Demand problem on Tokyo and Osaka
« on: January 05, 2011, 03:58:02 PM »
I've been in Japan for a few time, but this maybe the strangest I've ever met in Japan: a packed airport with a large domestic sector can have much more demand on long hual international routes than an international only airport? ;)

here are some examples: Osaka vs Tokyo

This kind of situation usually appear on large airports, but not the biggest in the region; Tokyo usually has a bigger demand than Osaka on the biggest airports

I understand the demand of RJOO maybe created according to different figures and not real data. However I also remember in the very first game worlds in 70s and 80s (Jet age/Jet age 2), Tokyo always have a larger demand over long haul routes. I think this is more reasonable than the situation now, after considering Tokyo is much bigger than Osaka and the role of major international gateway to Japan. Is it possible to make some changes on the demand data base (now or the next world)?

(sami if you think this should be a bug, please feel free to move it, and the most important thing, fix it, no matter now or another world, thanks ;) )
