Only my second time at it... joined a long time ago.... i think its fun and doesn't take a huge amount of time.... unless someone sets up shop in you home base.... then look out!
|Quoting Northstardc4m (Reply 5):|
Yes i've joined too, but not telling who as :P

It's not hard to figure out which one you are. You'll probably be in first place by next week at the latest.

LOL! Will your carrier change it's name in 1991?

IF I set up at your home base, just cut bait and run

Question #1: One hub is east coast, the other hub is western-central. Should I duplicate traffic between the hubs? For example, hub1-LAX and hub2-LAX? Or should I generally split traffic between east and west, directing the flight to the closest hub?
Question #2: At what point should I start increasing frequencies? Ever? Should I run 2x or 3x between a hub and LAX, or should I run 1x and also run 1x to a new, smaller destination, such as Savannah, GA?
Question #3: Seems there is no point in saving money up and ordering planes in bulk. I would have assumed you'd get a bulk discount or have a day or two shaved off the delivery time for each.
Quyestion #4: I've noticed that a lot of short-haul routes generates a lower amount of revnue, but proportionally much more than longer flights. For example, my base is in the northeast, and I have one plane doing a crazy amount of short-hop flights to every airport in the area from DC to NYC, Boston and even Canada. This plane generates a ton of revenue - so is it better to keep routes as short as possible? For example, should I have hubs all over the US in higher-traffic areas (one in FL, one in CA, one in the NE, one in TX, one in the midwest, etc) running the short-hop flights and then connect all the hubs together?
Don't feel like you have to give your secret strategies away, but since this is my first round, I'm not sure the best methods here, so any help would be appreciated!

Definitely a fun game........ For a while.
I'm up at the 2nd place spot now and its awfully boring. Just bought 75 CRJ-200's and don't feel like clicking for 4 hours setting up all the routes to the smaller airports. Oh well.
|Quoting Northstardc4m (Reply 20):|
Get the premium gate search... but yes it does get tiring... and whats worse is in 5-7 years you will have to replace all those CRJs... lest your maintenance fees skyrocket.
