I want to know which aircraft is the game best for smooth playing like the title. Personally, I usually use tu-214 and b753, but I'm not sure if this is the right way to game

Pretty easy answer. A330-300, A340-300, A320-200, B737-400, B737-800, B737-900ER, B757-300, B777-200, B777-300.

 

That's it.

For some reason the 757-300's data was incorrectly entered and its cheaper than the 757-200 so it ends up being very efficient

Depends are what you are looking for. 

I find Twin Otters and similar sized 19 seaters to be profit makers for example, as I build regional airlines.

To be fair, in real life, B757-300's fuel capacity is the same as B757-200, same goes for the engines. Hence the lack of range, even thought it got higher MTOW. With more room to carry 25% more passengers, it made the plane extremely efficient.

Why do people use A320 or B737 a lot instead of tu-214? I don't know why they use the more expensive B737 or A320 even though the difference in fuel consumption is not big

Because TU-214 is not fuel efficient.

Fuel flow per seat, the CL-44, Tu-114, A340-300, A350-900, 747-8I, A380-800, COMAC 919, A319-100LR, A319NEO, and 777-300 (not ER) are the most efficent from the top of my head.

I suppose it depends on the segment.

 

for long haul flights pre 2010, i recommend the 767, and for later on, i recommend the 787

 

for short haul pre 2016, the 737-800, and for later on, the 737 max.

 

for low demand the ATR series. 

 

im fairly new to the game, only joining with my other account in 2020, but ive never been able to run a consistently profitable airline with less than about 7 ATRs, and never with any smaller planes, no matter how many.

As others have pointed out, the Tu-214 and other Russian-made aircraft aren't the most efficient carrier for its size. So unless people are strictly operating an airline during the cold war in Russia, they usually will go for more efficient Airbus, Boeing or sometimes Bombardier and Embraer jets.

2000's : All mentioned in 1980 and 1990's + 737-700ER/900ER & A380. Can be considered too is 777-200LR, 300, 300ER, and Embraer 170/190 series.

2010's : All mentioned in 1990's and 2000's + 737MAX, 747-8, 787-8/9/10, A330-800/900, A319/20/21NEO/LR, A350-900/1000. Can be considered too is C919, A220 and Embraer E2 series.

 

Above is a good thing to follow. Except some aircraft from the 80s (767s, A320 family, and 757s) Those continue in production all the way up until the late 2010s and even are still built today. So you can capitalize on these aircrafts as well as operate newer craft as well. 

 

Whatever your preference though.

Tu-214s are great for starting out with since they are much cheaper than the equivalent Airbus or Boeing models; ditto the Il-96-400s. The 747-8I is a superb choice later in the game, being more efficient than a 777-300ER...
