 dont you think that as you add new aircraft and automatically new staff your airlines image should take a bit of a hit as less experienced staff will not provde the same level of service, this may slow growth realistically

No. Staff is trained before they start working for you. And remember this will have an impact on smaller airliners aswell, meaning their position get only worse,so getting the opposite effect of what you propose.

After having the exhaust on my car changed, it occurred to me that increased maintenance and servicing could be a way of slowing growth at the start of the game.

Brand new cars (not like mine  :laugh:) - depending on the make or engine type - are often serviced more in the first year of their life.  Maybe this could be introduced in a smiliar way for aircraft in the game.

A D-check, for example, could be introduced after 1 or 2 years on new aircraft.  This would make a huge dent in a carriers early profits and it is usually the fastest growing airlines that have the new orders too.  This would also keep the used market lively for longer, as airlines may wish to avoid the early D-checks.

Thoughts?

What about randomly upcomming events like:
The aircraft maufacturer announces, that some problems with the landing gear /navigation computer/what ever else of the aircraft type where discovered. Due to this,
-all aircraft of this type has to be grouded for xx days.
or
has to be sent to a additional b or c check imediately.

(A bit more a feature request, maybe)

I īm not sure, but I think the software now uses the RL data for checks,so we should keep it like it is.
