Author Topic: [-] 1st airline to order a type - 2nd one gets the launch discount?  (Read 259 times)

Hi.

In GW4 the 737-700ER was launched on 13 feb 2007, and I was quick to order it the same day it was launched. During the order I was not offered the launch customer discount, but I needed 10 of these so I ordered anyway. During the following game day I was still the only one who ordered this model. Now I see from the news feed that an airline that ordered 2 game days later got the launch customer discount. How is this possible? 10% discount in this case would equal the cost of 1 whole aircraft, $92.3 millions.

What has happened and why didn't I receive the discount I should have received?

Thanks!
Robert

There is a minimum order to get the discount which varies by type. It used to be 5 planes across the board, now I think it is more for some models than others.

At one point, I suggested that this (5 aircraft) should change that the number should go up.  Maybe it was implemented already.  :)

Well, this could explain it then. I have ordered 10 of another type previously and got the discount, so it never struck me that it could be a variable limit. Thank you for your help!  :)

For size class Large, 20 planes needed for the launch customer discount. So not a bug.

But I could add this info somewhere to the interface.. Like "order 10 more to get a discount".
