As some of you already know, I'm bored of the game and shutting down Snow Globe Airlines. It was fun while it lasted.
There are still few people who haven't sold their stock. I'll just wait for them and then shut it down.

Right now there are over $2 billion in account, fuel tanks full and almost 400 routes. The fleet/routes require some optimization and changes and I don't have the time to go through with it. If someone wants to take a shot at it, let me know.

Wow that makes my $ 1 Billion in cash and moderately filled tanks down right sad. But I did make well over $ 136 million on the sale of my holdings in your airline. Which I used as partial payment on our A380 registered "Posted" (as in my land is POSTED).

I'll trade you WhineAir for Snow Globe and add a real case of Brahma and an industrial sized vat of Vodka and Tang

In other news why did they crank up the maintenance occurrence rate to "11"?, I have had more things go wrong today than any other day 19 repairs over 200 flights!!. And why does a "Major Bird Strike" on a A380 cost less to repair than a "low tire pressure" on a Yak ( I asked that before but it keeps happening)

A small 60 million Lbs fuel purchase has knocked a few cents of the share price.. not to worry as it will be back up later tonight when a small batch of flights goes on their merry way

...and I forgot to mention, sending all flights out adds about $700 mil to the account   Daily earnings can be higher if the short/medium haul routes are sent out more than once during the day.

Wow, I agree that there has been some major change to the maintenance rate. Almost every turboprop flight I launched this afternoon for FirstWorld Airlines has some kind of occurance! Seven ATR regional flights had problems, and I launched a total of 9 ATRs! I don't know whether to wait this out or dump the entire ATR fleet.

White screens everywhere, and I was charged 6 times for daily salary and maintenance today...... what the hell is going on with the AM developers using live account data to test changes/code upgrades. UGH!!

5 DC-10-10 (D-ADAO, D-ADBO, D-ADCO, D-ADDO, D-ADEO): SJO-IAD, SJO-RDU, SJO-CMW, SJO-ATL, SJO-BNA, SJO-SFB
2 A319-100CJ (D-AIRA, D-AIRB): SJO-HAM, SJO-MAD
16 ATR-42-500 (D-BATA, D-BATB, D-BATC, D-BATD, D-BATE, D-BATF, D-BATG, D-BATH, D-BATI, D-BATJ, D-BATK, D-BATL, D-BATM, D-BATN, D-BATO, D-BATP): SJO-MBJ, SJO-BOG, SJO-PTY, SJO-MGA, SJO-SAL, SJO-TGU, SJO-GUA, SJO-BZE
2 DHC-6-300 Twin Otter (D-IDHA, D-IDHB): SJO-LIR
10 CRJ-100 (D-ACRA, D-ACRB, D-ACRC, D-ACRD, D-ACRE, D-ACRF, D-ACRG, D-ACRH, D-ACRI, D-ACRJ): SJO-MIA, SJO-MEX, SJO-NAS, SJO-GYE, SJO-CCS
10 E-190-100 (D-AEMA, D-AEMB, D-AEMC, D-AEMD, D-AEME, D-AEMF, D-AEMG, D-AEMH, D-AEMI, D-AEMJ): SJO-ATL, SJO-RDU, SJO-BNA, SJO-SFB, SJO-CMW, SJO-IAD, SJO-BOG

We're close to taking delivery of D-ADCO and are also close to changing one E-190 to CMW with this widebody. The E-190 that are replaced by a DC-10-10 will successively replace the DC-9s in order of age, which means D-ADCB, currently flying SJO-BOG, will be first to go.

On another note, we will be handing out vouchers to our passengers on SJO-HAM tomorrow, as D-AIRA is due for a C-Check.

It appears that the Am developers have found and consumed the WhineAir corporate stockpile of ready made Vodka and Tang. I say this because some of my flights are taking a very long time to complete. The best example of this involves one of my oldest planes still in my fleet my beloved AS.57 Ambassador (even with 20 A380s I still keep this one old-timer flying).

I fly the Ambassador on my Humpty Dumpty Ketchup Chip Express from KBUF to YYZ normally this flight lasts between 25-35 minutes. Today it is taking 1 hour and 47 minutes. It takes me less than 1 hour and 40 minutes to make the drive from my house to the YYZ Airport Road Wendy's and that includes the boarder crossing. It appears they took the site apart tossed the pieces in the air and forgot a few bits in the reassembly

Oh well. WhineAir has added a 747-8 to our fleet to evaluate it's performance and ROI. It might be a one time addition as the flights times are a poor match to my work times . The convenience of sending 20 A380s off with two clicks and taking in $110 -130 million in the process is hard to beat. The other 82 planes in the fleet are sent off as I have time and take in a tidy $ 100 -125 million a day.

Back to the game to see what they messed up since my last visit

WhineAir after much pondering and some prodding from the peanut gallery has decided to stock pile cash for a week or so and go when we reach 2.7852 Billion in cash we will go on an aircraft adding spree the likes of which have never been seen before. Who knows where the cash will go. Several hundred Yaks?, a thousand ATRs. All I know is what ever pops into my mind will be done. As always suggestions for silly purchases will always be taken and winners will get a massive stock purchase in return

Oh course our partner airline "Bipolar" could always talk us into sanity and have us continue to add A380s

That's kinda like selling your car and buying a new one whenever you need new tires. Doesn't make much sense imo, unless you're maxed out on routes and upgrading the fleet anyway.

Eurowind update:

Primary fleet consisting of 272x 788, 50x A388, 4x 789, and 4x 748.
We also operate a mixed fleet of 42 secondary aircraft, which we will begin to phase out shortly due to pending slot shortages.

Stock valued at: $276
We still have some 300,000 shares available and our current holding would allow us to reciprocate any investments.

Currently 35 aircraft in c-check with another 19 aircraft inflight awaiting c-check  

We read on the AM board of another CEO giving his employees regular raises well above industry standard, apparently resulting in little, if any, unscheduled mx issues. Quite frankly, we're simply too lazy to keep clicking the "repair" button and have decided to test this strategy by giving our mech crew three raises. We hope they appreciate this generous offering or we'll soon be implementing Sudden's cut-n-raise deathgrip. Should this venture prove unsuccessful, our board members have also agreed to take turns pooping in our mechanics' driveways   

Over the past 8 days and with a fleet of 372 aircraft, we have earned a whopping 110 pax points. We are considering the possibility of our passengers perhaps not favoring our aircraft routing

I had a B787 that needed C-check maintenance. Today, I started the c-check prior to launching all of my flights. Maintenance screen showed the B787 was undergoing maintenance for C-check. When I launched all flights, AM LAUNCHED the flight for the one C-CHECK B787!!!! How is this possible?? To add to the obvious AM coding error, the C-CHECK B787 then had a emergency maintenance issue that required immediate and EXPENSIVE ($226,792)repair. After I already started the C-CHECK!!! I've already notified the developers of the error in their error log (which white-screened the first half-dozen times I tried to open it)

Now, the aircraft is SOMEHOW flying although I started the C-CHECK, and I've received another C-CHECK email about the exact same aircraft. WTF DEVELOPERS!!! Stop testing code changes with LIVE DATA! If this aircraft had crashed, my airline would have gone bankrupt......

I have not really experienced many problems over the transition period apart from the loss of a few thousand dollars when I was charged 4 times for the staff salary, maintenance and a parking fee as it just so happened that I had one aircraft awaiting route allocation when it happened, I usually have all my A/C allocated to a route. However I hope the check boxes are brought back soon as I don't always want to launch all my flights at once, some flights are operated 3x daily (domestic) whilst others only 2x daily (flights from Ireland to Spain).

All the best, CEO of Aer Eireann

P.S. Stock rate now $0.20, up 3c on this time yesterday get in there guys.

I have removed the DC-9s from the list, but I'm still phasing them out. I have made some change of plans and will replace the MBJ DC-9 flight first, and send the DC-10 to BNA before ATL, as BNA currently shows much more demand.

Fleet planning? Fleet planning is for dirty whores who enjoy airplanes for their phallus-like dimensions. My MD-80 fleet now exclusively flies from IAD, my East-Coast gateway. Saucayyyy.

Zippy looks at the advert for roadrunnerexpress (one word in the advert! WhieAir approves!!) In addition Zippy sees the word "Whine" in the advert and promptly raises a vodka and Tang in salute and buys an additional 116 thousand shares of Roadrunner Express Airlines (three words on the stock purchase page) for a total of 125 thousand shares. As always WhineAir invests in airlines with either high profit potential or high humor performance.


WhineAir is somewhat happy to report a fairly decent day of earnings of just a tick over 227 million with a sizable number of magnum sized planes that will go out on their late night flights.. Stock is moving up nicely as well with a gain of a bit over $ 8.00/share (with those late night winders still to go flying to far flung spots. Cash on hand is hovering at somewhere a bit south of $ 1.181 million.

Switching to IHAP mode... there will be a small weather delay in launching flights as I have to man the plows to clear the runways... well ok, I have to fire up the snow blower (NOT snow globe) and clear the driveway. I will return in Zippy mode a bit later.

Zip

Oh yes

The question is how many hours can we accumulate before we are forced to sell them

My oldest A318 elite has over 1,680 hours and still flies quite nicely . I sold a DC 10-10 that had just over 2,000 hours. I do not know if there is a magic spontaneous combustion hour mark.

HIA is changing its strategy by introducing new A330's and MD11's on routes that demand it; domestic or international. HIA will introduce the A388 out of MCO for new our service to India. Also, we will replace our DC10-30 service to SAL with a MD11ER while the DC10 will reallocated to flights between MCO-ORD.

OK people, as I'll be on the way back to Germany starting this Friday, I will be inactive on AM until at least Saturday night CET. So don't panic if you may see my stock going down for some reason.

I think you started at .81 on the stocks, and it's now up to 3.09 so hopefully I can make it worth it. I feel like a mix between Continental (Lorenzo)/United/TWA, which, as I'm sure you will appreciate, a cocktail that tastes like gasoline.

Aer Eireann Update

Company Value: $2,148,723
Stock Rate: $0.22
Fleet size: 9

ATR 42-600
EI-ATB - LDY-NCL

ATR 72-600
EI-ATC - BHD-LCY
EI-ATD - BHD-EDI

DHC-8 Q300
EI-DHA - BHD-ORK

Embraer E195
EI-MBC - DUB-LTN

Embraer E195LR
EI-MBA - DUB-ALC
EI-MBB - BHD-ALC
EI-MBD - DUB-AGP
EI-MBE - BHD-AGP

The final Fokker 70 in our fleet was phased out by an ATR 72-600 instead of an E195 as previously anticipated. A second ATR 72-600 was bought to replace the ATR 42-500 between BHD-LCY. Next steps are to introduce flights to PMI from both DUB and BHD and then to streamline our fleet by retiring the Dash 8 300 and replacing it with a 3rd ATR 72-600.

Have not updated in a couple weeks, but it will be another week before I can get to it.

Just letting everybody know, that Burton Company Airlines will be inactive for 5 days as I leave for Jamaica Saturday morning. Unless I am unable to find some Wi-Fi.

DRH Airlines Update
-----------------------------

Major expansion has taken place at our new South African Hub with creation of a domestic subsidiary operating E190 aircraft to Durban, Cape Town, Lilongwe, Windhoek and Harare and more to come.
A new 340 has been purchased to link up to this new hub from our central base at Manchester Airport.

Regarding the long haul fleet, DRH will move the 757s that ply the Trans Atlantic routes and move them to LOS and other shorter range long haul services and move the 767 and 340s and operate them to longer range services.

Manchester's Euro fleet is now all Airbus 320s with Q400s operating domestic and Irish services.

The Auckland operation has now been moved over from ATRs to Q400s.

DRH will now look at its American operation, first looking at its main hub in Chicago and is currently evaluating its options on what aircraft to use.

Sa Sa AEX Airlines

Fleet
A380-800 134
B737-800 30
A340-300 10
B757-200 12
Concorde 2
B777-200LR 10

B737-900ER 20
B747-400C 4
B777-200 10
ERJ 190-200AR 10

And finally I have the cost for the Concorde C-Check that everyone was waiting for!
EI-XXX C-Check needed $ 12,330,240
It actually doesn't cost as much as some people say, 15,000,000, 16,000,000, 30,000,000 and someone even told me 35,000,000! Obviously those people who told me 30,000,000 and 35,000,000 don't even have a clue because they either buy the Concorde and sell it after one flight or sell it without flying just to earn the achievement. For me it's not about the money and how high you rank, it's how you manage your airline without losing money. I have a relatively low staff 6383 in my airline with a fleet of 392 compared with one of my rival airline with 8553 staff anda fleet of 405.

So they're using the older Russian airplanes which uses 4 pilots, 15 F/A's, 15 mechanics, and 20 cleaning crew per flight, while you're using the newest aircraft in the fleet that uses less? Sounds better business.

My goal was a very fuel efficient fleet with a low staff that can make good profits with a realastic fleet or something close, not like those people with a whole bunch of A380. I think I have achieved my goal at the moment. Now I need to think, should I have a fleet of 150 or 200 A380? I think 150 is much easier because I love my current fleet. It will be a tough decision to make because I'm near the 401 limit and I want to have 150 A380 in my fleet. I know I have to sell a few of my narrowbodies because I have to many of them. I think it will be the 737's that is more likely to be sold.

HIA and Boeing announce an order for 10 773LR a/c to replace A343E a/c with options for 20 a/c. HIA will take delivery of its 100th A333IGW tomorrow. HIA is proud to order from Boeing. Boeing has asked HIA to consider replacing its A333IGW fleet 772ER a/c but it is likely that HIA will stick to the A333IGW for now.
