737-300

The plane is built out almost until the game ends.  Why are so many of you throwing your money into a plane that you will get so little use out of?

Because I get my planes at 1985 which means I can still use them for 7 years..... I'm only a small airline so eventually the costs of the 737-200's I have no will kill me.

Plus... what else should I spend my money on?

You are not who I am talking about.  It is the people who are ordering it now that I am worried about.

Any new order won't be delivered until 1988...   That means you will spend a TON on planes that you can have for a total of 4 years.

It is sad that the plane was built out for many many years in under 10 game days.... another case and point in my need for a date randomizer.  I am convinced people set alarms to make sure they are here ready to order planes when they will become available.

I hope you know the aircraft was launched in June 1981.. in ATB.. so a March launch is earlier then expected. Though the real life launch date is March I think..

In anycase it really means nothing when airlines have hundreds of millions to spend at a moments notice.

No "randomizer" can off set that fact. It would make little difference if the launch date was 6 months later or whatever. The aircraft would be in high demand non the less.

Four years is not an insignificant lenght of time. And why are you so worried about other people's airlines, anyway?  :P

It also depends on what your goal is.....

My goal is simply to cover the Indian domestic market.... I would have ordered the 733 anyway.. because they are simply the best planes for that market.. and I got lucky now being relatively high up in the list..

I am always looking out for others.  

I just want people to know if you buy a multi million dollar airplane that they should take the length of time they will get to use it into consideration.

There are many other planes on the horizon they can pick up without having to wait so long.

Well, the one's i've ordered will be to replace my currently young 737-200's, which will be over 10 year old in '88

Sure. In a situation like that people should lease instead of buy.

Problem is, leasing doesn't add to your company value. Money down the drain.

What's keeping you from buying the aircraft later when the leases run out? If you lease you need to put less money down at first and can expand faster.

expanding too fast = quick painful death.

expanding at just the right pace = top 10 at the end of the game.

Expanding too fast doesn't always end up as being broke. You just need to use the right routes.  ;D

Thats what I have been doing with my long haul planes. who can afford a 20mil per DC10 deposit at the start of the game? At this point however, I have enough cash to buy 20 planes and wait a few years for delivery.

Buying 20 at  time also has the benefits of 20%discount. basically 4 planes for free! you don't get that with leasing  :)
