I've been playing this for years, and asked this question so many times.
Why only one, bank account? No airline could or would ever be able to operate like this!
There needs too be a 'Commercial Overdraft/Line of Credit' (Small first off, but increases with credit rating. And not liable on assets)
a 'Maintenance account' to keep $$$ aside for maintenance, C & D Checks. Line Maintenance, which is done on 'Cycles' (A,B,C & D checks) not specific dates.
Currently, one could have a 737 up for lease. Not on operations, so not flights. But still Counting down on the time to a C check. Its not flying. Checks are on cycles!
I think the ability to allocate money, to where it needs to go. Pay the bills, maintenance, expansion, fleet upgrades. Ya just can't budget on it. With the current accounting system.
I can't see, where I'm going wrong (on paper so too speak) . I'm not, but we should be able too look at the paperwork and see where too make changes. (with some work needed too work out sure, but not the current....wtf?)
in short, there needs to be different Bank Accounts (with fees). One account, is not how its done.
Its a great game, truely is! But, It really could be ('F*u-*i*g Awesome) With some accounting changes!
Cheers, great work all the same
