Why Hight business demand route give me a 0% LF?
« on: February 25, 2012, 01:00:32 PM »
HI,

i'm trying to use a route with high business demand, with AC with a lot of C seats, but on these routes doesn't works even on other routes (like DBX or Perth).

Here the screen.

What is the problem here? :(

Thanks,
Roberto

You need to have realistic configuration and not all business or almost all business as you have now. Something like F8 C60 Y220 or similar will work ok. All business configurations were disabled from game engine some time ago.

"All business" is not disabled from the game engine. Rather it was tweaked so that C or F was not as profitable as before but it still is a lot profitable. What seems from the screenshot is that he can sell F seats but not C.

I've done all C + some F configuration and the route was printing money albeit it was when I was in the beginners' world. I was running a 757 between Sydney and Hong Kong.

So selling F tickets but not selling any C is awkward. What is the configuration of the seats? Maybe business seats are too tight.

And do add, you CAN do all business, but only when your route image is high, and also your company image is very high. In other words you then only can have the "premium product".

The F and C configuration is the same. Standard. Btw, now the route image is at 31 and now I've some C seats occupied (3-4).

I'll try to invest in marketing campaign before to change the seats configuration.

Errata corrige: C are Standard and F are High density!

this is even awkward but I found an explanation. Probably the competitor has configured his planes some Y and some C but no F. Since he has considerably higher RI (and maybe CI) than you he was collecting all the C whereas you snatched some F because he isn't offering any. With your CI/RI increasing you will start luring some C pax your way. By the way, if the trip is longer than a few hours make sure that comfort is OK when configuring plane. Flying first class is about feeling like a star and if the seats are too tight it would lose its meaning paying a few thousand dollars for a plane ticket so HD configured F class may be a bad idea.

There are more experienced people than me around but I suppose I got some grasp of the game and this is my 2 cents.
