everybody starts with the same money. It's about the choices you make what to do with it that makes a difference.

I always seem to have a problem when I start out, I never know what the right choices in plane and destinations are.

During the start of the game you should have no competition, but still the LF will be low (red/yellow) in first several weeks. Low LF is because low CI/RI. This first several weeks aren't able to make real money for future expansion. Be patient for a month, if your choice of aircraft, scheduling, destinations are all "correct" (because in AWS there are no true correctness); you should make real money :) (profit margin upto 10-20%) Then you can do your expansion, lease another plane and so on.

Thanks, I am getting closer to making profit but this is before any leases kick in. Currently have 2 short range planes (900 to 1200) which good fuel eco, load factors are slowly rising.

Guess it's trial and error until I get it right.. lol

Hi,

It has already been explained, but when you start, think about the future of your airline and choose a fleet type according to your plans. Then start flying to 1 destination at first, as much as possible in a day. 4 or 5 times is very good, and you will make really good money with this recipe  8)

Then do the same with your second, third,... aircraft...

good luck

Unless you somehow manage to find a base in a large city that hasnt' already been completely overrun that's pretty difficult though.

Your Route image will rise slowly so your LF will improve slowly.

I might have to try this method, At the moment I am so close to breaking even each week flying to different places.

this is a big no-no here in AWS. the general rule is to fly as few destinations as possible with the biggest number of flights possible. opening a new route to a new destination costs money (you need to hire staff at that destination) so when you open a route you should make it profitable by flying it as often as possible (at least every day of the week).

Hi,

Correct me if i am wrong but flying to 2 destinations will cost your more in marketing than flying to only one ;)

as far as i know, how much you spend on marketing depends entirely on you, not on the number of destinations. you may opt to spend zero;)

Sort of.

Which campaigns you start is up to you. But a given campaign will increase in cost as you fly to more airports, and it will take more $ per week to increase your CI as you airline expands.
