Tyne Tees Airways and PacAir fined
« on: June 13, 2020, 08:42:02 AM »
Tyne Tees Airways (TTX) and PacAir (HIA) have been fined by the administration for aircraft trading actions in this game world.

TTX has been a member of the same alliance (Elite) in practically all game worlds, apart from this one. The extablished airline (HIA) has been supplying the newly started airline (TTX) with some affordable aircraft, along with some other alliance-mates. This is nothing to be alarmed of since alliance members have often offered a bit of aircraft help to their friends starting a new airline later in the game, and especially when the aircraft have been models which they were phasing our or were very old. At later stages the newly established airline has then joined the alliance.

However in this case which is now being penalized, the receiving airline (TTX) was 5+ years old and was receiving aircraft from HIA which were brand new from the factory and specifically agreed to be delivered to this airline (HIA ordering them at list price and selling them to TTX at the very minimum (non-alliance price [before the change was made], about $40mil a piece for a brand new A330). And while TTX was not the member of the alliance in this game world, his airline is and has been in the past the member of the alliance practically always (and is presently a member in every other game). While, very strictly speaking, this pattern is not literally against the rules, it can be judged that this goes way beyond the spirit of the rule and the whole idea of the separate alliance price limits for aircraft sales. Both players involved have acknowledged this too.

The penalty issued here is in form of cash for the receiving airline to "correct" the too little amount paid for the a/c which gave an unfair advantage, and in form of company image to the seller airline to remind of how things should be done.

TTX is fined for $1bn, and HIA is fined with a -40pts CI penalty.

nb. As a result the a/c pricing rules were changed, and there are no longer separate alliance and non-alliance prices. The feature will be adjusted & tuned later on, time permitting.

(note; this matter was already reported and investigated some weeks ago but due to very limited time available at my end the actions and announcement were delayed)
