Retrofitting has many uses, and it may be a cool addition to Airline Empires. Retrofitting could range from engines, cabin, and the control surfaces (some parts of retrofitting already exist). This could help out airlines that only have the choice to purchase old aircraft to compete with stronger airlines, and it could make this simulator a more enjoyable experience for people who like to preserve aging aircraft. It could be programmed so that aircraft may only be retrofitted to an extent so that it would be controlled.

But understand that aircraft that become too old to keep flying cannot be retrofitted, so after an X amount of years in service, you must scrap it.

That's what the "retrofit to an extent" does.

EAL has a point... A retrofitted passenger plane does nothing as all passenger planes have a certin amount of takeoffs and landings they can do before they cant be used anymore (Normally when cargo airlines take them and turn them into something like BCF models) but I agree it would be a cool feature.

I like it because a lot of airlines do this e.g BA
