How to calculate "other" fee before starting a route.

24 August 2019 - 08:18 AM

Hello AE forums. I was wondering if there is a way to calculate the "other" section of expenses on flights before starting them. I'm trying to run a small airline running regional routes using the PC12, and for internationals I have found it difficult to see if they will make money other than doing it by trial and error. I'm a pretty big numbers person so I try to plan out routes before adding frequencies and such, but finding out if they will be profitable has been difficult as it relates to the "other" section of expenses on routes. For example, I had a route running Switzerland to Sweden and Switzerland to Greece where other is my biggest expense preventing me from making money. At first I thought it was because these are international routes, but then I started Switzerland to Austria which seemed to make money even though it is an international routes. So what is factored in the "others" expense that I can calculate in reducing to open more variable routes? Thanks!

How to make a creative livery

05 January 2019 - 11:31 PM

Hello AE community, forgive me if this isn't the correct category, but I would just like to figure out how people make such creative and wonderful liveries for their virtual airlines. I have tried my best to get inspiration from real-world airlines and some amazing liveries I have seen on here, but I'm always afraid if I take to much inspiration from these they might end up just being a re-skin of a current airline. Often my liveries come out looking very simple, bland, and boring, but my company might have a decent backstory and logo. So I'm just interested to know, how do people come up with cool designs?


Here is an example of some of what I have made, and I'm trying to give this airline a complete rebrand, I'm just having trouble coming up with a livery that's stylish and modern.



How to upload images in to a reply to a thread

Hello AE forums, this might seem like a bit of a silly question but how do you upload an image into a reply to an already started thread? I see that you can attach files in a new thread and I have seen the image button but I do not understand where do I get the URL from to post it as a reply. I am interested in uploading some of my aircraft liveries to get some feedback and criticism.

Here is what I am able to see on my screen:
