Really interesting to see that you have chosen an all Russian fleet. Why did you do it and does it work well?

Yes it does work very well. I love flying on Russian aircraft types, although many are not efficient or overly modern in the real world, they are classic designs, whilst types like the An-148 and SSJ have real potential.

HIA announces a transition to a 767-200ER fleet and 737-900 fleet. After doing some calculations, it is more efficient to operate a fleet of 10 762ER's on long haul routes and 10 739's on short haul routes. First up to receive replacement will be N4HA which is on the BRU-DCA run. For some Trans-Atlantic routes this is an upgrade in capacity (YOW, YWG) while for others it is a switch to a more efficient aircraft. All new 762ER's will be powered by PW4094 engines.

I am positive and do not look remotely like him. My reasoning for 762ER and 762's is they are a wonderful a/c and are money makers. All of my routes warrant the capacity of a 762ER.

Edit: New route is BRU-YWG on a 762ER, N6HA. My next purchase will be another 762ER to be used on LPB.

They have finally caught up and given China a realistic number of destinations, hence I'll be adding around six more Yak-42Ds to the fleet for these nearer destinations. A couple more Il-62s will be purchased tomorrow and possibly some Tu-154Ms. Vladivostok is now a decent sized hub operation.

I am very happy with my Yak-42s. With a ROI of nearly 97% what more could I ask for (well the same ROI, fuel consumption, 300 passengers and a 20K range would be nice but I am a realist)

Today was a fairly good day for WhineAir. Today's net profit so far is $12 million+ and a gain of more than $0.22 share is quite reasonable. Tomorrow I will take a bit of a hit as new adverts will be in order and a fuel top off is near (I am down to a bit over 8 million Lbs.

Due to tomorrow's expenses the profits and stock value increase will be smaller than the past few days but I still will able to delay my initial venture infusion (artificial cash infusion via donation) for at least a few more days

Oh well, more flights are due and I have to put out a catering tender

Based on Plymspotters model, I will be evaluating a US hub for a CRJ or ERJ fleet to be based. BRU will serve as my long haul hub with flights greater than 4hrs. I am thinking ORD or MCI. To connect pax to my euro destinations, I would add a 788 or 762ER flight running double daily.

It's a beast - low price, decent fuel consumption and an excellent capacity. If only it had 500km more range then it would be even better, that's the one downside. I admit I'm a bit sad right now; I'm here to send off the flights every 20 mins or so, which means one Yak-42 flying a route of about an hour can net $500,000+ over the course of a day.

THe Yak-42 has by far the highest ROI of any 100+ seat aircraft in the game (there are a few new planes in today's update that I have yet to evaluate). I agree that another 500-750Km range would be quite nice and the inclusion pf the Yak-42D model would fix that quite easily.The D model had a range of about 2800Km, I do not have the fuel consumption numbers for the D model so I can not guarantee the economy or ROI of that subtype

If those are your goals, use ORD. It's closer to Europe and therefore allows quicker turns on those routes. Also, there's not a whole lot of demand to most of the US west of MCI, so you'd be pretty much putting a hub over on the side of the network.

2 x A330-300
10 x A321-200
12 x Fokker 100 Tay620
3 x Fokker 100 Tay650

Those little Fokkers  eek  are gradually being phased out in favour of A320's. They are great little aircarft to begin with, cheap to buy and reasonably cheap to run, but after a while they get prone to expensive maintenance bills.

Growth is still slow but very steady and very healthy. Think tortoise instead of hare.

Well I am proud to announce to major milestones for my fledgling airline.

First the introduction of the Boeing 787-800 Dreamliner on new nonstop SFO-GIG service.

Second we have transitioned to an all jet fleet with the retirement of our ATR fleet.

For the next few days we will focus on consolidating fleet types, with the ERJ-190-200 becoming our short haul plane of choice. Starting today we will begin retiring our fleet of 10 Fokker jets.

Vital stats.

Hubs: ABQ and SFO

Fleet:
1 Boeing 787-800
8 Boeing 757-300
16 Boeing 737-900
2 Fokker F70A
6 Fokker F100 Tay620
2 Fokker F100 Tay650
22 ERJ 190-200

Ok my shares have crossed the $2 mark...so I"m sure who ever invested in Snow Globe airlines at 0.10 is pretty happy Big grin. I still have 20 mil lbs or fuel but will be hitting it up another 20mil once the price is at $400. So expect the share value to drop a bit  Silly

Total 46 routes right now as an A340 was added last night and 767-300ER was added this morning. Now the fuel better come down to $400 as 46 planes are sucking it faster than Monica Lewinski sucked Bill Clinton's hoohaa.

Here's the route map:




Just found that once I start all the flights in the morning, It comes to a whoppin $7 mil! Ka-ching! Thats not counting the multiple runs that will be made throughout the day and the ultra long hour that would be started in a couple of hours and brings in about $1.6 mil

IL-96-400 is perfect for 10000km or under routes, I got 1 flight to Japan from Toronto, over 2mil in ticket sales per flight.

I can't wait to operate it. Doesn't quite fit into my plans just yet, but I'm thinking within a week.

In the last 24 hours I've added 21 Yak-42Ds to the fleet, as more destinations have become available in China. These are all carrying very healthy profitable loads, plus a flight to Chicago was launched which is doing very well. Four more Yak routes are to be opened this evening, after which long haul expansion will be focussed on for the rest of the week.

It's been a while since there's been an update of things over here at BoVoBa. Since then, we've grown a lot, our stock is up by a factor of eight (just ask our investors how much this sucks), and we've been adding destinations and planes. We have maintained our regional focus in the eastern US and Canada and are now expanding fitfully west and south with our point-to-point network. True to our creator, we have focus operations at both IAD and DCA, as well as PIT. True to our name, we're all about drinking, flying, and f***king. Sometimes that means we f*** our flight attendants, sometimes we f*** our customers, and sometimes everybody's just totally f***ed.

Our f***king fleet, otherwise known as "RJs of various sizes and descriptions," along with their BoVoBa marketing taglines:

10x BAe146 - "Twice the holes, half the customers. What's not to like?"
10x E195 - "Who doesn't want a couple hours with a skinny Brazilian?"
5x Dassault Mercure - "A bit old and a bit loud, but it'll get you there and suck your fuel down!"
1x CR705 - "Odd, small, but'll go for a long time - service to San Salvador!"

Future f***ing fleet:
4x E195LR, to replace CRJ and serve destinations between 2500 and 3500 km

Very future f***ing fleet:
4x B73G, to open short TATLs from DCA, just because I think that's funny, and BDA, because it actually makes a tiny bit of sense.
B753, to make lots of money.

Fleet commentary: For those of you trying to grow an airline, I recommend the 146s. They're a little slow, but they're cheap for their size and quite fuel-efficient. As long as you don't want range (and trust me, you don't want to fly these guys any more than about 1500km if you ever want them to actually arrive), they're good. The Mercure is a similar creature. It's enormous for the price, very fast, but has absolutely no range and sucks down the fuel pretty well too. If you can stock up on fuel and fill this bird past 80% consistently, it'll churn out coin like there's no tomorrow.

Destinations, in no particular order, and possibly not even a complete list:

IAD, DCA, PHL, PIT, ORD, CLT, MCI, DAB, MIA, IAH, DFW, AUS, YUL, YYZ, YWG, BDA, HAV, SAL.

We've still got stocks to sell, and you're an idiot if you don't invest. As you can tell, we are graduates of the O'Leary School of Public Relations, and hence our motto. The customers want to fly somewhere, we want to f*** them, and the result is that everyone wants to drink. Boire, Voler, et Baiser. BoVoBa: Come fly the friendly* skies.**

*With 122 people on an E195, they better be friendly!
**Glenn Tilton, f*** you! It's our slogan now!

Anyone ever dealt with a cargo offer from cool rocks inc? This is the letter sent to me in my mailbox. Would you do it?

We have a huge shipment we need to send ASAP.

The cargo is rock, from beaches all over the world.
We are going to build a rock Island, because we can affort it.

We will offer you 1,500,000 $ for the job.

We need to ship 200,000 kg of rocks from Cape Town to Dubai.

Please report back

I might add another hub somewhere in Australia. Seems like loads are good and the routes seem to be good money makers. Lets see how it pans out.

Wifey wants me to add a hub there as well sadly YWKB is not in the game yet so I might have to defer to Melbourne. This would require WhineAir to DBA BlixaAIr using an all 707, BAC-111 and 727 fleet (just how do you say collapsing new airplane in German)

I will give this Aussie hub idea strong consideration as Zippirious T. Chimp's magic route profit calculator is very impressed

Yeah. I wonder how much the stock will jump if I started that. However, I'm waiting for the fuel to come down to $400. So far haven't seen it at that price today. My stock will probably take a slight hit as I plan to buy at least 20-30 mil lbs.

I am down to 6 million Lbs and will probably add about another 14 million Lbs when the price is right so I may have a bit of a share hit as well... magic route calculator is rarely wrong and it is going ape stool over the Aussie hub idea

You passed on the rocks??, oh my.. I keep a 747 on lease just to get that deal, I was lucky enough to get two versions on with one offer of $750K for which my 1.5 million bid was accepted and the second offer was the same as your $1.5 million offer to which my $3 million offer was accepted.

Take the rocks!! so far it was the easiest $4.5 million I have made

Hmm. I have a feeling (and HadAPheo) that there may be some serious use of multiple venture capital infusions funding the numerous fleet changes.

Heck I feel quite proud to be using my Yak 42s to rake in the dough and through some serious flight management I am nearing 100 million cash on hand. But I average $9-$10 million net a day with some days a bit better than that. I save my cash and will only expand my fleet when I am comfortable with the sale price of my aircraft, available funds and projected ROI of any changes

Heck I can make a ton of cash with my DC10-10s on high demand, short range, high frequency flights. I see no need to switch my foci and incur large costs when finding and growing profitable routes is much more rewarding
