So, I just started up in MW#2 after buying 50 credits, then watching the player count. It was at 500/500 for days, then today I finally saw the magic "499/500"... jumped at the chance to get into it, and got it! Woohoo!
So, I went ahead and based myself in Denver, and leased myself a DC-8-53, and I have a second DC-8-53 being delivered in a couple weeks.
Having about $1.4M left after those two Douglas aircrafts, I paid down the starting loan by $1M.
While "Douglas One" is in the shop bringing the condition up to 90%, I set up a Denver/Gatwick route, flying every day except Sunday (Sunday is my A/B check day). 3 weeks out of the month, I have her flying out to Seattle & back, then to Detroit and back on Sundays.
"Douglas Two", when delivered, is set up to go into service flying Denver to Orlando, Boston, and Salt Lake City.
Prices are knocked down about an average of $30 from the default price.
What I am wondering, is while I did okay in the demo game, I can't help but wonder if my routing is smart? Can ya'll share better recommendations on my route set-up?
I am still a couple of days away before Douglas One comes out of the shop and goes flying, so we'll see how the profitability and loads look later on... but just wondered if I could get some insight.
Also, I read something about someone converting to all-business class for better profitability... is this true?
