I've searched under "frequency" and "appropriate", and didn't find any clear answer to what I'm looking for so I hope I can get some answers here.
It seems that some things have changed since I last played long, long ago.
1. It seems like you get penalized for having 2x/3x daily flights now? It just takes what you would earn for 1x daily and divide it by 2/3. I remember before putting a second daily on a route gave you slightly better returns immediately
More specifically, I have a route that is around 300nm with 1500pax demand. I have about 7 daily flights and am getting 25% LF. However I am not over the demand, just matching it.
2. It seems departures/arrivals in the time intervals between 2200-2300 and 0500-0600 are penalized more than before? True or I'm just crazy?
3. Any rough idea on what is "appropriate aircraft size"? There is a 600pax demand route of ~2000nm, with competitors. I don't really want to put a 300 seater at first, but rather a 180 seater. But system tells me that I will be penalized? What is the balance between demand and distance?
