Fleet commonality
« on: August 03, 2009, 07:25:28 PM »
In my fleet I have 2 - Boeing 737-100/200, 1 - Boeing 737-300/400/500 and pay about 180.000$ for the first, and about 170.000$ for second. And after I lease Fokker 50, mounthly price fo Boeing fleets increases to 597.000$ for the first and  508 534$ for the second. Why? If i lease another fleet aircrafts, the price increase for all my fleets? I think, that another fleet price just adds to non-changeble current fleets prices. Thanks

Sorry, I did not totally get your point.

1. You leased the two Boeings at the reported lease prices. These haven't changed, right?
2. You leased a Fokker.
3. The lease prices for other new/used Boeings went up?

Thanks.

No, lease prices didn't change. Changed the monthly Fleet commonality price(Administrative costs / month, Fixed maintenance costs / month, Crew training / month )

Ah ok, thanks. Yes that occurs once you start flying different planes. It has a very significant impact especially at the beginning of the game with a small fleet. And this is in fact closely related to reality since your staff needs to have parts available for two totally different a/c not to mention the staff training to handle those planes. I cannot say that the exact increase you reported is unusual or not, but the surge in costs sounds feasible to me for the moment. Sorry, not to give you a better answer...

Thanks a lot!!!! I think it's very close to real life! I only want to understand that another fleet in your airline - increases Fleet commonality charges in every fleet you already had! Thanks

I don't know how realistic the division of the costs amongst fleet types is, but i think it is very realistic that costs skyrocket with a new type introduced.

I've had that happen in Jet Age #2. I was running an 8-type airline just fine, then the introduction of the ninth type almost drove me bankrupt, by doubling staff training and other costs. I had to ground two perfectly good older types of aircraft immediately to save the airline. I may even consider grounding a third type.

Quick question:

If you have one airplane and then lease a second one that is in the same fleet type, but has different engines, how much can this affect commonality costs?

Costs will go up as well, but not as strongly as with a different airplane type. I cannot give you a percentage, because it of course depends on the plane. And it is a different impact if you have one 737 on GE and one 727 on RR than if you have one 737 on GE and one 777 on RR.
