Guys, be patient. In DOTM3, the production rate of the 737-3/4/5 line topped out at over 30 frames a month (34, IIRC) and we are at 17 a month now. The production rate will increase and those who are patient will get 737-300's in 1985.

Everyone should just read this post. When production rates go up there will appear new open slots. Keep an eye on the amount of orders and the x/per month production. Jump in when upgrades of production capacity is made and you will be all fine.

Another strategy is to wait for those players that purchased too many of their new 737-300's on min upfront payment to go B/K, then get their newly delivered planes from your friendly Used plane Broker :-)

I can this the 'Seagull Strategy'...as it's a bit like the Seagull forever hanging around waiting for you to drop a hot chip.

duh I'm not saying the NGX is the same as a -200Adv.

In the real world they all came off the same production line at Renton so the option to upgrade or downgrade should be available. There would/should be conditions and costs associated with any order modification.

Realistic?  Perhaps.  But it's not done in AWS.  Because, if it were, through the prescience that we have of knowing that Boeing will launch a better model (within +- 18 months) a person could simply order 100 Boeing 733s, then upgrade them to 734s when that model was launched because they knew it was going to launch within a couple years.  It's a mechanism to prevent people from locking up production queues through their ability to see through their 'crystal ball' and see the future that a person wouldn't/shouldn't have.

So, in AWS, you can only upgrade your planes to whatever models were available at the time that you placed your order.  So if you ordered 733s even when 734s were available, then you can upgrade to them if you want.  But if you were to place a large order for 733s immediately when they were launched, you would not be able to upgrade them to anything that came out in the future.

And upgrading to a whole new "model" -- like a 200Adv to an NGx -- not possible in AWS because they're ran down different production lines and are considered wholly different models.  In AWS, unlike real-life, whole different families of the 737 end up in production simultaneously.  Sometimes even 200s and 800s get produced simultaneously.  But even if they are, you can't upgrade your order between them since they're different production lines.

I've been seagulling F27's all week.

Hmm, the first bird I thought of based on the above fact pattern was not "seagull," but "vulture."  ;)

I definitely felt more like a vulture scooping up one of the world's only Tu-154s while waiting months to build my own. It's still got a long dead airline's paint job on it too.

Agreed. You can order now and your production lines start practically decades in the future. OR...you can be patient and wait for the production schedule to increase and nab new spots on the production queue in 85 when they become available. It's just a matter of being patient. If you have already reserved spots on the production line and the first one is 88 then Im afraid your stuck with it - unless you cancel and reorder (maybe?)

I thought all soviet airliners were the same dull gray color tone, or is that de-icer damage from those winter runs? 

Nyet to new paint!

Excellent with a metaphoric name on it  :)
