Dumping?
« on: April 30, 2008, 04:17:44 PM »
i've heard that it's been problems with "dumping" of prices on other online airline simulators.. players who sets prices to $1 on some routes, to get rid of other airlines. of course, this happens irl to, but it's forbidden in ?most? countries to operate with ticket prices below cost prices, if the reason is to get rid of other airlines. will it be any protection against these issues in airwaysim?

There is a minimum price limit that one can set for the routes, it's something like $10 or so (depending on the game year). That does not fix the problem still, but here the calculation of the pax distribution is "a bit" more advanced than just "who's got the lowest price". Once it's all done it will take into account for example the following things: price, dep/arrival time, frequency (how many times a week flown?), company image and reliability (+ staff morale or similar), image and age of the route (new airlines need to make more marketing to get known that they are operating on a new route etc), and also inflight service levels and other things. Some of these are not yet modeled but should be included..
