Expand or concentrate route network?
« on: April 30, 2010, 06:21:09 PM »
Hi! I'm a bit of a newbie (tried once but got bankrupt) and i'm wondering now if i should expand my route network or just concentrate on these large airports with high demand (and no other airliner than me for right now)?

I was wondering becouse, do the passengers like a wide route network or doesn't it matter. I'm also wondering a thing, if the demand is higher than whats available, why do i only get about 50% on these routes. Shouldn't there be 100% until i get company from another airliner?

Things are slow and hard these days, so LF will rise eventually. regarding growing , yes its better to grow but moderatley. See your fianances too :)

get planes which have more than 6-7 months for C checks and bove 70-75% conditions.  Dont grow too fast, but also defend your ground when needed.

Hope this helps

Your load %'s tend to grow with your company image, so make sure you have marketing campaigns in place to help increase your image.

it is my belief that you always always always always max out a line first... UNLESS you need to grab open slots at HK/LHR... That's about the only exception to the rule.

Grow steadily. Buy planes one at a time and only when you're making money. Every time you buy a plane check it is feasible and you are still making money before you invest in another. Might not be the fastest way but it has worked for me in previous games.

Also, rather than flying loads of routes once, I'd suggest flying the most popular routes several times a day - you will fly the same number of seats but over less routes so your overhead costs like staff and marketing will be less. Also RI will build quicker on it.
