Can't make p[rofit on any route out of LHR. That does not seem right to me.

It takes up to 24 hours after the reset until you actually start making money on routes. The price and profit will change over time.

I think possibly the sim is trying to simulate how startups have to break into a market? Everyday I see I can set prices a bit higher and more routes are profitable. It slows airline growth in the beginning but I also feel that it also helps prevent the airlines in places like LHR and HND from growing by a massive margin over players in places like SAN or DAL who will eventually compete with the major airlines.

I do agree though that demand seems too low on many big routes. Zmapper mentioned DEN-MSP only filling a Q400. I suppose that this would be fair but only if prices were like $800 from the start to simulate entry instead of a measily $150-$200 for example that many artery routes had on real world days 1 and 2.
