Hi again,

It's been like 6 months now, since this world begun.
Since there were lots of personal negative feedback (from 2-3 folks) regarding my in-game implication, basic understanding capabilities, newbie level, one month deleting my account and so on... I was curious to understand who you are,  guys,  in this game.
Here we are:

Transported passengers (last 30 days):

15.  Snowfallin     - AJK Airlines            - 142 326 (the foolish newbie)
22.  Daveos        - FlyDynasty Express  - 122 734 (the guy with the appropriate feedback & good advices) :)
41.  swiftus27     - Outback Express      - 93 148
74.  Maarten Otto - CityLinQ                - 68 209
132. Misterfeep    - AirFeep                  - 36 710
      ICEcold         - This user has no active airlines in the game
      Hwoarang      - not active in TJA

Regards,
Snow

Back to my original post at the start.

I dont know if it was co-incidence, but I landed the first 707 in the game via second-hand acft. Nice, thanks!  ;D I managed a couple of Britannias in the end too. The supply of second hand DC6s then improved, so really looking back things were fine in the end.

BUT now the supply of second hand acft seems to have dried up. I guess it had to. And with the flood of new aircraft coming it is going to start getting really interesting. All we need now is for fuel to get well over 100 and the game will really start to get shaken up!

if fuel goes over 100, quite a few of carriers will be in trouble  ;D

woah woah woah... wtf is going on here?

You can't use the amount of pax moved now as a basis for anything.  

AJK, -1,300,000, will have his 7th fleet type and get killed in commonality.   Has 9 new planes coming (9x VC10).  Monthly maint will simply bury this airlines if those other fleets are not disposed of soon.
FlyDynasty Express, -286,000, (also a FlyDynasty in Hong Kong... double account?) has 3 flight groups. Has 10 new planes coming (6x BAC 111-2 and 2x 111-4)
Outback Express, 721,000, has 1 flight group, Has 15 new planes on order (11x 727s and 4x NAMC 11)
CityLinq, -984,000, has 8 planes in 2 groups with 28 new planes on order (24x BAC 111 and 4 721s)
AirFreep, 692,000,  has 5 planes in 2 groups with 7x 707s on order

You simply can't use number of pax moved right now to compare airlines.   Many have a ton of new A/C coming in (AND first 4 months paid for in advance.    Just because many of us didn't jump on the used market early doesn't mean we aren't going to fare well.

So sorry that my, and other's, advice wasn't "Appropriate".

I have no problem with that.  Just asking the question as someone was busted doing this in an earlier game.

 :) I remember Sami re-posted the terms and conditions a while ago after the incident.  We tried it in DOTM too.

ICEcold-This user has no active airlines in the game

 ::) well of course I don't have an airline right now. I'm too busy with School and Work to worry about this right now. Also, i'm waiting for v1.2 to come out so that I can use multiple hubs. :D

don't diss me if you don't know why I do something. And just to let you know, I have been playing for two years longer than you have, so don't even think about saying that I don't know what I'm talking about. >:(

woow. why does someone do that when they know they can't? beats the heck out of me..... ::)

In all honestly, I have no love for what Snowfallin is implying here.   I started in a tough airport (closed 23 - 6) with a fleet of Convairs ONLY.  SHOCKER that I didn't move as many pax as someone who simply got everything they could off of the used market.    You're flying in the USA in a 24 hour airport....  Should I go on?

Is your CI over 60 like mine?  Are your prices set to standard and still pulling over 80% LFs?    I saw the 377s/DC6s and 7s that you hopped all over.  I simply passed on them.  I decided to As I will be getting all of my 721s here soon and my competition doesn't have one jet ordered, I should be moving much higher soon.

Correction, he just ordered some DC8-53s.  ...  A plane that has nothing to do with the 727 at all.  They will not compete against one another.  Mine dont have the range and yours are way too inefficient to fly short routes.

I was only joking - I just thought it was a coincidence that I ordered them pretty much exactly as you posted that. I completely agree with the point you were making in the above posts.

you don't need to get big quick to go up "the rankings", i bankrupted in a previous game and restarted over 50% of the way through that game, with only 24 aircraft i was more profitable than some who had over 100 jets in thier fleet.

tip 1  choose your hub very carefully, larger airports are not necessarilly the easiest in fact i would say they are the hardest.
tip 2 choose your first planes carefully pick the same fleet type (this may require patience) and choose low fuel burners to start.
tip 3 be patient, so many people i have seen go bankrupt becuase they get too many planes too soon.

this sim can be as hard or as easy as you want to make it, and remember have fun :)

Well...correct me if I'm wrong but prices are not real world in this Game and therefore there should not be a precise '70s fuel crisis...?
