Demand for long flights.
« on: December 12, 2010, 06:19:45 PM »
How much demand should you have for a route that is over 3,000 miles?
Thanks,

At least enough to fill your plane?

Not at all, that would be my first guess. I'm sure someone more accustomed to long haul in the older games will have a more comprehensive answer than me.

In JA I'd say 100 Pax would be the min, but as stated you obviously need to fill your planes :)

not at all!

I have some routes only with 60-77 pax or less and they are profitable.

Fuel is cheap now, so you can have long-haul flights with less pax. It might be even more profitable for you to install premium class seats and sligthly increase the price.
