"Note: Please choose your home base airport carefully. Number of passengers is low so choose a base with no other airlines (or only 1-2 others for a big airport).", says the game description.

Before someone "complains", a disclaimer of that (with background info): That's just a friendly tip and help for the players. As the pax demand is REALLY-REALLY different than in year 2000 and it means that even big airports cannot support 5+ airlines.

However there is no sense in restricting that via 'hard way' (ie. first come, first take principle) as that is not fair. (as it is a model of completely free market still)

 ;) I wasn't complaining, just kidding about the situation, and agree with no code restrictions.

I agree too. Anyway 1-2 airliners will move to another airport by their own decisions, that had happened almost in every game. Enjoy your game at FRA  ;)

Sooner or later people will learn the hard way. The funny thing is they alway believe it will be THEM who will be the one owning the airport  ;)

I wonder whether this is a factor of lots of people choosing BIG airports because they're the only ones with enough demand, or whether it's simply chance which has grouped airlines together. I guess as the game progresses demand will increase and this will be less of a problem for those at more minor airports.

Personally I think it's a great scenario - scheduling A320s can get a bit repetitive after a while so this game makes a nice change.
