Hornet International announces new business class service to CLE aboard our A318 elite and service to PKT. The 762ER being delivered on 11/30 will be used on Brussels-LPB. CEO KH says he extremely pleased of the move from MLB to BRU and is announcing service to PBM aboard a 737ER that will delivered this afternoon. The 737ER and 73G are the workhorses of HIA's fleet. HIA will exercise five options on 73G's and convert them to four 739ER's for short domestic runs within Europe and Africa. HA aims to have a fleet of three 762ER's and 15 737's by next week.

Supergman Airlines is pleased to announce that the 3 737-800 and 4 Dash 8's have been replaced on a one for one basis with ERJ 190-200's. We now operate a fleet of 9 ERJ 190-200's which fly to the following destinations.

LHR - FRA
LHR - BRU
LHR - ATH
LHR - BCN
LHR - MAD

MAN - FRA

We have also made a massive investment in our fuel reserves and now hold 5.5million lbs of fuel, this massive investment in the fleet and fuel reserves have meant the stock price has taken hit but the share price is already starting to recover as the benefits of this massive investment take effect.

Denver Carrington Airlines was founded 28-11-09.

We sold off our Boring 737-800 and bought 4 classic Vickers Vanguard aircraft for our intra-European network. Cities served by Denver Carrington Airlines so far include :

Frankfurt
Copenhagen
Berlin
Hamburg
Luxembourg

We are very pleased with the revenue generated by our Vickers Vanguards, and we hope to expand our fleet with modern MD80, Tu154, IL18, IL62 and IL86 aircraft in the near future.

RE: Facebook Airline Manager Part 3

Sat Nov 28, 2009 4:08 pm

Thanks to this thread (actually, thanks to part 1 of this thread), I've started playing a week ago, and now I'm hooked.

So, here's the report for Vega9000 Airlines - my airline, my name on it!:

Background and history:
The CEO of the company, Mr. Vega9000, had a nice cozy life with safe government job when, out of nowhere, came the news that his third degree uncle, Mr. Linus, a reclusive billionaire, had died. At the funeral, he was shocked to learn that he had inherited a almost brand-new 737, the private plane of his dead relative. Now the said uncle was a very frugal man, so frugal in fact that he insisted on flying coach, even in his own aircraft, so it was configured as a normal passenger airplane, able to carry 135 persons. Mr. Linus had a considerable fortune, over 4.6 Billion, that he left to his pet frog - so he could continue his lifestyle of luxurious ponds and a diet of hand-catched Suriname flies. Mr. Vega9000 was awarded the plane because the frog hated flying, as all frogs do.
So now he had a plane, but no money to keep it. Fortunately, upon inspection of the plane, a lost suitcase containing some money was found. And in talks with the pilots, he also learned that he had some reserves of fuel.
As he admired his new possession, an idea came to his mind. He had planned to sell the airplane and buy a Lamborghini or two, but what if he used it to start his own airline?
He made up his mind, quit his job, and Vega9000 Airlines was born.

Evolution:
Being new to the airline business, Mr. Vega9000 made some early mistakes. The first route was LIS-MAD, started with no analysis of demand, ticket price and profitability. Even so, it was enough to buy a second airplane, a very sensible ATR42-300, that seemed to suit the needs for a modest expansion. The fact that it was the very first plane on the list was a mere coincidence. He put it to work, after another non-existent analysis, on LIS-CDG.
So now, the bigger and faster plane was covering 500 km to Madrid and the smaller, slower plane was covering 1400 km to Paris. What could go wrong?
The profits were coming in, at a rate of a spectacular $8000,00 per flight, a bit more for the 737, but still not enough for Mr. Vega9000's ambitions.
Seeing a very slow expansion, and skyrocketing fuel costs, Mr. Vega9000 had a stroke of genius: he decided to engage his brain!
The first move was to hire a consulting firm to do some research on profitable routes. That lead to the amazing discovery that the further the distance, the higher the ticket prices were, and more profits were to be made. And the routes had different demands!
Animated by the reports from the consulting firm, he decided to close both MAD and CDG, and started LIS-GLA with the 737, and MAD again with the ATR, even if he had just paid the closing fee and wasted 3 days of advertising. The brain was engaged, but still warming up.
From there, things started to get as lot better. Glasgow was a money maker, and Mr.Vega9000 started to research planes to expand his young airline. After careful consideration, and a few drinks with some Brazilian girls at the airport bar, a decision was made to base further expansion with Embraer's ERJ145LR. HAM was added, and PRG when income allowed another ERJ.
LIS was selected as a hub. For that, he was awarded a medal of achievement by the Portuguese government, eager to get rid of TP once and for all.
So absorbed was his mind on new planes and routes that he forgot to buy enough fuel, leading to a situation where decisions had to be made. With fuel at $2100 and reserves almost depleted, just enough fuel was bought to allow the next flights to depart. However, a small mistake was made, and one of the planes departed with negative fuel. Those were the most tense moments in the young company's life. Would one of the planes crash due to fuel depletion, leaving him with 34, 50 or - God forbid - 135 lives on his conscience?
Fortunately, all planes safely landed, but a lesson was learned, and that very night, when fuel dropped to $400, one million pounds were bought, and then 500.000 more. That situation would never repeat itself again (It did, a few days later).
Stocks were skyrocketing, with an amazing climb from .11 to .12 in a mere 3 days!
Drunk by his own success, mr. Vega9000 started getting bold. He put the 737 on the TMS route, expanding the airline to a second continent. He bought a third, then a forth, and then a fifth ERJ and opened routes to PMI, HAM and BRU.
The ATR was sold, and MAD closed (again...). All the routes were profitable, and money was pouring in, but Mr. Vega9000 wanted more. More money, more capacity, more routes. A new type, a BAe146, capable of an astounding 86 passengers, was introduced to the fleet, gradually replacing the ERJ - at least, in the routes below 2000 Km.
Some labor issues also arised. Being a very tough negotiator, Mr. Vega9000 stood his ground, taking more than 4 seconds to raise the staff's salaries. However, in retaliation, the pilot's uniforms were changed to Purple, and the mechanic's overalls to Pink. To his great surprise, both professionals are happy, cementing the airline's non-discrimination reputation.

Current status
Due to Mr. Vega9000's extraordinary management skills and vision, stock is now at...$0.18.
The airline is currently considering replacing the remaining 145ERs with 190ERs, adding even more capacity to the 2000+ Km routes. However, expansion has slowed down a little to allow some financial cushion to build up.
This is, however, just a temporary situation. Mr. Vega9000's ambitions are very much alive, and as he looks to the great AM airlines, with hundreds of airplanes and routes, one thing is for certain: He will get there, or at least bankrupt a few investors trying.

Current fleet:
1 x 737-800
3 x BAe146
4 x ERJ 145LR

Current routes (all from LIS):
TMS
PMI
BCN
BRU
FRA
GLA
PRG
HAM

Thanks for your time and patience, and choosing Vega9000 Airlines. You may now leave the plane in an orderly manner.
Don't believe anything you read on the net. Except this. Well, including this, I suppose.

Anyone thought of paint-shopping their airline, and putting a model of it on here? I don't have the talent for that, but I think Airline Manager out to put in an area that if you can do it, to show off what your aircraft would look like. Maybe someone can draw Union Airlines for me, with my current tail.  Smile

Well I am happy to report that instead of 757's I decided to buy one 762 and it is on the BRU-DCA route to test it out and I am happy with my results. I plan on having a total of six 762's/ER models in my fleet.

My fleet:

767-200
N4HA BRU-DCA

767-200ER
N2HA MLB-DOH

73G/737ER/739
N200HA PTY-LPB
N201HA PTY-DAB
N203HA Brussels-Ottawa
N204HA BRU-DOH
N205HA PTY-ORF
N206HA PTY-PHL
N207HA BRU-Sao Tome
N208HA PTY-DCA
N209HA BRU-UFA
N1HA BRU-CPT Note: Operated by ER model

717-200
N101HA
N102HA BRU-DME
N104HA

Summary: The 762's are a great a/c however; the 717's will be sold for cash and expansion for 762ER's and 757's. I am waiting for the 757ER model to come out. Most of routes are 3 hours plus and make decent money. I do have some oddballs like the sole 762 and 739 but they serve their purpose for their routes and can be swapped with any of my domestic runs (except my 739). But I am ok and happy with my decision to increase capacity on certain runs. More than likely the PTY based a/c will be sold for new ones for they have less hours.

As announced, I have closed the CDG-DKR route and open the CDG-YUL. I also opened the YUL-MIA and the YUL-ORD routes. Here is the current status of Normandie Airlines:

CDG:

CDG-ALG CRJ 100
CDG-PMI ATR 42-300
CDG-RBA B737-500
CDG-AYT B737-500
CDG-SVO B737-500
CDG-YUL B737-800

YUL:

YUL-MIA ERJ 190-200
YUL-ORD ERJ 190-200

I might put a lot of ERJs on the Canadian/American markets.

Normandie Airlines is growing slowly, but steadily  Smile

You do realize that the reason demand on cities fluctuates so much in the game is because of crazy people like you switching routes all the time when demand changes a percentage point or two, right?

Drayton Airlines has been a little quiet of late on the forums but has been slowly expanding utilising the 757-300 for now until funds permit some larger metal.

Thanks to the investors that bought in at the low $0.10's I have increased your investment by over 6 times and shares are currently worth $0.61 and rising.

Within the next few days I expect to increase my fleet of 753's and sell my 1 remaining DHC8 and 1 remaining CR1. That will just leave the oldest 738 to be disposed of just before it's C check and replaced with a larger 75 or 76. The sole 737-700ER will continue to run it's ultra long haul route until it's C check when it will hopefully be replaced with a 787 if funds permit.

The route map looks a little sparse still but there are a few routes which follow the same straight line thus making the map look worse than it is

Micromanagement to extract an extra $10k whilst expending $25K in company funds to do so. The net result can be dependence of repeated on the repeated influx of venture capital to keep operations afloat. When the availability of said venture capital dries up the company soon burns through available funds leaving stockholders empty handed.

I am much more comfortable developing slow but steady growth that is dependent on finding and developing routes and the judicious selection of the proper aircraft to fill the routes. In the not too distant future WhineAir will make arrangements for an influx of venture capital (ok I will break down and donate a few bucks to the site developer for his work)which will be used for the continued well thought out growth of the airline

I plan on doing the same, but (perhaps oddly) I don't want to do it until I'm 'finished'. I am enjoying the challenge of starting with almost nothing and having to build up the company by flying routes and earning it, so wanted to avoid a large capital increase early on. I can see the game losing it's appeal once a large airline is reached and the money flows like water. I'm certainly not going to stick an A380 on every route just because I can, that's just pointless in my opinion.

Just added N3HA, a PW4000 powered 762 on the BRU-ORD route. I am pleased with the 762's performance for the short runs. Good news is all 717's are gone. However, I am integrating service to PIT with a third 762 thats on order. My MLB-DOH route will be canceled in favor of BRU-NAS or BRU-MLE.

This post is all the more amusing because it is utterly unresponsive to mine. I didn't say anything about selling airplanes, or actually anything about airplanes at all. I was referring to your maniacal shifting around of your airline's foci, which seem to have gone from Florida to Anchorage to Central America to Brussels.

But since you brought it up: maybe the 717s were MX hogs, but buying them in the first place was dumb.

Counting staff training, the 717 costs over 2.8 million, yet it only carries 106 people, and while it can go 3815km with good fuel efficiency, it's slow at 810 km/h. For $800,000 less, you could have gotten the ERJ200LR, which flies almost as far (3334), carries 16 more people (which nearly exactly sets off the fuel efficiency difference - do the math if you don't believe me), does it 35km/h faster, and requires fewer employees. Given that you can pretty much buy three of those for the price of 2 B717s with a minor shortfall on range, increased speed, and lower CASM, that just wasn't a good business decision.

Wonderful point. I am trying to slowly adjust the aircraft and my routes to allow for continued staedy growth without replying on purchased venture capital. I am talking about the odd tweak here and there and in steps that are measure and well thought out. I only make a change when I find a route/plane combination that makes sense (and cents). I will not change my corporate identity and toss away brand loyalty on a whim.

Right now my focus is on the above mentioned tweaks and in time I might be willing to be a bit more bold in my moves but right now I am happy with the direction WhineAir is moving without the need for a venture capital infusion

Heck, for 1,3 million less, you can get a Fokker 100 Tay-650, which is pretty much equal as well.

I agree. What is the point of shifting it every few hours? Minor fluctuations in the demand are expected and wouldn't affect the profit margin that much. By opening and closing the routes, you end up spending more money on route fees and $5000 closing fees. So far I haven't closed any routes that I started even though the demand keeps fluctuating....as soon as demand drops, people flee from the route and it comes right back up.
Life only makes sense when you look at it backwards.

I just keep firing off the departures, and save up. To begin with it could take me a day to save enough for a simple Yak 42, now a day's earnings can buy three or four Il-62s. To begin with patience is key, but it gets easier after a while - with a fleet that size you should be close, so long as it's all profitable flying?

Start small and find routes that fit your fleet, are profitable and allow to maintain high fleet utilization. After a while you can start to tweak your routes and fleet. Once you start to have steady growth it gets a bit easier to make more $ as well placed, sized and utilized allow further growth. (did that make sense?)

The quick version is once you figure out how to make small sustained growth it becomes easier to increase yield on all fronts

I sold three 717's for newest 762 thats on the ORD run. My new 739ER that will used on the DME run will bought from a 73G thats going to be sold. To me its a trade; saving money and selling a/c on routes thats not profitable.

Buy fuel low; run consistenly good routes, with demands over 90%. That's the best way. It doesn't help to contribute to keeping the website running one time, and getting extra money for your airline.  Big grin

An update for Eastern Atlantic;

Turned the 731's and Bac-111 into beer cans, now flying a fleet consisting of;
ERJ 190-100 9
ERJ 190-100LR 1
Tu-214 4

My stock is sitting at .76 ^

I like the Tu-214 over the 752 because (somehow) it uses less fuel, holds slightly more pax and uses less cabin crew and cleaners.

Supergman Airlines is pleased to announced the acquisition of two new aircraft to our fleet. We have acquired a further ERJ 190-200 which has been utilisied to open a new route from our hub at LHR to Hamburg, this brings the total number of ERJ 190-200's in our fleet to 10. We have also acquired our first ERJ 190-200LR which has been used to inaugurate our new route between LHR and Moscow.

Come invest in our fast growing our airline which has a nice low stock price of $0.30 at the moment but is steadily rising.
