What Would Your Airline Look Like?

Sun Apr 16, 2006 10:24 pm

There must be people here that are bored finding Easter Eggs, so I thought, let's do a little "game".
I was thinking, if you would run an airline, what would you do?
Assume you are the CEO of an airline, how would the basics look like, given the following conditions:

1: For the sake of simplicity, the number of routes is limited to 10. JFK-LHR (round trip) counts as one route. Stopovers are allowed, but they count as 2. JFK-LHR-BKK is possible, but it counts as 2 routes.
2: You can only buy 10 aircraft, each of them can only serve 1 route. In the case of multiple legs, 1 aircraft can serve both legs. More aircraft can run on the same route.
3: You have 35 credits to buy aircrafts, which come at the following costs:
B744/A346 - 5 credits
B777/A330 - 4 credits
B737/A320 - 3 credits
F70/E170 - 2 credits
4: At least one route must be crossing the Atlantic or Pacific.
5: All routes have to connect, i.e. flying SYD-AKL is no problem as long as you connect to SYD and/or AKL with a next route, and so on.
6: If you have any self respect you operate at least one B744/A346.

Examples to clarify:
The most easy example would be buying 7 B744's and flying all of them on JFK-LHR, having 3 routes left you cannot use.
You could buy 10 A320's and fly 10 routes, having 5 credits left.
You can run 1 B777 on JFK-LHR-BKK, leaving 31 credits for 8 remaining routes.

My airline would look like this:
1*B744=5
7*B777=28
1*F70=2

JFK-NRT B744
CDG-JFK B777
CDG-NRT B777
JFK-EZE B777
EZE-SYD B777
SYD-NRT B777
EZE-CPT B777
CPT-CDG B777
CDG-LHR F70

Enjoy!

This one has a hub in MSP, acts as if NW doesn't exist, and hearkens back to the day of widebodies being used commonly on domestic service. It is also unrealistic and would probably go bankrupt today. Let's just pretend fuel is also as cheap as in the past. Since values weren't assigned for the 757/767 family, I gave them a value of 3.5.

MSP-CDG B762ER
MSP-ORD B744
MSP-EWR B773
MSP-DTW B764
MSP-STL B764
MSP-YYZ B764
MSP-DFW B739
MSP-PHL B739
MSP-MEX B739
MSP-MCI B739

Fleet:
1x Boeing 747-400
1x Boeing 777-300
3x Boeing 767-300
1x Boeing 767-200ER
4x Boeing 737-900
Last Flight: SCX701 MSP-PHX B738 8Jan2008

I felt free to add the MD-80/90 family to the list with the same cost as A320/B737 and the MD-11 to the 330/777 category. Or do the planes still have to be in production? In that case, exchange my MD-11's for B772ER's and my MD-90's for B738's  

My airline will be based at ARN and have a fleet looking like this:

1 x 744
3 x MD11
2 x 763ER
3 x MD90
1 x E170

Map and route details (all routes are return trips):




  • ARN - BKK 8272 km B744
  • ARN - LAX 8885 km MD-11
  • ARN - JFK 6309 km MD-11
  • ARN - MIA 8010 km MD-11
  • ARN - ORD 6875 km B763ER
  • ARN - YYZ 6331 km B763ER
  • ARN - LHR 1466 km MD-90
  • ARN - CDG 1543 km MD-90
  • ARN - FRA 1227 km MD-90
  • ARN - SDL 322 km E170
