Even the Russian used planes are drying up...
« on: October 18, 2010, 06:22:50 PM »
only TU-134's left. I really thought I had a good strategy but I guess not. I mixed my fleet a bit with 3 Boeings and an A320, I don't know if a mixed fleet compliment so small could do much damage, although fuel prices are jumping around like a basketball. I also have 3 nonstop LAS-east coast that are consistently full. Its full all the time. My LF's are good. Sigh, what to do, what to do. :-\
P.S. Maybe I should do a little puddle hopper around the US southwest and bankrupt the other one? It may come to that. Anyone else get a bankruptcy warning? I got one today. :'(

Dude, 747sps are disappearing to JFK.  That says something.  Those things are just awful.  They are basically 767-300ers but burn triple the fuel.

Like I posted in another thread, this is the hardest time of each game world.

But looking at your airline .. cash already <-$10m .. doesn't look that good.

I know it doesn't. I'm trying to keep out of bankruptcy. So! How are those TU-134's? Go bankrupt and start again with those? I'm in a dilemma aren't I? :o

Hi L1011!

Having a brief look at your Las Vegas carrier, I would suggest to you to get your planes on shorter routes, having each 737 fly at least 5 dailies and having the 757s on routes without competition and saturating that route. One daily route during the day, and one over-night on six days. Get rid of the 737 with 19years age and you should start to make money.

people are in such a hurry to scavenge terrible old planes off the used market if people just took the time to order obscure new planes...

AN-140
AN-38
Avro RJs
Dash8s
EMB120
TU-204
Xian MA60

all are very reasonable aircraft, sure you will start a bit slower then everyone else but you will build up eventually
