I like the MDD planes... but... in this game the condition is really bad of them... I think I should fix them in the near future... and I hope they won't get that bad again so fast...

First day orders were a used A322, then a used A321. Decent check time remaining, acceptable age/quality, though I would've liked better. I ended up bankrupting twice on the first day, which made me lose the better A322s I had snagged each time, but such is the nature of idiocy. >.< I'm also ordering a new ATR 42/72. I noticed a competitor had ordered a cheap prop for his 3rd a/c to run a few local routes, and I thought it was an interesting strategy. So, I've decided to give it a go, seeing as my other two routes are doing well at the moment. Hope it doesn't end up putting me behind.  :-\

DC-10 for getting some long-range slots and B737-400 for domestic routes.

I think the DC-10-30 is a good compromise for seats, leasing costs and range (the alternative, A330, wouldn't allow you a second plane and has not this huge standard business/first configuration) and the 737-400 are cheap and ok until you replace it with 737NG.

Started with a B741SR and a B722Adv. Since I had a couple of short but extremely high capacity routes, I needed the B741SR. It was about 58% when I got it, which cost me delays and punctuality (mine was 51% intially), my CI dropped to -10. But after a few A & B checks, condition went up to 68% and now everything is working out.

A 757-200 (Rolls-Royce engines of course!!) which is flying the high demand routes. (Having the factory standard 15 C class seats really helped.)

Will get 8-10 of these then get 737-300s or 737-700s to get some of the lesser demand routes.

My first order were a Boeing 737-200 Adv. And since that I've ordered two more of the same type.

My plans are too use them for a year, and then replace them with newer planes, f.ex. Boeing 737-700.

For my smaller route I will use Bombardier or Saab.

Just bought another 732Adv. Doing pretty good! My DC-10 is making good profits, and so are my other two 732's.
