I'm new in here and recently I've finished a full BW1 (my first game ever), which was nice, but as stated "easy" (ended at 5th spot at aitline stats with fleet of 599 aircrafts, 11KKK quarter revenue and 432KK passengers transported). I'm willing to get more challenging game by joining one of the GW (probably #4 since a lot of time remains in there). Due to it I have few questions regarding billing & game mechanics :
- I know that joining a world costs 5 CR (what included 1st week of playing). What if I close my airline/go bankrupt and I will to play again in that world? Do I need to pay another 5 CR to do so or once paid 5 CR allow me to enter the world as many times as I wish?
- I'm willing to do some kind of smaller but premium airline (managing nearly 600 aircraft took me a lot of time that I dont have now
), where I want to focus on punctuality, company image and passenger comfort. Is it possible to play as such? How are passengers reacting to ticket prices for more "comfortable" seats? For instance, if instead of 100 high density seats I make 80 comfortbale seats, can I adjust the price 20% higher without much loss of PAX?
- At the end of BW1 I had 12 fleet groups and was able to make nice profit (got some loss last year due to giving up the game - got tons of ordered aircraft doing nothing), I know that at real gameworlds having as least number of fleet groups is crucial. Which one do you propose? I'm certain of 777 fleet group since it covers ~400 & ~300 capacity groups (thou best profit I made from A380 at routes US - UK). A300-600R is awesome at shorter routes due to just 120 mins (for 1% punctuality) TAT while still having over 300 PAX. But what about others? Do they have to be from same manufacturer to lower the comonality cost or it doesnt matter?
Thank you in advance for your answers !
