In Topic: Purchased Aircraft Not Showing Up In Available Aircraft Listing

03 March 2018 - 04:04 PM

It's happened to four aircraft recently. It's an on-going issue. They do eventually show up--as in up to 1-2 game years later. In fact, one I purchased a few days ago is now available as of this morning. They don't count against your utilization until they "appear".

In Topic: how create a good IFS

It's impossible to have a 5-star (and most likely 3 and 4-star) IFS and break-even.


Just be comforted by the fact that AE passengers have unlimited disposable income and will pay whatever you charge. They may not like it, but you'll make money--which is most important.

The easiest solution is to stop playing Open Worlds.

In Topic: What caused some airlines to drop in valuations rapidly?

02 December 2017 - 08:44 PM

It's a simple strategy that will help you on the long run.


I keep track of competitors' DOP, fleet, and destinations. If their DOP increases (which means an increase in fleet and destinations), that means they're active. If their fleet or destinations decrease, that means they are probably inactive, and I attack their routes (especially once their gate utilization to a destination drops to 0%).


When a large airline shuts down, you can easily tell who picked up a bunch of planes off the used market by tracking their fleet size.

In Topic: Why Is It Important For Utiliziation To Be Low?

It's not important. Every single minute your plane sits idle, it's losing money. Your planes, no matter how old, will never suffer any major mechanical issue that prevents it from completing all of its scheduled flights per day. Your mechanics, no matter how little you pay them, are incredibly fast and efficient with maintenance, too.
