ok. here's what you do. you base at either Taipei Songshan or Kaohsiung in Taiwan, then you get aircraft like the MD80 or MD90, and you fly only domestic if you're out of TSA, and only fly international from KHH (I suggest starting with Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Soeul ICH/GMP, Tokyo, Osaka, Kuala Lumpur, Beijing, Guangzhou, Ho Chi Minh City, Shanghai, Manila, Jakarta or Bangkok right away as those will be taken by airlines based there in the future, and there is decent demand so it'll get you some cash....) until you have gotten all the big airports in Asia (within your close proximity anyway). Then when you have enough money to buy, say, 5 MD90s/MD80s, you do that (lease of course) and fly them strictly for domestic flights. there is a good trick when doing domestic flights in Taiwan that will save lots of planning time, get your CI and RI image up, and will save a whole lot of money for you.....and that you will have to pm me for as it is a "secret recipe" of mine.
once you've done that, start flying connecting routes from KHH inside taiwan to completely serve Taiwan, and try and get as much of the KHH-TSA demand as there is 4000 of it!
anyhow, once you've done that, grab some more MD90s (i suggest the MD-90-30ER for longer routes and the MD-90-30 for shorter ones-it will save you money) and fly it on longer, but smaller demanding routes like Brunei, Cebu, Bali (i think), Nagoya, Guam, Ha Noi Bai, Fukuoka, Dhaka Zia (Bangladesh), Phuket, Phnom Penh, Sapporo, Siem Reap and some places in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakstan and Iran......don't bother with the Middle East, as there is no demand to there.......
for the further ones (aka Asia Minor [India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan etc.]), you should use B737-500s or A318s......shoot for smaller ones and set the seating for 90.
that sound good?
