I started this post for 2 reasons. The first being so I can use these planes myself for budget airlines and second of all to advise people on planes. I would like to know it in the following categories:
->30 seats
- 30 to 70 seats
- 70 to 100 seats
-100 to 150 seats
-150 to 250 seats
-250 to 450 seats
- 450 plus seats.

PS. I know that DHC-6s, ATR 42s, ATR 72s/ Q400s, A318s, A321s, A330s, B747s and A380s are good.

220 seats would be the TU204-100..........it's speed can let it make 300,000+ per day on some routes. Extremely low base maint for it's size and also low monthly maint. Sweet little plane.

Big Plane

ATR-72-(600) for short haul no Atr42s and Q400s

i quite like the Q400's they serve me well.

Personally i think the Boeing 757 is the best for the 220-240 seat range as it is versatile and in my circumstances, making a good amount of money

Okay, I completely agree with you. The 72-600s have served me well but I know that A319-100s are brilliant. Also, the A350-1000. I use these AirBuses in S3-B for a budget airline.

A319LR has to be one of the best aircraft in game, perfect for anywhere, profitable too.

The A320, B738, and A380 are pretty profitable. At least, they are in my games. The A380 seems especially good even with a low seat count.

for me:
A320 family - always a good server

B737-800 or -600 only (unless it's Kaibaby :P )

Q400 is very nice, serves me brilliantly although later on (2012onwards) I order in ATR-72-600 unless I need them for short runway, in which case I keep the Q-series

E-Jets are great all-rounders

757's are just fantastic but impossible to replace, A321 just doesnt do it justice for me,both have their own markets to serve

A330 over 767 although when the game gets older, 787's are just the best

747-8i is a stunningly brilliant aircraft to have when possible, so profitable

Get the A340-300 instead - same cost, but more passengers and only slightly less range.
The Boeing 777-300 is great too.

737-600 beats the 700


but the 737-700 (or the 737-700ER) has more range (flexibility) when putting routes together

quote from topic "What is the biggest fleet you've ever had?"


Well, the demise of the latest Aurora Airways happened when I got too cocky and ordered 20 B732Advs, 10 B752s, upped my marketing, gave my employees pay raises and bonuses totaling over one billion upfront and an extra $300K a month. And then I went to bed :facepalm: I wake up and my airline was in deep debt XD .


no, I am cheap - I set all of my Median Pay Rates at $7 and the Reserves at 0%

also I stick to (at most) 3 or sometimes 4 aircraft types (A320,737, 737NG) though sometimes I will add in the 757's:
(I buy any version of these used though) as I operate my airlines as "point-to-point" (Southwest type) airlines

A318 w/ 2 CFM International (GE Snecma) CFM56-5B8/P - 2,839 mi range (A320 Family) only if for sale on used aircraft market

Well, you can either have more aircraft variants and have them all fitting to the routes or you can get an aircraft with much range and low pax count which you can spam on every route, but possibly isn't the best economic decision. (also regarding the A340-200 in moat cases)

I do not see the big thing about the A319LR, except for long haul-ish ops from smaller 'alternative airports' e.g. London Southend
