More on demand
« on: April 20, 2010, 07:24:46 PM »
Does the route demand increase during the game?

Im situated at YSSY myself and can see that the demand is too low at some routes.

Some examples are:

Sydney - Nadi=         in game 60/day             
IRL this route is flown daily by a 744, a 332 and a 738. With a seventy percent LF estimate that route should have a demand of 600/day.

Sydney - Perth=        in game 520/day
IRL flown daily by 8x738, 3x333, 1x320. Same estimate shows a demand of 1650/day.

Sydney - Beijing=      in game 100/day
IRL flown daily by one 333. realistic demand is 200/day

Sydney - Honolulu=    in game 190/day
IRL flown by 2x763= 350/day

Sydney - LA=            in game 620/day
IRL flown by 1x380/744 , 1,5 744 (one on stopover from jfk), 1/2 772 on stopover from atl. = 900/day.


If the demand will increase as we get into the 90s and 2000sm, most of these demands are probably realistic. If not, I think the demand on some routes should be changed considering that there's now 500 airlines competing.

As posted in the DOTM some time ago, this graph shows UK demand (reasonably reflective of world demand) since 1952.  The number of passengers in 1986 are probably only around 40% of those in 2002 and I'd imagine even less of those now.  The demand will increase in time :)
