Aircrafts for routes over 800 NM
« on: October 21, 2010, 11:21:46 PM »

 Hi guys

 Please, I have a fleet of bombardier CRJ ( 200 and 900 ) and I have a doubt. What is a good plane to do routes over 700 NM and a seat limit of 100 pax?? The CRJ or Embraer 170-190 are good to do that??
 In my last game  i try with the boeing 717 but it's not good for this aplication.

 Thanks

The E195s and F100s (and I suppose the CRJ1000, though I don't think I've ever seen anyone using that one) have a built in advantage over the 717 as they use less expensive pilots.  They also generally cost a bit less.  In my experience the F100s and E195s are both fine for flights over 700NM.

Never fly the CRJ100 or 200 unless gas is really cheap AND you own the a/c.

Are any of the regional jets easily profitable? In know they are very common in the real world, but I've never had any luck with them in AWS. The ERJ145 seems nice but I notice there aren't many orders for them. This makes me wonder if they are difficult to turn a profit. I thought I may order several to expand until the wait for larger planes (737s etc) declines. Any advice?

well in an earlier game (DOTM) I operated a fleet of 20 ERJ-145's from my base in Melbourne (game version 1.1) and they seemed profitable to me (with upwards of $400,000 per plane :o)

The way I see it the plane is as only as good as the person flying it. Some people can get them to work, based on experience others just dont even try.

Also, you can be very competitive with larger airlines by flying Ejets anf Fokkers. I tried it once and managed to run a 30+ boeing fleet airline out with only 20 E190s. There is more to the aviation industry then Boeing and Airbus.

I agree
I had worked a fleet of 30 Ejets ( 195 and 190 ) in the last game and they are very profitable, but only in routes less than 1000 NM. In routes over 1000 NM the profit is not very high.

But they are perfect, in my opinion are the best planes to start a airline,if you don't have much money cause they are very cheap in the maitenance and the cost to lease.

I had 20 owned E-jets in MT1 and I could only barely make a profit when fuel price reach $800-900. But I've to said I use them to fly routes over 1500nm ;)

maybe it can work better with shorter ranges

Even at the highest fuel price ($1300) CS100, CS300 kept profitability, although those two regional jets are categorized under "large aircraft" and not going to be sold until...2013?? (same as 712, so that replacing 712 or 736 -> CS100 or CS300 is an alternative option).

If you consider not flying over 800-1000NM range in the future (when the fuel price will be over $1000 level), E195 really is an excellent choice.
