How do you know you have been cursed by a deathwatch?
« on: April 19, 2013, 04:20:04 AM »
Given the spate of bankruptcies in recent months (and years), we have noticed that several people have restarted several times, so in their honor, we offer this top five list.  If you have met these criteria, you know you are in trouble.

1.  Your number of fleet types exceed the number of planes in your fleet...
2.  Your accountant said that it would be a good idea to buy a Pliatus as your own personal plane...
3.  Your mother thought that leasing that fleet of 727's for 15 years was a great decision because she thought trijets were sexy.
4.  You thought that you could open a base at an Elite dominated airport after your fifth plane arrived (or at any point)...
5.  You can't stop yourself from maxxing out your loans to grow even faster, knowing that you don't actually have to pay back the money if your cash balance is negative...

Cheers.

I ran about a dozen Pilatus planes for several years in MT7. It wasn't actually profitable but it never killed me either. If a competitor had never showed up to challenge my monopoly on Tahitian domestic travel, I could have ran them indefinitely. Typically when I do borderline psychotic things it either works or at least doesn't do me in. When I do BK a serious effort, it's either from stiff competition or expanding too rapidly. In this round it was a combination of both of those plus my current experiment of trying to run nothing but older used planes as some real world airlines do. Hasn't worked out too well.

Thought I would bring this thread back to life - given the raging effects of lower demand and higher fuel have cursed the MT universe with lower profits and angry CEO's.

Don't worry.  Some day we will look back at 520 fuel and rejoice ;)

Ooof just woke up to this, not good news for my poor little airline!

How long do the affects of these events usually last? I've got a load of new aircraft arriving but thanks to a D-check and this downturn do not have the money available to route them, so my revs are being eaten away even more!

It will gradually improve after a few months, should be back to normal after a year. That's at least how it was in the past.

Don't think I will make a year!  :'(

It happened at literally the worst possible time for me. It seems mad that you have to pay leases on planes that sit idle, as you can't afford to open new routes in order for them to make money!

I think I'd make it if I could get my aircraft running, as it is though 2,000,000 a month losses on an a/c sitting around gathering dust will be what puts me under, otherwise I think I could clear my debt as things stand.
