Hiya, hows it going?
I'm playing the demo game and my flight suffers from delays from technical problems really bad, average about 10-14 minutes and now the flight was canceled, how do I fix this? I'm guessing that I have to use the maintenance action to fix it to 100% condition? currently its at 72%.
Yes. That is one (expensive) way to fix the problem. Another way to raise aircraft condition is to do a fresh "C" Check. For some reason.. C check is cheaper when the aircraft condition is below 80%.
However, I do not recommend doing either
or. At this early stage, you need it flying more then the cost of it not flying (tech or otherwise). If.. and thats a big IF
you have the extra cash to do a C check, then thats the best way to go.
"So ermm.. how do I fix this then? "
Well, theres not much you can do. The only thing I could think of doing is to do a "B" check, every two weeks. "B" checks add 10% to the aircraft condition. (70+10 =80%)
But, its best to just make do with what you have. Every thing is low right now( company/route image), so the effect is not that big. Plus, your not the only one with below avg aircraft condition. Just about everyone has a crappy plane at the start. So, ride it out and keep adding aircraft till you get enough money to afford non-planned C checks and ect.
Though I will say this, If your cancellations get counter productive, (1 every other day for a week or something) then its worth it to C check that aircraft. Plus, if your having to do that.. then you've learned a good first lesson. Dont start with an aircraft with below avg condition (<80%).
Yes, its tough if theres limited selection. But, its these "little" things that can make or break your airline at the start.
Hope this helps
