapolis, Philidelphia, Vancouver

Minneapolis focus city:
Cancun, Houston, Miami, Seattle, Vancouver

Kansas City Hub:
Boston, Cancun, Miami, Orlando, Philidelphia, New York, Seattle, Vancouver

Phoenix Hub:

Update from Ekva Airlines

We're adding two B787-8 every day and use them on our ULR-routes mostly from North America to SE Asia and/or Australia/New Zealand. Each one of those flights give about 1.300.000 to 1.700.000 profit one way. The B787-8 is really a money maker. All B737-800s and B767-200/ERs have been sold.

Looks like somebody made a profit and decided to sell my stock so something around 240,000 shares available. WeFlyEverywhere Airlines (not yet literally LOL).

Anyone can recommend a/c that goes from 2500 km to 5000 km with 140+ passengers ?

Also something that goes 7000 to 10000 km with 170+ passengers.

We are pleased to announce the creation of a new base in Moscow after completing talks with Yakovlev for more aircraft. 40 new Yak 42Ds have been placed on firm order with options for an additional 20. This will allow large scale expansion into Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Western Russia, paving the way for the introduction of an Il-96 shuttle between Moscow and Vladivostok.

The 739ER, 739 or 753 are excellent choices. I have eight 739ER, six 757-300's and one 737-900. TBH, I would rather have a fleet of those types as they offer a lot of flexibility when comes to choosing routes.

Hornet International announces that the CRJ fleet is being returned to Bombardier in favor of more 73G's and 739's.

Quoting DesertJets (Reply 26):
757-300 (range ~6000 km)

I got 12 of these.
A321-200 has slightly less pax and less range. 787-3 is too expensive. B739 looks good -ER also but loses out to the A321-200.

Fuel is at $400/1000lbs, and they seem to add a new countdown timer when the price may go up. The time now is probably less than 5min. Those who need cheap gas, get it now!

Vega9000 Airlines Update:

We regret to inform that the 737-800, the airplane that started it all, is now gone. We have been putting all medium-haul routes served by the A321-200, as funds allow. This has greatly expanded the profits on these routes.
Since funds are now bigger, we're expanding at a brisk pace (without...ahem..."Visa venture capital"). We have now 28 routes, across 3 continents. We opened a second route to Canada, and our first to Central America, Puerto Rico.
However, long-haul routes are still on hold. This is due to two reasons:

- Our CEO's inability to resist buying another A321-200 when funds allow.
- our CEO's inability to choose a plane to open a long-haul route with, once and for all.

Due to these unfortunate circumstances, we cannot say for certain when a true long-haul network will be buit. We are, however, pleased to announce that we have secured the consulting services of a certain Michael O'Leary, from Ireland, to Begin negotiations with Airbus to buy a A330. We have been told from reliable sources that he's well respected and liked at Airbus, so we expect a good deal on this aircraft soon.

Our current route network:



Our stock as also been going up at a brisker pace lately. Currently at 1.46 (took a few hits today, due to fuel and advertisement purchases), and still rising. there are plenty still available to discerning investors. We are also pleased to announce that you can, from now on, trade the 5% stock buying fee for miles at our frequent flyer program, and an automatic upgrade to our exclusive "Filthy Rich Class" aboard our planes.*

*Subject to availability. "Filthy Rich Class" now being fitted to our fleet, not available on all planes. BAe146 is excluded. Not available on intra-european routes, except Russia. If no "filthy rich class" seats are available, you will be seated on the "Cattle Plus" class, where available. "Filthy rich class" upgrades do not include champagne, massages, and adult movies as in a regular "Filthy rich class" fare.
Don't believe anything you read on the net. Except this. Well, including this, I suppose.

I too have experienced labor relations problems where crew groups go from "happy" to "on strike" within several hours without any real reason. These almost appear like virtual "wildcat" strikes that materialize out of nowhere.

Its been very frustrating and somewhat damaging to my reputation percentage score. Ugh!!!  crazy

Cubano Express is on track to add a 5th Yak-42 to its fleet today -- expanding to another destination in the Caribbean. We've signed a letter of intent with the Tupolev design bureau to purchase several Tu-154M trijets. These planes will allow us to open service to Canada as well as deeper into South America. We are also exploring the possibility of opening long-haul routes with IL-62 aircraft. We anticipate these aircraft will initially call at Moscow and St. Petersburg.

Investment opportunities are still available. Our stock value has more than doubled (from 3 cents a share!!!).

Investment opportunity from Think Global Airlines:

My airline's stock value on November 29 was: $58,16 and today it is $96,95. About $ 40 increase in less than 2 weeks. On top of it, I am buying an average of 20-30 widebodies per day so the rate of increase is expected to get higher. In fact, at around 19:00 GMT today, I am planning to buy aircraft worth 700,000,000. This alone will increase the value by about $3 ...

I have limited stocks available for those who have the cash...

Hurry up  Smile
