I missed the way cool $100 per 1,000 Lbs, but in honor of your wonderful buy I just purchased 1 Lbs of fuel at $ 1,300.00 per 1,000 Lbs!!. I was going to splurge and buy 2 Lbs but I did not want to appear to be to lavish in my celebration

333 is about 1.2 Million

Slapper Airlines due to concern with problems with the worldwide ATC system has not conducted upgrades today as some aircraft had been left out of position by the ATC problems.

However, we have added two Airbus 330-300's on new routes to Edmonton, Canada and Montego Bay, Jamaica. We have also added 100M Lbs of fuel and re-resourced our advertising programme. We have $140M cash in hand.

The removal of all but a handful of AT7's from routes has now been completed, we are now in the process of upgrading a number of secondary routes served by Embraer 190's to Airbus 320's and displacing those 190's to European tertiary routes and to the focus cities at Gatwick and Edinburgh.

We hope to add our new focus city at Berlin Tegel with 10 320's on Monday as well as purchasing 2-3 more longhaul planes and having come nearer to completion of the upgrade programme.

Our share price is just over $30 and our target for Monday is $35, we believe we will make this.

It's been a long time since my last update, so here is an overview of Normandie Airlines.

Our development is going well. We bought our very first A380 and put it on the CDG-MEL route.

We also completed our routes to New Zealand from the Hong-Kong base (Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch, all operated with A333s).

Our main development were long-hauls flights from CDG. Routes to the French Carribean Islands have been opened (Guadeloupe and Martinique). We also are very much present in Mexico with routes to Guadalajara, Mexico City, Puebla and Cancun. Our next and probably last destination to Mexico will be Acapulco.

Our next target will be Central and South America. Our first route to Central America has been opened today (San Salvador).

Fleet:

1 x A380-800
17 x A330-300
10 x A321-200
10 x B787-800
8 x B757-300
14 x 737-900
7 x B777-200
16 x ERJ 190-200

Routes:

Main Hub: CDG
Focus cities: YUL and HKG



Stock rate is @ $29,11
Company value is $291,109,653
Fuel tank is 100,099,041 Lbs

Investors are more than welcome!

WhineAir is extremely pleased to announce that yesterday our 6th A380 joined our fleet and as promised it's registration honours Snow Globe airlines with the registration SnowG. I was hoping for something better but being an old and feeble chimp hindered my registration creating capabilities.

In other news WhineAir is celebrating the return of our A380 registration "BPolar". The airplane disappeared into thin air during a flight last night. Then magically when I awoke this morning the plane had reappeared in the flight list still flying on it's way to a lovely airport.

Our next A380 will be launched sometime on Saturday and will honour a yet to be determined A.netter's airline.

The management at BiPolar Airlines is grateful for the honor and in return, we have produced a video detailing the groundbreaking contributions to the industry made by Whine Air.

http://bit.ly/5i5gak

Again, thank you for such a prestigious honour.

In other BiPolar Airlines news, we have determined that we would get a greater return on our investment if we were to turn our IL-86 into tin cans and sell them to the brewers of Brahma Beer.

Additionally, management has relaxed it's zero tolerance policy on all things French and purchased one Airbus A380 for use on the "10 Gallon Run" between DFW and DAL. Ocassionally, if the pilot is in the mood he may make a detour to Gilley's and allow all passengers a ride on the mechanical bull.

BiPolar Airlines currently has a fleet of 68 aircraft and out stock was recently recognized by PennyStockChaser.com as one to watch.

And our current route map:

It's 737s, 747s and 380s. Not 737's, 747's and 380's. Learn to use the apostrophe for crying out loud.

Slapper Airlines has just carried its 5 millionth passenger, Ms Rosa Klebb of Sovietsk was on board our Airbus 320 service from Kaliningrad, Russia to Slapper's Birmingham hub. She was on her way to visit her sister, Mrs Ivy Trellis of Prestatyn, Wales. Ms Klebb was given a gift voucher for the Slapper Store, a chauffeur driven Rolls-Royce to her Sisters and five free return tickets anywhere in the Slapper System.

Insiders report that Slapper is making its targets very nicely and that by Monday will be ready for a further long-haul expansion and the establishment of the Berlin Tegel focus city.

WhineAir has launched our 7th A380!, we had originally planned to honor Bipolar and use the registration "Calan" but our legal department suggested that we avoid using a trade name drug.... instead we have gone with the always popular "Manic" which manages to honor Bipolar quite nicely.

Sometime either late Monday or early Tuesday we paln on launcing our 8th A380 which will carry a registration that will in honor yet another one of a.nets finest virtual airlines. ( I just have to pick out the lucky/unlucky target)

I am looking into installing refurbished self-sealing fuel cells into our lav tanks to reduce the number of "lav fluid leaks" that have been keeping our staff quite busy

I'm not sure if there's anyone here who fly the Concorde for so many hours like me. Most people sell it after just one flight or sell it without flying just to get the achievement. I have never sold any of my planes except for that B738 that you had in the start. I have 299 a/c in my fleet at the moment and it will be 300 or 301 later in the day.

European Cityhopper Airlines has a new strategy:

We will have only 6 bases, all of them in Germany at: Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf, Stuttgart, Hamburg, and Nuremberg.

At each base we will have one each of the following aircraft:

A318
A319
A320
A321
A340
B787
MD11

Each aircraft will fly to the same destination, for example the A318s will fly:

Frankfurt - Helsinki
Munich - Helsinki
Dusseldorf - Helsinki
Stuttgart - Helsinki
Hamburg - Helsinki
Nuremberg - Helsinki

We will soon add a B747 to each base, followed by B777s.

I have changed it up as demand dictates, but I have also noticed some routes will drop in demand for a bit and eventually come back to the 90%s.


I got bored last night and blew nearly $200,000,000 on 15 new B737-900ERs and 2 A321s. I now have 67 active routes and my fleet consists of:
A333 - 10
A322 - 30
A346 - 5
B739 - 15
B744ER - 2
B773ER - 5

All my routes, except 2, are in need of advertising. I really want to fly them right now but I am waiting for the super cheap advertising coming up here in the next couple of hours. I am considering selling the 747s, I'm not too much of a fan.

DRH are replacing the old, but well running Dassault Mercure aircraft on routes with between 80% and 90% load factors with DC9-50s, and all other routes with 737 aircraft. Once this conversion is completed it will be time to save save save and purchase some long haul aircraft

It's at $400 for the next 30 minutes apparently?

Very strange. It's never that high at all.

I should probably do a big update, but here's the gist of my fleet now.

Bought a pair of IL86s, they sucked so I sold them for 5 MD90s for local rounds around Asia. I bought 2 more A333ERs and a couple more B767s, and I broke the $10 share price mark. $5mil cash in hand, 750 mill Lbs in the tank. I'll do a real breakdown tomorrow.

As other members have said, the Concorde is too expensive and brings in laughable revenue. I'm now simplifying my fleet to two types: A380 and Il-96-400. In my opinion these are the moneymakers for almost any route. I will be getting rid of all the A319, A321 and B788. A320 are already gone. My plan is to stop adjusting routes based on demand and just launch a route to every capital in the world from YYZ. For anything below 10,000km I'll be sending the Ilyushin, otherwise its the WhaleJet. I'm halfway done through Europe so I hope I'll start a new continent next week.

Slapper Airlines is pleased to announce its latest round of expansion.

Slapper has purchased its first Boeing 777-300ER, which it has deployed on the Birmingham-Hong Kong route, Slapper sees a small fleet of these in the operation for longer routes, Slapper hopes to extend this route to SYD in time for Mardi Gras. Slapper has also purchased 5 Airbus 330-300's, three of these were used to upgrade high performing 332 routes and two for new routes to Mexico and the USA. The 330-200's freed up were deployed on new routes to Rio, St Kitts and to Tokyo Haneda.

Slapper has also started its Berlin focus city with 10 routes on Airbus 320 aircraft mainly to high yield sunshine and tourism destinations. Slapper has also added an additional eight Airbus 320's to it's Birmingham hub mainly for longer routes and sunshine destinations. You can get a slapper to most major Spanish holiday destinations now.

Slapper has completed its fleet upgrade programme for the moment, all secondary cities with a decent yield and all primary cities out of BHX are now served by Airbus 320 aircraft, the remaining Embraer 190's have been placed on high yield tertiary routes or moved to the LGW or EDI focus cities.

Slapper's fleet now consists of 1 77W, 12 333, 12 332, 50 321, 100 320, 70 191 and 12 AT7 for a total of 257 aircraft. Our share price is just over $37 (again exceeding targets) and our target for next Monday is $47.50. Shares are still available. For the next week, Slapper will be building cash and fuel reserves up. All routes are advertised and we have over 400M lbs of fuel in hand and $30M in cash.

Quoting B747forever (Reply 230):
Wow! And I am trying to keep it to only 3-4 types of aircraft.

Do you change your route as demand decreases or do you keep flying the same route all the time?

I did change the route at the start when the demand decreased. But now I have everything running smoothly and I it doesn't seem to be worthwhile to change the route just to get a extra few $$. Except for the Concorde, you'll be running at a lost if you don't change routes when demand decreses.

One more flight left on my Concorde until its due for a C-Check!  Big grin
Some people say a C-Check on a Concorde costs around 6.5 million which is the cost of the A380 and one even said it will cost 15 million.
I will announce the mystery price later today!

True. The demand always rise and fall, not worth to change it all the time.

Thanks to airliners.net for showing me this game! i am a long time Facebook user and never knew till this morning that this game exists!

My airline is called Aer Eireann and flies from DUB and BHD to destinations in the UK, however I am now about $90,000 in the red due to an incident on board the inaugural flight of my new DUB - LPL route using the ATR 42 -500.

Current fleet:

1 ATR 42 - 500 on DUB - LPL
1 B737-800 on DUB - STN (not my choice of plane, it was default)
1 DHC-8 Q200 on BHD - ORK

A few pointers.

Sell that default 738, it's not worth it. Use the money to buy the less expensive 735, or ERJ 190-200.

Never buy fuel at anything higher than $400 per 1000 LBS

If you can spare a few bucks, you should use the increase option ONCE, early on.

This game works very very slow and can get frustrating at times, but if you focus and make smart decisions, it can be fun.

I started back in late October last year and I now have a fleet of 212 aircraft
102 737-800 (New delivery every week)
37 A330-300 (with an option for 25 additional)
37 757-300 (with an option for 20 additional)
8 747-400
17 777-200
11 ERJ 190-200

If you can manage to get your airline out of the red, I will buy 90,000 shares of your stock

FUEL AT $400 RIGHT NOW

Get your chequebooks out CEOs! Just bought 15 million pounds of fuel, my 4th 753 will have to wait for another day or so!

AERA AIRLINES UPDATE



Aera Airlines, Ireland's newest airline, has just completed its replacement of all ATR 42s with brand new ERJ 190-200s. This brings out fleet total to 35 - 32 ERJ 190s and 3 B757-300s. Our next move will be rapid expansion of our long-haul fleet to serve the Middle-East and Asia. From our hub in DUB, we currently serve IAD, JFK and ORD. Share price recently broke through the $1.00 mark and is rising rapidly. Investors are cordially invited to join with us as we revolutionise Irish air travel.

Quoting FuturePilot16 (Reply 243):

Thanks for the pointers there, I may just sell the default 737, it doesn't fit in with my current regional turbo prop fleet. My idea is to start small and eventually mirror EI's US route network focussing on the Irish diaspora market whilst keeping some of my UK routes going with substantial European routes to Brussels, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and so on. Maybe also set up a holiday market in the Canary/Balearic islands and Greece and perhaps once I have the US market open (with A330's?) get the Caribbean going with an inaugural DUB or BFS to SXM!!

Would you suggest that starting with small, low capacity airplanes is a good idea?

Oh and I am Scottish so I will always prefer Airbus products to their Boeing rivals, sorry!

Perhaps you could talk me into the Triple 7!!

You'll find that more of the Boeing aircraft models are less costly to purchase, more efficient and better profit makers than their Airbus counterparts.

The A321 works very well in this game though... I'll give Airbus that one!  Wink

You can't beat the 753 in terms of purchase price, range, efficiency & economics though...  Smile

Indeed! I wanted to fly Airbus-only as well, but they are just too expensive when you begin. I started my long-haul flights with 753s and a bit later with 787-800s, which are very good value for money.

Now I have 2 A380-800s, 19 A330-300s and 12 A321-200s, but I still have my Boeings  Smile

Same here... I ended up with 50 753s in the fleet alongside the 20 788s.  Smile

I say 'ended up' because my 'alias/secondary' account on Facebook got disabled (for reasons unknown and not disclosed) and now I can't access my main airline... so now working on another one I had started on my main account back in the day. It's not nearly as big... but 753s are rolling into the fleet at a rate of 3 per day, so I will be back in the saddle in no time!

I got some bad news! I know alot of people here is waiting on my announcement, the cost of a C-check for Concorde. I didn't notice it in the maintenance screen and I hit the start all button. Just found out that I've put my concorde in for a C-check a couple of hours ago. Didn't even notice the Concorde went into C-Check. I was waiting for it to arrive but I couldn't find it. only found out it was in the C-Checking screen.

Apologies!
