There are a few of us running modestly successful small-scale airlines in MT#7 now, by 'small-scale' I mean predominantly under 50seats aircraft, by 'successful' I mean we ain't BK yet.
My own feelings are that the changes made to the game have made that a more achievable goal than before but there are still some issues, mainly around staffing levels, that could be improved.
Anyhow, I would be interested to hear from those trying such airlines as to their experience so far, and also if it is worth thinking about starting an alliance dedicated to the 'small-scale' enthusiasts and perhaps those trying out the more unusual strategies or 'role-plays', such as the famed all-Soviet experiments in other game-worlds.
If nothing else, it might give us the chance to compare notes, swap tips and compare pizza recipes.
Response's here or in PM welcomed.
