I'm trying to order bristol britannia's  but when I order (buy or lease)  I get this:

Latest existing scheduled Britannia delivery: August 9, 1962

Delivery # Scheduled Date 1 August 23, 1962


I have to wait over 1 year in the game to receive my first delivery??!  Why?? I have NO orders for that aircraft yet.


Please help :'-(

Well, select view order history.   Then the aircraft in question.  And you can check the backlog of orders.  You aint the only person who has an order in....  you have to wait your turn.  In my game the Brittania has 257 on backlog and over 500 ordered.  Even yesterday getting aircraft in 1961 was not easy.  I have aircraft not coming until 1964

Since when does it depend on other players??  Omg If I had known that I would have ordered lots of them beforehand

If you can . Your credit rating  affects the amount of aircraft you can order early game. Buying bonds wrecks your credit.  Early on it 4 then 7, then 20, 70, ect. So most likely people with better credit order the aircraft before you. Until you keep in the black. Saying that, you waited too long, but you need to order aircraft anyways .  We all been through the learning curve.   Before this game ive never been able to keep up in the top ten. Because my orders lag behind the pack. Amongst other things. I aint figured out yet.

Im assuming as in real life there's a limit to how many aircraft can be pumped out. Order history can tell you which aircraft are available faster. And who ordered them  Also in negotiations it tells you the date you get yours too before you accept. Some  People order aircraft as fast as their credit rating allows.  its important in playing the top ten.

Most likely this is due to the fact that you have 5 x CL-44s on order. Given that the CL-44 is just a Canadian made version of the Britannia, AE considers (I'm pretty sure) them to be the same aircraft family, so your next Britannia would only come after your last CL-44.
