You are correct in your assumptions.  Adding any other type automatically increases costs across all your fleet.

yes , as Dave said. But try to find a regional aircraft with manyy sub types in same fleet group.

ATR(42/72)
Dash 8 (100/200/300)
Fokker
Bombardier (CRJ 100/200/700/900)
Embraer (ERJ 135/145/175/195)

few to name, This gives you flexiblity between diff seats and diff range. Hope this answer helps you.

cheers

Saab 2000 has it's features.... On short legs it beats a jet AC, and it's a cheap type in operation.

Kinda funky cus the 2000 is essentially a stretched 340 with newer engines....

Quite much more than just that actually.

(a plane ahead of its time and it didn't succeed unfortunately..)

if you're gonna get technical then the 737 NG and Classics aren't very common either.

my point is just, how deep and technical do you wanna go in this game in terms of fleet commonality?

737 oldgen and newgen are not in the same fleet group (due to diff. cruise speed etc.). Or did I miss what your point was?

No not really, you pretty much answered it. :)
So it's pretty strict about what models are considered "common" within fleet commonality.

Which is realistic I suppose. Or close enough. :)

btw, a friend of a friend flew the 2000 and he said it's a very nice bird.

Yes the commonality is considered also per aircraft speed as they need to match as the scheduling goes by fleet groups. Thus they are different.

Separate "scheduling fleet groups" and "training/maintenance fleet groups" could be introduced later since it would make it more realistic.
