Has anyone tried the C919? Ive just seen it has a fuel flow of 11,827 and a pax capacity of 190... It has roughly the same seating capacity as the A320NEO and 737-MAX8, but has less fuel flow than both of them. It's range is it's only disadvantage... but thats no problem if your using it domestic in US/China/Europe.


Just seen this from a while back, I used the C919 for China Western Airlines recently, replacing most of my A320-200s. Mostly it worked really well and they are super efficient, but that short range did mean I had to leave a few A320s running...

Tu-114 (220 seats). Very profitable, unique and cool to have as it is the fastest turboprop aircraft in existence. The C919 also has incredible fuel flow (11.9k), with 190 seats. I have made $300K+ DOP on one aircraft (conventional airline), making it a great choice for medium-high density short haul in the late game.

I must admit that for a low cost airline from the 70's thru early 2000's, I find the DC-9 family to be a fabulously cheap fleet to run, with maintenance costs staying less than most competing aircraft right up until 30-35 years old.

 

It is also worth noting that high depreciation means that they are an absolute steal after around 10 years old on the used market.

I'm not even new but what aircraft is better between 3000-5000 range with 300+ Pax and another aircraft between 300-1500 range to cover routes with 450 economy pax demand like that

3k-5k range I like Tu-114 (1960s), L-1011 (1970s), 767-300/ER/A310-300 (1980s), A330-300/A340-300 (1990s, 2000s), A350-900 (2010s+)

 

.3-1.5K Il-18 (1960s), BAe Trident (1970s), 737-300/400 (1980s) A320 family (1990s, 2000s), C-919 (2010+)

Pretty much this, but an honourable mention to the Boeing 757 family for the 450 pax demand segment.

 

The -200 is a competitive 239-seater, available from 1983-2005.

The -300 is an excellent 295 seater available from 1999-2005 and the stats are so good it's basically Boeing's dream "middle-of-market" 797.

 

A black horse I've yet to experiment with is the Tu-214, a 210 seater available from 1996 to game end. Slightly higher fuel burn but ridiculously cheap purchase price.

I've yet to try the Boeing 757 family myself... As regards the Tu-214, it's a fantastic aircraft to use for a young airline getting started, because it's so cheap it meant I got on a sound financial footing quickly, and was able to expand sufficiently that I was eventually able to buy enough A320s/A321s to replace them all before the end of the game. Same goes for the Il-96-400, which has a roughly equal seating capacity to the A330-300, albeit with a shorter range.

Thanks for the advice on the Tu-214. The 757-200 wasn't very good price-wise until recently when the price of the A32X family, amongst other aircraft were raised considerably. Now, the 752 is cheaper than an A321-200 and when winglets arrive, will match the A321 in fuel burn.

I´ve got one, one time.

The plane was quite decent, they are more fuel efficent and faster as the A320NEO, but they need a longer Runway which is for airports with a runway length of under 6000 feet a problem.

They're also very short-range, which can also present a challenge if you're using them to replace the A320 or Boeing 737 family.

For around 400 seats, the Boeing 787-9 is by far the best plane out there.

No it isn't. The A350-900 has a slightly higher max payload than the 787-9 but a smaller fuel flow. Even the A340-300 has a better fuel flow in game terms...

Using both A350-900s and 787-9s at the moment on my airline, profits are definitely higher with the A350s.

737-300/400 were the planes I started profiting with.Try to lease 2-6 before you start buying/leasing other planes.
