I'm wondering if there is any point in operating new planes.
I recently leased four brand new 737 700s to replace perfectly good middle aged 300 series 737s and to be honest its probably the worst decision I have made in this game.
I'm tied into these things for three years, they cost three times more than the older planes, have the same capacity yet there is actually no benefit in operating newer planes, other than slightly lower average fleet age and cheaper maintenance.
They make no difference to CI, in fact I would have rather have spent the money on marketing
So now I'm having to think pretty quickly what to do with these things, I'm tempted to swallow $24m to get rid of them and lease back some 10 year old 737 300s at least then it will sort things quickly....
Surely something could be added to this sim to 'reward' players that invest in newer aircraft, other wise a top tip for everyone is just keep renewing a second hand fleet keeping the average aircraft age to around 8 years
you may as well......
