Passenger Preference for Jets?
« on: January 01, 2015, 04:27:44 AM »
Is there a passenger preference for jets in this world? There doesn't seem to be so, but it would make sense that people would want to spend less time flying long distances on a jet. Does this kick in at a certain time, or is it not a factor?

The main driver away from props will be 1. overhead costs relating to the number of frames needed to fly long haul and 2. "the plane is too small" warning that will appear over time.

Also, I filed a bug report on this matter in August of 2013 that is still open...

I am at a loss why my jets do not dominate routes vs slower aircraft.
