Hi folks,

 

Following-up my previous post about seat configuration, I'm revealing more of the results I've collected about the game's mechanics. I'm not sure how much of this I'll do -- as it puts me at a disadvantage to share my secrets -- but for now I have a few more posts planned.

 

Based on data I've collected, price per ticket is dependent solely on distance, and is described by a piecewise linear function with twelve regions. These prices are for round-trip tickets and are based on one-way distance:

 

<100 miles: $0.94 / mile

100-200 miles: $0.69 / mile

200-300 miles: $0.59 / mile

300-400 miles: $0.46 / mile

400-500 miles: $0.34 / mile

500-1500 miles: $0.28 / mile

1500-3000 miles: $0.24 / mile

3000-6000 miles: $0.19 / mile

6000-9000 miles: $0.16 / mile

>9000 miles: $0.13 / mile
