Some routes with full capacity, others with massive losses?
« on: February 24, 2010, 03:51:45 PM »
Hi there-
I temporarily leased three Boeing 377's because of their range and set them on some long routes. What is confusing me is that I run similar routes on some of the 377's e.g. BOS to LAX, and on one of them, I seem to get only 10% LF and on the other I get 80-90%. They have the same config, and they are roughly the same age. I also reduced my prices considerably, AND there is still lots of space to fill demand!
Please let me know what you think! Is it me, or is it the game?
Thanks,
Callum

what times are you flying?  If the plane takes off or lands between 2300 and 0500, they don't want to fly.

Also, if they are long flights, make sure you don't have two landing the same day.  Sometimes that happens when you do your routing.

They are on different days, but they are with a refuel stop, and have one overnight leg each. However, one leaves at 6am and the other at noon. Maybe the older the aircraft, the less willing to try, but that would not explain both!
Thanks,
Callum

what time do they arrive?

if new route, have you lowered your prices?

Really strangely, it seems to have sorted itself out guys!
Maybe it was just me being impatient as the routes hadn't had a chance to run for long enough!
Anyway, thanks for the suggestions and sorry for making such a fuss!
