If I can't get my first choice, I just wing it with my 2nd or 3rd. I don't think I will ever start up a perfectly good operation just to BK it when someone else gives up. I had two choices for MT7, a middle ground airport Ive had my eye on or another fun experiment in the form of an all E-120 Tahitian airline. Right now I'm glad Tahiti won.
Becoming the biggest or most valuable isn't really an attainable dream for most people. So I like to focus on other things; mainly surviving an entire game from day one. That is my main goal in any round. Beyond that my goal is to have fun. I actually BKed the 2nd effort at my original JA6 airline even though it was still profitable after years of me not paying any attention because I just lost interest. That's why my current JA airline is the sole builder and operator of the An-26 and the LET L-410A and M.
That's right, I have twice been a launch customer to LET!
