Best of luck especially to those who choose to base in LHR!  ;D

(now 7 airlines are based in LHR! See will it reach 10 or more?! Interesting.... ::) )

Maybe we should start placing bets how many days it will take before LHR runs out of slots...

I will say 15 days before we see the first 0 in any one time slot.

no way.  2255 and 0600 will be full sooner than you think.  I fear that everyone knows that LH is where all the money is in 1.2.  LHR, CDG, HKG will all be busy soon.

I was thinking full 1 hour time slot on the airport slot page.

BTW, it might be a good idea to disallow LHR as a starting base, and later, once basing limitations are removed or eliminated, maybe top 20 airports should be off limit as a starting base, but can be used as a 2nd base with unlimited number of aircraft...

I still think you should get more $$$ to start at smaller airports and less for larger ones.

I thought there used to be a 6 airline limit per airport.  I guess it was removed...  Not that I am complaining, just an observation...

DAZ- long time no see mate, how have you been ? hope all is ok.

Good luck all, Jumbo shrimps idea of no one basing at LHR and using as 2nd base sounds very good to me.

Um, you can't use LHR or any other top 20 airport as a hub as it is.

I meant not to be able to use them as a HQ, only as a secondary base.  Whether it is just LHR, top 10 or top 20 airports, it does not really matter.  It would mean that the slots at the top airports would be used up slower during the first 18 months - and slots are the #1 complaint / topic of discussion.

The reason for slower use of slots is that there would be flights only from airports where players care to set up bases (a subset of all the airports), and there would be no flights between top 20 airports for the first 18 months.  Yeah, it is an artificial limitation, but it is also artificial that at the start of the game world, none of the airports have any service...  Players start from empty airports....

Hi all, I wish the best of luck for all of you.

oh if LHR fails there is always LGW and STN :D (At the end of the day all you wanna is to get to London) :D


P.S. My very first competitive game that I get a chance to start from the beginning!

I'm pretty sure the limit is 7 airlines, at least there don't seem to be more than that anywhere I've looked.
