Recently in R4, a relatively new airline went from having a handful of planes to leasing out 200 737-400's, 60+ 747-300's, 16 747-400's, 185ish A320-200's, 8 A320-100's, and several A330-300's and A340-200's. This airline now have a fleet of 500. the 22nd largest in the world. However, his valuation is the 147th in the world. Something must be done about this in the future. Do I operate one of the largest fleets in the world? yes. Do I only have the 39th highest airline valuation? yes. But it simply is not realistic to have a start-up suddenly acquire 490ish aircraft off the Used Market. I do not know what exactly to suggest in order to fix this problem, however some rule or regulation must be addressed.
We could change it to having your valuation determine the max number of aircraft you can operate. But again, I don't know exactly what should be done. I just felt as if this must be brought to the attention of the developers in order to fix/stop this from happening in the future.
