Hi

Has the demand changed from BETA 3 as some routes that did have 300, 400 PAX a day are now less than 50? This is US domestic also.

Nah, I don't think any flights go direct from JFK-OAK, with the exception of JetBlue. OAK is secondary to SFO so flights from OAK usually go 1-stop.

Just looked into JetBlue, they offer a 3xday nonstop between OAK & JFK on an A320. So the pax should be ~140 x 3 = 420.

The game year is 1992, it seems like strictly using numbers from today wouldn't be correct, either.  Demographics change.

Except, these routes from JFK that are regional (the ones listed above) all have seen reduced pax since the 90's, due to Amtrak, more driving, etc. :)

Amtrak??? That's all I have to say.

Yes, the NE Corridor (Owned and operated by Amtrak ;D) between Boston and Washington DC, has taken pax from the airlines.

Most of the BOS-NYC-DC shuttles that existed in the 80's and 90's have been broken up or reabsorbed into the mainline carrier.
