This change made it impossible (for a newer/smaller airline) to use 707 on long-haul.
Flying from Auckland to destinys far away (JFK, LAX, HKG) in a good (and realistic) 6 first, 30 business and 120 economy configuration with -15% prices get a small profit, allowing to add 3-4 707 per year and pay for C-Checks with a load factor >90%.
So, why the LF is at 40% now? Yeah, only 45 CI and so on, but flying with my airline is _the only possibility to get from A to B_. 156 seats for a demand of 700.
And I must agree mfpoulsen. Changes like this shouldn't be done in a life game. It's (for me) not about the credits, but my first two strategys haven't worked and the 707 strategy was ok, it made fun to calculate with small profits etc. and now it's (nearly) gone and it wasn't my fault.
This is no offense, sami, I know you're not sitting at home and thinking about to get your users p***ed
but it's a pity to see your airline is going to hell and you can't do anything against.
