Yeah, I don't get it... The description says:


"The game is set in the modern era and only large jet aircraft are available and the travel demand in the long-haul routes is enhanced."


But there are 1237 A319s waiting in storage to be bought, while there're only 267 A333s, when it's obvious that A319s were not designed to cross the atlantic and the game discourages it thru penalties.

There is still some short haul but not many people have used those planes so many still in storage, Whereas with the A333s everyone needs/wants them so not many are left.

The used market is crap and my competition managed to snap up 35 or 40 aircraft in the time it took me to get 7.  The production line is quickly backing up and I will basically have  only 4 new aircraft this year unless I start throwing commonality to the wind.  I understand that is part of the challenge of the game, but it is just a little bit frustrating at the moment.  In retrospect, I should have A. gone bigger than 767's or B. Increased ticket prices from the get go.  I'll live.  Nothing to see here... these aren't the droids you're looking for... move along   ;)

Yes it seems that the proportion between 'large' and 'very large' planes when the game started wasn't the best, considering most of the demand is for long haul. However the production rates of the new planes are much higher than usual (up to 2x higher) so the queues for new planes shouldn't be excessive.

Well there's now almost 1-2 years waiting time on new planes, and the used market is really meh.
Kinda hard to get anything going  :(

Note; a bit more planes of the 'very large' class has been generated to the world. This may cause some inconsistencies with the MSN numbers, since normally this is not done. But this time an exception was made since (like I wrote previously) the initial a/c generation produced quite much 'large' planes instead of 'very large' ones.

wow, widebodies are always gone within seconds.


Even refreshing every 25 minutes won't get you a plane.



I think I'll quit the used market and go to buy some lottery tickets. I'll have better chances.
