Looks like there are quite a few aircraft in the storage, and AI leasing companies are ordering more aircraft (from slots not available to players)...

There are many A320series, 752, 737classic etc. on the used market for several minutes. Where are all those people complaining there are no aircraft available? I'm sure the aircraft are gone within the next hour and in 61 minutes they log in and complain again :D


Not to be a total hater but this is coming from the other extreme.  Curse, you are well known as the F5 get-anything guru of this game.

In Curse Russia, used aircraft refreshes you!

I counted some 4 or 5 pages of Boeing alone..  :P   (mainly longhaul, but still ... far from a "total joke".)

Personally I think the west coast of North America and Hawaii have the most challenging time. It seems all the planes are released while we are asleep and wake up trying all day to at least lease one aircraft. I'm not going to say it happens all the time, but it happens alot more than not.

I was able to grab three 737-400's with only a little extra work, maybe 45 minutes total.  And that's including passing on a couple of real bad deals that others made in haste.  Now it's time to make some money.   ;D

No they aren't. It is random and frequent. (can it just be that you guys are awake at the same time and grabbing the planes from the market instantly? ..making it look like "there are no planes")

..just a few entries from the log of this game world about a/c market update (though from daytime; my time; but it's the same all the way 24/7). Frequency of updates depends on the number of players and game world "age" (=days from world start; at beginning it's more frequent).

And before anyone tries to look at the times and make out a pattern ... I can save time and say that you can't; it's random (between a defined maximum and minimum update interval; which both again depend on the game world age and player count). Roughly it's between 5 minutes and 3 hours between each update. ;)

I got 4 B737-300 since the first day without any difficulty. And now I see more than 30 A319/320/321 available.

Too early for used market issues - most players don't have enough cash flow yet...

Purse is Curse. He posted a "hypothetical" question about a player called "Purse" obviously referring to himself, then changed his username to Purse for the launch of MT5  ;D
