[-] Changes to aircraft ordering delivery times
« on: October 16, 2019, 06:33:36 PM »

I really think that the delivery schedule for newly-ordered aircraft needs some optimisation.

I ordered 58 aircraft that will take over 2 years to get delivered. The producer has between 34 and 44 slots per month, and they're giving me two planes a month, leaving up to 42 slots idle each month, assuming no other orders. I'm not suggesting that I get my 58 planes in 6 weeks and everyone else should wait for theirs, and I do appreciate that for much more in-demand aircraft, the delivery schedule will get busy. But at the moment, I'm waiting for 2 years to get 58 planes when, in total, as I speak, there are 74 total planes of this type on order, leaving about 90% in green. This isn't how things work in the real world, leaving 90% of your capacity free in the off-chance you'll get a deal.
(not sure if that re-written-looking URL points to exactly what I'm seeing for the SE-210 11R production slots view)

There is a defined minimum time, in days, between two incoming aircraft. The number of available production slots is not a factor there. I see you are getting a new plane about every two weeks which is the normal rate. The CRVL prod.line has a strong rate of 45/month now but due to slow orders it's slowing down next year and since the line has been busy but it's winding down now makes it look a bit sparse.

Seems to be working as originally intended, and no changes planned to this aspect for now.
