Hi

I think this is for the forums of Jet Age 6, not an airline press release.

Any aircraft with hardly any seats will be of poor choice.  I would say min F27 size for this game.

The 106 is the Comet, and it is a decent plane if used properly. Keep them flying and plan to replace them with  the larger Caravelles, 727-100's, or 737-100/200's when they come out and be sure to have an exit plan if fuel unexpectedly stays over $60 or so for an extended period of time prior to the early 70's.

The 4C in particular is a versatile aircraft especially for bases with lower long range demand.  I ended JA5 with 38 4Cs in three class configurations which pretty much made a profit from delivery to scenario end.  More than half of them operated way over their max range (round about 3130nm if I recall) in that config using fuel stops to North America, Africa and the Far East from Glasgow and Edinburgh.

I love my brand new Comet fleet. Look at the order queue for them and you'll see just how much. Their speed and range means there's no substitute to them for me. NUMBER 2 FUEL BURNER IN THE WORLD BABY!

Ditto.

7 flying, 8 on order.  Blowing by the competition in speed.

Soon I'll be "just Jets baby."
