Your airline is very well run, but I noticed a few problems. Attached is an image where I marked the problems in red.

Problem 1: The utilization of your aircraft is too low. Aim for 19.5 or higher. Your average is below 19 which means you are making less money than you would be if you had those aircraft fly just another route or two.

Problem 2: You’ve pre-ordered several aircraft years before they start delivery. (A330 and 777) Don’t do this! This means your spending money on something you won’t get for a while instead of spending it on expansion now. You can’t really go and fix this, but just don’t do it in the future.


Other than that, this airline is great and is likely to remain in the Top 10 for the whole game.Attached File  E774D249-8E39-467B-8B31-70C026A7001E.jpeg   135.15KB   1 downloads

I’d also usually recommend going all-economy configuration, but that’s just because doing the exact first/business ratio is hard for new players. You seem to be doing well with it so no need to switch.

besides the critisms the others have made i don't think i can add much, although your mostly Boeing fleet does lower a maintence cost, a tip for the MD-81/82/83/88/90 is to use a 20C and 140Y configuration as it ratio is perfect, at least from my experience. I don't know much about other aircraft and there Econ/Business Class ratio however

Theoretically, the “perfect” ratio is 1F/3C/~50Y based on the ratio of 737/A320 being 3F/18C/152Y. Trial & Error is the main way to find these ratios, as while the first and business class ratios are easily calculated, economy is not. 
 

I’ll probably make some instructions on this in a different thread.
