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.
