Hated by most
« on: June 01, 2010, 12:48:38 PM »
 I am just curious. Will the CRJ be introduced to the game? The CRJ100 has EIS around summer 1991 so it is about time the company behind the aircrafts makes an announcement.
 The new rules certainly doesn't make it easier to operate in Africa. To few markets, or to low capacity at the existing markets makes an aircraft like the CRJ ( I like the Embraer 145 more) necessary. It would have helped has it still benn possible to fly A-B-C-A and drop off pax and B and C and pick up PAX at B bound for destination A and the same at destination C

You got to get used to it in games without multileg route. Come out with some new strategy to overcome it. And maybe sami will update the system when he got something new and suit both multileg and multibase system.

 I have covered pretty much all routes out of my hub. At least routes with some demand. But flying 120seaters where there is a demand for 40-50 seats is just not realistic. And I remember the Crj being in another game, which is why I asked.

Well if you ask really really really nice I can make a similar thread about you  ;D

 I hope so. It will make a lot more routes more possible.

CRJ 100s are only good if you own them.

You will LOSE money if you lease them. 

If there is any fuel price jump like there is now, Anything smaller than a CRJ700/900 will become a loser for you.

I have lost many an airline to it.

Dash 8 - 300 and 400 should be used on all of these if routes are or under 600 miles.   Just make SURE you change the seating from high density to standard.  You lose only a handful of seats and the pax dont hate you for it.

That's why the aircrafts is hated. It is not very capable. But the only option for what the routes I currently can't serve.

 Routes within 600 nm are served. I need more range, capacity however is perfect

You could always have a 737-500 with a premium setup.  It would be 3/80 that way.  
A F.28 or F70/100 would also work. 

Its really up to you.  The CRJs just arent as good as we all hope when we order them.

 I know. I operated them in another game. They made a profit but not much.
 I strive to keep it simple. Adding F100, or if in the game later on the F70, or B737 will just add costs. Fokkers are to big or I can use my maddogs on most routes. Same goes for B737. And I don't like 737's. But that is just a real world thing. I want to keep it to 3 or max 4 types. 1 prop, a small jet, medium-large jet and long range jet

Then why did you start this thread again?

You are flying 4 flight groups now.  
You have orders out there for many more.  I will assume that you are using them to lease out later.
Either you change out your fleet (perhaps stop leasing MD80s) in order to handle the ~1000nm ~60pax market or you add another type to your fleet.

Simple, the aircrafts that can handle the smaller market can't handle the bigger markets and markets slightly further away. So there is a need for me to have the small jet. Or fly too large aircrafts to too many destinations where there is no need for all the seats. That way I will loose money. Using CRJ's may, and I write MAY, allow me to fly to smaller destinations. Maybe I will not make much money. But hey, it is a game.

I've made a try in MT1, for both of them are owned, a Q400 with tech. stop can earn more money than a E-170 with direct flight ;) In high fuel price time E-jets can only barely earn money when Q400 can still have a profit of 200k

In this game the leasing system, ticket system and fuel burn setting seems does not in favor with regional jets ;)

I made a killing with E-Jets at the end of MT#1 when fuel was hitting 1000 USD. I was using 175/195 if that makes a difference and I suppose it was mainly the 195s that raked it in.

 finally they are here.  Yes some hate them.  The Crj100 is quite succesful with me. More profitable than some of my B757's. Ok, I own my CRJ's. But making more than 100.000 profit a week. Now looking forward to see the 319LR in the game.....

I've also found that with CRJ's, don't ever discount your fares. You're dead meat for sure. Gave a 5% discount on some routes with CRJ's and the revenue loss hit really hard, so I put every thing back to the default price with those planes. Whew!
