Author Topic: My regional airline is taking a nose dive and I need suggestions....  (Read 2252 times)

The airline is Gulf USA and based at MSY in MT3. I have few credits left, so starting over isn't really an option right now. If I were to reorganize, what would you do? The cities I serve all have more demand than I have space so I thought I'd do alright. I've lowered prices for now. I was thinking of just clearing schedules and going to big cities with the 3 ATR-500's that I have where there is still some demand. I'm in a quandry here. Help! :-\

Try to fly to as few cities as possible. Each new city increases your overhead costs like marketing and some staff levels. Also, you'll benefit more from the frequency and route image. So, choose destinations that have enough demand for multiple flights/day. But make them as short as possible, so you can fit in more flights.

About importing data to the forums, the simplest way is to take a screenshot (PrintScr-button, over the del-button) and import it to for example Paint (open paint and press Ctrl+V), then save the image and upload it here (when writing a message, press the "Additional Options"-button and search your image).

Ok, realigned routes as you suggested. We'll see what happens! Seems like a really good idea! :-\

Well, so far I'm getting deeper into the whole. -8,000,000 or thereabout.  I'm gonna try a last ditch effort to realign and see what happens. Any other suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I think if you start over because with fuel prices at 1k i dont see you making a come back but thats just me. If you do start back you need to foucs on one city at a time and meet the demand. Also if your ATR's have HD seating make sure the flight is less then 3 hours or your going to have LF problems.  Also i belive MSY is open at 0500 so start flying then, ever hour counts, also keep your later flight they looked like they were doing alright.

When you start with an ATR, why fly over 300 or 400 nm before you fly < 100 nm?  You have some destinations with 70 demand, enough for 1x a day ATR flight.  Then you have a handful between 100 and 200 nm.  And even more between 200 and 300 nm...

Try to find routes around 1 hour of flight time ... This will help you a lot ... you can make 5 trips a day with that and nice income

I have a B717 doing 6x a DAY to a destination <100nm. It racks in 1million profit a week. That's even more than some of my B737 for example.


So the basically find a route you can serve 5-6times a day with 1 aircraft.

4 trips a day is good already, but may not be enough if you look for maximum profit.
