i was waking up early to hog slots
no... just a joke.
but real: you have to fight very hard to get slots. thats in jetage
and in my opinion, this problem only exists in jetage. i dont speak about LHR or some
other airports in ATB/AC. but in jetage you make good profits also with a LF of 30%.
it is unbelievable, and i normally never say something nice to sami, but this time, i must
say: wow. he did a great job because with his calculations of fuelprice ->demand->other costs
he matched nearly 90% the airline reality in this time (the 70s)
what i want to say, and for me personally i have said what i wanted to say:
everything must be decided carefully and personally.
for example: the situation in atlanta is that, that there are absolutely not enough slots.
IF there would be enough slots, you would see a really nice fight between me and my competitor.
i never, absolutely never put some 7pax a/c on a route with a demand of 1000 to safe slots.
my competitor did in the past: he has had a fleet of (sorry for that, but it is the truth) real crap.
we all were wondering how he can survive with a fleet of 15 (!!!) different types. but is it slotwhoring ?
thats the question.
1) yes it is: he only buyed this used a/c (crap) to safe slots and nobody is able to use them in the future
2) no: he just wants to expand fast and serve all airports
3) nobody knows, it could be 1) or 2)
you know what i mean ?
honestly. the rules must be in every way more explicit. you always say "i cannot explain it is too much....." but the problem is, that some people do not know how and what to do. and this makes people really angry. i am the best example. normally i am not that bad. you can have a lot of fun with me but i hate it, if there are things not clear. and the manual is absolutely not enough for a game like this.
everybody has his opinion in our free world.
i have mine, others have other opinion.
but when i read in globalsky, "YES HE IS GONE..." then do not wonder,why i have left this alliance.
and by the way to this player who wrote it after i have left: i promise you. you will have fun in the next atb or jetage if you join.
