Profitability - Part Two
« on: April 28, 2010, 01:19:18 AM »
So, I bankrupted with the DC-8's, and tried again with the small airport/prop plane suggestion that some people had.

This doesn't seem to be going well either... all I am doing is losing money on keeping these planes running.

Maybe I picked the wrong planes... what are the best ones to start with? Can't seem to get my head around this... demo was easy and fun but now all I do is lose money... makes me wonder if I can get my money back.

Can some of you check out my airline and see what might be wrong?

Better yet... can someone tell me step by step some suggestions for specific bases, specific aircraft, and specific routes that will make me money?

Too small aircraft. Even your props should have >50 seats.

Thought it might be better to straight-up buy four airplanes... but those maintenance costs are really insane. No way these can ever make any money. Not even sure why they are in the game.

Are the Hawker Tridents good?

The Hawker Tridents are hidden gems. They are cheap and always around for a lease of 150k/month. BUT, you have to go for the 121-3B, since has a capacity of 132 pax and range of 1200... perfect substitute for a 737-300.

Although you cant find any equipent newer than a decade, so C & D checks can be quite costly.

becareful to the C check as they might get expensive, try to lease plane with more than 10 months gap for next C check.
terminate your lease if it cost you less when you're facing C/D checks.
