I remember the time when I could play once a day, in the evening, and I had to be creative with my feelt choices(that's also how I ended up in love with A148s, 'cause Ejets definitively were beyond my reach).
I am on a couple of times a day, and i have missed every single launch of the A320's and B737's... Ended up having to wait 12 years into the 737 line before i could switch to them...

No, the lack of planes is not fixed if there a 10 years queue on 340 just after two hours from launch.

I never notice a similar behaviour in other game world.

But I agree: starting from 1950 is fun and I like it.

I think this is very demoralizing to players when they see this.

I think there is remedy:

Excluding the period when production slots can go gray, if the production queue for the next year or two is full, let's say > 95% full, just increase the production rate by 1 each month until the equilibrium is reached (that there are 5% of slots that are open).

This will not take advantage from the players who had money early and were able to place orders early, but late comers can still get a handful of deliveries per year.

As Sami said he'll now introduce variants for different engines at their RL date (announced it for the 747), there will be even less interest/need in rushing on a newly released model. And it means that the people rushing on the slots will have only "bad" engines, thus forcing either to:
 - way more "cancel to reorder" schemes, impoverishing the rich a little more (can't be a bad thing)
 - a little more care and patience on order, leading to less clogged backlogs.
Won't solve everything, but could already be a move in a good direction.

Won't work for the old planes for which a different engine means a new model (Connies, Brits, etc.), but will for everything from 70 onward, more or less.

Yeah,that will save a few players,but still the gross want to go to the new type.
I know we all complain,but remember in real how long it too for the 1st B787 could be delivered?

So is this game,we have to be patiant if we like it or not.
But people with more time have the advatage indeed.

Maybe a tip: check facebook 1 time less  and use the time for here to gett the airline on track.
Sometimes 1 time extra can make the difference ;)

Just a thought...

You should set-up a world called Chaos Era  - You should remove all and any rules. Everything is allowed - No complains are welcome and non will get any attention. It will be a Battle Royale :-)

I would prefer to complete our server move first, and hopefully it is done by end of the month. After that it is the time for a mini-challenge again.

Since you mention the server upgrade, any chance this is the first step towards having connections? You mentioned at some point servers would need more juice for calculating them.

Ahhhh connecting passengers is the final frontier....Any base in the world could become a super hub if scheduled well...No more everyone wanting LHR
