I have 81 pilots, 15 cabin crew, 55 Route strategy employees, and 120 Customer Service employees ?

These stats seem wrong to me...
Comments ?

Customer Service seems to be a function of the number of destinations you fly to (total routes) and how often you fly to them (flights/week).  Which makes sense as every destination is going to have counters that need to be manned.  So if you're flying to a lot of destinations with relatively few aircraft, you can very easily have many more CS employees than operational ones.  Chances are you have a lot of Ground Service as well for the same reason.

I'm guessing with so many pilots and so few crew, you fly a lot of little puddle jumper flights all over and/or to a few destinations a lot of times per day.

I am hopefully able to introduce a function later on where you can decide if you hire your own service & handling staff to every airport you fly or to outsource that service. Now those numbers are just guesstimated according to num of routes + planes..


And yet again (search the forum a bit) the actual numbers what you have is not the key. The staff side is meant to generate a lump sump of costs that is in certain range compared to your incomes/expenses. Splitting it "totally realistically" to each staff group is hard, especially when the whole staff groups itself have been simplified rather much for the sake of usability.
