The Ultimate Fleet
« on: April 08, 2010, 01:13:21 PM »
Hey people, its me again.

I've been away for some time due the bussy times, but now I'm back.
I haven't played this game very much so I am asking for some advise.

My current goal is to get my 'Ultimate Fleet'. The only question is how
to get it... With 'it' I mean the freaking much money.

My idea:

Airbus A330-200                     29x                                                                      (12/42/183)
Airbus A340-300                    8x                                                                      (12/42/213)
Airbus A340-500                  10x                                                                       (12/42/204)
Airbus A380                          8x  (With maybe 32 orders)                                     (14/76/427)
Boeing 747-400F                   6x   (Freighter if possible)                                        
Boeing 777-200                     3x                                                                       (0/42/304)
Boeing 777-200ER                  6x                                                                       (12/42/236)
Boeing 777-200LR                 10x (If avaible for order)                                          (8/42/216)
Boeing 777-300                    12x                                                                      (18/42/320)
Boeing 777-300ER                 51x                                                                      (12/42/310)

TOTAL:                              137x       (+32 order = 169x)

The cost of this fleet will be high, very high.

Now my question... Which world is the best to start this company to get this fleet and does someone
got any start tips to get after a while alot of money... like 15-20 Billion of it :)

Would love your help!


Greetings,

Tom

All i know is that the feel you are showing now will cost more with the models you have listed. cut it down so that you are using a more streamlined fleet.......here is what I suggest to save you a TON of money buying these a/c:

Airbus A330-200                     29x
Airbus A340-500                  18x
Airbus A380                          8x  (With maybe 32 orders)
Boeing 747-400ER                 6x
Boeing 777-200LR                 19x
Boeing 777-300ER                 63x

this new fleet list will save you a lot of money as you're not buying multiple variants of one aircraft model, and because the more you buy of that one type the bigger the discount.


In terms of making the money to get these aircraft: I can't help you there. All i know is that you won't have to make as much now with the above fleet. :)

Cheers,
ICEcold

The fleet in question is Emirates' current fleet :)  Quite a nice idea to try and recreate a real airline (albeit with a different name).

I would say try to be the launch customer as it will give you a significant discount.

Bravo Daveos,

It's indeed the Emirates fleet :P I love Emirates, though I'm from Holland.

I will take the fleet above which was suggested. Thanks for that.

Maybe some people some idea's which server is the best to play
and how I get that money?

Thanks!

 :laugh: Thanks guys.  I think I only know as I had a look at Emirates fleet last week, as I live near Manchester Airport and Emirates announced they will be replacing one of the 2 daily MAN-DXB 777-300s services with an A380.

Unfortunately, I don't think your idea will be possible at this moment, as all the 3 big modern worlds are nearing completion with v1.2 imminent.  

When the new worlds start are you thinking of basing in DXB?  You'll have to choose a big/high demand hub if you want a fleet like that (exclusively long-haul).  There was a carrier at LHR a few games ago that had something like 250+ exclusively long-haul aircraft (747s and 777s I think) but it's essential to grab the business/first class market (and the slots at LHR) as soon as you can to do that.  It sounds simple in theory, but rarely works in practice  :P :)  You have to be lucky/a bit wise too and hope to start at a base with minimal competition.

If you base somewhere smaller you could probably get that fleet eventually, but you'd have to build up your funds with short-haul aircraft initially.

If it is meant to be an Emirates fleet, if there was an A350 900 and a A350 1000 series

Wold you buy that as well.
Anyway its an amazing fleet

Your suggested fleet is just the same as his desired fleet. It will count the aircraft family, not individual aircraft. You are still flying 4 types of aircraft - A330/340, B777, B747 and A380.

So Intertint you can just go for what you want. With the size of your desired fleet, you are making sufficient money to cover whatever commonality cost.
