After a many year hiatus, I'm planning to come back to the game for the game world kicking off next week. Curious about how much the game has changed? In the old days, one of the best startup methods was leasing a ton of old 747's and running the short little domestic routes in Japan. Not sure if that's viable still, but wondering what I need to know in order to be at least semi-prepared for the new game. Is there any better way of looking at route demand from city to city ahead of time for the purposes of choosing a base city? I did see a post or two here that appears to indicate that flying small planes is now feasible? Any new tips about advertising, route planning etc?
Sorry to ask a ton of questions out of the gate, but I'd love to hit the ground running next week. Thanks all!!!
