Ordering aircraft with an different style of fleet.
« on: July 05, 2012, 10:28:08 PM »
Hello, I have a problem thinking how my airline is going to go, If I have 3 units of Bristol Britannia-fleet aircraft, and I need aircrafts from other fleet style for my new routes in my mind, will that "shoot" my airline to bankruptcy? Please help!

All Bristol Britannia models are considered one fleet type (unlike some other planes that have multiple different fleet types, like 737s). So you will be fine adding another fleet type.

Yes, the routes I designed is from Bergen to Amsterdam, Roma, Zurich, Vienna and Prague. And I am not buying Bristol Britannia, but some newer aircrafts.

You are obviously planning to implement a second fleet type.Second and third normally won´t kill you, unless you are not just using one aircraft per fleet type. Planning ahead is always essential in this game, look for a type that is useful for many routes, not just one or two.

and in jet age, don't be afriad to go a little too big. fuel is so cheap it makes no differance at this stage. I have some 44 seaters on routes with demand of 10 per day and they make money. Not much, but they are profitable...

That is hurting the uversupplying rule, which says you shouldn´t fill a route by more of 200%.

That rule is not touched, if only supplied by a single plane/a single daily flight. At least it won't trigger the ingame warning, and thus closure of the route by the system.

But normally, you are at 440% of supply...

There is no such rule in place. 200% on all routes..
