The small changes I made have had major impact I must say. Cancelations are now down to 1.9% and punctuality is rising too. I already had the turnaround times at 1% risk for cancelation, but I guess that's not quite enough. 5-10 more minutes and it made a noticable difference.
The marketing have had an impact too. Changed from 2 general marketing campaigns to 5 and with a more diversity. This in combination with the improved turnarouds have caused the CI to go up from 33 to 42 in just over 3 game weeks!
Transported passengers are up 5% for this period too. I have gotten one more aircraft during this time, but it was just a DHC-8-100 so that's only a small part of the increase.
Just changed the seats in the DC-9s for higher revenue. I put in 4 more C seats and was still able to have 25 more Y seats. And that's the standard seats. Don't have high density in any aircraft. Not even in the DHC-8-100 that has HD seats at default. Pure standard and only Y there. I only fly inside USA so far so I won't even look at better seats yet.
Now I have a problem with profitability instead hehe. Had to cancel one of the marketing campaigns. The CI is rising so fast now anyway that 4 campaigns might be enough. With the 4 remaining campaigns, I have about the same amount of costs as with the 2 previous campaigns, so numbers should go back to green now.
All routes are making profit. Low l/f on a few new routes but I can't afford any route marketing right now. But that will change as time goes by.
I will watch closely what happens during the day today. Some routes had gotten so high l/f that I raised the prices a bit on them too half an hour ago. Hopefully I can continue to raise prices for a while to get higher revenue and better profitability.
Interesting how a couple of small issues had that big of an impact. They made the balance change from one side to the other. But that only makes it fun, that you have to pay attention to details like that. Can't be too much of micro management though, but this level is fine I think. It shouldn't be too easy.
Have had a lot of costs making these changes. New slots and aircraft configuration mostly. Had to take a small loan to keep out of red but that will hopefully change the coming game weeks and months. Everything is looking good, numbers ar getting better and arrows are pointing in the right directions. I have high hopes to make it out of theese dark times hehe. Well, it has already started. Just need to monitor it closely and raise prices to speed it up even further I hope.
Thank you again guys! Your help saved my airline it seems like. Hopefully I will make profit next game week already. It looks good anyway. I'll get back with the progress.
