It's been some time since I last played the game, but I still see an inconsistency regarding the 777 prices, compared to it's competitor A330/340 (they are the competitors, not the MD11).
While the on-demand A330 is sold at 168M the most expensive, the B772A is sold at 214M while being less fuel efficient and heavier.
The A343 competes vs the 772ER both in capacity and range. The 340 is yours at 211M the most expensive, but the 77E is given away at the discount price of 243M the cheapest at a similar range to the A343 (not really).
There's a whooping 439 777s flying and 698 produced in total with 904 new orders. You could argue that the model is just starting to operate. Well, precisely.
The A330/340 is sadly doing very bad, a total of 1725 across al models flying and 2125 produced since the first one rolled out of factory. It really shows that the model is dead, 1736 new orders for Airbus. Truly a financial disaster.
Wait, it gets better, the A346 is selling at 220M. I wonder what would John Boeing say about the B77W price...
My understanding of the pricing system is that it is driven by demand. We can see it in the 320 vs the 738, especially since the latter is just getting certified.
My problem with this is that I have never ever seen the A330 rise its prices according to the orders received, compared to the 777s. The A332 is still far cheaper than the 763 even though it has 940 unfilled orders (it hasn't been certified yet), granted the 763 nuber rises to 1900 acft flying (since the late 80s...).
Is the 777 price hardcoded to be more expensive than the 330/340? I know it is IRL but, since this is driven by demand, why has the 330/340 never got to the level of the 777?
