What's the problem? Every player can see that the plane needs a check in a month, so what's particularly bad about this?
Not every player knows to look out for this, though, because AI brokers will never post a plane that has a D check due in less than 2 years. But a newbie player will easily fall for this trick by a human broker, which is what happened.
Indeed, caveat emptor is the rule of life : if the person who took the plane didn't notice the red warning text on the condition of it, or the over-priced deal, or the month to d-check... well, they probably wouldn't read any other warnings either.
It does assume the plane was bought/leased and not just withdrawn tho...
This response contains numerous errors. First, see above re: newbie trap. The red warning text appears only 30 days before the D check is expired; until then, it's yellow/orange only, even if the D check is only in 1.4 months as it was when FlyTo posted this plane. And there is no explicit explanation of why the number is in orange. Second, I didn't "assume" that the plane was leased; the order history clearly shows that the plane was leased by a new airline, which then BK'ed, returning the plane to FlyTO with a bunch of free money. And FlyTO promptly re-posted the plane to trap more people. Third, as already explained, it was never possible to buy the plane; only to lease it.http://www.airwaysim.com/game/Aircraft/View/History/5620/
