[-] Game world #3 extreme small aircraft penalty for B737 MAX9
« on: October 25, 2015, 09:01:29 PM »
I just started recieveing B737 MAX aircraft, with the idea to replace aging B757:s, which I succesfully used on long haul routes, up to max range of the planes.

With the MAX 9 cf dropped from high 80& with the B757 to 25%-30% on 3400 NM routes. Is that reasonable? On slightly shorter, 300 NM routes there is no penalty.

Also flying very tiny 737-700ER over 4000 NM works ok and gives gives much less penalty than the MAX 9!

The model on small planes and long routes is based on the size of the aircraft AND the demand of the route. So flying a 737 on a route with let's say 3000nm distance 300/day demand is not a good idea, but 3000nm and 150pax/day will work better. (So if you are comparing things between planes use the same route.)   ..in other words the model forces you to use "proper" planes on the longer & high demand routes, as you cannot stick 10x B737s on LHR-JFK for example and make it work.

But with this in mind and without knowing any details, I'd say it works as intended.

But the MAX 9 is almost same size as B757... but the penalty much more severe.

here I operate succesfully with a 737-700ER...

while these do not work at all with MAX 9

Like I said earlier, it's about the demand too. Baku route is 400pax/day so it's not a good idea to fly several daily 737 flights there. The other route, Amman, has only 150pax demand.
