I think they're fine :)

I'll bet you 75% of your profit is coming from the -1000s.  :)

With the rest coming from the -700s.

I started with only 200s, but as time progressed fuel prices necessitated the larger models.  It was probably the most enjoyable airline I've had in my 2.5 years on here.

I got to say that's its kind of ridiculous that there are like five Airbus' total and over 50 747s. Who could have possibly been able to use those 747s on day one?

In a sense, the demand for new aircraft is completely artificial. People are buying planes out of desperation. If I were Embraer I would be rushing 170s and 190s to market.

And realistically what broker would be sitting on aircraft (they have to pay for) with demand this high? And vice versa what broker would be flooding the market with 747s with demand so low and knowing all the airlines can't afford.

In real life, when you go to the bank to get a loan who would plan an airline without knowing they could or could not get planes?

Not at all ridiculous if everyone buys every Airbus plane on the minute they appear to the market and 747 is not interest of anyone so they just sit there with the 'for sale' sign.

The used market has probably worked in a best way ever at large game world start in this particular game world due to fine tunings made. The system concepts will not be changed.

I agree, looks like the formula for game starts is finally getting right.

Have you seen the fuel economy of every 747 that isnt the -400???  They are terrible.  They are inefficient.  I won't use them.

You could use them now on a lease while the fuel price is low, replace them later with more efficient ER or -8.  ER is ok, -8 is pretty good.  Compared to A340, it is not bad at all.

I agree.  The used market has worked really well, and addition of AI leasing companies buying empty production slots is making it even better.

I hate when people already know that there is something more efficient coming later..  How about a world with only fantasy aircraft.. a KoenHofer G250-100 jumbo, anyone?   :laugh:

That would be nice... maybe a game world (including the prototype feature you mentioned sometimes) and some models simply don't appear. So there might be a 737-300 but no 737-400 or a 747-400ER but no 747-400 etc.
