Finally an ATR appears on the used market and I get the 3 minute warning thing. I try again after 2 minutes and its gone.  :(

Its not polite but he is right! You have to be realy fast to get an aircraft like that from the used market! Why don't you try ordering them factory new?

As it happens another one appeared which, I have leased and I have 2 new ones on order :). I wasn't complaining, just sharing my pain. I think its a fantastic game and I am really enjoying it.

many people are dealing with the same problem.

I would love to see what is going to happen to all of the players who leased every old 707.

My 707's are doing nicely, and I'm not planning on keeping them long. They are providing a lot of money to fuel orders for newer aircraft which will (in theory) rapidly replace them. This is a strategy that an airline in ATB2 (Diamond Air) used to start up and his value is billions over that of any other airline... I thought I'd give it a try, we'll see if it pays off.

He is right. The number of decent used aircraft has plummeted. I havent been able to get a 737 in days (real time)

If you want a 737 then you have to que in the line. I now have a few of them and in 2 years time I will have 20. Same goes for the long distance ac's. I was able to secure 3 707's and took the gamble. My A340's will arrive in two years.

 :laugh: I can laugh because this happened to me 5 times on the one occasion! I can't remember what game it was, but I remember that for one of them, I found a 747 that I needed for international routes and I wanted to see what routes I could do to organise the seating configuration. I put everything in and pressed comfirm...turns out I was over my 3 minutes and someone took it - far out i was annoyed  :laugh:
