Will we ever have travel agents
« on: December 10, 2012, 02:55:48 PM »
I have used airway Sim for a little while and yesterday was playing a airline management game on my ipod and noticed you can buy travel agents. I would like to know if this will ever be available to airway sim.

Change the structure of fare's maybe. Maybe touroperating fares will give you less income, but a better load factor. Also, smaller airlines could benefit from this by having contracts to fly to a certain destination (which based on the normal system would get 0 pax per week) but in real life are connected once a week by a charter.

I guess it takes too much to implement this, but could be a nice addition to the game

"Charter" sounds like a good idea, because itīs closely tied to transporting PAX. Maybe a second addition after CARGO.
Could maybe managed by opening up yet another demand system.Contracts to be signed for special relations/PAX number for a fixed timespan/fare, somehow like fuel contracts.Relating that, "wet lease" comes to mind.
This sounds more like a "feature request" topic...

Contracts sound like an interesting addition : if/when CARGO is implemented, I'd consider some form of contracting would complement it well, and reflect RL too; I'd think they would have to be simplified somewhat though.

In my opinion I believe it could be an option for when you start your airline for being a charter airline e.g. like airline around the world, who are travel groups and believe it would make Airway Sim more interesting and a challenge which you would have goals to set.
