WorldLink will be opening at the earliest opportunity but is fully subscribed already. Our waiting list is also closed.

Maybe it's time Sami upped the limit to 30 airlines per alliance...?

Hi,

I would like to take attention to another point of view about the alliances if you dont mind.

As far as i experienced from the begginers world, the alliances are not that important and useful. I dont know if it is so difficult to edit this game programming but adding some code sharing or common base use features would be quite challenging... Otherwise I dont see any benefit to try to join into an alliance...

Am i missing something or its true?

Thanks...

Quite the contrary, I believe that a well run alliance can enhance gameplay significantly. That said, a poorly run alliance is pretty useless. Also, I agree about codesharing, etc. However, that will take a while to code.

Hello again,

Could you please mention how a well operating alliance gives advantages to the airline?

I mean for what kind of gain should i run for it?

Keep cool...

Well, a well run alliance will help you out as an airline - they'll do stuff like run stats on your airline (which tells you what you need to improve on), help you fight competition, loan out airplanes cheaply, provide financial assistance to carriers which would otherwise bankrupt, etc.

Also, there is a great social aspect to alliances.

You have 3 planes, And one of those planes is hurting you right now. Your CRJ-200.

When looking at your airline, I see that you didn't even serve your destinations daily. You serve 4 days to one city and 3 days to another. That is a No No. Always max out one thing first.

Only time you don't do max it out first is when you do a seven day rotation for long haul routes.

Based on these findings, You have to prove more that you can survive since so far, it looks like your growth will very minimal.

 If its making lots of money I dont think you should dump it, but certainly look at a more efficient aircraft to replace it when it's lease becomes due (maybe the new Embraer Series or Q400?)  ;)

Worldlink actually works as an alliance - plus a good social aspect to it too.

The proof that it worked was in the alliance challenge game, which really gelled the members.

Personally, 25 is too small an alliance - I think 30 would be better,
