Millions.......Just How?
« on: March 15, 2011, 11:39:38 AM »

Hi,

   I was just wondering how on earth some airlines generate vast ammounts of
value ie, over 200mil when only 11 days into a game, I have had a couple of goes
in game worlds and struggle to make reasonable cash to expand, then there's
the problem of no used aircraft ( I know a lot has been explained about used A/C),
for me to lease, and only having a small amount of cash I can't afford to lease
new A/C, so how do they get so much cash when only 11 days into a game, because
I'd Like Some As Well.

Please.

Cheers,

Steve.

In a way making money is a snow-ball effect. When the money starts coming in, you have more money to expand > more profits.



Few tips:

  • 1. Think carefully where you want to base your airline. LHR is probably not the best choice
  • 2.Be patient, don't rush into leasing planes even if you know the planes you see are efficient. This is also called fleet planning.
  • 3.Don't start with ATRs unless you know how to make it profitable
  • 4.Start with routes no one else is serving
  • 5.Don't open new routes yet. Add frequencies to the first destination (see 4)

These are just few basic advice, I know other people have many more to give.
