How to do multiple leg routes?
« on: February 16, 2019, 02:09:25 PM »
Hello guys,

I'm only charged with an airline and creating routes to smaller aiports. the thing is that some airports have potential cargo that would not fill the entire aircraft, could I send this plane to another similar airport so it fill the rest of the aircraft? I can only see the option for refueling stops when planning a route.

That isn’t how this works. A-B-A only with stops for refueling allowed only.

A-B-C-B-A existed in a previous version of the game, and it was massively exploited by big boys: they were in reality creating phantom hubs and crushing everyone else.

However, filling a cargo plane is not necessary to make good money. Cargo is very lucrative, and my rule of thumb is that a plane with 60% load factor on only one of the legs is usually enough to break even - the rest is bonus (on only one of the legs because cargo is usually very asymmetrical).

True, although break even seems to be more lıke 15% total (30% on one leg ıf none on the other) for me. I guess ıt depends on aırcraft type, length of route etc.
