I started this game late, and currently have four 707-420s as well as one F28 (was supposed to be two but couldn't find a second).
Despite the high fuel prices (I'm hedged at 155 at the moment vs. 166, and have an 8% off contract for $56k/month) I have been able to stabilize my profits at around $140k/week.
But I have a C check coming in 2 weeks! Because the only four 420s that were available when I joined had C-checks ranging from 5 months to 10 months out, and I bought them all. And the 5 month one is coming.
I think that the $600k price of the C check, combined with the loss of the revenue from that plane, will BK me. Currently, my cash on hand is slightly negative (-$200K) although I have net profits of $140k/week, so my cash should be positive within 2 weeks--but I won't have the $600K needed for the C check.
Is there anything I can do to avoid BK at this point? Should I fire the people staffed on that plane while it is in C check?
Should I just let the plane sit unused until I have the $600k cash for a C check?
Or should I just reset and start again?
I have been in game for about 5 game months now, and have a reasonably good deal on fuel, and am finally getting near-full load factors on my planes. But I can't afford the C check, as far as I can tell.
