Let me get my crystal ball and predict the future...

Hmmmmmm... Hmmmmmmm. Hmmmmmm.... Krishna... Haney Haney.....

No.... can't find the exact date. But you'll be fine to order some 707's from the used market...

No significant changes til next decade. But this is only an estimate aided by previous MT worlds, which started later than this one.

Fuel prices are custom... It could happen tomorrow... or not at all.

I know but if you take a snapshot at previous MTs, fuel starts to spike in the early '00 onwards. But as it is custom driven, you have to be reserved.

Previous MT worlds started in 2000 :P

So first spike will be 2001-2002 IMO (5-6 years after the game world started)

Always nice to throw in some random numbers. Here's my guess.

12/13/1999 @ 523
11/27/2001 @ 836
6/17/2005 @ 1436

Way too many players, with way too little available planes. A good spike would be rather nice right about now!

How significant is that drop? Like 10% or even more?
