Hey all - I've made a few great blue pax spamliners in my day, but don't think I'll ever top (or want to top) the eternal glory that is O1's The Empire. 

 

 

Accordingly, I want to share a simple trick that can quickly destroy a blue pax spamliner. I doubt anyone is obsessive/efficient enough to replicate The Empire, but wide knowledge of this trick should ensure that no blue pax airline ever scales up so big again. 

 

Can anyone guess or does anyone know the trick? I've run a bunch of blue pax spamliners in my day; nobody has ever pulled it out against me. In the now-ending round of O1, I used the trick - though not to its full extent - to frustrate a blue pax airline so much that it folded and disappeared within a couple days. I didn't fully use the trick because I didn't want him to turn it around against The Empire. 

 

BTW - Blue Pax Spamliner means an airline that operates between hubs relying only - or mostly - on transfer or "blue" passengers as opposed to O&D or "green" passengers. 

 

-----------------------

 

But I won't divulge until O1 resets and The Empire's fate - coterminous with the world's as prophesied long ago - is realized. 

 

Until then, will be curious to see if any of you know or can guess the trick. (Hint - it's not, as so many try, to undercut the routes).

I think I know the trick..... well one way or the other.... right now in S4B. I'm butt-loaded full of hubs..... so

with hubs being the thing at the moment.... I seem to notice that all I need to do is fiddle the prices down

till the plane is full........ though it's not a total blue-line like you mention. it still has about " at least " 400

routes that are more blue then green.....

now, as to kill my routes, those blue routes....all it seems to take is another airline to run that route

to kill me... my route......

so yaaa, I think I know the answer......

Build a bigger and better spamline? That's how they usually think.

Tropical Airlines

No. This does not work for reasons I'll explain later.
Many airlines tried this against The Empire; all failed.

Whatever it is, maybe other blue pax spamliners don't want this information to go public.....

Out of consideration for airline chieftains who were loyal allies to The Empire, I'll hold off on revealing how to destroy a blue pax spamliner for now.

Guess that's somehow right.. But not fully. Never made an attempt on a spamline. Guess I won't ever put so much effort and time into AE.

 

But what If you're that big that you can lower your fee on the spamliners routes to 1$? And on top you offer that much seats that your load factor just scratches 100% with 1$ fee on the route...

 

This would be my attempt if I ever did it..

Take this quiz to know whether your airline is a Miranda, a Carrie, a Charlotte, or a Samantha!

Did you just assume my airline's gender?

How do destroy a blue pax spammer? Simple: **** their spouse and get them fired

So go and dance yourself clean
Go and dance yourself clean
You're throwing marks into pieces
Baby, they're arguments, the pieces

Back in the day I was hared in r5 for destroying a spam line once you realise it then it's a very easy task.

My recommendation is play smart and review your competitors aka number of flights prices etc and then adapt

What is the purpose of this topic if you don't tell us? You're like that girl on facebook who makes a post about having a bad day and feeling down and when you ask her she says she doesn't want to talk about it.

As I said upthread, I am holding off on the reveal for now because a valued ally from last round would like me to. 

 

That said, this shouldn't be toooo hard to figure out if you're really trying to hit a blue pax spamliner. I've seen lots of airlines spend a lot of time - seemingly hours - trying to destroy my airlines without success. A little bit of testing would have revealed the proper method. 

 

Important clarification:

This about BLUE PAX spamliners only. Several posters in this thread appear not to understand that distinction; perhaps they don't understand what a blue pax spamliner is at all.

Well I decided to win a few more easy rounds. Haven't ever played outside O1 before, enjoying that for now.
