Company Image issue
« on: July 07, 2013, 10:03:39 AM »
In previous games a gentle marketing touch at the beginning has CI climbing nicely, at least from 5 past the 25 mark. In this game despite the same strategy, it climbed predictably to about 7, and has then started freefalling... and I have no idea why.

Average aircraft age is around 5 years. Punctuality was a bit off around 60% to start (I have no idea why with turnarounds at 1%) but seems to be climbing now (again, for no apparent reason since I haven't changed anything).

Any thoughts anyone?

Thanks
Jimbo.

Low punctuality is the reason for the bad CI, best guess for low punctuality is that your first two planes had a repair % level below 80. You can always look at the delay graph and see exactly what was causing them. And with only two planes, a little bit of bad luck can drop your numbers a lot. Once you have more planes, you should see punctuality consistently better, and so CI should climb normally.

Ok - many thanks for taking the time to respond.
I saw punctuality below 60% at one point, so perhaps that is it. Time will tell....

Exact same thing happened to me...

look at this

www.airwaysim.com/forum/index.php/topic,47928.msg267092.html

Now, whitout touching anything, punctuality is 77.1% (better), but too short turn arounds are 52.07% of my delays... completely out of scale since I have all my flights on 1% turnarounds...

My image took a hit too, for no apparent reason.  I didn't notice what my punctuality was doing at the time though.

Mine has finally stopped the freefall and started to climb...




Punctuality is now at 84%, but too short turn arounds still explains 46% of my delays, which is not a number I'm comfortable with (especially with 1% turns)

You all have a small fleet and is winter time, apparently a bad one with many delays and cancellations. Not very difficult to be delayed more than 50% even with good turnaround schedules.
With those numbers you´re bound to be hit, especially because you have small marketing actions at the beginning.

Yes, it was a terrible winter, and it hit hard, but winter aside, the main delay reason was always short turn arounds... even in the worse of the winter, short turn arounds was 36% of delays, while weather was 25%....

now that winter has passed, short turns explains 56% of my delays, which I think is too much for an entire 1%turn schedule...

Not to mention Jet Age games take forever to climb company image.
