I just mssed out on a 733 and 738... :'(

I clicked to lease both at the same time and I forgot about the 1 reservation only rule. I preferred the 733 over the 738 (already got a 733) so I clicked to lease the 733 first, then the 738. Then I remembered the rule and tried to take the 733 again quickly but it was taken. >.>

So I was hoping the person who reserved it might not buy it and I kept the 738 on reservation and refreshed it. It expired, lost the 733 and the 738.

 :'( :-[ ;D

do planes appear on the used market at random times of the day, or are there set periods I should try and watch, for example just after midnight?

Is a random time, about once each two hour.

I think the market has gotten worse over the last 12 hours.

Yeah so thanks to the crap used market I have bankrupted my airline b/c I was forced to try Saab Turboprops. Now I don't even want to start over in the world b/c I know there won't be any profitable planes to use. Can't start an airline on 747s!  >:(

This is crazy. What's the point in making it so hard??!! This is really starting to really bore me and it seems a lot of people feel this way. If the players/customers of this are continuously complaining about something, maybe something should be done. Business 101. The customer is always right!

I've enjoyed the game throughly UNTIL now... what is the point of having so few used planes. I understand restricting it so that it's not an ongoing plethora of planes but come on not starting out. The North American Challenge was perfect when it came to the used market, there were enough but not so much you could base your entire company on it.

Totally agree, I don't think anyone is saying to flood the market, but make it enjoyable, this is a GAME afterall. Clearly there is a problem that many players have brought to attention. Something should be done about it. This is a great game that could be even greater.

The used market refreshes at certain random intervals (and it is actually very much higher at the first few game years than at later stage), but the basic problem is that all 500 airlines start at the same time and create a large demand for the aircraft. The planes are coming to the market every few hours or so, but they are just snapped quickly; so it seems that "there's nothing" but there's actually "a lot" but they just rotate quickly to new hands.

For improvement suggestions pls refer to feature req forum.

hehe well but it is him :) wow hi is not online right now, first time in this game i haven not seen a green dot with him.


Hi,
Just saw you were "talking" about me ... and the green dot.
Well ... for my job I am spending most of the time behind my computer. Yes, I have this game open during most of the day, but that doesn't mean that I'm playing it the whole day. Weird that I need to justify being online ...

I don't think you are understanding the point.

We aren't looking for a permanent solution, just some planes in the desert

yep there's even people who don't have money for planes just sitting on the reserved for lease page, refreshing it until the next day
